Hi guys,

I remember reading that some of the MPC/Etrl x-wing models were used in filming ROTJ as background models. Does anyone have any more info on this and hopefully some pictures of these specific models. To clarify, I'm not looking for X-Wing pics in general, just the MPC/Ertl models that were used during filming.

Thanks.

Any help is greatly apreciated.

Hi Dan

I don't have any photos unfortunately, but I can tell you that at least one MPC/Ertl X-wing was used in Empire too.

I can't tell it apart from the other models used but Special Effects supervisor Brian Johnson told me that himself!

Thanks for the reply. If you come accross any other info please let me know. I've been wanting to build a studio scale x-wing for a while, but taking on the 1:24 version is beyond my budget right now. So I thought I might be able to use my MPC kit to replicate that version of the screen used model. Unfortunately I havn't been able to find any referances for this particular version of the x-wing. But I'll keep on looking.

Well, if they used one in Empire, then my guess is that it's Luke's Red 5 - I can't remember seeing any other X-wings in Empire.

ROTJ could be anybody's guess.

There are lots of x-wings in empire. How about the ones that escorts the rebel transport of Hoth? There is also several during the closing scene with the rebel fleet. I don't know if any of them was the mpc kit. As far as I know the mpc x-wing(s)?? in Jedi was used only for the scene where the fleet is going into hyperspace. The only reference I could find about is this http://www.toysrgus.com/index.php?action=disp_item&item_id=47465
