Hmm, it would be hard due to it's technic base, but it's possible.
The only roblem is that you would have to gut it out and rebuild the technic structure to suit the interior, without it becoming weak.
It's very hard.
Trust me, I have been busy reworking a technic set to have a full interior.

I dare to think that nothing is impossible with lego. :sweet:

I do think the UCS is a bit small to make the full interior, making a larger model would be easyer i think.
The minifig scale is approx. 1:39, so if you'd have the dimensions of the real ship...

If you are going to do it, the best of luck on your project! :thumbup:
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

There is no space inside to do that as it is constructed right now.
I bet you would have seen plenty of mocs of it if it was possible.
A guy (Flail) on Brickshelf did this on his 4504 though.
Pretty nice details.
Also check out his other SW mocs on his Brickshelf.

I modded some of them onto my own Falcon, but it broke recently :cry_sad:.

And that has what to do with the question on the MODs of the Millenium Falcon?
Nice pics you've found for us there Ras(74).
I've just gotten the UCS MF myself and I might try to MOD it, once I've gotten around to actually building it :cry_sad:

Ooh! :oh: Nice schematic/blueprints! It sure would be interesting if someone would mod his falcon after these! :thumbup: Of course it's hard to do on the UCS one, but very possible on the minifig sized ones!

Yeah, I saw that too, and I modded my 4504 in the same way, even using some of his techniques (I hope that's OK). That Luke taking a dump is hilarious! :laugh:

Sure it is ok to use others ideas and make them your own.
It is not ok to take his pics and say it´s your own.

Have you ever posted your moc of the MF here?
Would be great to see yours as well.

@ KimT:So you finally got it. Good for you  :wink:
Would have been so crowdy with a forth UCS MF in my appartment back in the special event  :grin:

Even thought the pics are a little huge, I've decided that deeplinking a few will be allowed this time. :classic:
That's one awesome MOD.

Yup finally. I knew it would be crowded back then, so I waited to buy it.
It's not the only thing coming my way.
Next item I get will be a blast and I'm pretty sure I'll review it here :wink:

Saw that last week on BS and man, it's amazing. Something about the layout doesn't seem quite right, though. :sceptic: I think the central circular passage isn't quite big enough, and it looks a bit like a maze with those walls.
True happiness: looking inside the box to see a perfectly flat instruction manual.

It's Lego! Yes it takes time and lots of pieces but other then that there really is no limit to what you can do with those little bricks.

remarkable, just remarkable - and despite all its modding it looks indistinguishable from the normal thing from the outside?

Just amazing
It's all part of the plan....
