My second version of the famous smuggler ship. Hopefully, this one will not need to be taken apart for the third.
About this creation
In this version, I took great care to get the dimensions right as well as the support. I can finally say that this is, in my opinion, a full-scale 'minifig' ship. Of course, I realize that many people have differing views on what makes minifig scale, but they can go do their own Falcon. :)
I did this on the computer before I ever started physical work. Based on a few things I'd already created - like the cockpit - I figured out the dimensions for the entire rest of the ship.
Interesting fact: The ship is 7 cockpits wide. :)
As a UK fan of Star Wars, This is a Brilliant and large Lego Model of Millennium Falcon, I just love it, how man pieces did you have to use, as I am designing a Minifigure Scale spaceship from Blake's 7 called Scorpio which is being still designed, I have included the url for my Lego Blake's 7 Scorpio.
I just recently started doing Star Wars MOCs in official minifig playset scale (basically no scale whatsoever, just what I like), and just wanted to say that your designs are some of the most inspirational pieces I can find. Thanks for the great work being shared... and this is one of my two favorite versions of the Falcon I've ever seen!
Holy greebling on a stick, Batman! That is one HUUUGE Millennium Falcon! I'm not sure if I would call it minifig scale, myself... the cockpit maybe, but I'm trying to imagine Han and Chewie doing repairs on the mandibles like in ESB and it just seems to big to me. I could be wrong though. At any rate, bigger IS usually better, so you get an awestruck five smileys.
