This 5.30m wide, 4.80m long, and 4.30m high (17.3ft x 15.7ft x 14.1ft) is a replica of Darth Vader’s Tie Fighter from Star Wars. It weighs 1.4 tons and despite being what most people would consider life-size, it is actually only half the size of Darth Vader’s real Tie.

In total it took 20 people roughly two years (about 1,000 man hours) to build this thing with a total cost of materials of about US$20,000.

Darth Vader model sold separately.
