Millennium Falcon 3D Model Part 9

Post-Halloween update? Mostly been adding the exterior armor plating every now and then over the summer. Certainly been time-consuming, but in the end a worthwhile endeavor. At least that's what I keep telling myself before I go back to making the ship fly under a full physics simulation. Easier to make a texture from a high polygon model than the reverse right?

Engine Vector Plates: June 24, 2018
Front-Port Side Armor Plates: June 25, 2018
Front-Port Side Armor Plates 2: June 27, 2018

Front Armor Plates: July 1, 2018

Starboard Armor Plates: July 3, 2018

Docking Port Armor Plates: July 6, 2018

Boarding Ramp Armor Plates: July 7, 2018

Engine Exhaust Section: July 8, 2018

Rear-Port Side Armor Plates: July 9, 2018
 For a majority of these plates, I've been modeling the 'clean' version without any of the holes cut out for lighting or mechanical access points. For some of them I actually did model in the cuts, but filled them in to 'punch out' later.

Completed dorsal armor plates: July 9, 2018

Rear landing gear / cargo ramp armor plates: July 10, 2018

Cargo ramp: July 11, 2018

Interior cargo ramp with a rough scale model of the Last Jedi escape pod: July 11, 2018

Decent time gap here. Found some inspiration after a busy and rough first half of the fall semester.

Mandible side and headlight details: October 28, 2018

Mandible maintenance hole details: October 30, 2018
The Last Jedi escape pod launcher test: October 30, 2018
This final Millennium Falcon image for this post features an attempt to place the escape pod as seen in The Last Jedi. Here I have it wedged in between the (non-canon?) aft cargo ramp and the starboard landing gear bay. As some eagle-eyed folks on the internet have noted since the Last Jedi was released, the location the escape pod pops out in the film does seem to conflict with that landing gear bay.

I'm not even bothering with how to resolve the interior of the escape pod room as seen in the film which Stinson Lenz covers in his blog at this time. Probably will finish up the exterior before I go back to that.

Lastly as an excuse to switch gears (slightly), here's the start of a new 3D model:

VCX-100 main body: November 1, 2018
The Corellian VCX-100 light freighter as seen in Star Wars: Rebels and Rogue One as 'The Ghost.' Also mentioned in Solo: A Star Wars Story. I've been grabbing reference material for this ship for a while since Rebels season 2? Finally got inspired to start since I recently found this screenshot of the 3D model used in Rogue One and also some tracks from the Rebels soundtrack is on my playlist when I tend to work on these models.

VCX-100, Millennium Falcon, X-Wing, Y-Wing, and Lambda Shuttle models all in scale: November 1, 2018
