X Wings against the empire

0.00
sold out

Luke Skywalker's Xwing fighter, as part of a rebel formation, engages the massive Death Star beyond the orbit of Yavin to prevent the destruction of their hidden base. There has been a lot of speculation as to the original inspiration for the fighter attack via the defended trench on the DeathStar, many believe it was the 633 Squadron Mosquito attack through a Norwegian Fjord. 

The original was painted and sold in the 1980's as part of my first set of space based paintings. This image was never proofed for prints and, given the copyright permissions required from Lucasfilm, probably just as well !

SOLD

The original image file is low quality - the painting is sharp and detailed.
