A 1:60 Scale Boeing 777 Built Entirely from Paper Manilla Folders by Luca Iaconi Stewart sculpture paper models flight airplanes Inspired by high school architecture class where he was assigned to create simple paper models using cut paper manilla folders, San Francisco-based designer Luca Iaconi-Stewart went home to begin construction on an extremely ambitious project: a 1:60 scale reproduction of a Boeing 777 using some of the techniques he learned in class. That was in 2008, when Iaconi-Stewart was just a junior in high school. Unbelievably, the project continues five years later as he works on and off to perfect every aspect of the plane. Relying on detailed schematics of an Air India 777-300ER he found online, he recreates the digital drawings in Adobe Illustrator and then prints them directly onto the paper manila folders. But everything has to be perfect. So perfect, that Iaconi-Stewart says he?s actually built two airplanes, the one you see here and the numerous failed attempts including three tails, two entire sets of wings, and multiple experiments to ensure everything is just so. The paper plane-making wunderkind hopes to finally wrap up the project this summer and isn?t quite sure what will happen next, but thinks an even larger 20-foot model could be an interesting next step. So far there are no plans for the completed model to go anywhere, but it would look great in an aeronautical museum or in the lobby of a certain aircraft manufacturer?s lobby. Just some suggestions.

How’s that for balance? Must see

U.S. woman becomes first person to walk a slackline between two trucks driving at full speed
 
Walking along a tightrope would be terrifying enough for most people.
Add two speeding trucks at either end of the cable and the feat suddenly seems more like an impossible scene from a Hollywood blockbuster.
But for one young woman it provided the perfect adrenaline-inducing stunt to show off her impressive highlining skills.
American slackliner Faith Dickey, 23, became the first person to perform such a death-defying exploit on an unopened stretch of a new motorway in Croatia, with no oncoming traffic.



Death-defying: U.S. stunt woman Faith Dickey, 23, risks her life as she becomes the first person to cross a high wire between two moving trucks



Relieved: Having survived the dramatic stunt, Miss Dickey said that this particular one was the most terrifying that she had even done
After fastening the tightrope between the two trucks, Miss Dickey limbers up and crosses the wire while both vehicles are still.
But the feat suddenly becomes much harder as they speed along the fresh tarmac with the central barrier of the road separating them.
Miss Dickey makes her first attempt and just a few feet in wobbles and falls, narrowly clinging on to the wire and hauling herself back up.

Film crews who have worked on blockbusters such as James Bond, Harry Potter and Pirates of the Caribbean, prepare to capture the crossing



Nerves: Miss Dickey – a world record holder in highlining – psyches herself up as she prepares for the most difficult stunt of her career



The stunt woman makes good progress on stationary practice runs, signalling that she’s ready to attempt the same crossing while the wagons are rolling
With the wind speed battering her, and legs shaking vigorously, she continues her precarious walk between the two wagons.
In a dramatic finish with seconds to spare, she leaps onto the wagon before it speeds through a tunnel.
Miss Dickey, who is the world record holder for highlining, said that the stunt was one of the most terrifying she has done.

Cautious: As the trucks pull off, Miss Dickey checks everything is in place before she makes her first tentative steps across the rope
The stunt appears to be going well, with the daredevil holding up well despite the wind battering her and shaking the rope

A brief wobble on the rope and the stunt woman drops to her knees as she struggles to stay upright

Disaster: One wrong foot placement and Miss Dickey slips, only just managing to hold on to the rope to prevent her from dangling upside down by a safety catch on her ankle



Near miss: With her legs in the air, Miss Dickey swings on the cable desperately trying to keep alive her adrenaline-inducing crossing
She added: ‘I’m used to heights, long lines and lines that sway in the wind. But those lines are firmly anchored to cliff-faces.
‘Walking a line attached to two moving points is something quite different.’
Peter Pedrero, who normally works with stunts in films such as James Bond, Harry Potter and Pirates of the Caribbean, worked with Faith to create the stunt.
He said: ‘And here was I thinking that every imaginable stunt had already been done. The fact is that nobody has ever before walked a line between two moving trucks.
