Millennium Falcon

Hi,

It has been quiet on this blog for quite some time. However that didn’t mean not much was going on. In fact a whole array of exciting models are going to appear in the coming weeks. They all happened to be ready around the same time.

I will kick off with my LEGO Technic version of the Millennium Falcon:

Since it is a LEGO Technic model it has a few working features. First of all the top gun turret is fully articulated. By turning the controls you can rotate the gun 360 degrees in the horizontal plane, but independently it can also rotate from horizontal to vertical. This gives a full hemisphere coverage above the ship.

The landing ramp is also remotely operated. By turning the control on top of the corridor to the cockpit the ramp lowers and closes.

The radar dish can be adjusted as well, but has no special controls.

This model was made as a commission without an exclusivity clause. I therefore made instructions for a slightly adjusted version (with fewer rare parts, but with the same functionality). Instructions can be bought in my webshop.

Finally here you can find a video of the model.

The Millennium Falcon is a trademark of Disney. They do not endorse, sponsor or authorize the instructions, this replica nor this website.
