So you are that Flail! I didn't know you were a member here... I think that your Y-wing is truly one of the best out there. In case you haven't noticed, I mentioned applying your Falcon mods to this set as a welcome alternative many times before learning from instructions that the construction was quite different.
Oh, and one more thing:
Ras 74, way back in said:
X-wing that you promissed a long time ago.
I'm assuming you mean the space for the mandibles. In-universe, I believe that's where the cargo is loaded on a YT-1300.

To me it looks like the 2 versions should be built together as one.
Take all the best ideas and techniques from them both.

For instance the landing gear doesnt break off and there's no need to reinforce its structure underneath to prevent it from breaking.
The playability is therefore increased.
But than again I dont play with lego...

It's not a huge change, but lots of minor ones that add up.

Since due to the infamous dark ages, I missed the previous releases, I have been looking on the aftermarket for a MF for quiet some time. Of course they were available, but prices seemed a bit steep for a 2nd handed set. (no way I was going to pay rip-off prices for a MISB). So when this one came out, for about the price the 2nd hand ones went on e.g. eBay, I got excited... finally.. Only question was: would it be better then the previous one?
Well, after reading a.o. this review I decided to go for the 7965. Of course it has its flaws, for me the most important one the shape of the mandibles. (I have the midi version too, who's overall shape is a lot better). But the major problems seem to be arrangable by some modding.
In fact, main problem for me turned out to be time and shelf/display space... I got it during last years pre christmas sales, and only now found time for building it... But, apart from the mandibles, it looks fine... better then I expected. Glad I trusted the review and bought it.

Bought the first 7965 on christmas sale and recently got a second at 33% off.
Having built one up now i slowly get used to the mandible flaw. What bugs me most is the sticker issue. The sheet was kind of rolled up with the stickers standing up from it. Despite being attached now, they roll up time and again and i often have to press them down again. Shouldn't stickers stick to the surface? Dreaded stickers...
This being said, i love the set very much. A pretty sturdy build with interesting techniques - and it's huge. Among my most beautiful sets. I am still searching after a worthy place for display of the 'old lady'.
Thank you TLG for releasing the new Imperial Star Destroyer and Mos Eisley Cantina! They are among the best you ever created!!!
New (system) sets i desire the most: Cloud City, Lambda Class Shuttle with Emperor, Nebulon B Frigate, TIE Interceptor, Rebel Trooper (Alderaan uniform) BP, Stormtrooper BP

All missing parts are in (one of the) bags 4.
He's missing f.i. the bridge shaped parts (all 4) and the wedge shaped things (16x) We're now counting and checking and already are missing even more parts....pretty weird as Lego claims to weigh every bag so how this huge difference is beyond me.
Anyway, thanks for the detailed pics, a good help !
