My efforts to upgrade/modify the 10179 UCS Falcon to reflect the latest version of Han's trusty ship.
About this creation
Disclaimer: the 10179 UCS Falcon is not my design. I just designed a brand new deflector dish and exhaust ports. That's what this page is for. I am NOT taking credit for Lego's amazing design. I just felt there was some room for improvement.




This was a simple MOC that became more complicated as I worked on it. I love my 10179 UCS Falcon but I wanted to update her to reflect the version we see in The Force Awakens.




The deflector dish took me a solid day from start to finish to come up with a design I was happy with. I ended up lowering the base on the ship itself by one plate and then coming up with a new pivot and joint design.




This is my favorite Lego set of all time. How about you guys? What's your favorite set?






You may also have noticed that I changed the 6 exhaust ports from Lego's original design. I removed the black radar dish pieces and came up with my own design using dark bluish gray tiles inserted between studs. I think the effect looks more like the original ship. A keen eye may also notice several other minor changes I made to the Falcon in order to make her more accurate.






I hope these changes can help others who may also have this set or anyone in general looking to make the Falcon look more like it did in the films. Have a great day and May the Force be with you!

Quoting Jack Sparrow Great job on the mods! I almost bought this set when it came out, but I'm a notorious cheapskate. Now that I have a kid, that's out of the question. You did some fine upgrades! Han would be proud! :-)
Thanks again, Captain! If you can find the instructions online for it, it's a cool build. Beside the round radar dish that the original set comes with, the parts used are not obscure or special. Pretty standard selection of parts, just great instructions!
