Hi guys. Does anyone know what scale the 5 foot Millennium Falcon is? I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me out.
Since there was no "real" MillFalcon, it is somewhat nonsensical to discuss scale. In essence, the "5 footer" WAS the real MF and hence was 1:1 scale. Scaling a model in such situations boils down to 'how big does it look?' Robert Brown & others have attempted to walk the analysis tightrope and make a reasonable correlation between the interior and exterior sets with typically a bias towards the interior sets in order to come up with some working dimensions. For you as the modeler, it is a judgement call & if their work is acceptable, then go with it. For me personally, I am calling the Hasbro Hero 28" 'toy model' at 1:48 scale - close enough to make it fit with the rest of my 1:48 scale collection!
For "practical" reasons, I assume the approximately 5-foot long ANH MillFalcon to be 1:24 scale - aka 'dollhouse scale' - simply because you can park a 1:24 Corvette by the ramp! ;^P
On a happy note... a full 1:1 scale 114 foot Falcon has been built by J.J. for Disney
World. Complete with the full interior and completely accurate to the films. It will be put on display for tours when the new Star Wars area in Disney World is completed.
Album in my profile http://www.therpf.com/album.php?albumid=5233, I gathered together all the reference shots on this site and batched them together by features on the falcon, I will do one later for paint schemeHow do you find this gallery? Sorry for my ignorance...
