Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) did create some magic of craftsmanship back in the day when the ‘good’ Star Wars movies were being released. The model building process and the superb end-results are pictorially captured in around 140 photographs dating from the years of 1977 to 1983. And interestingly enough, the small-scale Star Wars-model also show the crucial influence of lighting when capturing special effects, given how the perfect scope and angle of illumination can gloriously transform a mere plastic contrivance into a realistic space war-machine.

In case you are wondering, the Industrial Light & Magic studio was acquired by Disney in 2012, when the mega cartoon-making corporation took over the whole of Lucasfilm. As for the entire photo set, do take a gander at this Imgur Gallery.
