A team of German engineers have taken on the rather incredible task of building Darth Vader’s TIE fighter in full-scale. Wait, that’s half-scale? How big is the thing?
It’s called Project X1, and took about 1,000 man hours and $20,000 to build, This is opposed to the 100,000 man hours and $100 billion it would take to make it life-size and able to fly and shoot lasers.
You can check our more shots of the project below, along with a video to really get a sense of scale for the thing.
