Scale Model Millennium Falcon Build

Recommended Posts

I have been working on building the official model of the iconic Millennium Falcon, a 1:1 replica of the original “Empire Strikes Back” movie prop, for several months and have made some progress...As of late I haven’t gotten much done and I was going to see if this post will keep me honest and make this through completion.

The model is a complete 1:1 scale replica of the Millennium Falcon from The “Empire Strikes Back” produced by DeAgostini models. It is a monthly subscription program, which now you can purchase the complete set at one time.

This build will be a whopping size!

Length: 808mm

Width: 596mm

Height: 192mm

Weight: Approx. 24 pounds

Along with this build there are aftermarket detail parts that you can buy from the 3D printing source Shapeways, and also photoetched metal parts from Paragraphix. 

Thus far I have completed the cockpit section and have a good majority of the main hold built out.

I have some new 3D printed parts for the main hold coming in the end of the month to build out one of the maintenance pits that I cut completely out of the floor base. 

Just wanted to have a venue keep me motivated and keeping on track with the build. 

I will provide periodic updates with progress. Thank you and hope you find this interesting to follow along!

Received several of the 3D printed parts from Shapeways...Airbrushed the base color for the crew main hold, before applying the lighter overspray color to add color depth. Also, completed the maintenance pit today...

Crew main hold port wall from Shapeways is currently on order, so this should be the last part before completion of the crew main hold.
