Apparently the Revell SnapTite Max Falcon is 1/72 (or close enough to it). The workings are there but it definitely needs improvements.

Cheers!
Don.

Hmm. Just had a thought about a custom first order Tie variant. Curious, how long will this contest last?

I had the same thought... I picked up the big Revell TFA TIE and want to do a classic scheme on it.

I'd say we could go from now until March 15 ish.

oh yeah, it's on
If you have a tool and aren't aware of what it can do, its dangerous. A jedi can do amazing things with a lightsaber. A roomful of chimps with lightsabers... would get messy.

Just looking for a bit o' clarification here - we don't have to be screen accurate, but "TFA inspired"? I'm feeling dense right now, so just looking for some examples. Hah.

(Partially this is due to the fact that I have no TFA kits "in house" currently, and I'm trying to figure out what I can do with what I've got)
Need to build 30 models per year until I'm 90 to clean out the stash. Time to get cracking!
