It’s a toy…It’s not a toy….

LifeSize Boat Model Kit 1 565x400 Its a toy...Its not a toy....

Like many children, Michael Johansson had fun making things out of model kits.  As an adult, he turned that love into  reality on a larger scale. 

Dinghy-sized and plastic looking, this boat model kit looks like it’s ready to be picked up  and assembled!  Unfortunately, unbeknownst to the eager viewer, this innocent looking sculpture is actually metal welded together, and painted white to give it a plasticity look.  Johansson is not just fond of boat model kits.  Check out the other model kits he has a strange inkling for; In his Engine Sold Separately series, a hair dryer kit, and what looks like either an electric baking mixer or some sort of electric tool; In his Some Assembly Required series, a bicycle.   Too bad that one wasn’t real.
