Lego 10143 updated to remove the majority of the unique or rare parts, replacing them with more readily available alternatives. The aim has been to preserve as much of the original model and its construction techniques as possible.

This fully armed and operational battle station was quite straightforward to update. The main problems were with common parts in unusual colours: 32278 pearl dark grey 1x15 beams,, 3937 Tan hinge 1x2 base and 30364 Tan 1x2 brick with locking finger. A few other minor colour swaps have also been done. Only 41855 brick 2x2x2/3 with two studs was long out of production and had to be replaced with a more modern. alternative - it provided detailing on the display stand.

The only real challenge was the assembly of the model in computer - there are several very complex angles, and some parts of the super laser dish are "floating", not connected to anything but trapped in place. It was very satisfying to see the spherical shell finally close up.

Now where is that pesky rebel fleet?
