This kind of thing amazes me about our Greatest Generation. I know I will never have the skill or patience for such craftsmanship. I can't wait to see his Mustang.

Yep. Just have to wish and pray a long life for him, so that he can built as many planes as possible http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I don't think he is that old (although close)...he was only 13 when the war ended. He was in the Korean war (all though I have never heard them called "the Greatest Generation") but we didn't "win" that one (LOL). http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Amazing work. The dedication is what I find really impressive, not necessarily the exactness of the model. The modeller that I really like has his photos here:

The SPit almost looks totally real.

I have seen that sort of metal working and detail before in some exceptional live-steam scale model locomotives but never in an aircraft model. Stunning.

I agree with the thread title.
I hope that it can be in a safe place and never damaged at all. What a true work of art and a labor of love from the maker.
Amazing work.

He made a P-51 Mustang, too. Scroll down...

That mustang is just stunning. It may still have that handmade look to it. But the detail is absolutely stunning. Wish I had that skill. Someone should group this guy with that guy who built that mini Ferrari that actually run. Think of the possibilities, one of those planes with working engines and all.
