An Empire Online spy wandering through London's Barbican Centre today spotted this unusual sight in the centre's main hall - the first installment of the upcoming Art of Star Wars exhibition - a Naboo Starfighter. nabooThe one ton spaceship is the original model from Episode 1: The Phantom Menace and was made here in Blighty for the film. At over 30 feet long and 28 feet wide it's one of the exhibition's bigger installations, but will be rivalled by the arrival in the next few weeks of a full-size version of Anakin's podracer.
