Millennium Falcon – Pirate Ship by David Kennedy


Millennium Falcon – Pirate Ship by David Kennedy is beautiful. According to David’s blog, he researched several modelling forums and decided that he wanted to make this as detailed as he could in order to honour their hobby. I have to say that it is VERY detailed and must have taken ages from start to finish.

Click on the image for a full size. The image itself is hand drawn on a computer and to make each print a little special the artist highlights areas on the print in metallic ink by hand. Each print has a different area done and is unique to that person.

The prints themselves are 70 cms by 100 cms and printed on poster quality 200 gsm silk paper. They’re £175 each plus shipping and limited to an edition size of 100. Each one is hand signed and comes with a Certificate of authenticity. A nice touch, IMO.

What do you think David should do next? Slave 1’s the easy choice, but the colouring would be awesome. perhaps a limited run of Episode VII Falcons?

29/09/15: well, number 12 of 100 arrived today and it is stunning. Anyone sitting on the fence about this print needs to get one, now. The amount of metallic highlighting on mine was very impressive. It also included a little note and David had drawn a tiny Millennium Falcon on the postage tube label. A nice touch in my opinion.

That’s about 3 millimetres. 🙂

Most of the hard work has been done with regard to the detailing. A tryptich representing the Falcon from each of the trilogy would be pretty cool. The Stellar Envoy would represent the PT and it would look awesome with the colouring. The new paint job and rectangular dish on the The Force Awakens one would represent this new trilogy.

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.
