I've been wanting to give a go at a studio scale model but wanted to do something that has not been done before. I really have always loved the original star tours so I decided to give a go at the yellow tanker at the end that you almost crash into before hitting the brakes. I tried to find as much resources as possible but unfortunately no pictures of this, to my knowledge, exist. So I watched about 20 different HD recordings on youtube, including a pre production video, and took screen grabs from them.
So judging by the size of the set piece and the studio model of the starspeeder, this tank needs to fit into the 1:24 scale range. I was thinking that it could possibly be a train model that was slapped with greeblies and painted up but I am not too familiar with trains. It could also be a spuced up tanker truck kit possibly, considering the scale, but all of my hours of searching have yeilded nothing. The production filming took place after ROTJ and before 1987 so that opens up the possibility for a lot of kits that haven't been ID'd yet, of course . You guys are the masters of studio scale modeling and I appriciate any help, thanks.
