Welcome aboard!

So you want to learn more about the models and sets of the Millennium Falcon? That beloved fictitious pirate spacecraft from the movies? Then this fun-filled site is for you!
WHAT’S HERE, AND WHAT’S NOT

These pages talk about how the on-screen Falcon was actually made. In other words, the real-life models and sets that created the illusion of a beat-up hotrod in space. I also review some commercial model kits of the ship.

In-story fictional aspects (how Lando did this, how Han did that, the Corellian shipyards, etc) are not the focus of this site. Neither is post-movie marketing stuff like "blueprints" which expand the fantasy universe to talk about fictitious rocket engines or whatever. The focus of Millennium Falcon Notes is model-making and special effects.
