Times are still tough for a lot of people in America these days, but who says citizens can’t spend ludicrous amounts of money constructing full-scale models of spacecrafts from their favorite science fiction movies? That’s exactly what Chris Lee is doing, putting a team together at Full Scale Falcon to build a full-scale replica of Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon and putting him in the running for one of the craziest and biggest Star Wars nerds I’ve ever heard of.
They’ve really thought this thing out, and it seems like they’re totally serious about getting this bad boy completed. Check out their specs:

Lee and his team are hoping to finish the project in the next 5-7 years!
