'"Scrap materials. Each one has paperclips, folders, staples. Then some more complicated parts would be like telephone headset pieces, that you know, [a co-worker's] headset would break and they'd start giving me pieces," Brummage said. "Then to make the stands, I used either a marker or a highlighter and cut that in half and used the lid to plug it in and let them stand up that way." Brummage also used coffee stirrers, thumb tacks and pencil erasers to make the models. Pens were used to make up the laser cannons on the X-Wing Fighter. Markers make up the thrust engines.'
