Check out this site to see some real quality model making from scratch.
You have to scroll down a lot and ignore the language.
Now thats what I call a labor of love.
Oh...my...God! That is unbelievably fine work! And a beautifully
done, complete pictorial record of how it was made. I'm totally
awestruck. I'm also amazed that the guy seemed to use regular sized
tools, was making everything from sheet and bar stock - stuff I would
have sworn had to be cast - wasn't using glasses or magnification when
lacing up the wheels, made the damn door handles work and was a cool
enough guy to have a picture taken with him standing someways behind it
to make it look full size. The only thing that you could possibly say
indicated that it was a scale model was the fabric weave used for the
convertible top. There must be thousands of hours in that model.
Human beings have some amazing potential and this guy has achieved
something wondrous. Thanks for posting that link, Dave!
I looked at a lot of his studio pictures and he seemed to only wear
glasses. I was expecting to see all sorts of lighted magnifying
viewers, loupes and that sort of thing. I'd love to have a beer or
three with that guy.
