And then we came to the conclusion of it all, MF PART 17.
First off, gotta build out the last "character" of the set. The ever-annoying MYNOCK.
Once you get that nuisance out of the way and let 'em go chew on some cables...its time to finish this MF'er! One of the first steps is to get that barrel a proper roof around it! These are attached to your previous step, but sit nicely. Honestly out of all the roof elements, I think this one blends in the best of the bunch. Even if there is a gaping hole in the ship
Then you move on to the gunner position up top! This piece is pretty much the same as the one underneath, but its more complex/detailed and also removable, so you can throw Finn into the seat to shoot up and pesky TFs that fly by. Its crazy how well they build these to be round too. My only complaint here is those two rusty stickers. Ugh for $800, just print all the damn pieces lol
After that, its all detail stuff. Build out both dishes, obv I went with the classic round one (I cracked up at the Sensei Wu hat for the center of it):
Here is the other one, along with the two front fork pieces you can add from Ep7 as well:
Fancy nameplate for those that need reminding what ship it is exactly, along with factoids for those of us nerdy to care lol
And here she is from the top down! (just looking at this pic makes me a little nervous seeing how its hanging slightly over the edge of the table lol)
And I snapped a quick pic of it this weekend for a friend with it on my shelf as of now. Now its on to building out a setting for it to reside in rather than just sitting randomly on a wooden platform, but I am gonna have to plan it all out before starting. So that might be a while lol
Hope everyone enjoyed the ride! This has been fun to document, both seeing it completed step by step, and having to "review" it each step. I'll have to do this again with a big set, maybe I'll finally dive into a city sidewalk set like everyone keeps telling me I should lol
