We’ve finally done it, the Millennium Falcon is complete! We’ve been working on it every Sunday morning and we had a ton of fun. The entire timelapse was recorded on an Iphone 11 pro max and the 29 parts were assembled on Apple Imovie.
I made the background music loop on Apple Logic Pro X with an Akai midi keyboard. I wish that I could have edited the track a bit further and that I could have made a live recording instead of bouncing the loop but I was a bit short on time and I still have much to learn abut Logic Pro.
We have purchased a 3D printed stand from Wicked Brick and it will be placed on top of the cabinet that you can see right behind me. It will still have to wait January because we’ll first use it to display the LEGO Haunted House (10273) that we’re about to build for Halloween and, later, the Winter village which will stay until the end of December.
The build continues… We’ve now completed the 8th step on 17. The model is getting big and heavy, I’m very glad that we’ve purchased a 3D printed stand that can hold it vertically because we don’t own a table that could hold it horizontally, except our dining table, unfortunately we still have to eat. We also continue to record timelapses of the build and I can’t wait to see the final video.
We’ve completed the second step of the Millennium Falcon. Instead of a picture of the build, we’ve tried something new: we’ve recorded a timelapse. I won’t publish the next videos until the process is complete, so I can make one that will cover the entire build. It will take a while though, since the build is divided in 17 steps and we only work on it once a week. I’ve recorded the video with an iPhone 11 Pro max and a Neewer holder mounted on a Vanguard photography tripod.
We’ve had a very comfy Sunday. Brussels was under the snow, and we were all cozy, completing the first step of the Millennium Falcon. The build is already massive and I don’t think that our dining table will be big enough to hold the Falcon, the instruction manual and the parts for the next steps. We’re probably gonna have to use our coffee table as well.
Something else that will change in the next steps is that I’ll be able to capture a time-lapse of the build… I’ve just ordered an iPhone stand that’s compatible with my photography tripod. So, expect to see us hard at work next week.
We’ve opened the box of the Millennium Falcon that we’ve offered ourselves for Christmas. The Instruction Manual is huge (Harry Potter minifig for reference), 466 pages to assemble the 7541 pieces. We’re gonna be busy for a while…
