SD Studios – Steve Dymszo’s Studio Scale DeAgostini Millennium Falcon

So this is the DeAgostini kit with about 150 replacement parts. I used parts from Shapeways and original model kit parts to replace some of the kit. I also added about 30 missing parts that we didn’t catch on the MR version, because they had fallen off before we got to them. I also removed all of the molded screws and used real screws across the surface of the model. The paint job took about 120 hours and there’s probably about 250 hours in the build. I also added about 50 ultra-bright LEDs to the engine and it is blinding! The cockpit cone is a Shapeways replacement, because the kit cone was really bad. I worked with the factory to try to fix it but they just messed it up more, so I gave up. All of the ILM signatures are on the model and I copied each person’s writing style to make sure they were accurate. Every mark is exactly where it’s supposed to be. There are no incorrect placements. I plot out the position of each blast mark with a pencil first to make sure it’s correct before I paint it in…so every blast mark and streak is exactly where it’s supposed to be. I also filled in and re-sculpted all of the incorrect kit blast marks and added all the missing ones. I think this is the most accurate build/paint that anybody has done.
Thank you,
Steve Dymszo
