...At least I got something done over the long weekend (despite another bout of very annoying crud). I even found a place for it on top of the microwave. I suspect that the cat may not actually destroy it this time -- at least not immediately (although there's no way that thing will survive a move -- it's fairly fragile).

Anyway, that's a reasonably large microwave, for scale -- anybody who's been to my apartment should have a good idea of how big this thing is:

The thing's a meter long, remember. 3104 pieces (with about another dozen spare unused pieces). Took maybe twelve hours to finish in all, maybe a little less.
In the mood: sicksick

That thing's monster huge! It's as long as the wall map!

Just twelve hours? I'm impressed. It took me about 40 hours to finish mine. Hunting for the specific piece was a pain in the arse.

It is currently sitting on my computer desk, but that's not a long term solution. I think I'm going to have to build a shelf for it. then I get to build the Rebel Blockade Runner. I'll have to find a spot for it, too.

Well, the key is staying organized -- the pieces come semi-organized, you have to keep them that way, otherwise it would take forever.

Maybe they've improved the organization on the packing in the past couple of years. We kept the pieces in the bags that they came in and it was a royal pain to find the correct piece. My wife looked for the pieces while I assembled them

It's possible.

When I got the box, all the large pieces were in bags of just that piece, and all the small pieces of the same type were in the same bags, albeit mixed with other small pieces (except maybe the really common small pieces, a few of those might have had their own bags).

The only pieces that were particularly hard to find were the smaller "rare" pieces -- i.e., the ones that there were only a few of, and didn't stand out (unlike the pieces that made up the shield generators, say -- those are impossible to miss).
