    Great work! Do you have the underscaled Hasbro one for comparison?

    I don't, sorry.
    But trust me when i say this one has to be at least twice the size!

    Very nice! Anything move on it like the clips that connect to the ship, or is it solid?

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    No. I have left those as unmoveable.
    The fighter has to slide in and out. But they hold it nice and secure when it's in.

    It will be getting boxed up shortly and sent to the customer in China.

    Makes sense, you'd have to modify the fighter to have a magnet system to dock with those moving parts, just wondering if you might have given it a shot.

    Looks great with the final paint. Before you send it out, think you could grab a shot with a figure for scale? I can see how big this really is, but without anything recognizable in scale to it it's hard to fully understand.

    It's on my bench at work. I will take pics of it with some GI Joe figures on it tomorrow when i go to work.

    Edit... I took pics of it with 1/20 scale figures back when it was just painted in black primer.
    These figures are closer to what i believe is the "real" scale of the starfighter, and are plastic model kits of military guys.
    Basically they are a head shorter than SW or GI Joe figures.
    But i will take pics tomorrow of actual Joes.

    Ah, got ya. I agree with you on the scale being smaller, so it makes sense to use those model guys, they're a good mechanic choice for the piece too, and without paint they pass easier as SW universe. A pic with a SW or Joe figure definitely will give the best idea, but that thing is really big!
