Love that picture of you and your son, Chop, his face says it all.

But... where is the Falcon radar dish?

Thats the one!! It's awesome. Now I've seen it in the flesh I really, really want one!!

Only thing that puzzles me about your picture Chopper is, obviously it is Christmas morning and you are opening prezzies, but is that a Falcon for your Son or Daddy's prezzie to himself??

I agree with The Baron though, the look on your Son's face is priceless! Yeeeaaaaaaaaah! :-D

Its all Miiiiinnnneeeeeee. He keeps it in his room but its Dads. He's pretty good with it. I'll start another thread about the Lad in a second.

Thats fresh out of the packet and the dish had yet to be installed, Baron. It has its own landing platform in the lads cupboard.

The best bit is the walkway, lights come on and it makes that whirrr, kachack sound as it lowers. Plenty of other buttons too. My fave is the sound from TESB when the Falcon won't start, the interior lights and engines flash on and off at the same time. I just run in before bed and press buttons, much to my son's delight.
