A couple of days ago, I came across an excellent article on Gizmodo which highlighted a group of people that built a 21 foot long model of an X-Wing. The model was built out of Baltic Wood, and contained solid aluminum for some parts of the aircraft. The model was also outfitted with four class M rockets which would provide the red flare type of glow that is seen on the X-Wing’s engines during the movie Star Wars.
Alas, here is the video of this model trying to fly and as you can see, the force was not with them.
