    Check out the linkage he built for the carbs (It's in the beginning of the video). Unreal.

    Clearly this is someone who has exacting standards.

    I know a woman who has such standards.
    She does wood carving of birds as a hobby.
    Her work is exquisite.

    The birds are life-size, with every feather in place and properly nuanced before they are coloured to match nature.

    When all the work is completed the bird looks so real that you almost expect it to fly on its own.

    I used to get into making scale "Beat up" crawlers.
    So lots of rust, flat "primer" paint, different parts from the junk yard.
    Here's a pic, but check the link for the full album.
    Fun projects for the winter here in Ohio.

    Wow, SleepyC. If there was nothing in those pics to provide scale, I would not have known they’re models. Nice!
