Finished!

 

As you can see, sealing with acrylic makes a huge difference in color tones:

 

Before:  591073_sm-YT-1300%20Conversion%201.jpg

 

After:  591381_sm-Millenium%20Falcon%2C%20X-Wing

 

591382_sm-Millenium%20Falcon%2C%20X-Wing

 

591383_sm-Millenium%20Falcon%2C%20X-Wing

 

Added some engine glow:

  591386_sm-Millenium%20Falcon%2C%20X-Wing

 

Side by side w/ stock YT-1300:

591388_sm-Millenium%20Falcon%2C%20X-Wing

 

591387_sm-Millenium%20Falcon%2C%20X-Wing

 

The conversion ended up being only 1/8" or so longer than the stock model, mostly due to the sensor dish.
