A TIE fighter has been sold on the website Craigslist, it had one careful owner and it was not Mr D Vader! The eight foot square model is around a third of the scale of what we would imagine a real TIE Fighter to look like. It is made from plywood and breaks down into five handy pieces making transportation easier.
These are the details for the interesting TIE Fighter scale model;
Approximately 1/3 scale TIE Fighter. 8 x 8 x 8 feet but breaks down into 5 pieces for easy transport in a pickup or can haul partially assembled (except for the top half of the wings) on a trailer. Wheeled casters make it easy to move once assembled. Laser cannons are set to fire standard party poppers. Well built out of 3/4 plywood with the wings sheeted in cardboard. Tested to hold over 300 pounds. Cockpit is 38 inches by 38 inches and my 5ft tall son comfortably sits inside.
Price was £95 ($150) but the TIE fighter has now been sold
