‘Star Wars’ Fans Building 1:1 Replica Millennium Falcon

- 10-23-12Cool Stuff, WTF? Posted by Mark Poynter

We’ve seen LEGO models, computer cases, XBOX controllers and jello molds of the much beloved and highly modified YT-1300 Light Freighter, but now a group of fans are really taking it to the limit in an attempt to reproduce the Millennium Falcon in a 1:1 scale.

The Full Scale Falcon Project (FullScaleFalcon.Com) is the brainchild of Chris Lee, a life time Star Wars fan, and his friends and family.

Project Overview:

This is a quest to build the ultimate Star Wars prop: a 1:1 scale ESB/ANH hybrid Millennium Falcon with complete, correctly scaled interior. Yes, I have completely lost my mind, just like most of my friends and family say. Except for my close Star Wars fan friends, who say “cool, can I help?”.

There’s already a lot of completed and in progress work being done on the project. You may have seen pictures of the replica cockpit console floating around the internet. Below is a gallery of some of the in progress pictures of the project.

There are lots more pictures at the project’s website and information on how to contribute through buying a t-shirt, making a donation, or actually working on the project. I imagine if the project is finished that tours of the Falcon would be made available.

What do you think? Of course the thing won’t fly, but having lights and sound effects would be a great experience.
