Star Wars X-Wing Book Sculpture

Commissioned project. My client was wonderful and sent me a book to use. It was a collection of three Star Wars books in one. The ship ended up being a bit larger than I originally planned, so it was nice to have that thicker book to offset the ship and provide a little it more stability. And, if he ever gets tired of having the book laying on a shelf, the ship looked really cool by itself. He could always snip the wires and hang it over his bookshelf.

The ship is attached in five places to the book with wire. The wings are wired through the body of the book, which has a cardboard core to hold its shape. The laser cannons are also wired.

This piece is taken, but commissions are open. Contact me on DA or at for info or visit my shop:

You cut pages from a STAR WARS book?! 
But at least the X-Wing is awesome! :)

We restored and upgraded the 3/4 scale X-Wing located at the Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum in Denver, and we continue to maintain it for the museum and for Lucasfilm. [link]

That is awesome. If I ever make my way to Denver I'll be sure to make a stop.
This is awesome.

<pedantic>What you have called "torpedoes" are actually called "laser cannons". The torpedo launchers are a part of fuselage (one port, one starboard).</pedantic>

Both these Star Wars sculptures look amazing! They're both so detailed.

Thank you so much! To my husband's dismay, I have never seen a Star Wars movie in my life, so these were something new for me!
