Long-lost ‘Star Wars’ X-Wing model from original movie up for auction
(CNN) – One “Star Wars” fan could own a rare piece of movie history, but it’s going to cost them.
A long-lost model of an X-Wing fighter used in 1977′s “Star Wars” is up for auction.
The starting price is $400,000.
The model was used in close-ups during the final battle scene where the rebel alliance fought the empire above the Death Star.
Heritage Auctions said the model is part of a collection that belonged to the late Greg Jein, an award-nominated miniature maker.
Jein was also known for his work on “Star Trek” and “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.”
The model will be auctioned on October 14 and 15.
