    I just stumbled upon this youtube post from youtuber "Alternate Bricks":



    Jang also has a post about his Kylo shuttle mod, but he doesn't get in to the "how" he did it.  There are other mods on youtube as well.

    Now, back to the MF stand discussion.  :)

    Thanks. The amount of work to be done still is quite substantial. Bricklinking parts has taken longer than I thought but as soon as they are all in I’ll be stripping the Lego parts off before drilling holes for lighting.

    The biggest job remaining is working out how I’m fixing the glass to the opening mechanism as well as being able to dismantle the table in the future for when it needs to be moved as it will be too big and heavy to fit through a doorway once the base is attached.

    Today my coffee table arrived. This was a custom job I designed on Google Sketchup long before my falcon arrived. I was able to draft a family member into helping with construction. I apologise in advance for the image quality off my mobile. As you can see i've used a solid wooden frame with perspex sides. The table is finished with a black wood stain and it will be completed in the next week with toughened glass to complete that coffee table look. (lights may follow) Hope you enjoy

    @RPK72 hey man! Sure the dimensions are as follows.... Glass 915mm X 615, perspex 2 x 600mm X 250mm and 2 x 900mm X 250m.... Over all dimension 964mm X 664mm X 314mm. The Falcon only has enough room to display facing head on with no room for tilt or rotation and the widest part just skims through the opening but has nice room around the perspex sides. Overall I am pleased with the size as it is a brute but it was about as small and sleek as I could make it.

    Hello everyone,

    New to the forum and wanted to share my Millennium Falcon 75192 display/table that I had custom built. 

    * Glass is 48 inch x 30 inch with a 3 inch band of wood around the outside
    * The glass top frame is on a hinge that lifts up 90 degrees 
    * Closed in on all 4 sides with acrylic
    * Inside measurements of the cube is equal to that of the glass top
    * Next step LEDs 

    I pick up the table this weekend so pictures to follow with the 75192 inside

    Mines still boxed, awaiting:
    A, space
    B, Time
    C, suitable resting place

    The tables seem best idea I think, its whether Mrs will allow it in the lounge.

    Slightly off topic question, but is to do with displays, I like these wooden frames and in black they look good. Has anyone ever considered adding Lego to cover the wood, cos Im thinking that now, as a wood finish wouldnt really suit our lounge, needs to be shiny! :)

    Looking at the recent posts of tables, cant help thinking some bases to hide the wood may or may not look good. Anyway, just my thoughts

    I have wood covering half of my display area. I’m still in the process of building up lego to hide the wood on the sides. I’ve not gone for the baseplate option, it would mean a lot of baseplates to cover the area needed so I’m painting the base instead.

    Gave up trying to find a premade solution to display it, went ahead and built a table for it.  It's simplistic but it gets the job done.

    48"l x 32"w x 18"h.  Casters add a couple inches to the height so roughly 22" with them.

    That amount of extra space is begging to be filled by some scenery. Question is which scenario will you display the falcon in?

    I've not seen a jaku display yet, could build up the outpost gate and add some tattered tarps to the Falcon (Boba Fett buildable fig cape would be great for this) add in the heros and bb8 running for the ramp too

    That's the next step, just can't decide what I want to do.

    The Millennium Falcon UCS #75192 Lego Set has found it's home inside our home.

    This display / table turned out absolutely amazing.

    That’s a big table. Wish I had the space to be able to display it like that.

    I have the rest of the week off and I'm going to start building the Falcon.  Quick question for those who have already done so - is the completed model easy / difficult / impossible to move?

    I'm going to have to work on our dining room table, but there's no way it can stay there for more than a couple of days.  I've got a table in the corner (which I suspect isn't going to be big enough anyway), so what's the likelihood of me picking it up and carrying it about 15 feet without it all going pear-shaped?

    Cheers!

    It' very stable, so long as it stays mostly parallel to the floor. Tipping it high on edge is slightly more risky as the edges of the panels may take extra pressure based on how you carry it. Over all though it is much like the SSD just larger and heavier. (Meaning take care in your movements but otherwise should be fine)

    Thats coming on nicely squirell. Are you adding Jabba to it and going special edition, or keeping it 'real'! ? :)

    No Jabba. I’ve got a squad of Stormtroopers ready to chase Luke, Han and the others into the Falcon. Even managed to find a custom Imperial Spy to lead the troopers in.

