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

This is a model of the angular pale blue box - maybe some kind of power supply? - that sits beneath the Falcon. It has two red lights on the top - quite possibly German-built Hella 2RL rotating beacons with the motors turned off.

I've added small holes for running fibre optics to these lamps. Alternatively an LED right under each one would work. You'll also need to mask off the beacons before painting the body, and clear-coat instead of priming them. Finish off the lights with a little transparent red paint.

Behind-the-scenes photos show that this box had a kind of rectangular exhaust pipe thingie protruding from the top back, but it's too small to 3D print properly, so I've had to approximate its appearance. The top deck of the box is never shown in the movie or in any photos, so again some conjecture was required. However the top handle is definitely visible in the film, as are the flat metal plate where I've put a control panel, and the sort of exhaust dome thing.

The height of the prop is very much a matter of guesswork. I've scaled it to just under a metre tall on the basis of a behind-the-scenes photo. It shows Ford leaning over it, and the top of the box seems to line up with his waist.


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!
