    75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017 MOD/MOC

    Mods are coming along; cosmetic changes to the upper front mandibles inspired by @bricksmarlin, and used @ClassicLook’s solution to turn the circular vents to the correct orientation. Well along the way to @ClassicLook’s engine mod as well, just waiting on a final shipment of trans light blue 2x1 plates (miscalculated my original order), and still waiting on some parts for the Efferman stand. Also need to get some led strip lights. https://imgur.com/gallery/qEb379W

    I think I've found the answer to my question, after studying the assembly instructions - the arches can just be swapped out, but otherwise the upper surfaces of the mandibles use a much higher number of tiles and other parts with fewer studs than the undersides of the mandibles. Bummer.

    New member here - just wanted to start by saying hats off to you all - amazing creativity and technical ability on display with these mods! Received the UCS MF75192 for my forty-fifth birthday last week and am really enjoying the build. It’s my first foray into Lego since I was a kid in the eighties, have always been a huge Star Wars fan, and this model is just phenomenal in every respect. I’m considering trying my hand at some of the mods on here once I’ve completed the build (currently about to commence stage 12), but to start with I want to eliminate some of that dark grey hull detailing on the upper surface of the front mandibles. I really like the look of @bricksmarlin’s exterior, but don’t have any additional parts to what’s already in the set (I know how to order additional parts through the various online resale markets). What I’d like to know is are there sufficient parts in the set already to just swap light grey elements from the underside of the mandibles for the dark grey elements on top, without needing additional parts? Thanks.
