    Illuminating detailed model of the Star Wars Death Star made by visual effects model maker Jim Arbaugh. This model was commissioned by a filmmaker who intended to use the model in a live-action short based on the true story of Todd Franklin who found the original Death Star model at an antique store in Missouri. Arbaugh, a former Disney Imagineer, built the model to great detail using various plastics, painted a flat gray, with thousands of pinholes throughout to allow the inner L.E.D. light source to escape. The L.E.D. operates at a cool temperature for durability and plugs into a standard wall outlet. Measures approximately 36 in. in diameter. Makes a fantastic display. In fine condition.
