Millennium Falcon-Star Wars
Han Solo's Famous Starship. Complete with interior and retractable boarding door.
About this creation
The Millennium Falcon is arguably one of the most renowned Star Wars spacecraft. I remember when I first saw it in the movies back when I was a kid, it didn't seem very "cool" at the time. Let's be honest, at first glance its not much to look at. But like most Star Wars fans, after seeing the movie, you quickly fall in love. I attempted building the Millennium Falcon before, but didn't put much effort into my first attempt and it showed. This is my second execution at building Han Solo's Ship. I have to say this is a very difficult ship to build due to its round and domed natures.

Building it/Design
Let me first apologize for some colors being wrong. Most noticeable is the white circular gun-mount piece. Unfortunately I don't a have a grey one as I'd prefer. :( I built this entirely from my arsenal of legos, so none were ordered from bricklink for its creation. This was difficult since I have VERY FEW angled plates and even fewer grey ones. I had to built my design off of what pieces I had so in the end it didn't end up being the design I would have preferred to use, which would have been a 16-gon instead of a 12-gon. But you work with what you've got. This model took a lot of planning since in many cases it maxed out some of the piece types I had. I put a retractable boarding door with working pistons on the side just like the movie model. I tried to include several SNOT areas to bring the flow of the ship together better.

Size
Length: 14"
Width (At widest point): 10 1/2"



A general front view of the ship showing the quad laser cannon, dish, and damaged area of the ship.



Front, of course.





Back shot. Would've liked to have had enough transparent small bricks to cover the back, but I didn't, so I just used normal blue bricks. Technically I should've used white, since thats the color of the thrusters in the movie, but i figured you'd all recognize blue due to Lego's set influences.



Right side. As you can see I ran out of light grey curved pieces and so for this side had to use dark grey giving it that obnoxious checkered look.



My cockpit fits two minifigs (Han and Chewie). Sorry the windshield isn't realistic to the real ship. I considered many options and in the end this was my best option without copying Lego's Ultimate Collector's windshield design.



Inside the cockpit

A view of the boarding door mechanisms and pistons. The door stays closed itself and has just enough resistance when opened to give it a slight hydraulic feel.



Luke practicing with his lightsaber while Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2 play on the game board.



Obi-Wan sitting on a custom black chair with a headrest I designed. In front of him is a computer console. It was in the movie so I put it in mine.



I positioned the gunner seat on its side since technically that's how they sat in the movie. They had to crawl up a ladder, and then faced upwards while gunning down the TIE fighters. While mine doesn't have a latter, at least the gunner is positioned correctly.



Here's the medical bed Leia sets Luke in when they rescue him from Cloud City after Vader cuts his hand off.



R2 working on fixing the hyperdrive. He's ALWAYS saving the day!



Han Standing in front of the boarding door to give you an idea of the height.

Thanks for looking. Please let me know what you think! I really appreciate comments!

Hey cool Falcon, check out my new MF sometime--I tore down my v.6 and started a new one.

Quoting Moodswim . This is awesome! I know you have limited parts, but, if you think of updating, the forks should be a little longer to be in scale with the cockpit. But the MF is a hard ship to tackle and I give you props for attempting it.
Thanks! Ya the cockpit itself is really WAY off scale with the whole ship, but i figured if Lego got away with it for 2 out of 3 of their Millenium Falcons, why couldn't I do it for my one model? :D In the future, maybe I can make a much larger model with a to scale cockpit.

Quoting Thomas Benedikt Nice mini version, this is definitely a ship that is hard to build at this scale.
Thanks. I wanted to build essentially a lego set size Millenium Falcon because I don't have near the pieces to make a to scale size one. This as I described above was done with only the pieces I had so it was even more challenging. I recently made a bricklink order and among other things ordered massive amounts of wedge plates, so that should help with future endeavors on building this ship and others. Thanks for your comments! Your building skills are legendary! I especially love your Venator and your Home One puts you at Master builder class in my opinion.

Not bad, I think the size of the ship could use some work though. Check out my V3 of the Falcon, its pretty accurate and if you wanna make another version, your free to use ideas from mine, as long as you give me credit on the page! Great job though! Thanks
