    Description

    X-Wing Fighter and TIE Fighter miniatures crafted from the original molds and built by Grant McCune who created the original miniatures for Star Wars. (TCF, 1977) These model miniatures come directly from the collection of Grant McCune, Chief Model Maker on the Miniature and Optical Effects Unit on Star Wars, who won, with his team, an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects on the film. Measuring 22 in. long x 18 in. wide, the X-Wing is constructed of resin, polystyrene and brass, painted to detail with red accents and intentional battle distress. The X-Wing is accompanied by its worthy adversary in the form of a Galactic Empire TIE Fighter with its iconic ball cockpit and side solar panels. Measuring 14 x 14 x 17 in. Both miniatures are expertly finished and detailed in the best tradition of Hollywood modelmaking. Following Star Wars, McCune's shop built this X-Wing and TIE Fighter and housed the pairing in a custom acrylic display with fiber optics star field background for exhibit in the waiting room of McCune Design (formerly Apogee, Inc., the visual effects company formed by John Dykstra, Grant McCune and other former ILM employees). Comes with both display case as well as separate display stands. Portside cannon is loose on TIE Fighter; otherwise, both remain in fine condition. Iconic Star Wars miniatures direct from the collection of its Chief Model Maker. Provenance: The collection of Grant McCune.
