Ralph McQuarrie Star War Millennium Falcon
Apart from building Ralph McQuarrie Galactica concept design I also having a go at building the Falcon.
Based on this image.

This is for me a celebration of Mr McQuarrie´s work and contribution and vision for Star Wars.
This is close to the design we all love, but I do have a few problems with it, the cockpit area,,,, I think its to small and how do they access it, I looked at other images Mr McQuarrie created for George Lucas and Star Wars and found a few possible solutions.
This is my progress so far with the falcon, you can see I have added a narrow octagon shape going from the cockpit to the main hull.
This I built in a few hours and I have scaled it to around 112 ft long or 34 + meters, I sourced that information from starwars.wikia.com if you like to check it any other data about the ship`or riddles as one fan called it years ago.
Not sure how far I will go or how long this will take with my other projects queuing up demanding to be done.
The thing I like about this design is that its not going to be too heavy detail wise, or for 3d modellers it will be low poly and that means faster renders or animations.
