Devoted Star Wars fans building a FULL-SIZED Millennium Falcon

Han Solo is cool. But if you can't actually be Harrison Ford or have your own Wookiee pal, you can at least have a life-size replica of his iconic ship, the Millennium Falcon. Or at least Star Wars fan Chris Lee thinks he can, anyway.

A team of devoted fans have taken it upon themselves to build a true replica of the Millennium Falcon, completely accurate inside and out. Ambitious? Heck yeah. And totally worth it.

Here's how project founder Lee described the project:

"This is a quest to build the ultimate Star Wars prop: a 1:1 scale ESB/ANH hybrid Millennium Falcon with complete, correctly scaled interior. Yes, I have completely lost my mind, just like most of my friends and family say. Except for my close Star Wars fan friends, who say 'cool, can I help?'."
If this thing is ever actually finished, here's hoping the team opens it up for tours. Oh, and hang onto that thing until we actually build a hyperdrive engine and can take the old gal for a spin.

You've got to respect those Star Wars fans.

Head over to their official website at FullScaleFalcon.com to follow the process and check out some pics of the project.

What do you think? Are these guys crazy, or crazy awesome?
