Ewok Attack Glider Proof Sheet
Sheets like this are usually identical to what an uncut production box would later look like. Proof sheets are easily recognizable by the color bars running along one of the top or side edges, corner marks-used as a guide to indicate the final size after trimming or cropping, and registration marks-usually in the shape of small crosshairs these marks would serve as a guide for the printing plates to ensure that they were all lined up correctly. Later a sheet like this would be cut along the guides and folded into a production box.

This particular proof sheet is for the Ewok Combat Glider box. The Ewok Combat Glider has become a focus for Zac and this is just one of the marvelous pieces in his Glider collection.

Finally, we have a shot of the series of Ewok Combat Glider pieces that Zac has assembled. These pieces include examples of several stages in the process used to create the vehicle. Shown are some of the original pieces of photoart for the back of the box, a color key, a proof sheet, various box flat samples and proofs, an Engineering Pilot, a production boxed glider, and included in the series, but not pictured, is a first shot.
