'STAR WARS' AT 40: Y IS FOR Y-WING!


Dennis Muren readies one of the Y-wing models for blue screen filming at ILM sometime in late 1976. The colour scheme for these craft was originally red but later changed to yellow, presumably when the Blue flight of X-wings changed colour designation to Red by the Summer of 1976. It was a change to the Y-wings anticipated with time by the UK crew, however, as the one-off partially built full size prop at Shepperton Studios would have the replacement yellow colour.

An early Y-wing with the red covering.
