UCS Millenium Falcon with Interior . A complete redesign of the inside of the LEGO UCS Millenium Falcon to add interior spaces throughout the ship . Millenium Falcon Rebuild I never expected to own the UCS Millenium Falcon. All I have to say is that I have an awesome wife, and that I need to get really creative for next year's anniversary gift... It took me about a week of sorting and building to get it put together, and it looked awesome. But then I knew that I wanted to add an interior. For those of you who have seen the inside of the UCS Millenium Falcon, you know this isn't a trivial task. Technic beams run through the entire thing giving it incredible structural stability. It was a major task to undo that while keeping the frame strong enough to be stable and support the weight of the forward mandibles. Soon I'll upload some "in progress" pictures. Basically I kept the outside plates and framing, and redid the entire middle section from scratch. It was a lot of fun! View of the aft cargo hold near the loading ramp and engine room. I tried to fill the remaining voids in the side of the craft with greebling. Let's call those the shield generators. This is probably (aside from the cockpit) the room with the most source material. I know the bley doesn't mix well with the greys... but hey, it's the Millenium Falcon. I figure Han would use whatever he had to fix up his ship. The engine room with hyperdrive generator at the top of the picture. And it does *not* have a sticker labeling it "hyperdrive"... ugh. This is where I started with the redesign - though it was the easiest to do in terms of reconstruction, it was also a lot more involved than I thought it would be. The good news is that there turned out to be a lot of space in the cockpit once most of the structure was removed. Another angle of the forward hold / crew compartment, this time showing the access panel for repairs. Because of the way the port and starboard corridors are shaped (with the top and bottom angle plates, I had to build the floor of the Falcon two bricks up from the bottom of the ship. This created lots of problems with "head room" toward the edges, but it did let me create this little pit for Han and Chewie to work on... The crew quarters for the Millenium Falcon. Not much detail visible from this angle, but I filled some of the angle spaces with greebling - I mean, essential ship systems. This is kind of an overall view of the interior. My main reference picture was a schematic from the Millenium Falcon Wiki entry. One of the constraints from the location of the access tunnel to the gun turrets is that the back half of the ship had more room than the front should have had. Compromises were made, but I'm pleased that it follows the general idea. Here you can see that the top plates fit back on pretty much as they should. It is probably just a smidge taller than it should be, in order to accommodate the interior walls. This is the entry to the gun turret shaft. At first, I wanted to seal the turret shaft into the center of the ship, but it's easier to put minifigs into the seats by taking the whole thing out. As I finished and was moving the ship onto a black sheet for photographing, this greeble fell off. I didn't feel like going through the manual to figure out where it should go. I'm just *that* lazy. Q & A Did you base yours off a bit of Pepa Quinns? Pepa's version is really nice. I actually hadn't seen his version until after I was almost done. I especially like his doorways - a lot better than mine. Those arches definitely are the way to go. you got a great wife I really can't argue that :) Can the top be put back on for display purposes? Yep. (and I'll have a picture or two up soon that will illustrate it) The whole thing pretty much fits back together just as the original, with a few modifications: some of the hull structure that was anchored to the inside of the falcon and exposed through 'holes' in the upper hull (you know what I mean if you've seen the UCS Falcon) was attached to the external plates instead. For the radar dish, that still connects to the inside of the ship.
