A Mock up Millennium Falcon frame in Steve Sansweets collection


Rebelscum recently did a couple of articles on the grand reopening of Steve Sansweet’s Rancho Obi Wan. There were a few bits that caught my eye, but this mock up of the skeletal frame for the full size Falcon used for filming blew me away.

You can see it’s a fair sized model as that SpecPlate on the wall is three feet across. 

Check out the full photos on Rebelscum here and here. I’d thoroughly recommend taking a look.

28/11/12: Mike recently took a trip to Rancho Obi-Wan and took some photos of this model. He was able to confirm that it is a mock up for the full size Falcon as used in the ice Hanger of Hoth.  He took a few nice photos and i have taken the liberty of posting them here.

Again, thanks to Mike for the photos.

 

About mffanrodders

A keen Star Wars collector since 1977, my collection focus seems to have taken on a turn towards Han Solo's iconic Star Ship. Why the Millennium Falcon? No one else seemed to have one at the time and it was fair to say that i had difficulty resisting the higher end models. My friend, icruise from Rebelscum has a superb blog for his Jabba the Hutt collection, I thought that i'd start this blog to chart my own collection of Millennium Falcon related collectibles as it increases.

    I am hoping for a chance to road-trip down there next year. I will certainly be taking many up-close pics of this!!!!
