Millennium Falcon
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. :)

   This ship measures three feet long, twenty-six inches wide, eight inches tall - not counting turret or dish.
Counting by stud-width isn't very easy due to the excessive SNOT technique used.

   Here we can see my least-detailed section - in between the front mandibles. I had run out of time for the show I was premiering this at, and I've never gone back in to fill it up.



Enlarge image
   One of the parts I always knew I would be using were the 8x8 grill-patterns found in one of the Pod Racer sets. The blank spot in the middle of each is disappointing, but it's pretty close at least :)



Enlarge image
   I went with Bright Light Blue bricks on the inside here, with clear 1x2 tile/panel pieces interspersed over them (which I added more of, later). There may be better methods, but I'm happy with this.



Enlarge image
   The mandibles are exact duplicates on top and bottom.



Enlarge image
   I feel that the side of the mandibles stick out a bit much. This is one thing I'll try to be correcting in my next (and hopefully final) version.



Enlarge image
   The basic shape is the same, but the interior of this hatch has been completely re-done from the original. I tried to get more of a hexagonal shape on the inside greebling.



Enlarge image
   Sorry, it's not a real working hatch :)



Enlarge image
   For some reason I had a lot of fun making the feet. I'd also like to point out that this entire creation is resting on, essentially, seven 8-stud-long axles.

:)



Enlarge image
   The turret isn't as mobile as I'd like it to be, but with the new style of joints it works fairly well.

Incidentally, the two turret 'cockpits' (top and bottom) and the tunnel that goes between them are fully created (but hard to see :( )



Enlarge image
   The interior, as of now. Making a 'real' interior is gonna be tough with all this in the way!



Enlarge image
   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. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/355299

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.
