Archive Id SW-DS3-19


This is a genuine Death Star miniature surface panel piece used in the production of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977). For the filming of the Death Star scenes many such surface panels were created and joined together, and this piece in particular has a piece of reflective tape near the bottom which would have appeared as a window during these iconic scenes. The panels were then painted and detailed to an exceptionally high standard by ILM model makers.

The Death Star panel segment consists of a cast resin shell filled with rigid polyfoam. The piece was sprayed primer gray with detailing added in painted shades of gray, with the piece of reflective tape added as a finishing touch. The piece has been expertly painted and distressed to appear as a segment of the exterior of the Death Star.

This rare piece of Star Wars history comes presented in an elegant, black hinged framed display which features an official Star Wars photo and patch with laser engraved text describing the piece. The frame itself features a metal latch on the side, making it easy to open so that you can remove the Death Star panel at your leisure. But don’t be too proud of this technological terror we've constructed, the ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.
