The modules in this set are the "high altitude" square tiles in the medium altitude configuration. Each square was approximately 3" x 3". There were 14 different high altitude square tiles made and were molded in 2 sets, the first with tiles referred to as 1-6 and the second set 7-14.They were then cut up into many different variations, some with all 6 or 8 modules, all the way down to individual squares. They were then laid out on the sound stage floor to film the exciting dogfights over the Death Star. In some scenes, different sizes were used to give the surface more depth and detail. The EFX modules were cast from a set of original modules along with some original model parts to recreate the most accurate replicas of these iconic tiles.
Steve Gawley, one of several ILM model makers to work on the modules, is shown setting up the Death Star surface set. Based on Joe Johnstons 3:4 view concept sketches, Steve attached the plan (top views) for the model shop to build from. Images of planets are courtesy of NASA and STScI Hubble telescope website.
