Guy Builds Full-Size Star Wars Tie Fighter in his Backyard
If you really put your mind to it, just about anything can be accomplished within the confines of this world. For those who might enjoy replica creations of their favorite movie pieces can now have something to aspire to is Colin Furze, one of the web’s wildest experimenters and creators has figured out a way to build a life-size Star Wars vessel in his backyard. If your nerd senses are tingling, well, there’s a very good reason. Even for someone who doesn’t know all that much about Star Wars, this is definitely something that you could appreciate as it really shows what a little bit of elbow grease and a creative thought can accomplish.
Even without being all that entranced by the story behind Star Wars, there is certainly a lot to appreciate here as you can tell that even at a quick glance, you can see that this one really took some work. Colin really outdid himself here, going beyond to create the replica machine, all with the help of a small toy that inspired every design queue within the final creation. When it’s all said and done, this thing is a massive non-functioning but still cool look at piece that needs to be seen to believe. In order to have a vision like this actually executed is incredibly rare with just about any sort of creation like this one.
If you follow down in the video below, you’ll be able to see the Tie Fighter for yourself in all its glory, showing off all of the design cues that Furze has come up with in his very own backyard. If you were to look at something like this, I think most people would think that it’s something that was created by a big team or maybe even a piece that should be in a museum somewhere and when you get to hear the backstory about it, the creation is even more amazing!
