Here are some pictures of my newest custom made model....,  the Holy Grail of STAR WARS spaceships





Looks like your links are down Michael, so I'm just updating one of them with the pic we have saved here on our server at JD.   ;)

I swear to God this is totally freaky...  Just last night (honestly) as I was scrolling through the Member List here, I was thinking that no one had heard from or seen Michael Fright in quite a while.  I was wondering what you had been up to Michael and if you had any more scale ship projects in the works.  That got me to thinking what would be the next best ship for you to take a stab at when I realized - duh, the Millenium Falcon of course!  That's about where my thought process ended on the matter...

Then this morning I wake up, check the recent posts, and see a huge Falcon custom!  Go to check who the poster was, thinking there's no way this would really be Michael, which would practically make me a psychic, and indeed it was!  Totally, freakishly bizarre.  Almost like I saw into the future or something!  Very weird...

OK, enough about me...  As expected, your Falcon is awesome Michael!  Very nice work as always.  So you've got to give us some details on the project now:  How long did it take?  Any functioning components on the ship?  And of courese, whatever happened to the Tantive IV?!   ???

Yeah, definately cool work Michael, hadn't seen/heard from you in a while so it's nice to see you're still working on the bigger projects.

Very nice, Michael... Very nice!

Questions -
Does the cockpit open? Any other parts of the ship? How much does this weigh? Is there a retractable ramp? Under-belly guns? How long did it take to do this? Where ya gonna display it?

Okay, I think that's all.  :-*

I just edited one of Michael's picture links with one that we have saved on our JD server here, so at least you can check one shot out until Michael's site is back up!  Great stuff!
