MPC/ERTL Slave 1 plastic model kit

Status: This project was a funny challenge.

I filled in all the joints with putty, smoothed it out and reinforced the structure. I chopped off the column and I built a second tier. I used sheet styrene, brass tubing and some detailed parts. I added two co-pilot seats in the second tier and few greebies and tubing in the cockpit.

I added also few tubes and parts in the bottom part of the back side based on CD Star Wars behind the Magic. Positioning and align major parts was a pain but the end result is very good. The biggest challenge was the painting because the paint scheme is complex.
