Product Description
Recreate the audience's first sight of the Falcon in the first movie! Here is one 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..)


There are a number of yellow-painted doors in the docking bay, and here is one of the doors and frames. They have the same pattern as the one behind which the robots hide from marauding troops in an earlier street scene. 
Note that because of print issues, the cross pattern is very slightly simplified from the screen version.

The set has separate door and frame parts, so you can glue the door into whatever position you wish, open or closed. In fact, with a bit of styrene at the back and a linear servo you could have an animated door!


In the 1:43 scale I have a number of sets: single doorstwo doorsfour doors, and eight doors. Docking Bay 9 4 doors take four doors if you're going for screen accuracy. I've also made a door panel to place next to your street doors.

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!

Fun fact:

Keen-eyed fans will notice that a door with the same rounded criss-cross pattern was painted gloss white and recycled as the front airlock of the ship in the opening sequence. Though seen at the start of the film, this hallway attack was actually one of the last scenes shot in England for the 1977 movie.
