A 1:60-Scale Boeing 777 Made Entirely From Paper Manilla Folders

Inspired by an architecture class in high school where he was assigned to create simple paper models using cut paper manilla folders, San Francisco-based designer Luca Iaconi-Stewart embarked on a journey to construct a 1:60 scale reproduction of a Boeing 777 using techniques acquired through this class. This took place in 2008, when he was only a junior in high school.

Fast forward five years later, and he has managed to perfect every aspect of the plane. With the use of the detailed schematics of an Air India 777-300ER he found online, he recreates the necessary aspects and prints them directly onto the paper manilla folders. He hopes to wrap up the project this summer and is also hoping to build an even larger 20-foot model, which could prove to be even more ambitious!
