This original Death Star surface panel prop was used in the production of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977). During filming the Death Star scenes, a number of panels were created and joined together in order to create a surface in which the X-Wing Fighters and Tie Fighters could fly across. The panels were then painted, distressed 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 and has been sprayed primer gray. Detailing has been added in painted shades of gray and further detail added to give it the distressed appearance necessary to be part 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 remember, that's no Moon, it's a space station!
