I had a spare Millennium Falcon that I converted into Lando's.

So just a rundown on how I did this - The radar dish and escape pod were from the Revell Falcon kit from Solo. I removed the old radar dish, filed down the peg and drilled a hole so the new dish could fit. It sits in there firmly and can still rotate. The escape pod was cut accordingly so it could fit between the mandibles. I didn't want to, but for it to fit I had to file down the engine part of the escape pod, so its just the outer shell. I thought I could get the escape pod to eject when I fired the missile but it's not that strong unfortunately. The escape pod is removable however.

I spray painted the ship with Rust Oleum Perfect Gray. For the markings I used Citadel Macragge Blue, also using painter's tape to get the lines straight. I also cut up some pieces of styrene sheet and covered the exposed panels (minus one) and also sprayed them with Perfect Gray. With the exception of two, I was able to fit them in. The others I had to superglue into place.

Because this is Lando's Falcon, I wanted it to have a clean look. If I left it, the ship would have been too white (think Revell kit white). I took a dark gray and very lightly drybrushed the ship. This way it's not overdone but there's some color to it.

Very cool. Nicely done on the blue lines too. Was curious how you got the pod so your break down of the work is greatly appreciated.

And, yes, the more custom Galoob the better.

Thanks everyone! I like to break down what I did in case anyone else is interested in doing the same.

To follow up, I made a Lando figure for his Falcon. It’s a Han figure from Battle Pack #6 Dune Sea. I attached a Vader cape which was cut in half so he could sit properly.
