  1. 75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017 MOD/MOC

    I've thought about that. My other issue is that the forward left and right vents are not level with rear ones. So even if the grills themselves were aligned, they would would be off-kilter. But that would mean re-engineering the rear panels somewhat, and I'm not sure I'm up for that.

    I haven't seen anyone mod this section yet. I've been kicking around a similar idea but I haven't have a chance to implement it yet. I've been monitoring this thread hoping that somebody would come up with something, but so far nothing yet.

    Interesting. Those are great reference photos! The CG SE version looks like it might have been the model that the set designers based the coloring on. I noticed in imgur gallery that the dark gray stripes only seem to be apparent on the underside of the mandibles. They're on both the left and right side, but only in some shots.

    I didn't realize how much I didn't like the dark bluish gray diagonal stripe on the front mandible until after I had built it. Seeing the pictures here with those pieces replaced with light bluish gray makes it look so much better. I'm not sure why that coloration was added to this design. I can't find any reference photos that show a darkened stripe there. It only serves to disguise the holes in the mandibles, which are an important distinguishing feature. Swapping out the DBG for LBG pieces here will probably be my first modification to the ship once it's complete, if I can even wait that long.

    I love the mods that people have made here. It's perfectly in keeping with the history of the Falcon. I'm still working on the factory build but I'm looking forward to being able to say that "I've made a lot of special modifications myself." Anyway, I signed up just to say thanks to efferman for the plans for the vertical stand. I've already ordered the parts for it. It looks like I'll be able to display the Falcon somewhere in my small apartment after all!
