Simply sublime. The inimitable Peter Cushing: a true screen legend.
DANIEL CRAIG - James Bond
The AT-ST, or Scout Walker as featured in 'Return of the Jedi'.
The AT-STs are an absolute cinematic triumph. The design is terrific. It looks both mean and fully practical. The visual effects work under Dennis Muren's supervision is exceptional. The models, lighting, optical compositing and of course the animation - courtesy of Phil Tippet - is second to none. The sound effects are exceptional too!
This is a painting of a 'what if' box art for an Airfix Dogfight-Double of a Star Wars X-Wing and Tie Fighter model kit. Dogfight Doubles were a range that I remember fondly from the early 1970s, and featured a pairing up of two existing kits, that would have been in close combat. For example, a Spitfire and Messerschmitt in the Battle of Britain, or a two WWi bi-planes. As with all Airfix box art of the day - typically by the excellent Roy Cross - the illustration showed exciting conflict with plenty of gunfire and explosion action.
This painting represents a fictitious box of the famous Star Wars fighters.
The box styling and lettering is identical to that of the kit boxes of the day (circa 1972) - the title would represent a key colour featured in the artwork and the Airfix logo itself would adopt two colours key to the subject matter.
