Millennium Falcon Day 9 Build Journal

Millennium Falcon Day 9 (Build Journal)

Progress continues on Millennium Falcon day 9. I assembled the eleventh bag set, and it was relatively quick. In total, it took me 47 minutes which is the fastest time yet. Consequently, my total time is now 14 hours and 45 minutes. This build consisted of the tops to the airlock corridors that I started assembling yesterday. There is a fair amount of greebling work that makes the build look realistic. Otherwise, there is not a whole lot to say about this build, I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

One thing I am beginning to notice about the set in general is limited use of interior space. The Millennium Falcon’s exterior is really the main build. Yes, you assemble some interior spaces. However, compared to the size of the ship, those spaces are small. Most of the interior of the build is structural support. The interior of the corridors I built yesterday and today remain completely inaccessible in the final display, for example. This is not a great playset if you were hoping to build it yourself then let the kids have a go. That is not to say that I would not have loved to play with this as a kid. However, smaller Falcon sets look like they have more play space based on set pictures.

That is it for today’s entry. Tomorrow I will try to embark on a multi-hour build… We will see how far I get. In the meantime, enjoy the Millennium Falcon day 9 time lapse video below. Until next time,
