Here’s a site about a guy who has unbelievable skill and passion for scale models.

 

To someone who doesn’t work with their hands or appreciate fine detail, this kind of thing can easily be glossed over and ignored. But when you look closely, it appears he must have a legion of miniature people to carry out the task of creating these masterpieces. The only real comparison is with the makers of fine watches and jewelry. Not to disparage them in any way but their craft has largely been influenced by CAD/CAM digital software and related machinery. These models are hand crafted using the original blueprints where available and most of the machinery is made by the man himself.

 

I was an avid model builder in my youth and spent many hours lost in the fantasy world of hot rod and custom cars that I dreamed I would build and drive when I grew up.

 

This however is a different level of attention that I still can’t quite comprehend even though I know he’s the real deal. For the most part, all of the ancillary items work; the brakes, suspension etc move and replicate the original appearance to an uncanny degree. The finish, proportion and scale are all spot on.

 

He’s a Spaniard but the language of a craftsman is universal.

 

As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words so click on the pic and prepare to be amazed.
