Ralph McQuarrie´s Star War Millennium Falcon Concept design Update

Millennium Falcon Concept

Had minor PC trouble the a few days ago and my modelling time was greatly reduce, and I had to restart this model from scratch.

I have used his other early falcon images to help me add features to this design, the most notable is the rear landing gear

I have scale this access corridor from the main hull to the cockpit to around 8 & half feet tall. so Chewbacca, should have some head room.

Here is a 6ft crewman in the image to help with the scale.

I think this is working a little better now.

    That’s cool so far, bro. Even though it’s early in the build, it’s interesting to note the differences between his concept and the final movie model(s).

    I’m thinking of making (modifying) a styrene kit of this concept design, but theres not a lot of reference material, were you going to improvise to fill in the gaps?

      I was John, but never had the chance to work them out fully, I had note made but I have yet to locate them.


Comments are very welcome, thanks for viewing and I hope to see you return
