Down the Tubes: Watch Adam Savage Geek Out Over Original ‘Star Wars’ X-Wing Model

Down the Tubes is a (semi) regular feature where we, the SAW staff, share our favorite movie-related videos with the Wasteland. 

Please share your video recommendations with us at or on Twitter @SAWasteland.

Well, after making you watch more Star Wars fan films than any person should be expected to watch, I figured we’d end Star Wars Month on a fun note. You’ll enjoy this if you are a big fan of the original trilogy, of model making and practical effects, or just film history. The fact that this stuff is still out there and being discovered 45 years later is wild. It’s also sort of touching in light of the fact that Colin Cantwell, the man responsible for the design of the X-Wing, passed away a little over a week ago.

What did you think about the video? Did you know Savage worked on the Prequels? What do you think about the X-Wing model? Let us know in the comments below!
