Ian Mockett built a 20 foot replica of "At-At," an armored all-terrain vehicle from Star Wars.

The model maker, Ian Mockett said, "It was about a year ago me and my son-in-law or future son-in-law were in Florida in Star Wars World and we were standing under one of these and just looked at each other and though we could build one of these. That's what inspired it anyway."

The At-At is like a beacon that attracts Star Wars fans from miles around.

Mockett said, "It's surprising how many Star Wars fans there are, people come out of the woodwork, in fact a stormtrooper turned up - we didn't know, a guy up the road came down with a stormtrooper outfit on, so it was fantastic."

The At-At first appeared in "The Empire Strikes Back." It's used to transport forces of the galactic empire.
