This is it; this is the last box of the Build the Millennium Falcon subscription . . . kind of.
The side panels and airlocks all go in, and the Millennium Falcon looks nearly complete. Oddly, this month wasn’t too big of a build; the painting took longer to complete.
This is BIG; the mandibles are installed, the two halves of the Millennium Falcon are joined together, and all of the electronics are plugged in!
The port mandible is “completed,” and some more lights get installed. I also get my second defective part, and I learn a valuable lesson.
Missing parts, getting creative with the wall mount, and a possible new Build Journal.
Let’s get back on track with the Millennium Falcon! The first headlight gets installed.
Not only am I beginning another major part of the Millennium Falcon, but I am now 75% of the way through the build.
It’s another milestone as the Millennium Falcon’s upper hull plating is completed, and the iconic rectenna dish is assembled.
The replacement Japan parts have arrived! See how to fix an error on them.
The metal framework for the upper hull is finally complete, along with the machinery recesses.
I was hoping that the Japan parts would arrive in time so that I could finally crew down the starboard-side hull panels, but they’re going to take a few a few more weeks to arrive. Bummer!
