Papercraft Star Wars Millennium Falcon by Bernard Szukiel

This Star Wars Millennium Falcon took four years to build and is almost completely (99%) constructed from paper. Takes me all my time to seal an envelope properly never mind fold it, roll it, stick it and paint it.

Fiber optic cables, LEDs and a few small plastic parts finish of the model, which is 38 inches long. The builder, Bernard Szukielreferenced countless stills of the famous ship and has done a wonderful job recreating an on-screen look with an amazing attention to detail. What’s next for this creative paper artist, perhaps a full size version? Check back here in 25 years time.

Amazing Star Wars Millennium Falcon Drone

Han Solo’s heavily modified YT-1300 light freighter from the original Star Wars trilogy is one of the most iconic spaceships in pop culture. It’s no wonder, then, that a drone enthusiast named Olivier C sought to combine the affordable power and speed of today’s drones with the irresistible shape and design of the Millennium Falcon. Story Via Forbes and The Daily Dot.

In a Reddit thread on the site’s DIY forum, Olivier explained that he built the Falcon around a powerful quadcopter model. The quadcopter “is an overpowered little beast,” he wrote, adding that it was “easily capable of 90km/h [56 miles per hour] horizontal speed.” With his special customizations, however, that dropped to “probably about 30km/h,” or 19 mph.

“If I try to go faster with more angle it’s making a cool backflip,” Olivier added.

The entire project cost just over 1,000 Euros, or $1,142, with the vast majority of that going into the quadcopter unit and its radio controller.

You can watch the radio-controlled Falcon‘s first two flights below.



The story hit the net with a bang. Olivier added “Only few hours after it all began I already have 200+ messages in my mail box, and I’m not sure I want to know how much there will be tomorrow morning when I wake up.

Also I had to explain my wife why I was typing on my laptop like a mad man.”

Oliviers build page can be found on RCGroups. His next project? That’s a secret.
