...still can't see what the fuss is about if I'm honest

Perhaps because the original 3 were pure escapism, just a bunch of action, a ripping yarn, and easily understood heroes and heroines. That's precisely what Lucas wanted. Then it tried to take itself seriously, and whether it succeeded or not is a matter of personal preference. I like the whole lot, but that's probably because I view almost anything like that as just entertainment, without reading more into it. If you want to view anything through an artistic eye, go ahead, but not me. Probably why I only see about one film a year.  ;D

I think you hit the nail on the head there Dave, all the latest movies all seem to take the originals entertainment factor way to seriously in the remakes or sequels, I used to like the light humour and everything they did back then.  I don't watch any of the remakes or sequels these days

Concur. I've gone off the whole thing, except for a few of the ships.

Ratty, what's the Blue Thing in behind the RNZAF Harvard?

Minor but satisfying modification to the modeling bench; 4 hooks for holding things that can clutter a drawer or desktop.

...and easily get lost under the clutter... I know this now...

Good idea there.
