The dishes are done

Well...just the master copy. I finished the back of the dish yesterday. The details were much easier than the front to create. However, because the parts that fit to it are more complicated than the cone, it still required some effort for a good fit. As promised, here are some images of my new dish master mounted to the rest of the Fine Molds radar dish assembly parts.
After a brief photo shoot (see above) and moment to appreciate the completion of the dish work, I took it all apart and prepped my new dish master for molding. More info on that later. For now, I leave you with this photo of the completed dish assembly mounted to the hull.

Do you get a choice of which centre section goes in the radar dish, as the shooting miniatures used 2 different parts from the Saturn V rocket, the one replicated here was the smaller of the 3 pieces !!

Is there more to do? Was there a reason why you did not fix the mandibles?

The revised falcon radar dish is a work or art. Have you made copies that merer modelling mortals may purchase? I will be following your blog to build my fine molds falcon as you have undertaken amazing work.

This is an awesome build up. The research that you're doing really does show up in the details.

I'm very inspired to start mine..... however, it remains on "hold" for now.

Hello. Is there anyway to find your photos of your Falcon building?
Have you stored them anywhere in the NET?
Thanks. Great and inspiring build.I admired your effort before FM started to sell again the 1/72 Falcon for the 2nd time.

Hey Dana, would it be possible to update this blog and make the image links work again? I am sure there are many who would appreciate it for their Millennium Falcon builds. Thanks for posting this info!