    Nope - its designed for the new UCS MF - 75192 - not 10179. The support beam across the back of the stand shows the new set number
  • monkeyhangermonkeyhanger Member Posts: 2,835
    ^ It does say on the website that the stand is built to order, so "out of stock" status might not mean "unavailable" - might have to ring to order one. Is the "optional" mini-fig stand an additional cost or just optional to display it? No indications on mini-fig stand cost at all that I can see.
  • Muftak1Muftak1 Somewhere cold, probably raining (aka Ireland)Member Posts: 487
    The total for the 2 is £58 (stand for ship on its own is 40 something)

    They've been releasing them in batches (midweek and fridays last week). If you sign up for their newsletter you'll get an email saying when they go on sale. From what I gathered it was only about 10 at a time and they go pretty quickly - I managed to get an order in on Friday.

    ^ You must've grabbed mine, as it's out of stock again now. :P

    I was ready to order last night when a tranche became available (according to the email notification I got), but they were out of stock when I looked.

    Part of me is thinking that I should build one out of Lego black technic beams and black parts  as you'd see on an official part of the kit on most UCS models.

    There is a great set of plans out there, and I think it ended up costing me around $50 in bricklink...

    This one?
    https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-10219/Lucioswitch81/effermans-vertical-stand-for-millennium-falcon-75192/#comments

    I thought about it, and also in black in alignment with the rest of the UCS stands, but thinking about Technic makes my fingers ache ;-)

    I decided to go with this:
    https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-0631/jmfbtb/lego-docking-bay-327-for-ucs-falcon/#comments
    ...with some adjustments/variations as I procure the parts. It'll probably take me a year to gather all the pieces; hopefully enough time to figure out how to enclose it.

  • monkeyhangermonkeyhanger Member Posts: 2,835
    Bricklink says I can get all the bits I need in LBG from 2 sellers for about £58 (including 1 set of postage from Germany, but also a TBC postage from Hungary to add on. Probably talking £64 all in. 

    Might see his much I can do a predominantly black one for. Would I prefer all LBG or mostly black with some LBG (some technic connection bits unavailable in black).
  • Pate5346Pate5346 Member Posts: 758
    I shouldn't have looked at that @JooTog
    Although for permanent display I've build the vertical stand due to space restrictions (although MF is still in shipping box until I'll have time to build display cabinet )

    Yeah, I'll check that out I thought. One shop, with 100% of the parts, £2,700. Needless to say, may take me a while lol :)
  • Habitant99Habitant99 FloridaMember Posts: 99
    I modded the Efferman to be more horizontal than vertical to fit my space, and you can get away with some color on the stand to save a few bucks.  Probably about 70% of it needs to be in black, though.  Some of the parts were literally 1/5th the price in another color, so I might have some orange here & there... :)
  • Pate5346Pate5346 Member Posts: 758
    @colay I just looked at that too but the bricks I checked were over priced compare to Lego Pick a Brick also the 48 x 48 baseplates were 200 euro for six. So yes you get all the bricks but too expensive.

    Could someone confirm colors for me. I just looked at the colors and slightly confused as per part list Dark bluish gray what is current equivalent Dark stone gray?

    I was confused about this also. After a bit of research right here in this forum, it seems that both are exactly the same color:
    - Dark Stone Gray: Official LEGO name
    - Dark Bluish Gray: AFOL name due to the blueish tint of the color.

    The 95% black option is about 20% cheaper than the 99% LBG option for a European buyer on Bricklink right now. I will check my parts bin for what I might have (only the small stuff), but it might mean the difference between 2 orders or 3. Then I will buy. 

    I'd still rather be doing a Hoth Hangar scene if I had the room.
  • Pate5346Pate5346 Member Posts: 758
    @monkeyhanger I think you can get the LBG one for about £52- £55 max from two sellers on BL.  Just checked it now.  ( I've used one for most of the parts and he's very good ) 
    I've done it for £53 from one seller on BL and Lego
