A Mock up Millennium Falcon frame in Steve Sansweets collection


Rebelscum recently did a couple of articles on the grand reopening of Steve Sansweet’s Rancho Obi Wan. There were a few bits that caught my eye, but this mock up of the skeletal frame for the full size Falcon used for filming blew me away.

You can see it’s a fair sized model as that SpecPlate on the wall is three feet across. 

Check out the full photos on Rebelscum here and here. I’d thoroughly recommend taking a look.

28/11/12: Mike recently took a trip to Rancho Obi-Wan and took some photos of this model. He was able to confirm that it is a mock up for the full size Falcon as used in the ice Hanger of Hoth.  He took a few nice photos and i have taken the liberty of posting them here.

Again, thanks to Mike for the photos.

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.

  2. Oh yes, yes indeed! When I saw photos of this, I stopped and stared. What an amazing and literally unique item!

    I am hoping for a chance to road-trip down there next year. I will certainly be taking many up-close pics of this!!!!
