Since we are all fans of the SW ships here I thought I would share.
[FONT=Verdana]Recently we planned a family trip to the children's museum in Indianapolis to see the King Tut exhibit. What I wasn't expecting to see was a Star Wars Clone Wars exhibit that was also there. The showing was not overly impressive compared to other SW exhibits with props and costumes and such, but I suppose that is to be expected considering that it is a cartoon after all. [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]What was very cool though was Obi-Wan Kenobi's starfighter prop from Episode II that was on display. It was showing a bit of wear & tear and it was getting pretty dusty sitting where it was but it was pretty neat to see it in person.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]I stood there leaning against the railing just taking it in and letting my mind wander a bit to the point of it being kind of surreal. Probably mostly because it was a full-size prop and not a smaller model. I found myself feeling the same way when I saw the full-size landspeeder prop a couple years ago.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]I have been to several of the touring SW prop shows and I don't know what it is about the ships and vehicles. Items like the costumes and lightsabers are neat to see, but I can look and stare at the ships for hours.[/FONT]
