ILM CLASSIC IMAGE: JOE JOHNSTON'S FALCON
Here's some intriguing Joe Johnson sketches from September 1978 of the Millennium Falcon interior, and showing where everything was in relation to one another, when the vessel was to be re-built in 1979 on the ELSTREE Studios sound stages in London for the upcoming THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.
A very nice piece of design history...
UPDATE 7/2013: The recent J.W. Rinzler STAR WARS: BLUEPRINTS book revealed that these pieces were for a planned but cancelled merchandise project (likely an early cross-section type book/portfolio linked to the original STAR WARS).
