The Spitfire is probably the most recognizable airplane from World War II. As part of the U.K's Help for Heroes "Operation Egg Box - Highly Classified" fundraising initiative, Eggs for Soldiers enlisted sculptors Jack Munro and Charlotte Austen to help build a life-size Mark I Spitfire made from 6,500 egg cartons.

Building a 39-foot long and 42-foot wide Spitfire sculpture isn't something you piece together over a weekend. From start to finish, it took the two sculptors about six weeks to construct the egg carton Spitfire. That said, the plane sculpture isn't all egg cartons. Its underlying skeleton includes 12 pieces of steel and timber framing to give it strength, and the sculptors needed five liters of glue, 5,000 nails, 10 liters of paint and 10,000 staples to hold it all together.

We kind of wish the Spitfire lit up or had a working component, but that's just our inner tech geek spilling out. You can see a time-lapse of the Spitfire being built along with close-up shots of the plane in the gallery below.
