Hello,
 
first the frames of the cockpit windows were painted, then the window parts were glued over the cockpit.

A first layer of primer over the shapeways parts followed next so that the colors will adhere better on these parts...

Next I have added a lot of black pre-shading on the complete falcon which will remain visible under the final painting ...

The decals followed next... yellow, dark grey and red colored decals on the upper and lowered side of the hull. I do not know why, but the red decals were horor. They crumbled at every corner, no matter how much of softener was used ....

Let me give you the most honorable Star Wars compliment:

 

"What a piece of JUNK!"

 

(Of course....it's not junk at all.  Quite a beautiful rendition.  Just trying to keep in the spirit of SW and all)

For some reason, red gives some decal printers a lot of problems - most of the time if I have a decal crack or shatter, its a red one.  Nonetheless, Looking Great!!

Hello,
 
some more updates of the weathering of the Falcon. First I have painted the exhausts with thinned black color with the airbrush in several thin layers. Black color was also used for other areas on the hull as well as on the damaged areas.
 
With brown colors I have varied the color of the exhaust streaks, Tamiya Smoke was used for some further variations of the colors on the hull.
 
A washing with black oil colors was used next on the complete hull, specially on the joints between the several plates on the hull. 
 
Clear coat matt came next on everything, then some black, brown, rusty and silver pigments.
 
The two cannones were built and painted. I have used 3D printed cannons instead of the kit parts as these were much better deteailed. The frames of the windows were hand painted and weathered.

Hello,
 
the  Falcon reached his final place. The base is made of a wooden plate with a wooden frame under it. Sanded and sprayed in glossy black.
 
The switches for the lights are installed on the right side of the frame, all the wiring is inside the base, only the two connectors for the batteries are outside of the base.
 
All cables between Falcon and base are going through the aluminium tube.
 
Next following some drybrushing and last details ...
