Studio Scale Slave I

    Studio Scale Slave I

    Hello. I'm not sure this is the right section to post this. I'm making a studio scale Slave I, using the same kit parts as the original filming model. When the master if finished I'll be making molds then casting the parts in fiberglass and resin to make a lighted model.

    Here's where I am so far.

    Thanks

    CONGRATULATIONS !!!!!!

    Have a couple questions..

    1-How do you know what original kits did they use?

    2.- Once you finish it. Will you sell the kits?


    Thanks

    Regards and Merry Christmas

    Richard! You're here. Of course, I've also been following this over on RPF and the RI. Can't wait to see more!
    This would display so well next to my Falcon.

    Re: Studio Scale Slave I

    I love the size of the model! I normally don't collect studio scale models, but this has definitely caught my eye. I hope you'll also figure out a way where this can somehow be propped up and displayed without putting any structural strain on the model.

    Re: Studio Scale Slave I

    I've never invested in a scaled Star Wars model before, nor do I typically track scaled models. However, this would be a very cool first for me. If you have a way of displaying it to where it can anchor itself very securely onto a very simple and elegant display system which in turn can sit on a pedestal or table top (and can withstand a few shakes without tipping over and go crashing to the ground) I'd be very interested, depending on price of course (and room in the apartment), but very interested nonetheless.

    This project just has so many levels of "cool" to it I can't begin to count. Thanks for doing this. It's projects like this that make us believe and dream. 8)

    I used the Entex pieces.

    I got the skirt joined together. Here's my wife holding it.

    Man! That's bigger than I thought.
    Any rough estimate on the overall length of the ship?
