1:12th Paper craft Cockpit by UHU2


You’re all aware of Hot Toys Stunning Millennium Falcon cockpit diorama that was showcased last year? Alas, for whatever reason, Hot Toys decided not to release this awesome piece, so I have had to whet my whistle elsewhere for this.

Japanese Paper craft modeller and designer UHU02 has released this 1/1:12 paper craft model of the cockpit on his website.

You can download the eight PDF files from his website, but be warned, these files are pretty large and some of them exceed 93MB with the total file size being 441MB. Still, the attention to detail is fantastic and you can see why the documents are so large.

I’m not a modeller and there is no way that I’d have the skill and patience to do this justice, however, I would strongly suggest that you download the PDF’s and keep them as UHU02 is known for releasing his designs for a short time only. I have tried to attach them here but with the files being so large, I’m not sure if they’ll display properly.

Also on the site are seven guides with step by step instructions on how to build this model.

There has been something of a surge in retail paper craft modelling recently, so perhaps we will see this along with a nice accompanying book in the stores sometime soon. 🙂

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 stuff as it increases. Well, that was the plan but it now seems to be more about cataloguing any Millennium Falcon item in general now so that i can come back to them later.
