Tiny Airplane Lands Inside a Lightbulb

by Paul Strauss

I’ve always been impressed by those model makers who can cram a tiny ship inside of a bottle, but this model has completely blown my mind. What you’re looking at here is a tiny model of a KLM Airbus A330 inside of an incandescent light bulb.

This incredible model was made by a guy in Poland named Rafał Ż, and it measures just over 2 inches long. He made it based on a miniaturized version of papercraft model template he found over on Paper Replika, though he had to tweak it a little bit to get it to fit.

I cannot imagine the amount of patience and dexterity that it took to make this tiny thing, but it really is an amazing bit of work.

The only thing better would be if it actually lit up when screwed into a socket.

    A very nice job and not that easy, but not as difficult as it appears. The plane and the wings are made separately outside the bulb. The wings are attached after the plane is inside. Model sailing ships are done in a similar manner.

    It still takes incredible dexterity with a pair of long tweezers, though. Otherwise, it would be as impossible as it looks. :)
