Hello everyone,

I’m building a CG replica of the ESB 32" Millennium Falcon model. I’m trying to as accurate as possible.

Here is what I have so far.

no egdge roundings and such yet. I don’t know how large the polycount will be at the end and my PC can’t handle it anymore :slight_smile:

I hope you like it.

Awesome details man! Great to see a fellow fan!

What are your reference? a Bandai plastic model or just the movie?


#3

thank for the kind words.

I’m using photos from the original model as references. A good friend of mine sends me a lot of kitparts which were used for the model so I can make 3D replicas of that parts.

Here is a little bit progress. I’m almost done with the upper “jaws”.

thanks for the nice comment.

Yes, texturing this model will be a really big challenge :slight_smile:


#8

love the detail on it…can’t wait to see it after texturing

I just bought the Star Wars book: Sculpting a Galaxy

It’s a book to display all the maquettes/models the use for the films. It’s perfect for the texture and level of details you want. I will try to scan them and put it on my website. That should help you


#10

yes, same here :wink:

I have that book too. Great stuff for reference.

I’m done with the upper side and started to complete the bottom:

Wow! you’ve certainly an eye for accurately capturing all that detail, very well done indeed. So I’ll definitely bookmark this thread checking on progress. Also BTW out of interest if you don’t mind me asking, what’s the completed model’s polycount?

Cheers.


#14

thank you for the kind words I really appreciate it.

the actual polycont is 1.837.020 polys :slight_smile:


#15

Hello everyone,

started with textures and I’m done with top side colour marks.

I’m not happy with the red colour yet … needs some adjustments.
