I built a similarly scaled MF for the Epic Scene Contest (my late entry will be posted eventually). For that I used one of these:

I think it worked pretty well.

EDIT: I guess this would be even better:

I like it. Its tiny and cute, maybe if you do decals you could ask for a decal on the wish list.

Great job! :thumbup:

Nice diminutive Falcon! Very recognizable for such a tiny build. Good job once again.

This is way too big! - It needs to be small enough to fit in the micro-hanger of your micro-Death Star :laugh:

But seriously, really nice work! IMHO I think it could be improved if you could use a 1x1 cone as the cockpit instead of the tap. I don't know how you would do this, but I bet You could :sweet:

Thanks. I will try to change the the cockpit like you said.

Heres a picture of what it looks like compared with the old one.

Personally, I like the older one; the 1x1 with studs on 4 sides just looks out of place in the new one. I do recommend the Infiltrator 4x4 parabolic plate, and I would change the 1x2 wedge bricks next to the engines to the curved variety.

I like the older version better too. I have the Infiltrator plate I just can't find it.

Is this what you meant when you said I should change it to the curved variety.

I like the new one much better. The curved pieces on the back look better than the slopes :thumbup:

I agree with Prateek that the new one looks way better, Now you just need to find those curved pieces in light bley...

Good job :classic:

Yes. :classic:

Much smoother now. Awaiting the redo in light bley.

EDIT: Would a pair of binocs look too big as the dorsal turret?

Yes the binocular looks way to big plus it made it look like it had eyes.

I agree that the 1x1 cone didn't work, I think it stuck out too far from the hull and didn't quite match the scale - thanks for indulging me. At first glance I wasn't too sure about the curved pieces at the back either but when I imagine them in light bley I think it will look cool - I hope you left your previous BrickLink order open :laugh:
