Luca Iaconi-Stewart has spent years building an incredible 1:60 model of a Boeing 777 – out of manila folders. The young designer draws the forms in Adobe Illustrator, then prints them out on the folders before cutting them out, according to Wired.

Iaconi-Stewart devoted an entire summer just to the seats (20 minutes for an economy seat, four to six hours for business class, and eight hours for first class). Tweezers helped. He designed the engines in about a month and assembled them in four.
