Hey everyone.
I want to make a Millenium Falcon from balsa wood and was wandering if anyone knows of any build plans for this? I’ve searched everywhere and can’t find anything. I’m tempted to get the Bandai 1/72 perfect grade kit but would rather build it all myself from scratch. Any help will be very much appreciated.

What size do you want it to be? 1/144, 1/72 as you said or bigger than that? Interior? What episode? Climate?

Apologies for the lack of detail, I’m very new here.
I think somewhere the same size as the 1/72 model and the same ship (from The Empire Strikes Back). I just want the exterior with the exception of the cockpit interior.

Check out Steve Neill's Enterprise thread from about 9 years ago, his method for making the saucer should work for the Falcon.

There's measurements of the 5' studio model by Andre and Maruska you could scale down to approx 1/72
just not sure exactly what the 5' Falcon's scale is (1/20 - 1/24 ??)
That's the core dimensions by the way, the outer layer of plating goes over that.
