Replicating The Millennium Falcon Filming Model
Adam clued us onto this impressive model kit from UK-based DeAgostini: a studio scale replica of the Millennium Falcon, broken down into 25 sets. DeAgostini kits are weekly and monthly subscriptions--you pay a set price every month to get more of the kit until its finished. In the Falcon model's case, it'll take two years. But at 32-inches, this model was designed with the help of replica propmaker Steve Dymszo, the founder of Master Replicas. Here, he explains the meticulous research that he and the MR team (including eFX founder Bryan Ono) put into their original replica, from multiple visits to the Lucasfilm Archives and help from fan builders.
