So how did you spend the last four years of your life? No matter how you answer that question, it was a complete waste of time compared to Bernard Szukiel who spent four years creating this absolute masterpiece of a Millennium Falcon model using nothing but paper, glue and more patience than any single human being has ever had to muster before.
To be completely accurate, only about 99 per cent of the 38-inch long model is actually made using paper. There are also some plastic bits used for windows, yards and yards of fibre optics, LEDs and electronics used to light the ship’s control panels inside — but the results are still just staggering. The attention to detail here rivals the models made by Industrial Light & Magic for the original Star Wars movies, except this is all paper. Paper!
Bernard referenced photos of the Falcon he found online to realise his creation, which takes it to a whole other level of impressiveness given how many tiny details he’s included. Conduits, vents, wiring, it all appears to be included and painted flawlessly. Now we just can’t wait for him to build the Death Star over the next 55 years. [Bernard Szukiel via Dorkly]
