Got more done in the past few hours. Starting filling some screw holes and put blanking sheets over the panel and top/bottom recesses. Spent another £7 so that make around £20 all in so far.

Ok chaps, started building some panels today. I promised myself the only real expense would be the Han cast but everything else is scratch built. These are being made using scrap plastic , wood and anything else I have lying around.

Hi all,

Sorry for lack of updates. Had to redo box due to the MDF being a pain to work with. They are now ply. Good news is that han cast is here and has been positioned and filled etc. My wife said it is bloody 'ugly' but im sure she will come round :D

Pics later this week :lol:

Ok chaps,

Latest update. Mounted the han cast this week. Got the carbonite texture all done and primed. Will be letting it dry for a week or two so I can get a real good paint finish :D

So ive nearly complete this piece, and its ever so fitting it should be this week. Gotta love the old space pirate - the best in the galaxy :D
