Ramp Hall & Airlock Corridor MOD Part Set

Made by
Not For Sale
Product Description
I have spent many months and countless hours to design and create a finely detailed and functional mod for the DeAgostini Millennium Falcon. This is a set of parts for the Loading Ramp and the Airlock Entry that goes into a curved corridor. Each part is my original design, and not anything that Model Space or DeAgostini has made for this model. Additional credit goes to LrdSatyr8, for collaborating with me on this daring endeavor. Also, I give credit to bluevioce, who created some fantasic detail on the inside of the ramp hall walls.

The Hull Frame will need to be cut, sanded, and finished to make this mod fit properly inside the model, so this part set is not a plug-and-play or direct bolt-on kit, and is not recommended for novice or average model builders.

The ramp motor and ramp light LED strip will be relocated in this mod, so do not install them as of yet for this project. The curved corridor floor has open slots on its outside borders, to allow optional LED or side-lit fiber optic lines for illumination.

For a reference, I've attached a photo of the modified hull framing, and which metal sections need to be removed. In this case, hull frame sections BF-05, BF-06, BF-07, and BF-08 need to be cut with a rotary tool and a cutting disk, such as a Dremel and a no.409 or no.420 cutoff wheel. Save any of the 2-hole and 4-hole frame connectors and all the screws for spares, because one 2-hole frame connector will need to be added to the existing frame sections (BF-07 and BF-08, see attached photo). All the mounting standoffs for the ramp motor will also need to be cut off flush and sanded smooth. The existing metal ramp hinge will be replaced with my one-piece low profile ramp hinge.

The Ramp Hall & Airlock Corridor MOD Part Set includes the following parts:
  1. Stern Sidewall (X1)
  2. Bow Sidewall (X1)
  3. Outer Ramp Hall Short Wall (X1)
  4. Ramp Hall Ceiling (X1)
