X-wing and TIE fighter starships are ready to join a fleet of Star Wars spacecraft already docked at the new Galaxy's Edge themed land under construction at Disneyland.

Disneyland plans to install a $250,000 X-wing and $250,000 TIE fighter at the new Star Wars land scheduled to debut in June, according to Anaheim building permits.

The building permits mention Jon Richards Co., which runs a 42,000-square-foot scenic design shop in Mira Loma and a second location in Orlando, Fla. Jon Richards Co. has worked on scenic elements for Cars Land and Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure as well as Toontown at Disneyland.

A massive 1/24th scale model of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge unveiled at the D23 Expo in 2017 showed X-wings and TIE fighters scattered throughout the 14-acred themed land.

The D23 model included a battle-scarred X-wing with a light blue pinstripe near the Rise of the Resistance trackless dark ride. A second X-wing was painted in the distinctive black and orange design of the starship used by Resistance commander Poe Dameron, introduced in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

A photo released during a Star Wars: Galactic Nights panel in 2017 showed a warehouse filled with a fleet of four unpainted X-wings headed to Disneyland and Disney's Hollywood Studios, where a nearly-identical Galaxy's Edge is scheduled to open in late fall.

The D23 Model also included a black and grey TIE fighter docked at the edge of a remote village outpost popular with bounty hunters, smugglers and rogue adventurers.

The new themed lands will be set in the Black Spire Outpost on the planet of Batuu, located on the outer rim of the Star Wars galaxy.

The X-wings and TIE fighters join a growing star fleet already taking shape at Disneyland.
