Those of you that have seen some of my past posts know that I am a sucker for artistry and craftsmanship in any form. One medium that I'm intrigued with the most, is scale model making. I present you with David Damek. The way he transforms a standard plastic model kit into a hyper realistic version is mesmerizing. I used to build scale model cars for years but this guy is on a whole other level.

Here is one of his videos that shows the process from beginning to end. It's a bit long but worth the watch. If you would rather just skip to the final product, go to about 11:30.

I love the process he has to etch rivets and body panels into the wings and fuselage. A true artist using tiny pieces of plastic as his canvas.

David has a youtube channel that you can find from the video above. He also has a website

I could spend hours watching his videos and probably will. Enjoy.

I have seen this video before and it is amazing just how much detail goes into making this airplane!

Nice thread!

Friend of mine does them.

He puts erosion on the leading edges, rust in places where water would stand. It's impressive.

Incredible. That is really, really cool. A lot of skill, and A LOT of patience.

Had to be engines of war. When I was a kid I blew up all my models with firecrackers, gasoline and bb guns.

Won every time.

I had lots of Army Men. They were for outdoors, but my models stayed strictly indoors. Very impressive airbrush and detail brush painting.

Did the same to the models I didn't like. I also melted some just enough to make them look like they were in a car crash. Using a BB gun was my favorite though. I would make believe I was a sniper packing a 50 cal.
