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 match 1:72 Falcon models, such as the old MPC/ERTL/AMT/Airfix kit from the 1970s (which is probably more like 1:68), the now-discontinued Fine Molds 1:72 kit, the Revell Master Series 1:72 kit (which is just the Fine Molds kit reboxed), or the awesome Bandai 1:72 Perfect Grade Falcon.

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 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.

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!
