Papercraft Millenium Falcon Took Four Years to Build: Kessel Crawl
Starship Modeler reader Bernard Szukiel spent a total of four years perfecting the details on his 38″ Millenium Falcon scale model, and the result speaks for itself. The entire ship is made of paper, except for the optical fiber and LEDs that light up the cockpit and gunner’s station.

LEGO Interstellar Model Looks Fantastic

LEGO Interstellar Model Looks Fantastic
I never got around to seeing Interstellar when it was in theaters. The main reason I didn’t go see it was that some of the previews made it look terrible while some made it look cool.

LEGO Halo Pillar of Autumn Model is 7-feet Long
We love us some LEGO around here and this is one of the coolest spaceships we’ve seen built from those little plastic blocks. The gigantic 7-foot long model of the Pillar of Autumn from Halo weighs in at 200 pounds and took the dude who built it three years to complete.

Dad Builds Tiny but Interactive NASA Spaceship, Skyrockets in Dad Rankings
Earlier this year, we looked at a mission control desk that Jeff Highsmith made for his older son. But what’s a mission control center without a spaceship to manage? So a few months later, Jeff set out to build a small spaceship in his younger son’s bedroom.

QMx Shows off Movie quality Gigantic Serenity Ship Replica
I liked Firefly when it was on the air, but I wasn’t a rabid fan like some people. If you find yourself in the latter category, check out this gigantic Serenity replica from QMx. This is the biggest Serenity replica it has made so far at 1:124 scale.

LEGO Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer Is Also a Stud Destroyer

LEGO Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer Is Also a Stud Destroyer
LEGO already has an official Star Wars Imperial Destroyer kit. But Flickr member Jerac’s take is so much better. Partly because it’s huge but mostly because, as The Brothers Brick said, it has “a super smooth design that hardly looks like a LEGO creation.”

SpaceX Dragon V2 Reusable Spacecraft: Daenerys Would Be Impressed

SpaceX Dragon V2 Reusable Spacecraft: Daenerys Would Be Impressed
Private manufacturer SpaceX recently unveiled the updated version of its Dragon spacecraft. The Dragon V2 has a number of improvements, but the company is particularly proud of its ability to “land anywhere on Earth with the accuracy of a helicopter”, thanks to its SuperDraco engines.

3D Printed FTL: Faster Than Light Kestrel Model: Rebel Piñata

3D Printed FTL: Faster Than Light Kestrel Model: Rebel Piñata
Ah, the Kestrel. The red shirt of spaceships. Its crew has two equally horrifying nightmares: one is a looping animation of the ship being torn apart, and the other is a cursor hovering over “Restart.” Let us remember the fallen – and make a note to level up the damned doors on the next run – with this 3D printed model of FTL: Faster Than Light‘s default cruiser.

This Victorian House Has a Spaceship in the Attic
If you are in the market for a new home, you might as well buy one that’s a little different from the rest – perhaps one that has a spaceship in the attic.

7 Foot-long Halo Ship Made out of LEGO

7 Foot-long Halo Ship Made out of LEGO
Some of the LEGO creations that we see just blow my mind. I can’t wrap my head around the many hours of planning and building that it takes to make some of these structures, like this massive build.

1:2256 Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer: a Direct Assault on Your Eyes

1:2256 Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer: a Direct Assault on Your Eyes
I’m pretty sure that White Tiger’s huge star destroyer will be a sight to behold when it’s finished, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s not as polished as this 1:2,256 scale model of the Imperial II star destroyer by model kit builder Cho Jin Hae aka Darth Maul.

Virgin Galactic SpaceShip Two Test Flight Hits Mach 1.43

Virgin Galactic SpaceShip Two Test Flight Hits Mach 1.43
We’ve been suckers for space travel around here for a long time. My secret goal is to one day make enough money to afford a ticket aboard Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShip Two. Unfortunately, tickets for suborbital flights are insanely expensive, but it would be so cool to take one of those flights.

Qmx Reveals Star Trek into Darkness U.S.S. Vengeance Replica
Holy Wrath of Khan, this is an amazingly detailed ship! QMx has created a replica of the U.S.S. Vengeance in honor of the 2013 blockbuster Star Trek Into Darkness. This Dreadnought is a 1:1600 scale model and the largest replica starship by QMx to date.

3D Spaceship Cookie Cutters: Houston, We Have a Pastry

3D Spaceship Cookie Cutters: Houston, We Have a Pastry
After the dinosaurs came the astronauts and their spaceships. At least that’s the sequence of events I recall from my history lessons in grade school. And thus the same sequence of events is playing itself out in the world of 3-dimensional cookie cutting.
