The radar dish (JUST the dish without the mount) of the Millennium Falcon model is actually made from 122 parts. All of these little lines on the inside of the dish were cut out from strips of styrene and then glued onto the dish. The center cone is the command module cover from the Airfix 1:144th scale Saturn V rocket and the dish itself is the display stand from the ERTL/MPC Darth Vader TIE Fighter.
Another complex piece on the Millennium Falcon model is the upper cannon. It is made from about 90 parts.
(I know there is another cannon on the bottom, but I never built it. But I will. Someday, maybe... :-) )

After all the parts were finally glued together, I CAREFULLY !  burned/melted some laser blasts into the fuselage with a soldering iron.
