What happens when you take a Lego Millennium Falcon (7965) and add Wood/Polyshades!?

So I recently bought the Millennium Falcon during the Wal-Mart Clearance event. When I got it home my girlfriend was like “that’s cool but what are you going to do with it after your built it?” I said “I’m going to display it!”… and then the idea came to me… I was going to wall mount it on a trophy-like plaque!

I started with a 24’ piece of ply wood and a stencil I created by enlarging a Renegade Squadron symbol from Wikia

I cut it out with a jigsaw, sanded it, and finished it with Polyshades Antique Walnut. Placed two L-Brackets to support the set...

Then I ordered the parts to make the display like sold with the UCS Falcon... and as they said in Episode I "this is sooo wizard, Anni!"

Here's a Link to my Flickr PhotoStream for more and larger pics of my project

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

    Very cool idea. Wonder if you should paint the wood black to make the Falcon stand out more? But regardless...nice, cool project. Should look great on display.

    I thought about painting it but I was trying to go more for the "Deer Head Trophy Over the Fireplace" Look lol. And the guy at Lowes who helped me pick the wood out would die if I painted this quality piece of project wood :-)

    Great idea! It looks very nice. It seems like it would make your non-LEGO fan guests more interested.
