Awesome Half-Scale Darth Vader TIE Fighter
This half-scale model of Darth Vader’s TIE Fighter will be unveiled during this week’s Star Wars Celebration Europe. It was built by Michael Schramm and the team at Project X1 and required over 1,000 man hours and $20,000 to build. The 1.4 ton model consists of a wooden structure over a steel and aluminum frame. The video below (in German) is an interview with Herr Schramm and some of the other members of the team.
