Even at a small size the shape of this ship is hard to miss. Probably the most recognizable ship by shape in science fiction the Millennium Falcon.

The Millennium Falcon was a Corellian YT-1300 light freighter used by the smugglers Han Solo and Chewbacca during the Galactic Civil War. It was previously owned by Lando Calrissian, who lost it to Solo in a game of sabacc.

Its aged appearance belied numerous advanced modifications to boost the ship’s speed, weapons and shield, including sensor-proof smuggling compartments, which were used during the rescue of Princess Leia Organa to evade Imperial stormtroopers. Afterwards, the Millennium Falcon saw further action when Solo chose to join the Rebels during the Battle of Yavin, where it was able to sneak up on Darth Vader’s TIE Advanced. [SOURCE]
