Someone like Micheal Ritter would be a good person to talk to - I’ll direct him to this thread

From a well renowned collector:

Studio drawings I’ve seen are on official formats and have title blocks at the lower right. Need a complete photo and better resolution. Can’t tell if it’s zoomed in and clipped those.

It looks more crude than I’ve seen for this type of thing. It’s like a glorified sketch. Not impossible but doesn’t strike me as studio. Then again, the in-house work done at Elstree could potentially have created such a drawing. Hard to tell the age of the paper but that helps some also.

That looks like a cool find. Can you take a good clear photo straight on directly from above getting it all in? As with anything like this provenance is everything. It might look legit but it doesn't mean its a preproduction/studio/Lucasfilm item. Are there any other notes, marks or writing anywhere on it that can't be seen in this photo? Ideally you need to find out who drew it, when and for what purpose. A tall order after 40 years :wink:
