The nacelle joints felt secure when I was moving it around, the connection between both sections seems strong as well, but I don't know if I would trust either of them to hold most or all of the weight, but with enough support around the saucer and secondary hull I would imagine they would hold up.Thanks for the pics. I guess I’ll be displaying mine flying from right to left. How secure is the screwed in joint between saucer and secondary hull? Any movement or weakness? Same question with nacelle joints. I’m planning to suspend mine from the ceiling with redundant loops of 40lb fishing line like my Millenium Falcon. Assuming the center of gravity cooperates with structurally sound hanging points.
Also - are both of you in Australia? I understand these are manufactured closer to that neck of the woods - but how does a continental US-only release get delivered outside of the US first?
Maybe the resellers get the first batch of production samples with the seams .
I believe both Phoenixblazes and I are in Australia, based on the company we bought from. I'm not sure why they were also offered here, I was surprised as well as I was sure that I was going to miss out on it when the campaign wasn't open internationally.
My own personal guess is that they needed to manufacture some amount above the number ordered through the campaign, either because of contracts or for economical reasons, and offered the extra units around for sale to businesses where they might have the rights to do so, though I've no evidence for this of course.
