I would like to present you my version of the LEGO® Star Wars Millenium Falcon (7965). So no MOC, but a MOD as my first creation on MOCpages. I hope you enjoy it!
Thanks to all the "falcon modders" out there!
What I did in detail:
1) Front Wings
I don't like the the front wings in the 7965 set, as they are too narrow and too "thin" compared to the original Falcon. So I rebuilt them completely and considered also the holes.
The cockpit has also been rebuilt with a new interior. It was important for me that there is a direct access to the cockpit from the inner areas of the Falcon. In the 7965 set the location of the cockpit is wrong, so I moved it a bit backwards. That was the most difficult part of this MOD because I of the stability of the model.
The under-floor seems kind of "raw" to me in the 7965 model, as you can see the Technic beams without any cover. I added an additional floor and a lot of inverted slopes. Also the ramp is more detailed now.
4) Landing Gear
I wanted to add the original landing gear like the UCS version has. So I built it myself in the appropriate scale.
The turret has now more details and it can be reached directly from the inner areas of the Falcon.
6) Inner Areas
Now the Falcon has some walls and passages. The floor has been tiled (thanks to Bricklink) and the "lounge" with the game table is closer to the original Falcon. All in all a lot of detail work.
Awesome mods! You fixed everything that was wrong with the initial model. I can see many of the inspiration from the web put into your model as well. I like the way you did the hyper drive area and the arches separating each room.
Hello! Very nice build, the thicker mandibles give balance to the whole model...
Then I really like your cockpit design... I would love to have enough space to do something similar but I wanted to seat 4 so I ended up with the red steering wheel ; ))
Your interior also looks great: I find the chess corner AMAZING. Your couch is a beautiful micro build... I think I will borrow it if you don't mind ! Keep on building
