What did you do to my ship!?

Images were "leaked" recently of the Millennium Falcon's new dish for the upcoming EP 7.

read about it here

and the Falcon is sporting a new radar dish. Gotta love the nod to the end of Jedi, where Lando knocks the dish off while careening through the death star's guts. But how's this thing look?

so I perspective matched the leaked photos and imported my Falcon model. The model I've built is based primarily on the blueprints used in Empire to create the full-size prop seen in Echo base and on the Bespin landing pad. Looks like the production team on EP7 is doing the same thing. A fairly nice match, a few weird spots, but definitely close enough to work out the dimensions and look of the new dish.

and here are some renders....

Hmm, could I live with this?
