ship of riddles

This page was conceived and built by Robert Brown.

I have been intrigued by the Millennium Falcon, particularly the seemingly insoluble riddle of it's interior layout, since 1977. Now, at last, I can present the results of my exhaustive analysis. I have armed myself with nearly 70 digitised widescreen movie shots. Also presented are photos from many other sources including rare shots of the Millennium Falcon set under construction, 'blueprints' from four different sources, details of the 'cutaway' AMT8789 model, early Ralph McQuarie production paintings and other rare stuff.

With all this ammunition, I can CONQUER THE WORLD!
errr ummm well, actually I'll just talk about the Millennium Falcon - a lot.
