X-Wing Fighter filming miniature from Star Wars

Original production X-Wing Fighter filming miniature from Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.(TCF, 1977) This amazing piece comes from credited Star Warsmodel builder David M. Jones. The ship measures 21 ¾ in. long x 17 in. wide and is constructed of resin, polystyrene and brass. During the climactic Rebel assault on the Death Star, the production crew needed to build pyrotechnic filming miniatures for the numerous explosions needed for both X-Wing and Y-Wing craft as they were being picked off by the Imperial T.I.E. Fighters and laser cannons interspersed throughout the trench. At the time these sequences were being shot, the crew quickly realized they needed to create more ships as editorial kept requesting more explosions. Due to the extreme time constraints, when a model was blown up surviving components were reused and combined with new parts. This X-Wing Fighter is production built with numerous screen-used parts, including the four brass wingtip laser pods with booms and at least three of the four engine/wing assemblies are reused “pyro” components. Excessively rare, never before has a production X-Wing miniature ever reached the auction block. This represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire such a rare and iconic piece of Star Warshistory. Comes with custom display stand and base and accompanied with a signed letter of authenticity from David M. Jones
