The Red 5 X-Wing was Luke Skywalker's starfighter, the very X-Wing that destroyed the Death Star.
The Original Red 5 filming model was incredibly painted, with lots of panels of different colors that somehow work together.
It has been very difficult for me to try to imitate the color tones of each of these panels, as the very few pictures that exist from this models are lighted very differently, what sometimes hides or strengthens the color of a certain panel and the weathering and battle damage details.
The weathering is very detailed but there is very little info on one of the sides of the fuselage so you are forced to improvise, what is a lot of fun.
The Red 5 model was a "hero model" this is, a model that was painted in detail and had more features as it was meant to be filmed closely, all the opposite of a "Pyro Model", a model meant to be blown apart for battle scenes.
Red 5 had a motorized aluminum armature that allowed the special effects technicians to open and close the wings if the takes required it.
