As we have discussed, the old Star Wars Millennnium Falcon toy for action figures is almost scale…





But, its landing gear is just too high, so I cut the front leg down about 1 ¼”, and drilled holes in the rear to hold them at the same height with toothpicks.



I also decided to re-paint the toy to make it look more realistic….



So I took all the pieces apart and taped off the windows…



I started by priming everything black.

I dry brushed two shades of gray and twice with white; then I did details with gray, and finished with a super light dry brush with white again…





You’ll wind up with something like this.







Paint the engine in Falcon-Bluish colors…



We’re starting to fool around taking pictures with backdrops. Randy, in our weekend group made us a few poster size Scenery backdrops for us…THANKS RANDY!

Mike -

I have the old/new/re-issue Ertl Falcon, and I'm going to have to see if the scale is close enough to use it. If it is, I can still get the snowspeeder, various TiE's, and the X-wing.

You're gonna KILL my retirement fund, y'know!

See ya!

The model Falcon is, IMHO, even closer to minis scale. I posted a bunch of pics awhile ago, all gone now thanks to the hack. I'll see if I can find them. I painted it up the exact same way -- black primer and progressive drybrushing. I also added some of the brown and grey "patches" the Falcon has on some panels. Looks darn good, if I do say so myself....

Here are some of those Falcon pics -- not the best ones, not the ones with the appropriate figures, but you get a sense. These are all old, too, works in progress -- the final Falcon looks a little better. Still, these give a sense of scale, and the style of paint.
