Marshall said on his Flickr page –

The millennium falcon is still the coolest spaceship in the galaxy! This is why I have always wanted to build my own version! Inspired by Mikes, WIP-images, I was encouraged to start my own project.

It took me a whole year to accomplish this build (including planning and collecting bricks).

My main goal was to present the model in a flying position, which was a huge task. Due to its internal framework it was not possible to include an interior, but I was able to fully lighten the model. And there was still enough space left to include a detailed cockpit (with 4 seats), gunner’s platform and a lowering ramp. Credits to EB member ScottishDave for his original design of the radar dish.

Measuring: 82 cm x 54 cm x 18 cm
