When it comes to zany, off-the-wall projects that actually work, it takes a lot for Colin Furze to outdo himself—yet, the ingenious (and ballsy) garage inventor from Stamford Lincolnshire in the UK may have finally done it.
In celebration of the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi this week, Furze partnered with eBay to build a full-sized (yes, full) Tie Fighter using only parts sourced from the auction marketplace. Furze teamed up with eBay last year to create a full-scale AT-ACT using parts similarly sourced only from eBay. The resulting aircraft is 46 ft x 23 ft x 14ft with a full steel construction.
This being classic Furze, he’s also uploaded a ‘making of’ video for those interested to see how the giant contraption came to be.
Still no word on how quickly this thing flies—but we’ll take it as is. Be sure to check out the rest of Furze’s insane inventions over on his YouTube channel.
