Solo Millennium Falcon cross section by Richard Chasemore


Although there was no Incredible Cross Sections release for Solo: A Star Wars story, I am pleased to see that there was an exclusive cross section in DK’s Official guide book by Pablo Hidalgo. Unfortunately, the only decent image I can find is the German version of the book. (thanks to my friend Brian for pointing this out to me)

Created by Richard Chasemore, (one of the original DK Star Wars cross section team), it is chock full of detail. It is incredible to think that this is hand drawn and hand painted by the artist.  (see below for photos from Richard’s Facebook page.)

 

Nice to see L3-37 in there. I also think that a cross section of the dart would be in order, too. We know nothing about this extension to the Falcon.

I wonder if we will see a publication with all three cross sections together? (In a gatefold, of coarse, as I really detest the page folds.) I’d love to look through each one, but I don’t really have the room.

 

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.

    actually, the cross section books need something called a layflat binding. Bit more pricey but that would eliminate the gap between the pages. However, I don’t know how many pages can be binded that way.

      It is kinda frustrating that these magnificent images are hindered by the binding. I’d pay extra for a “Lay Flat” binding. Perhaps as an ebook or paid PDF download would be a better option for the larger pieces of artwork.

        I suggest they are not safe enough for reproducing prints

      • Brian says:

        however, have you ever contacted him, whether he’s allowed to sell a print? I believe the licencing is something difficult to get around

      • mffanrodders says:

        I did try to contact him to see if he would be able to give me a good image of the painting. No response, but I’m hopeful. 🙂 I wonder if he has the original.
