Time is crucial for the Rebels on the moon of Yavin as the Death Star clears the planet to destroy them. Nearly the entire fighting force the Rebels have sent now destroyed, their last hope of survival remains on these three pilots… Luke, Biggs and Wedge.
Here you see Biggs’s RED 3 in the center with Luke flying on his upper starboard side in RED 5, with Wedge a bit further, and higher away to Biggs’s port side flying RED 2…. getting ready for their last trench run to destroy the massive Death Star!
“We’re going in… we’re going in full throttle! That ought to keep those fighters off our backs!”… Luke Skywalker
All three studio scale X-Wing models were from various Mike Salzo patterns and are very close to exact replicas of the A New Hope studio models used in filming.
