Papercraft Boeing Airplane Made from File Folders

The project which has been a labour of love for five years grew out of his passion for airplanes and the models he made from manila paper in a high school architecture class. Iaconi-Stewart told Wired, “There’s something rewarding about being able to replicate a part in such an unconventional medium.”
