    Wasn't sure where to put this post so I will start here.

    In commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the Star Wars franchise a rocketeer named Andy Woerner, with the help of his rocketry club members, has built a 21 foot long replica of the X-Wing Fighter that will actually fly on four rocket motors in the scale engine locations.

    Click the link below to see how they built it and what the finished product looks like. It's big enough a child could fly in it.

    A 1/4 scale flying model of the Y-Wing fighter will be launched there, also.

    If you to see it fly on October 6, 2007 you need to attend the rocket launch called Plaster Blaster IV located near Plaster City, CA. The Plaster Blaster website can be found at

    P.S. May the Schwartz be with you all...always.
