X-Wing - Blue-1

Originally the Yavin attack force was to be Blue Squadron, but the blue markings created too many problems with the compositing process.  The first X-Wing model to be made was Blue-1, which was painted and sent to London to be used in the building of the full sized prop.  This model represents the original Blue-1, but has been weathered to better match the final look of the filming models.    (BTW: The Blue-1 model was repainted and became the Red-2 Hero Model.  It was on tour with the Star Wars museum exhibit.  The decals and much of the original paint can still be seen)
