  • Over the last decade, designer Luca Iaconi-Stewart has been building an incredibly detailed model of a Boeing 777, right down to the tiny seats and moving landing gear, using only paper folders and glue.

    Ero paralizzato quando ho visto che il video è un'esecuzione squisita e di enorme complessità, ma è molto curato, per lo stesso fattore, ma nel riassunto del lavoro, che non è fattibile per la commercializzazione a causa del tempo impiegato nella sua esecuzione, può essere qualificato come un hobby del costruttore. Congratulazioni per il lavoro.

    Why doesn't he use a laser cutter? I get it, he does the whole thing, but after he's done it once, I'm not sure he needs to be cutting all the parts himself. Surely it can be relaxing and even meditative, but he doesn't need to do it all the time.
