  • Hi Gang,

    Lots of good stuff happening!  A new console is taking shape, lots of greeblies, and other various happenings as we prep for GMX and NerdCon – 2 shows on the same weekend!

    Work continued on the new […]

  • Hi Gang,

    A little bit of acrylic… a little of MDF… and a whole lot of awesome

    Based on both Starkiller’s and Maruska’s 3D model of the center console, Philip got these 3D files converted and CNC […]

  • Hi Gang,

    Lots of forward movement over the last few weeks!  ENJOY!

    Now that most of the pin stripes are in place and the button panels are set I could FINALLY begin putting everything back together to prep […]

  • Hi Gang,

    A flurry of activity… Enjoy!

    As most of you know all the darker panels are getting a MASSIVE makeover,  We’ve stripped all the greeblies, pinstripes and glass tiles to receive the new black paint, pin stripes, etc…  After some sanding, filling, sanding, filling, painting, sanding, drilling ALL the holes for the new 1″ blue,…[Read more]

  • Hi Gang,

    Here is another barrage of updates for you to enjoy!

    This panel underwent some MAJOR changes for ESB.  I played with different configurations and finally nailed it down!

    I then laser the last […]

  • Hi Gang,

    New images of the Millennium Falcon Cockpit from EP VII just hit the net!  ENJOY!  I know I did…

  • Hi Gang,

    Well… the new PC is up and running… Without further boring you… ENJOY!

    WHEW!!!  I apologize for the delay, gang.  So much more to follow in the upcoming months!  Tell your friends and family – things are about to get cranking!  : )

  • Hi Gang,

    My apologies for the lack of updates.  Progress continues (lots of pin striping, painting, greeblies, etc) but my computer crashed last week and I am only now getting all the images uploaded!  I’ve […]

  • Hi Gang,

    Pin striping continues and I managed to pick up an identified greeblie from the ESB cockpit!

    This Voltage Regulator is the exact same model used on the original ESB cockpit.  There were two of them – one sitting atop the other.  If I can’t find another I’ll take a mold of the original.  : )  Pretty cool!

  • Hi Gang,

    A few more new pics this morning.  I’ve been having issues trying to post so I’m getting as many images posted as I can!  : )  Enjoy!

    I dyed a few rubber picture frame “bump-ons”.  These will be […]

  • Hi Gang,

    Work continues at a steady pace!  The 3600 LEDs arrived and I’m working like mad to get these LED holders fab’d and ready for the lighting guys to do their magic!

    Lots of other greeblies being fab’d as well!

  • Hi Gang,

    I may have found a new and cheaper way to create the panel lights.  Although plastic, these will be easier to mount to the base and they can still be illuminated from the back – still working the idea  […]

  • Hi Gang,

     

    Work continues on the LED holders and other misc projects.  Lots of pics…  Enjoy!

    New Greeblies are being created

    Lots more to come in the next few days!  Stay Tuned!

  • Hi Gang,

    Work continues on the panels and I’ve been working on new button panels.  The laser cutter makes life SO EASY!

    We decided to add 200+ LEDs to several of the lower panels.  This prompted me to create […]

  • Hi Gang,

    Well… the decision was made to take all the darker panels, removed everything, sand smooth and fill and then paint black…  AWAY WE GO!

  • Hi Gang,

    I’ve spent the last few days at the house creating 2D files of the new console and new lower cockpit panels that will be CNC’d.  It’s a difficult process but it’s slowly coming along.  In between I’ve been removing all the 1″ glass tiles and other greeblies from the existing panels.  It’s heart breaking but necessary…

    Lots…[Read more]

  • Hi Gang,

    Got a late start to the panels this weekend.  Life just seems to get in the way…  I’ve finished two panel in preparation for adding all the LEDs and the 1″ acrylic tiles.

    Stay Tuned!  More […]

  • Hi Gang,

    Similar to the center console, it was decided to move in a slightly different direction and finish what we’ve started before starting a whole new cockpit.  The existing cockpit will have all the glass tiles (1″ sq buttons) removed and replaced with 1″ acrylic tiles that will be backlit.  This should make a HUGE difference.

    I forgot…[Read more]

  • Hi Gang,

    Scott emailed a few images from Phoenix Festival that he was able to take…  This is the last of the PF images… I have a busy “non-falcon” related weekend but I plan on getting started on a few things this evening.

    Stay Tuned!

  • Hi Gang,

    A few more images from Phoenix Festival…  We have a few more coming in.  Enjoy

    These pics were taken by our photographer, Philip.

    There are LOTS more updates coming very soon.  We had […]
