The Full Scale Millennium Falcon Project

posted by Jason Kottke   Oct 18, 2012

Chris Lee and his friends have embarked on a project to build a 1:1 scale model of the Millennium Falcon, complete with a correctly scaled interior.

I own a secluded 88 acre tract of wooded land where we’ll be building. We have selected a site on the property that is low enough so that the top of the Falcon can be seen easily from several vantage points. A flat area roughly 400’ x 400’ is being cleared. And yes, I am aware that it will eventually show up on Google Earth and Google Maps. I’m counting on that.
