Star Destroyer DEVASTATOR Studio Model

This is the model that changed everything for me…. and most likely the way special effects were done from them on. In 1977’s Star Wars, it crawled overhead (taking forever with it’s mass) chasing after a much smaller ship. Little did we all know back then that the model of this famed scene was only 3 feet long!

Here are some photos of the Star Destroyer DEVASTATOR Studio Model.

Some of these photos were taken in the Lucasfilm archives while most were done at the Star Wars Expo. Many of these beautiful photos were taken by, and acquired from, Forbidden Plastic Models. They had posted them on their site which you can access by their link below. Thank you Forbidden Plastic for these most excellent photos!
