Swedish artist Michael Johansson made this life-size dinghy “model kit” from a real boat and related equipment. The pieces of “TOYS’R’US,” as it’s called, are fastened together by a welded tubular frame and painted a uniform gray. Michael has done several of these 1:1 “model” kits made from life-size original objects. [via Dude Craft]
