Behind the Mask: Built Slave I
Based on early drawings by Nilo Rodis-Jamero, Peterson built the Slave I model. He also built the Death Star and the Millennium Falcon.
In his 2006 book, "Sculpting A Galaxy - Inside the Star Wars Model Shop," Peterson says the Slave I is based on the design of a street lamp. (However, according to Nilo Rodis-Jamero says the inspiration was a radar dish after talking with Joe Johnston: "I remember seeing a radar dish and stopping to sketch it very quickly to see if I could get something out of it.")
Peterson was also interviewed about his role in Star Wars Insider #145, where he said his favorite model was Slave I.
Peterson also worked on Slave I with Ease Owyeung.
