HOWTO Make an office-supply X-Wing Fighter

Spookylean on Instructables has designed a remarkable and delightful X-Wing fighter made from office supplies: "You can also use one of the discarded large binder bodies as a display stand."

X-Wing Fighter from Office Supplies (via Make)


  1. We like so much these plane. But when it go into production? And can be strapped to each foot right? Can we buy two please.

    1. how retro.

      Not in my industry. (The entertainment one.) Every TV show and motion picture from the depths of the last century all the way up to next week binds its scripts with two (never three) Solid Brass Fasteners just like these. Even in largely paperless productions that utilize a Virtual Production Office, and distribute memos, schedules, scripts and revisions electronically as .pdf files, they have yet to eliminate the actual paper script for key production personnel, actors, directors, and especially script supervisors. My office uses these things more than actual staples.

  2. serious?

    even i can work that out and i am baked.

    right, we have there a:

    Sharpe marker used as the main body of the X wing

    Pencil Sharpener cockpit

    2 x bulldog clips as the wings and base

    4 x biro lids for the engines

    4 x crocodile clips for the lazers on the ends of the wings

    think thats all folks

  3. What’s the purple part on top, and what is the base made out of? I can identify everything else.
