Product Description
Recreate the audience's first sight of the Falcon! Here's one 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.

Forklift.

Did you notice the ordinary British-made Lansing Bagnall FRER-model red forklift (technically a "reach truck") in the docking bay? It's hidden in plain sight - just sitting quietly against the back wall, equipped with an enormous claw for lifting rolls of paper and other cylindrical objects. Since it appears in making-of shots, it was probably used to build the set in Elstree, England, back in 1976. And then it was just left there once the cameras started rolling.

Note that the safety bars and three support poles are extremely thin and extremely fragile! The poles are only 1mm in diameter. To keep the upper section of the cage printable and protected I've added two extra thin horizontal poles extending from the top of the forklift frame. These two poles aren't present on the actual prototype unit, but can be carefully removed with a fine razor saw and a needle file.

If you plan on having this model in a situation where any handling is required you'll probably want to cut these off, drill new holes, and replace the vertical poles with thin brass rod.


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

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!
