OMG…This Guy Dropped Out of College and Spent FIVE Years of His Life Doing THIS!

By | March 12, 2014

A young designer by the name of Lucas Iaconi-Stewart is not your typical guy. Lucas spend 5 years of his life building and designing an exact replica of an Air India 777-300ER airplane only out of a manilla folder! Lucas was so enthralled in his project that he decided to drop out of college and focus solely on building his model plane.

He began by tracing a can of cocoa on a piece of paper

 Then, he began gluing the sections of the plane together
