San Francisco-based designer Luca Iaconi-Stewart is building a 1:60 scale model of a Boeing 777 out of manila folders, a project that he has been working on and off for the past 5 years. The 22-year-old began his incredibly detailed model back in 2008 after becoming inspired from an architecture class where he learnt to make simple models out of card. Iaconi-Stewart decided to take the idea a step further and began work on an airplane.

Iaconi-Stewart discovered a detailed schematic of an Air India 777-300ER online which he recreated in Adobe Illustrator before printing them directly onto the paper manila folders. Iaconi-Stewart says he has had to redesign many elements to make them work, saying that the hardest parts have been any curved sections or moving parts.
