Life-size replica of Tie Fighter Spacecraft by Star wars fans is a masterpiece

Another amazing masterpiece by Star Wars passionate fans has come into limelight. A life-size model of the ‘Tie Fighter’ spacecraft has been created by a team of German Star Wars admirers. The 1:2 scale replica of Tie Fighter has been crafted using plastic, wood and steel which took almost 2 years for completion. The Darth Vader’s Tie fighter was publicized in Eichenzell, Germany and has become a hot topic of discussion among Star wars fan since then.

This DIY model was the brain child of Michael Schramm and his German friends hailing from different professions. The model measures 5.3 meters in width, 4.80 meters in length and 4.30 meters in height and is quite hefty with 1.4 tonnes of weight. The replica is equally expensive with estimated $18,500 investment. Imagine how much it would have cost without generous sponsors who took care of the wood and plastic.

The German team says that their passion for Star wars was the sheer motivation behind this amazing creation and they dedicated it to Star Wars maker George Lucas. The team is looking forward to exhibit the masterpiece at ‘Star Wars Celebration Europe’ event to be held in Messe Essen, Germany on 26th July.
