Ground Zero of an ambitious project
Hello from a newbie. I have some experience in wood working but not in the area I am posting about. In short the end goal is this: I want to build a scale model of the Millennium Falcon out of an exotic wood and I want to build in such a way as to mimic the way a real life one would be built in in regards to it’s assembly. Building each piece and then assembling it. I have some plans to work from.
My question here is what would be a great starting point for reference books and must have tools along with any wood suggestions (I was thinking about Zebra Wood but I have read that it may not be the best for planing)? I anticipate this taking several years to complete so I can gather tools as I go along. Any advice would be much appreciated.
