Watch this video. You will then know what boggling of the mind really is.

I estimate that you can't get closer to perfection. I know it isn't a flying model but this amazing.

Note that what you think are real hangar doors are also scale models.

Now boggle your mind.

Almost unbelievable - a true testament to the modeller's art!

Good grief ...

Absolutely awesome - especially to someone like me, who's finest work is best viewed from fifteen paces wink

An amazing feat and looks increadible.

I suppose one advantage of modelling a WWii warbird is that most of the airframe is fabricated from sheet.

Something like Barry Hares scale Merlin most is machined from solid.

However they are both quite beyond anyhting I can even dream of.

Very impressive build.......bet there was a few 'has to be scale' geeks at the various shows trying desparately to find fault with the build.........really hope they were disappointed

The B-17 model is just as impressive! I can turn my hand to most things but I wouldn't know where to start creating a work of art like that!

I suppose someone out there must be that good, and it looks like it's him...

People like that are there to give the other 99.99% of the population (us) something to aim for..

 

Amazing... !! He must have many many tools, and the patience of a saint..

Thanks Pete..

Chrisie.. xx

Back in the 70s a modeller in the UK built a R/C Beagle Pup in metal. a superb piece of work al though not to these standards of detail

I believe he ended up with a nervous breakdown.

It is just amazing. The Art in its pure form. Would compare it to DIY engines, but even far better. My English does not contain enough words to describe my feelings about it.

Stunning (buy I haven't seen the gentle lady yet). The attention to detail is amazing.

I wonder how much he gets paid to make them..

I am also a little puzzled about his aversion to using powered tools, if this is a commercial venture then surely the objective would be to get the model built to the same or better standard as quickly as possible.

I would not have thought that the organisation commissioning the model would really care how it was built.. I certainly would not want to file umpteen brass bullets at 1/15 scale.. for a personal venture then I can understand the labour of love. I also wonder if he has a family.
