These Exploding Star Wars Ships Were Shot with Cotton and LEDs


Star Wars enthusiast @plasticstarwars shot a series of photos showing starfighters from the fictional universe at the moment of their destruction. Everything was done in-camera.

“They are just Bandai model kits lit up with LEDs hidden in cotton wool,” @plasticstarwars tells PetaPixel. “I also used fiber optics to simulate sparks.”
