Flickr beadmaster Doctor Octoroc has created these incredible 3D models of Star Wars spaceships (and some cool cars and gadgets) using thousands of tiny beads glued together. The X-Wing fighter above is made from 22,000 beads mounted on a wooden dowel and some foam core for support. The whole thing is about 2 foot square by 1 foot tall and weighs about 8 pounds! That’s a lot of beads. Here’s an AT-ST:
