Millennium Falcon

Video available: youtu.be/luHcHAESt8M

 

The millennium falcon is still the coolest spaceship in the galaxy! This is why I have always wanted to build my own version! Inspired by Mikes, WIP-images, I was encouraged to start my own project.

 

It took me a whole year to accomplish this build (including planning and collecting bricks). Net building time 240 hours.

My main goal was to present the model in a flying position, which was a huge task. Due to its internal framework it was not possible to include an interior, but I was able to fully lighten the model. And there was still enough space left to include a detailed cockpit (with 4 seats), gunner’s platform and a lowering ramp. Credits to EB member ScottishDave for his original design of the radar dish.

 

Measuring: 82 cm x 54 cm x 18 cm

Weight: approx. 9.2 kg

Parts count: approx. 7500 pieces

 

I am proud how this creation came together – I hope you like it as well.

 

Thanks MB
