Chris Lee is the mastermind behind the Full Scale Falcon project which is on course to construct a full scale interior and exterior replica of the Millennium Falcon starship from STAR WARS.  Lee is leading the exciting enterprise along with a team of friends and volunteers, which over the course of the next 5-7 years will build an exact copy of the ship on his 88-acre Tennessee property.  A 400′ x 400′ area is being cleared, and numerous pieces of the ship have already been built and are ready to be installed.  For the technical drawings, Lee and his team are using these STAR WARS blueprints as their guide.  Lee notes that the interior sets seen in the film would never have fit inside the exterior of the Millennium Falcon as seen in the movie, so he and his design team have made a few adjustments for the perfect compromise.  The final dimensions of the full size replica will be as follows:

 Length = 114 feet
 Beam (docking ring to docking ring) = 81.5 feet
 Height to top of body (not counting quad-laser turret) = 24.9 feet
 Height to top of dish = 30.9 feet
 Clearance (ground to landing gear bay level) = 7.8 feet
 Clearance (ground to outside of bottom of cockpit tube) = 13.1 feet
