1:18 Millennium Falcon Cockpit

So I've been building UHU02's Millennium Falcon cockpit in 1:18 scale by printing his 1:11.5 scale at 67%

As I'm nearly done with the build, I had to get . . .

To check the scale.

So, first, check the door:


Now to check the seats!


Although I've got Luke's seat done, I still need to finish Obi Wan's seat in the back.

Darth Vader, the Storm Trooper and the Death Star Commander are extraneous to this prop. Unless I build the rest of the Falcon!

Chewie! Prepare to jump to hyperspace!

Do the windows lift off, or how do you get the figures in there without destroying things?

Looks great, BTW

The outer ring and front Window bay both slide off, giving access to the inside. Also, the interior walls are only attached at the very top and bottom giving access to the rear area as well.

Real ingenious design. I plan to finish Obi Wan's seat and put Obi Wan and Luke in the rear seats with C-3PO at the door and R2-D2 in front of him just behind the console. The console also lifts up allowing seating Han and Chewie in the front seats.

You may use Shunichi's Falcon to build the rest!

Amazing work. I wish I could build one of his models but apparently I'm not smart enough to figure out the riddle of getting his models. I need that guy from Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code to help me, I guess...
