Having some thoughts on how should the Star Wars HWK-290 Light Freighter look inside, and how much room you can actually expect there, and being a big fan of creating floor plans to the ships we use in our campaigns, I’ve decided to try building a model of the ship, as a proof of concept.
I’ve chosen LEGO bricks for the job, for various reasons. First, and foremost, I like LEGO. It is a lot of fun building from physical bricks, but with the advent of modern computing, you can also design in Lego Digital Designer directly on your PC , having access to all the bricks in a world, be able to tear down and rebuild in the matter of minutes (well, ok, it takes some time to get used to the interface, and some time to get a feeling where all those bricks you need are located, but once you are familiar, it gets much more fun). Second, my daughter likes LEGO, too. And she likes Star Wars. A year and a half ago she got the LEGO 75105 Millennium Falcon set, and it is still one of her favourite doll-houses she plays in, so creating a minifig scale ship of my own design, provided it will be accessible and have all those interactive parts inside, looked like something she might be interested in as well.
