The mailman must look forward to stopping by Craig Smith's house every day. Smith turned his ordinary looking mailbox into an extraordinary work of art, in the shape of a Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter.
"I made this so long ago, it is actually in need of weathering repairs and repainting," says Smith. "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."
