Star Wars fans will *love* these photos. Here are 140 behind-the-scenes photos of the team at ILM building all the various ships, cruisers and vehicles in the original Star Wars film. They’re using a technique called kitbashing, which means the models you’re about to see are built from the parts of other off-the-shelf models ranging from planes, trains, cars, tanks, boats, etc. If you look closely at some of these, you will see recognizable parts of submarines and tank turrets. Part of me wishes that we used less CG in movies today, and went back to the roots!
