The Force must be strong with these geeks. (It would have to be.) This is an actual, working Star Wars X-Wing, built by the San Diego Tripoli Rocket Association. Of course, in this context "actual" means it exists and "working" means it's able to get off the ground. At 23 feet long, it's impressive but not the kind of craft you'd want to take into battle against a Death Star. Sure, the R2-D2 beeps, but the laser cannons don't work.

Cool.

That's very cool, but I take issue with midichlorians in the original article.

Mentions of midichlorians (vile things) have no place in an article about OT geeks building X-Wings. [Grumble]
