I don't really collect the microfighter line, but I couldn't resist snapping up one of my favorite Star Wars vehicles, the Millennium Falcon (75030). I just loved the concept of having this iconic vessel in something like chibi form! And then I started to tinker. And tinker some more. About a dozen iterations later, here is the final result: For reference, here's the before... And the after... I am calling this a MOD, since the official set was clearly the starting point. But much of the structure and many of the details have been entirely changed. Notably: * Minifig seat replaced by scale cockpit. (Tricky SNOT work, as I wanted it to be angled top AND bottom.) * Flick-fire missiles replaced by scale "gun turret" (dish and binoculars). * Starboard hatch added, same position and scale as port hatch. * Radar dish moved forward to more closely resemble original proportions. * Entirely new SNOT engine array. * New underside with actual landing gear. * Many dark bley parts replaced with light bley. Minor tan accents added. * Reworked area between mandibles, sloping symmetrically on both dorsal and ventral sides. * Custom-built stand. And Chewbacca, because it's just not the Falcon without Chewbacca! Here are some additional angles. Needless to say, this thing is highly swooshable! Here's a better look at the new SNOT engines. Incredibly basic, but it works beautifully! And one final angle on the whole package together: EDIT - For anyone (like LEGODrongo01 below) who would like some assistance making a similar MOD, here is a LDR file that I made using LDCad. Just click the image: EDIT 2 - Model updated with the NEW 2016 "Light Bluish Gray Plate, Round Half 3 x 6 with 1 x 2 Cutout" from 75136 Droid Escape Pod. This replaces the two 3x3 plates with curve for a rounder contour. (I also replaced most of the dark bluish gray plates with light bluish gray.)
