Items for auction on display

STAR ITEM - ILM Y-wing Model Miniature from STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE JEDI (1983) £100,000 – 200,000

A Y-wing model miniature from Richard Marquand's Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Y-wing miniatures were used during the filming of the battle above the moon of Endor, as the Rebel fleet sought to destroy the second Death Star.

Made by the team at Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), this particular model was crafted for use in the film’s visual effects sequences and was rigged with lights in the nacelles to simulate the appearance of burning ion jet engines. The model was mounted on a rod for use in the extensive motion-controlled filming sequences the film required.

The Y-wing is made of resin, with an array of metal and plastic detailing components running across the fuselage. An astromech droid is situated to the rear of the fighter’s canopy. Many of the components attached to the body of the starfighter are acquired from other model kits, with model engine blocks, radiators, traffic lights and street lights used to imply detail across the surface. Lightbulbs for illumination are situated at the rear of the nacelles, and contact posts for electrical wires are present on the top of the fuselage, but the bulbs no longer function. A panel at the rear of the fighter is removable, revealing a motion-control mounting point within.

The model features an elaborate painted finish, giving the fighter a battle-scarred look that was a staple of ILM's models throughout the original Star Wars trilogy. The model displays intentional production distressing, with laser fire and smoke damage applied throughout.

As part of the upgrade, the helmet was crafted from injection-moulded plastic, making it more comfortable than the previous fibreglass design. However, when the helmets arrived after manufacture, the plastic was found to have shrunk, making them too small for wear. Not to let them go to waste, some were turned over to the special effects department.
