I’m not sure whether to applaud this guy’s ingenuity or marvel at his misguided ambition.
I mean, I like Star Wars.
I really like it.
However, this is project that takes a level of commitment that most people just don’t have….for ANYTHING.
Look at the detail on this thing!
Oh did I say commitment?
I meant lots of spare money, extra time and a geek side a parsec wide.
For those looking for a more “realistic” model, there’s also a full scale Space Shuttle available, made FOR you by the same guys that make lots of Hollywood props.
Of course, do-it-yourself has its advantages. While it’ll take your paychecks, your weekends, your lawn and your marriage… it’s a lot cheaper.
The factory-built Space Shuttle is around $3,500,000. (not including tax and delivery)
That’s a bargain compared to the $1,700,000,000 of the real thing.
However, the website implicitly reminds us that these replicas “Do not fly.”
So let the buyer beware.
