Watch the progress as a master model maker creates an incredible miniature version of the U.S. Navy Kingfisher in 1:15 scale. No power tools were used; it’s just one of those things that has to be seen to be believed. Wonder if he would like to scale this up a bit?

That's a wonderful example of craftsmanship. Absolutely amazing what can be accomplished by using hand tools.

I'm intrigued by whether he uses rivets, or if he simulates the rivets and glue's the skin to the bulkheads. Every one of his models gets better.
