A group of passionate Star Wars cosplay fans from Russia have built a life-sized replica of the Razor Crest, in the Siberian city of Yakutsk, where other fans can come and visit this realistic spaceship copy, first of its kind, which is already becoming a popular attraction amongst locals.
It started as a project between cosplayer Ayaall Fyodorov and his friends during the pandemic lockdown. The futuristic spaceship is over 46-feet long and weighs more than one ton. In a quote obtained by the Moscow Time, Fyodorov said, “Our Instagram followers helped us. When we called for assistance, they helped us raise the needed funds. The Yakutsk IT park, a [local] private company, helped us rent a hangar, the only place where the structure could fit.”
The replica is so well built, it includes even the smallest of details, for example a seat designed to specifically fit Baby Yoda. Speaking about the cost of this incredible replica, Fyodorov claimed that the model cost roughly $10,200 and that he even sold his car to make this dream project become a reality.
