    And what if I took that attitude with the cockpit build, Sir?

    I would like to see one render - the FSF version in the hanger. I would really like to see what the differences are between the ANH version and the FSF version. Is that possible?

    ... well damn, you got me there... heh.


    So, in answer to your second question: it's not really possible, for one reason. The FS Falcon is bigger than the docking bay......

    I said earlier that the bay was 122 feet deep. This is true, but a bit misleading. The floor on its own is only 112 feet deep, and I added 10 extra feet of depth from the first level with the blast doors, to the actual back wall.

    When I measured it, it kind of gave me a shocking perspective on just how monstrous the FS falcon is going to be at 114'... it would take up the entire floorspace of the elstree soundstage used for both original sets...

    Though, I probably could put the FS model in there, for comic effect... let me see about that.

    This sounds interesting. I would love to see how the FSfalcon should look in this hangar.
    Maybe in some shots it will be wiser to cheat and actually is looking better if bigger Compositing wise everything is possible.
    Sure these images are not accurate as Steve suggested but the concept is there if any room can be used for good.

    Im pretty positive Jaitea did a video comparison of solving this mess with the sizes.

    well if nothing else those composites go to show that "size matters not"

    The falcon will look cool with pretty much any dimensions...

    Yes, I did a wee video a while back,.....just a test....I made the footage ofHan on the hull of the Falcon in Echo Base a bit smaller (also Chewie in the cockpit) to make the Falcon a bit truer to scale.

    Wow...I just went through the last 53 pages of this thread, and now my eyes are all blurry/watery...
    First off...AMAZING work here...the rendering of all the different angles we haven't seen before are just overwhelming.
    Second...I don't think I've ever seen so many behind the scenes pics of the Falcon in one place before...A lot of stuff I've never seen before, that's for sure...
    Third...about 40 pages back or so, someone brought up the notion of a viewport or window looking from the main hold out between the mandibles, in the recesses of the jawbox...I'm wondering if anyone pointed out that the AMT/ERTL/MPC 1/72 kit includes this? We all know how accurate this kit is (LOL), but looking at my kit, there's clearly a window/viewport in there...I'm not saying it's canon or anything, but there might be a reason why it's included on the kit...
    Lastly...in docking bay scene from ANH..."What a piece of junk!"...that circular thing with the rod going through it on the top of the Falcon...I always thought it looked like a lid from a large fountain soda with a straw in it...I know it isn't, but I just thought it was funny someone pointed it out with a "wtf is this thing???".
    I love everything I'm seeing in this thread, and can't wait to see more!

    Crazy detail you have in that bay. Beautiful work.
    I've wanted to do a render of this sort with the Falcon for a long time...long time.
    Sorry went all Kenobi there for a second.

    Steve i was wondering if you can identify what part of the ship is seen, when the training remote is shooting at luke.
    I have some feelings that they didnt use the correct backdrop due the limitations of the room.
    It will be interesting what part of the ship SHOULD look when the close ups appear.
    I have included some images for you to see and if anything from these can help you locate the part of the ship.

    Some Clean up
    Thanks in advance!

    Actually that backdrop is quite correct, that really is the bulkhead opposite of the one seen behind Luke when he's engaging the training remote.

    I see why you could think it wasn't, since they had no problem using a completely wrong backdrop in other scene ("help I think I'm melting... " in particular) but really for this effect, they used the correct one.

    If you really want a challenge, (if you haven't done it already) when the stormtrooper is coming out of the mainhold after checking it, the far wall of room doesn't having the continuing corridor, as seen in ESB.

    It would be somewhere about here:

    Also, I just wanted to post the render of mine that Angel touched up, because it really looks great. Take a gander at this...


    (Angel, I hope you don't mind I cropped it, to show off the scene in particular.)

    Its interesting that never again we see that part of the ship and it looks like that has so many similarities with the part behind luke (they seem to alter a few boxes and bags to do the job) One of the facts that might support this, is that we see this angle in Empire and we know how it might looks.

    Ahead of you, still needs polishing or alterations maybe under your guidance .

    Your extended corridor looks good to me. The only thing I could point out is that in ESB we see that the fourth piece of padding from the floor is missing and has exposed pipes.
    The rest of exposed pipe areas between the ESB and ANH is consistent.


    here's a little diagram to show how the backdrop behind the remote is the right one:

    http://www.therpf.com/attachment.php...1&d=1361816107

    I agree with you that it's weird they never show that part of the wall again, since they built it with some detail. But it's there. They did that a lot though, building way more into their sets than actually gets shown. Kind of sad really, but I love the movies anyway. And without this fact, there wouldn't be as many secrets for us to uncover.

    Wow! i would love a render if possible! I sure can camera project it and pseudo some 3d show some distortion as the remote is moving.
    Thanks for the notes !
