I saw a picture of a Millennium Falcon on the internet years ago and did my own version. I used a replica and attached a neck to it. With the Falcon I even put flashing LED lights in the back. It lights up blue in the dark, it gives it a hyperdrive look. The kids love it. The important thing is you have to make the body very rigid.
