ESB Panel Extensions!

Hi Gang – UPDATES!

I was going to keep this a secret until the GMX show but quickly realized it would have been impossible especially taking build pics of the canopy…  So… Having chatted with Starkiller and the getting the correct measurements… I’m building the 15″ ESB extension panels.  This will allow for more room in the “Pit” but also get that ESB look we all LOVE!  I also plan to get to the back wall.

I was thinking about building a display stand for flyers, binders, etc…  I came up with this quick sketch…  But a member gave me another idea… I’m going to try sketching a new stand with the MF landing gear as influence…  That should be fun!

New 3D render cutaway image

Here’s the latest 3D render of our full-size model with a cutaway showing how the interior will fit inside the exterior.

This is the true full-scale 114′ foot long version that we are building, not the movie set replica size. It uses the DK Blueprints for the floorplan with 90% of the kinks worked out for the interior.

More to come soon, including another video walkthrough. Stay tuned!
