“The Last Run” – Composite Art by Kurt Kuhn (Kuhn Global)

“We’re going in….. we’re going in FULL THROTTLE!… That ought to keep those fighters off our backs!” states new Red 5 Rebel Pilot Luke Skywalker to his left-over wingmen… Biggs Darklighter of Red 3, and Wedge Antillies of Red 2. They have real purpose in this fight as being the very last attack run… and last hope of the Rebel Alliance against the newly Empire designed Death Star. Further more on their plate…. aside from a lone Y-wing Bomber still flying in combat above… this trio of pilots are the only left… and the only being pursued! As they quickly lay on the speed Luke had asked for, they banked into the Death Star trench only to find themselves already being chased by Lord Vader himself as he and his wingmen swoop from above into the trench,…. placing them directly on Wedge’s six! Seeing this, Biggs shouts into his COM “Hurry Luke! They’re coming in much faster this time!” Soon they each would experience just how fast that would be.

Using one of my first Blue Screen Photos of the three MSLZ22 Studio Scale V-2 kits by R.L. Bleecker and Richard Long, and using several screen captures, I was able to create this scene. One thing I was attempting was to get this seen to actually “LOOK” like a 1977 reel frame from the movie by placing ‘matte’ lines around each ship. They are subtle, but brought out that classic look of the original ’77 screening I was hoping for.
