We all have our hobbies. Some of us collect stamps. Some of us play instruments. Some of us get really good at watching TV. When you hear about people building models, normally you think of model airplanes or model cars from hobby shops. But what about a model Millennium Falcon?
Reddit user trichner123 posted his project of epic proportions. He built a huge, detailed model of the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars, and the results are pretty unbelievable.
It started out simple enough: just a cardboard outline of the ship.
Slowly and carefully, more pieces supporting the structure of the ship were added and put together.
It’s still just bare-bones at this point, but you can see it’s really coming together.
At this stage, the bulk of the ship’s structure was assembled. It was time to get down to the details.
Adding the details of the ship was obviously an arduous process, but all the nuts and bolts were added to the ship look amazing.
Here’s another shot of the incredible detail on the ship’s exterior.
It’s a big model, too. Here’s a shot showing the scale of the finished Millennium Falcon next to a hand holding a little Millennium Falcon.
Of course you have to get some green screen action shots.
If you think it looks awesome now, wait until you see the backgrounds added.
Yup, that’s the model of the ship flying through space. So cool!
This really was an incredible project, and totally worth the 140 hours it took to complete!
I can’t believe you can build something like this using such simple materials. Now who wants to build a cardboard X-Wing with me?
