    Hey C,

    Have you given any thought to include an area that holds the escape pods?  I think that would be a great feature – and fun to build!  Maybe opposite the loading ramp?

    Great idea! Is there any good reference for them?

    The only reference to the escape pods I’ve seen were shown on the multicolored blueprint (I think by Chris Trevas). They were round, small, and similar to the pods from 2001 ASO. They were simple circular pods tucked into the “pod bay” opposite the loading ramp. I’m sure we could come up with something. They did reference them being jettisoned after take off… : )

    What do you think about getting the community to submit ideas? : ) Great way to get them involved.

    Think I just saw the drawings with the escape pods you mentioned

    There are several drawings of the Falcon (as well as other RPG YT 1300 derrivatives) and a sequence of pictures for escape pod system and procedures which are integrated with the port side docking ring

    I’ve seen those images of the pods but I hadn’t seen any of the other plans – pretty cool!  The jury is still out on whether to even create the pods.  I personally think we should just let our imaginations go wild and have fun with it…  But it’s not up to me…  lol
