Someone had asked about there actually being a gray Snowspeeder in the Empire Strikes Back. Frankly I wasn’t 100% sure either so I loaded up the DVD and took some screen shots. Indeed there is a gray speeder and from what I could tell, the only one I saw flying about was Lukes. Here’s some shots of that and of the 1:1 set pieces:
Here you can see Luke’s speeder in gray and the standard orange model.
Look close and only one is gray. (hint: largest in foreground)
This I found interesting… looks like they used the same model a LOT. Were there more than one model used for the filming?
Here’s a shot of the large set pieces. Man these things were dirty!
And here’s more shots:
