Millennium Falcon 7965 modified to within an inch of its life

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Last post of post of what I have built for a while. Then I will leave you alone.

As a wise man once said, when you have spare time you tinker with the Falcon. In my case that means 7965. This time I wanted to try and recreate Flynn2000's fantastic interpretation of the famous Flail modifications to 4504. Then I went on and messed around endlessly. The main changes to 7965 are totally re-building the mandibles, and moving the cockpit back which was fun but very difficult!

Two of the roof plates have swapped places in the last photo but the light was so amazing I decided to leave the photo in. It is a hunk of junk, anyway...

This is an incredibly well done mod. I did something similar, but the build of 7965 / 75105 is so limiting that I had to end up completely rebuilding it. This is amazing though, especially the interior

Beautiful MOD! Makes me want to rebuild my taken apart 7965 and tinker with it :wink:

Looks great! I really like the front mandibles!

Thanks! I really wanted to find a way to make the circular vent things as actual holes, but without having those circular 'rings' on the surface as in 75105.

Nice on the interior!  Really liking how clean she looks.  

Thanks! The Porgs did the cleaning before settling down to relax with a game of Holochess. :wink:

Nice video and stand. Catchy music!

Oh, I wouldn't fancy having to completely re-build it! Did it work out well? Moving the cockpit back was enough to drive me demented...

Ta! I do think the basic design of 7965 and its cousins is clever, in the way that it has a sturdy, circular frame, and the roof opens out without having to take off a lid. It has stood the test of time through several models anyway.
