Building model airplanes is nothing new for some aviation enthusiasts, but one man in China has taken that to a whole new level. He has constructed a 1:1 model of an Airbus A320.

Twitter user @kevinjia posted some shots of the man’s mockup A320 on a recent visit to see the plane. His post says the man used “tons of steel” and pictures from the internet to construct his dream airplane.

Some of the items on board were gathered from flight simulators, while the landing gear tires were taken from actual A320s. The plane even has engines that spin, complete with sound effects.

We all know AvGeeks are a dedicated group, but this guy has really stepped up his game.
