    Section of the "Death Star" under construction from Star Wars: Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. (TCF, 1983) Vintage original 12.25 x 6 x 6 in. portion of the iconic "Death Star" miniature surface. Built in the ILM model shop and constructed of gray-painted cast resin components and chemically etched delicate brass pieces painted in gray and rust colors. Other areas of the model are made of etched brass and piping glued to the surface to give an "under construction" look. Two instantly recognizable 4.5 in. Turbolaser towers are strategically placed on the set piece. Model sections like these were affixed to the perimeter of the Death Star miniature model surfaces to give forced perspective illusion of mass. This is the first example of its kind that we have encountered. Obtained from a former ILM employee. In vintage very fine condition.
