A designer named Luca Iaconi-Stewart spent 5 years of his life creating an almost-perfect 1:60 scale replica of an Air India 777-300ER airplane. One of the most shocking parts of this story? He used only manila folder. He literally made the best paper airplane in the world. 3rd graders everywhere should be feeling pretty ashamed of themselves (I know I do).
Luca became so obsessed with this time-consuming project, he dropped out of his college classes to complete it. The engine, doorways, seats, landing gear, galley and sections of the plane were so meticulously created to scale, they all work. (The landing gear is even retractable.) It's hard to imagine spending this much time dedicated to anything, let alone building something so perfect. To see a video about this incredible process, visit Luca's YouTube channel.
