Why not build a life-size World War II fighter plane out of egg cartons?  That’s what architect Jack Munro and sculptor Charlotte Austen did.  They took 6 long hard weeks using 65,000 egg cartons building the iconic British fighter plane – the Spitfire.

The stats:   36 ft in size, 6,500 egg cartons, 10,000 stapes, 5,000 nails, and 450 Pritt Sticks.

The life-size 36ft model took architect Jack Munro, 26 and sculptor Charlotte Austen, 27, six weeks to build using 6,500 egg boxes, 10,000 staples, 5,000 nails and 450 Pritt Sticks.
