Death Star miniature surface section panel - Star Wars (1/6)

(TCF, 1977) DEATH STAR SURFACE SECTION MINIATURES. The following miniature panels (Profiles in History – Hollywood Auction 22) were used to add detailing to the Death Star trench and the surface of the special effects model by ILM effects technician Joe Johnston. According to Johnston in the Star Wars Sketchbook, “The bulk of the Death Star models were derived from six modular but very different two-foot-square miniature panels that were molded in high density foam. These pieces could be cut apart and rearranged to form endless variations of surface. The reproduction of these modules in two smaller sizes provided additional shots, seemingly from higher altitudes.” The effects department then dressed the Death Star surface with these sections, and the set piece was then used to film the X-wing and TIE fighter dogfight sequences from the climax of the film. The six different sections are each presented here, mounted on custom plaques with technical drawings of their Death Star use. Each comes from the Kurtz / Joiner Archive, and will come with a letter of authenticity from the Archive signed by Jason Joiner. Estimate $1,500 – $2,000
