I will however let you all into a secret of mine. A few years ago I was astonished to see the work of a retired Japanese Dentist who has faithfully reproduced a number of WWII war birds in aluminium. I can quite honestly say that I have never before or since seen something as beautiful and accurate as these models. I am fortunate in that I work in a University teaching aerospace engineering and have access to all of tools and materials required to do something like this one day. To date I have accumulated a large folder of information on a Photo Reconnaissance Spitfire that I would love to reproduce in the fine detail that this man has. Of course this would be a very long term project as I don't think I could ever dedicate all of my free time to just one project as he has. You never know, one day I might start it? I have included a selection of photos of this mans work if you have never seen it before below:

I agree it is hard to keep a focus on one project with so many distractions to draw us to other builds etc. Now the model shown here is more a work of art and highlights the true skills of a master modeller....I am in awe of the mans work.ReplyDelete
I guess we never know for certain where embarking on a new project will take us, huge or otherwise. But it's nice to dream...ReplyDelete
...and those pics are incredible.
The most astonishing thing for me is that everything on the aircraft (except the engines) actually move and work correctly!ReplyDelete
