The Derelict

Little known fact: the jawa sandcrawlers were equipped with special tools to repair exotic propulsion systems occasionally found in the desert, such as the Koensayr R200 Ion Jet engines from a derelict Y-wing fighter. Trading droids was peanuts compared to the engine business.


I found the Y-wing deteriorated like this in the kid's Lego pile. I only added some of the missing greeblies on the top of the hull and left everything else as it was, so, in a sense, the "derelict" is authentic.

    Love the left part with the flying sand, hair dryer ? Too bad you can't blow the whole set... and spend your day cleaning up (for the love of art) ^ ^
    The tones are always so fantastic, I guess you edited a bit the eyes ?

    I feel sorry for whatever happened to the pilot. Probably had an untimely encounter with a Krayt Dragon or some anoobas.

    Shobrick Nick Roth No hairdryer, just me. I did blow on the whole set, but it did not look that good, I preferred to blur the horizon and the crawler only with the blowing sand to add some aerial perspective. This was shot outdoors in natural sunlight, no cleaning required. The eyes were indeed enhanced a bit by punching holes in a PS layer mask.
    Willis Reifsnyder No one was hurt. :D
