The Razer Crest replica cost more than $10,000 to build.
Siberia may feel like a galaxy far far away, but it’s now home to a huge replica of the Razer Crest ship flown by The Mandalorian in the Disney Plus live-action Star Wars show The Mandalorian.
According to reports, fans of the show developed a model of the starship that’s 47 feet long and 13 feet high (14 meters by 4 meters) and weighs more than a ton.
Ayaal Fyodorov, who worked on the ship, told Agence France-Presse that they were very much motivated to make it. As if they were inside the TV series and rebuilding the ship. Fyodrov said that the endeavour cost more than 750,000 rubles which is more than $10,000, more than £7,000 and almost AU$ 12,890 and he sold his car to help pay for it.
The ship is built of plastic foam, metal and fiberboard. While it can’t leave Earth’s orbit, the engines do start and different buttons regulate different lights. As of now, the vessel is grounded in a park in the city of Yakutsk and it is reportedly turning out to be something of a tourist attraction in town.
