    Although the specific shot was probably staged for the documentary, in The Making of Star Wars they show Vader's TIE being mounted on stage using the rear mount. FWIW.
    Oh yes, at 41:05 in the 1977 documentary here. Good spot.

    Assuming TIE/TIE Interceptor/X-1 might have same bottom cap. Do you know parts ID or where it comes from?

    My understanding is that the cockpit of the TIE and the TIE X-1 are the same but I would defer to other experts on the forum for a definitive answer. I do have the Chronicles book so I’ll take a closer look. I can see a Panzer hatch or two in there...

    The mount cover in that picture is used not once but *twice* on the front of the Blockade Runner.

    I wonder what the dodecagon (12 sided) shape could be. I see part D12 from the 8 Rad on the top of it. Maybe the gun base from the 88mm reduced in height?

    I have no idea, sorry. I do suspect it's a kit part as it looks to be complex. I'd love to know what it is!

    Looks like part of the turret of a tank...

    I thought Tamiya M551 Sheridan. It's similar - but its 10 sided not 12 sided.

    Anyone got a 1/48 Bandai FA-200 Aero Subaru to loan/sell/swap. The rear cover is a pain on this kit as its not a great moulding nor will paint stick to it.
