Millennium Falcon Being Built. For Real.

What’s the coolest thing about Star Wars? Is it Bobba Fett? Han Solo? The Death Star? Nowhere near.  The only answer is, of course, the Millennium Falcon.  And now some plucky Americans have taken it upon themselves to recreate the best space ship ever made on a 1:1 basis.

Yes that’s 1:1.  As in real-life size.

A full-size version of possible THE most iconic Spaceship ever.  This is possible the geekiest, yet coolest, Star Wars project ever.  A real life Falcon. Okay, so it wont do the Kessel run in any amount of Parsecs but hey, it’s one hell of a talking point.

Chris Lee and his team of friends expect the project to take many years. According to Lee, “This is a quest to build the ultimate Star Wars prop: a 1:1 scale ESB/ANH hybrid Millennium Falcon with complete, correctly scaled interior. Yes, I have completely lost my mind, just like most of my friends and family say. Except for my close Star Wars fan friends, who say ‘cool, can I help?'”
