This Red 5 is a near perfect replica to the original seen in 1977’s Star Wars – A New Hope. Actual photos were used of the original models taken during the filming of stated movie to produce the fantastic look you see here with this piece. This piece was a real pleasure to photograph. It gave me the “Star Wars” chills! Like the Red Leader that R.L. Bleecker produced for Modeler Magic, this piece will also soon get smoked glass for the canopy when Reds 2, 3, 4 and 6 arrive from artist Marc Elkins.
