Luca Iaconi-Stewart has dropped out of college to work on this beauty. That's how committed he is to the extreme detail of this Boeing 777 jet. He's been working on the 1:60 model made entirely out of manila folders for the past five years and expects to be finished with it in early 2014. When we say detailed, we really mean it! The model has working landing gear and even the opening doors are meticulously accurate to the original aircraft.
