Image of the Day: Huge X-Wing mailbox

Craig Smith wasn't content with a simple Star Wars-themed mailbox. He wanted it to be big, and that's exactly what this X-Wing is. It's five feet long with a wingspan of five feet as well.

According to Smith, he's had his mailbox for a while now, actually, and there's even some other wild 'boxes on the street that his X-Wing could one day cross S-foils with:

I made this so long ago, it is actually in need of weathering repairs and repainting. I never expected it to survive vandalism or theft for half a decade. But at five feet long and a five foot wingspan, theft would be quite difficult. Everybody from letter carriers to pizza delivery go out of their way to say how much they like it. There is a street about 10 miles away where older guys have a mailbox rivalry with custom car, firetruck and airplane mailboxes, I should mail them a photo.
