Title: My Bandai1/72 Perfect Grade Millennium Falcon build.
Post by: Captain Han Solo on Fri Dec, 01, 2017, 05:30:PM
YES!!!!

"THE" Millennium Falcon model I have wanted since standing in line around the block and finally seeing a film called STAR WARS! While everyone at the time loved the X Wings, I from day one loved the Falcon...THIS Falcon...An almost perfect reproduction of the 5' Filming model.

Very excited about building her up!

So I performed a little surgery on the interior cockpit of my Falcon. The pilot's seats were too far back, so I moved them forward...I also added Luke and Ben standing behind Han and Chewie...Very pleased with the effect!

A little more mods to my Bandai 1/72 Perfect Grade Cockpit. The figures have been modified to evoke some "life". Han can be seen actually flying the Ship while Ben and Luke look on...Again the pilots seats have been modified so Han and Chewie look like they are flying the Falcon. The Console has been modified to better reflect the console as seen in A New Hope as opposed to the kit's Empire configuration.

Bandai 1/72 Perfect Grade Falcon...I swaped out the kit supplied cockpit and replaced it with the internal details of the 5' Filming model's. Since this is a replica of the miniature I decided to make it a full replica...Next up it accurizing the rear engine lighting to how it looked in Star Wars(1977)

My 1/72 PG Falcon build...After carefully reviewing my reference material, I went back and corrected details here and there on the upper hull to the point now I think Ill leave it alone. Going to revisit the lower hull and replace the engine lighting next.
