since i have been away from here for a long time i have gotten back into some other hobbies, like my star wars collecting and painting and such. my buddy chris and i recently got ahold of a beat up hasbro millennium falcon static toy that was in a bit of a mess, and we decided to upgrade the build of it and repaint and weather it by hand to a studio standard. being a former prop person for film and television, it was fun to do something like this that wasnt for work. we had so much fun doing this that i thought i would share. it is about one day from being completed and is so far looking pretty good.
once it is finished, it will be put up for sale for the serious collector to fund a bigger project.
if you are a star wars fan, have a look.
rock on folks.

Here is the link to the entire build album.

that's cool. I always was intrigued by the prop builder profession.

9 weeks and 100 hours to convert this useless toy to a studio standard. one more session of about 3 hours and it is done.
