Imperial Landing Craft

 Troop transport, by east_mountain, on flickr


Classic Photography

It’s been a while since I last blogged about SW photography, but I saw this on flickr recently and thought that it was worthy of a mention.  Unless I’m mistaken it’s an unmodified Imperial Landing Craft (7659) which was first released in 2007.  To be honest I wasn’t ever really that impressed by the set itself, mainly because of the design of the wings.  The ship also only makes a brief appearance in one of the Special Editions of Episode IV, which probably accounts for my lack of enthusiasm for it.  However, this photo by east_mountain shows it in literally a different light!  The subtle illumination of the red marker lights and the reflections from the mirrored surface are beautiful, it’s an amazing image.
