    FS: Custom painted VTC Millenium Falcon

    *****Correction, this is the OTC MF******

    I've been wanting to do this for a while. I couldn't bring myself to spend the cash for a BMF repaint, so I initially planned to get a POTF2 version and work from there. Well, the VTC came up for a good price and I picked it up, right after I had purchased a POTF2 that needed a few parts. So I stripped the POTF2 of what I needed and put them in place. Then I went to work.

    Simply put, all I did was paint. I masked and then primed the entire ship in white. Then I sprayed two coats of white to the ship. After that, I painted the different hull plates different colors. After that, I went to work on the various pipes and painted several of them. Then it was off to paint all the various access points. Following each access point, I would run thinner all over the area, and then wipe it down with a cloth. This would allow the colors to thin and run. Then I went with a thinner based black wash in which I took a brush that had been dabbed in black, then ran the brush all over a section of the hull. Then I'd quickly wipe that down in a certain direction, and then put my brush in thinner and rub the thinner everywhere, and again, use the cloth to smear it. After that I added various coolant drips and use the wipe technique for that. The last part of the hull was to get some a window screen repair kit, and cut out six discs and put them on the vents at the rear. Then I used the smear technique again and that was the end of the outer hull.

    Inside, all I did was mask everything off, and then paint with a gunmetal color. Then I used a dry silver brush to add some weather to the floor. I did this in the cargo area and the cockpit. Then I painted the main gun and the radar dish, using the same base color and then black wash. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the project. There are some things I would do differently next time, and would probably be a little more conservative with the black wash. So I'm claiming this is the darker looking MF from ESB.

    Also, I've gotten what I wanted from this, so I'd like to get it moved to an appreciative fan. I'm asking $75 OBO plus shipping. I'm motivated to sell, so if you're interested, feel free to make an offer as long as it isn't a lowball.
