A pair of Star Wars fans have sent a Revell Star Wars Easykit X-Wing Fighter Pocket into space.

The stunt for Project Helium Tears was a bid to secure Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiere tickets, and it has racked up over 370,000 views on YouTube so far.

Revell will shortly be announcing new additions to the Star Wars Easykit range to co-incide with the arrival of The Force Awakens.
