Luca laconi-Stewart may be a college dropout, but he hasn’t wasted his time or his talent during his time out of college. The designer has spent 5 years of his life creating an exact 1:60 scale replica of an Air India 777-300ER airplane. And the amazing part is that he created the model using only manilla folders.

Luca became so consumed with the project that he dropped out of his college classes so he could give more time to the project. The engine, doorways, seats, landing gear, galley and other sections of the plane were so carefully made that they actually work.

Check out the step-by-step photos of the creation of the world’s greatest paper airplane.

The project started with a tracing of a can on paper (to create the cross section of the plane).

The next step was to glue the cross-section together

  1. Love, passion come with responsibility as well.. drop out from college is not a big deal, but how he could continue his life indepedently become question mark.. unles he has other supporting live job or able to monetize this passion & skill.. good luck bro..

  2. Homospaien

    Should have invested this time in some more fruitful endeavours, like helping senior citizens and other fellow human beings.

    • How is it not fruitful? Many people would have given up after the first year at most. This guy carried on, and accomplished something he set his mind to. How is that not accomplishing anything?
