No, that's not a picture of Han Solo's trusty ship ripped straight from a Star Wars movie. It's an incredible model made by Bernard Szukiel — but here's the real kicker: it's made entirely out of paper. This is no hunk of junk.

But oh no, Bernard didn't stop there, he actually went and modeled parts of the interior too: the cockpit and the top Gun battery seat.
