This Star Wars themed build comes from Corey Gregory of Australia, who seems as gifted with case-modding as Luke is with the Force. I imagine Yoda as a message board and shop class hybrid creature, like a table saw with strong opinions.
Despite its industrial, utilitarian design, the Tie P5 Advanced has some fairly green origins; it was inspired by a mountable plant manger. Gregory was out looking for green buddies with his fiance, when he noticed the manger’s quartered metal sphere could be cut and combined into a complete sphere. Spheres, music of the spheres, stars, Star Wars—it all checks out. After plenty of welding, drilling, plaster, and detail work, the Tie P5 Advanced looks like the real deal—call up mister G. Lucas circa 1977 and let him know!
Gregory has yet to fill the Tie P5’s liquid reservoirs, but the final physical product is stunning. It’s a gorgeous homage to the the Tie Fighter design that doesn't sacrifice style for function. All the components fit in there just fine, and they’re pretty powerful too.
