You Magnificent Bastard: Madman Building Full-Scale Millennium Falcon Replica (Complete With Interior!)

October 24, 2012


Chis Lee is man. Actually, a crazy person. A crazy person with a dream -- to build a full-size Millennium Falcon replica over the next 5-7 years. He intends to build the model complete with correctly scaled interior, then put it on display outside where it should be visible on Google maps and possibly score him some hot space alien ladies. I'm joking, I think he's married. For how much longer remains to be seen.

Using the DK Ultimate Collection blueprints as our guide, we have calculated the final outer dimensions of the structure. The DK blueprints use the same overall length as the Robert Brown estimate. From there, we arrive at:

Length: 114 feet
Beam (docking ring to docking ring): 81.485 feet
Height to top of body (not counting quad-laser turret): 24.878 feet
Height to top of dish: 30.889 feet
Clearance: ground to landing gear bay level: 7.779 feet
Clearance: ground to outside bottom of cockpit tube: 13.081 feet

So far Chris has got the cockpit console near finished and an exterior quad-gun completed, and...that's about it. I'm not sure if he's still planning on finishing in the next five to seven years, but I certainly hope so because I have every intention of commandeering that vessel and making it my own private clubhouse. *knock on landing bay door* WHAT'S THE PASSWORD? "Han Solo sensuous lips." *opening door* Hurry up and get in here.

Hit the jump for a bunch of renderings of what the finished thing should look like, as well as the pieces Chris has completed so far. Make sure to check out the official site for ongoing progress.









Thanks to Jayce, volo, Finkelstein and Wolpers, who agree a coating of fireproofing probably wouldn't hurt anything.

    Not metal? What? Well, either way, I can make it perform as a true antigravity and hyperspeed capable craft. google mikefromspace

  • How about a full scale TARDIS --- including interior :)

    Credit for the console goes to Replica Prop Forum user Sofaking01, who is the lead builder working with Chris Lee on the project. this is a link to the original progress thread:

  • Exactly. These guys are working hard on the console, and it's looking great!

  • raditzzzz

    pfft, thats nothing compared to the full scale enterprise im building...

  • ...and then George Lucas swoops in and sues him for copyright infringement and multiple trademark violations.

  • Danathar

    Actually, it would be DISNEY that would swoop in now....

  • Our contacts at Lucasfilm are fully aware of our fan project.
