Product Description

The Age of Plastic, Destroyer Add-on #1

This is a model of the
 ship with the honour of being the first vehicle to appear on-screen in any film in the world's most lucrative space fantasy franchise - albeit one that's attacked by, and subsequently sucked into, a destroyer in the film's memorable opening sequence.

The ship for Revell Snap-Tite.

The ship is reproduced here at a scale of 1:4000, to match the Revell destroyer "Snap-Tite" toy kit. (NOT the Revell 1:2700 destroyer made in Russia by Zvezda) Approximately, anyway. Ship size is a bit vague in this universe; even more so when it comes to Revell models.

Note that at this small a size, compromises to screen accuracy in terms of component thickness are unavoidable. Even with enlarged guns, fins, and other details, this is a really fragile and brittle model!


Please read the following if you're interested in this thing.

This accurizing part is not a mass-market commercial product. I made it for my own use, and have put it here in case they're of interest to someone else. Possibly you, since you’re reading this.

These items are components for the serious model maker who wants to build a more accurate miniature. They require finishing. If you don't want to trim, file, sand, and glue, then these aren't the parts you're looking for!

The parts are tiny, and easily broken. They push the limits of today's 3D printers. The detail in the digital previews is all there, but it won't always be visible at the miniscule sizes that this scale requires!



Which movie?
Now admittedly matching this ship to the Revell model isn't technically 100% screen accurate, since the latter is modelled after the destroyer design seen in episode 5 and not 4. But if you want to have the episode 5 ship grabbing it, why not?

Lighting
This model is not designed to be lit. It's printed as a single closed object, and is too small to accommodate lighting without a ton of work.

Fun fact 1:
Did you know that this ship, albeit with a simple nose cone and not the later hammerhead design, was meant to be the Falcon? The final saucer shape of the Falcon was a last-minute change, and then the ship was recycled as the blockade runner.

Fun fact 2:
The shooting model's cockpit contains a tiny movie poster and a miniature copy of a Playboy centrefold.

Fun fact 3:
The main shooting model of the ship was actually twice as big as the model of the destroyer that attacks it. Clever optical work, and a second model for the docking bay scene, make it look much smaller.

The original film spacecraft was designed by Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston.
