Full Scale Millennium Falcon Already Built in London

Imagine: you're walking around London and just a few miles away in Pinewood Studios sits a 1:1 Scale Millennium Falcon. 

I know, right? Apparently Yahoo! is claiming that a full-scale Millennium Falcon has been built with a full interior. 

"A full-scale 1:1 Millennium Falcon has been built as well as the interiors of the ship for filming. The Falcon is done - inside and out. The sets were built off-site, ready to move when Lucasfilm/Bad Robot were ready to move into Pinewood."

The Star Wars rumour mill has been churning for years, but it looks like we're finally getting some interesting bits of news following the announcement of fan favourite R2-D2's part in the films. 

Who knows? The Falcon may just become a tourist trap once filming has been wrapped on Episode IX. But you can be damned sure I'll be there.
