Product Description

Recreate the audience's first sight of the Falcon in the first movie! Here are two of the scenic accessories you need to make a diorama of Docking Bay 9 4.

The parts are scaled to 1:43, to match the De Agostini Falcon kit or the Master Replicas collectible. (admittedly to be totally accurate, neither model is correct for a 1977 Docking Bay 9 4, since they both have ESB era Falcon details. Though this is arguably less of an issue for the SE release of ANH, which introduced the ESB Falcon into the CGI scenes..)

These objects are the mysterious low yellow-painted tank-like things situated over on the left side of the set. Presumably they're just throbbing with magic spaceship fuel, but who knows? In the movie they're surrounded by piles of silvery accordionlike hoses, which I haven't included with this model - you're best off using fine wire for that.

Note that the tanks are only seen from one angle - the front - in the original movie. Behind the scenes photos don't reveal any other useful angles. So it's possible that they weren't actually oblong shapes, the way I've designed them. However, without more accurate sources, we may never know for sure. The tanks are also depicted in the part-model part-CG landing sequence in AOTC, but they seem to be more rectilinear in that sequence and less curved.


Please read the following if you're interested in these items.

These accurizing parts are not mass-market commercial products. I made them for my own use, and have put them here in case they're of interest to someone else. Possibly you, since you’re reading this.

These 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!
