Step 6: Finishing steps

Picture of Finishing steps
Glue the top two thrusters on. This is the fiddliest bit as they don't have anything to rest against. A little blob of poster putty will be your good friend here. Glue on the top two cannons, and glue a strip of staples behind the cockpit to give more body. You are done - unless you can think of some way to add an R2 unit. You can also use one of the discarded large binder bodies as a display stand.

Okay, I really need to get back to work now.

instead of normal pen caps we can also add those LED pens with those blue LEDs on top, that way we can have really cool ion thruster and if placed beside your bed can add up as a really cool night light..

Now all we need is a tie fighter version... Maybe the ball from a defunct old-school mouse and some of the cardboard backs from post-it notes?

The eraser pulled from a standard #2 pencil could easily be an R2 unit.
Thats actualy a great idea,all you would need to do is dip it in white out, then with a pen make blue markings
Here's Mine! R2 unit, Rebel Alliance coloring, clear cockpit windows and all!

nice , if you glued the sd card down , and the pencil sharpener to the lid ( not the pen body ) you could still use the pen w/o destroying the epicness of the creation

You could find a gel pen and take the end out of it... maybe a pen similar to these.

If need be take some white out to paint it white. Glue it down and this could be your R2 unit. Nice job. Now I need to get back to work too!
