Laundry List

In my apparent mission to build models of everything that appears in A New Hope, I still have a long long way to go. At the very least, it looks like I've got quite a bit of the ships done. Here's my Got-It-Don't-Got-It-Need-It list...

In rough order of appearance (A word on what I'm considering a ship; any conveyance built as a prop and committed to celluloid, no matter how obscure, that's not a space station.) Don't-Got-It's are in bold text.

1. Rebel Blockade Runner                        Got It (but exterior needs a lot of work)
2. Star Destroyer ("Devastator")               Got It (but exterior needs a looooot of work)
3. Escape Pod                                            Got It!
4. Sand Crawler                                        Got It!
5. Luke's Speeder                                    Got It!
6. Lars Family Speeder                             Got It
7. T-16 Skyhopper                                    Got It
8. Mos Eisley Speeder (Lars with paint)  Got It (technically, just need to repaint the other model)
9. Mos Eisly Wreck next to the cantina   Got It
10. "Ubrikkian" speeder                            Got It
11. Void-Spider TX-3                               Got It
12. Mobquet Speeder                                Got It
13. Millennium Falcon                             Got It
14. TIE Fighter                                         Got It
15. Rebel base troop transport                  Got It
16. X-Wing                                               Got It
17. Y-Wing                                               Got It
18. Vader's TIE                                         Got It

So 15 out of 18... not bad... did I miss anything? (I am not, will never, be counting any ships seen in the "special" editions)


It has been brought to my attention that two are missing. The Dewback and the Jerba are both technically "conveyances built as a props and committed to celluloid, [are] obscure, [and are] not space stations."

... I'm not sure where I stand on this issue, but what it comes down to is that modeling those two "animals" would be a real pain in Sketchup, which is not the best for organic objects. We shall see... either way, I have begun to collect rare photo references of them, so it may just be a matter of time.

what a weekend! Knocked out the Void-Spider, Mobquet Speeder, mostly polished off the Ubrikkian Speeder, and bashed out the Escape Pod.

Just two more to go: Vader's TIE, and Luke's Landspeeder

Lord I've been at this a long time... I've added one more ship and not really cleaned up the remaining details on the other ones. Gotta get to work! Probably have to rebuild a lot considering how much I've learned since 2013...

  1. I think you got all of them listed.
    Will you tackle some other structure of comparison, like the death star turbolaser towers, the exterior of Yavin temple, Mos Eisley city, etc?
    You said no space station but wouldn't it be cool to see the outside of the death star docking bay? ;)
