And for those who want to replicate his feat of derring-do, he has provided a step-by-step guide to show how he built his vehicle (which took him 25 hours) on website thechive. The ‘real’ snow speeder – a modified version of the T-47 air speeder in Star Wars parlance – could achieve speeds in excess of 500mph.
