I'll say it till the dewbacks come home, Ralph McQuarrie was a concept design genius

Doug Chang, a long time Star Wars art designer, revealed at Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 a sketch that Ralph McQuarrie had done as part of the sketches for the Rebel Base and ships within for A New Hope.

It was apparently a new publically displayed sketch.

Here it is:


And I thought that seems cool and it triggered a memory. I think it eventually became this concept design:

It seems to be some kind of prototype design of the Y-wing?

I also found this early design as well:

I'm sure I've said it before but without McQuarrie's key influence on Star Wars, Lucas would have made a totally different movie!

And that's all I wanted to say.
