This falcon was done to the same proportions as my large-scale ship.
About this creation
I built this small ship in time for a show I did in Wheaton, IL, Dec. '05. Taking a cue from my Macro Mini Sandcrawler, I had decided to build smaller versions of all my large ship/vehicle creations. This took me a few days to complete. The first version, the one I displayed at the show, can be seen here.
An oddity: The plates on the underside here are held in place by hinges to fill in the gap from the large panel. In order to fix stuff in the inside, I can easily swing this open. At the show, someone remarked that it was like an access ramp... and darn it, they're right!
I was just looking through the "5 years ago" moc and saw this was like OMG this looks just like set #7778 but then thought wait you built this years before lego did... So what happened? Did lego steal this??
