Millennium Falcon
« on: January 31, 2014, 08:51:18 pm »
I just finished the body of the Falcon... for the second time. Built it once, inside and out completed it, then accidentally saved over it somehow with a blank slate. Oh well. A few hours later and here it is again. Now just need to finish the interior. I thought it came out okay

Pretty good looking, although you could make the forward "wing" like protrusions more stubby like the movie model.
I don't want to go "Oh! there's shots going my way! No big deal I'm the U.S.S Bloody Massive, It won't even leave a scratch." *boom* "SHIT! BIG DEAL! HUGE DEAL!"

Made some changes to the model. Shortened the wing thingies to be more snubbed. Made some changes to a couple other things, nothing too major.

Neat!

I made a 1:1 model of the Millennium Falcon a couple years ago. Unfortunately that scale doesn't allow it to look near as good and detailed as yours.

Post up some pictures of the interior!

Pics and .brd are here if you want to take a look.

Thanks for the comments guys. I actually already saw your falcon yesterday. It looks great, especially considering it's 1:1. The original falcon I built had an interior, but I accidentally saved over it and had to start new. I'll probably do it today or tomorrow and will post pics.

Is this to Scale? As in 1:1? Can't tell.

Either way good job.

P.S.

Is it the stock passenger or freight YT-1300 model interior wise?

Not sure about the interior. I'm basing it off of this:

http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/23/4a/08/234a0852389a8c4d36820c87da11d15c.jpg

Do you have other schematics for the interior?

I don't think it's 1:1, maybe 1.25 or 1.5:1. It feels 1:1 on the inside for sure.

I primarily used these four references.

I preferred the second layout, and stuck most closely to it. It's the most logical layout of the bunch, though it still has some wasted space. Unfortunately 1-meter-thick walls (and no diagonal placement on a round ship) make it impossible to fit everything in, so I modified it, pared it down to the essentials and also added the two things that are ignored on most of these cross sections - a galley and a head. (Or a kitchenette and a toilet for the nautically disinclined) Overall dimensions for this hull (minus guns, radar, floodlights, etc) is 36m x 27m x 7m which seems to be about the accepted canonical size. (debates range between 34 and 37 meters length)
