    I'm having Tracy Witts build a replica of the Millennium Falcon cargo hold to go with Phillip's holochess table. The room will replicate the ESB version of the Falcom cargo hold and used to display my Master Replica and eFx weapon replica collection.

    Here's a photo of the WIP bench.

    This is going to be epic and outstanding! I can't wait to see progress pics and the finished product!! Great stuff!!

    There's a member here who's building a "smuggler themed" room in his basement that this would look awesome in! You two should get together and share ideas. I'm sure he'll be along soon.

    Keep us posted!

    I never really thought of that area as a cargo hold, but I guess it is.

    Excellent work. That will be an exciting bit of decor.

    I've got a bad feeling about this.

    I'm going to be watching this very. Intently.

    I love the Falcon, but it's never struck me as an efficient cargo vessel. Is it possible the Corellians were the Studebakers of their time?

    Here's a few photos my friend Tracy sent me of his progress, and a couple answers...

    Every bit of reference possible is being used for the design. Though the seating is hard sculpted in the movie, this is padded with automotive vinyl on the surface. Each individual piece is being shaped, padded and upholstered, with many strings that will be used to pull it into the supporting structure and more padding. There are about 150 of these individual pieces to make up the seating pads.

    You could easily build an instructable if you keep taking lots of pictures. I'm sure it would make a huge splash!

    Re: Millinieum Falcon Display Room

    Neat idea. Is this seating area the entirety of the project, or one part of what will be a "whole room" of Falcon?

    Edit: Ah, nevermind. I didn't see that this page loaded from post #13, so the info was given in the initial post...

    very nice work! upholstery is my profession, very cool :) I'm curious as to how you got the bent pieces, do you team bend em or was it laminated to a form?

    Re: Millinieum Falcon Display Room

    I'm building one of my Holochess Tables for the OP (the pawn). He had always wanted a themed room like mine, so I put him in touch with my friend Tracy, who is doing the work now between his normal furniture projects. Tracy can build anything, so this is a fun challenge for him.

    It's the beginning of a number of projects he will be doing. This one so the chess table has a nice place to sit in the pawn's building.

    And yes, Tracy told me he's already past 15k staples and not done yet.

    It's bendable ply, and my guess is he used a vacuum bag to adhere it to a form with a slow setting glue. I'll ask next time I talk to him to make sure.

    wow, this is looking great.

    you probably have already gathered plenty of reference, but I wanted to share something I'd noticed about the seat. The little boxes with switches, inset into the cushions, have the same greebles as the escape pod hatch on the blockade runner. See attached image. Though, this is for the ANH crash couch only, since them seem to have changed the detail on the ESB couch.

    keep up the good work!
