Millennium Falcon - FINAL . ITS DONE ITS DONE ITS DONE ITS DONE ITS DONE! . After SIX MONTHS I have finally finished it! My Millennium Falcon has tons of interior detail and exterior greeblies. It began life as a stock LEGO Millennium Falcon, but COMPLETELY redone. It includes everything from the freight rooms to the cockpit controls. It is actual minifig scale, like LEGO's UCS Millennium Falcon. And without further delay, here it is.
Here's a back view of it. Making the back hull was one of the hardest parts of the ship.
A front shot.
The engine is made of solid blue pieces because I didn't have any trans-blue.
The overall profile is a little off, but it's good enough.
The greeblies on the side also took me a while to make.
Here's some of the many greebles on the Falcon.
Here's a partial view of the back half of the ship.
I based the exhaust circles off of LEGO's UCS Falcon.
Unlike the pitiful little tails on the original Falcon, these are full-sized.
Here's more greeblies.
An overall picture of the back half of the hull.
Here's the greeblies on the middle section of the body.
I'm not necessarily satisfied with the docking rings.
But it is at least better than LEGO's.
Here's the other greeblies on the middle part of the hull.
The turret was one of the best features of my Millennium Falcon. It can rotate, and angle up. I'll show you the interior of the turret tube later.
The radar dish was also one of the awesome features on my Falcon.
The back of the dish wasn't to my high standard ;), but it did the trick.
The pipelines add a very nice effect to the hull to give it a messy appearance.
Here's another pipeline.
The greebles in the maintenance pits took a long time to make.
Yet another pipe thingy.
The right mandible's greebles.
And the cockpit. I scrapped that junky cockpit from the original Falcon and made a complete overhaul. The only thing left is the window.
The lights on the front look really cool.
Nothing different here.
I was a bit rushed on the left mandible's greebles, so this doesn't have the quality of the other one.
I based this generator thing off of LEGO's UCS Millennium Falcon.
Now on to the interior.
The holo-table was from the original Falcon.
Here's an engineering station.
Here's all the little compartments in the Falcon. By coincidence I had the exact same shade of teal for one of the drawers.
The big heavy-duty blaster, as shown in the Incredible Cross Sections.
The little engineering closet shown in Episode IV
The little openings for the cargo loading room aren't big enough for a minifig to walk through (due the the appearance of the outside hull). Is this accurate or not?
Yes, there is an ACTUAL CORRIDOR going to the cockpit.
Due to my extensive modifications, the cockpit can hold four minifigs.
The VERY DETAILED controls.
Here's a random pic of the covering for the corridor to the cockpit.
And now on to the back part of the interior. Here's on the various corridors.
That corridor leads past the opening to the turret and the corridor to the boarding ramp.
Here's a (very dark) picture of one of the other corridors.
Here's one of my favorite rooms: the bedroom.
There are little compartments for weapons, clothes, etc. As shown in the ICS.
Here's Han Solo laying in one of the beds.
A closeup of the freight elevator (with controls)
Here's a view of one of many cargo holds in the Millennium Falcon. It just holds your typical smuggled cargo: warheads, heavy-duty blasters, and priceless treasure.
The hyperdrive may be the most imprortant part of the Falcon, but I did a pretty pathetic job on it. Oh well...
Here's a picture viewing the corridor leading to one of the docking rings.
And now here's a pic of the turret chairs.
And here's the bottom turret controls. It's that orange chair way down there.
And last but not least, here is our faithful old crew.
