That's truly amazing! And it's a real internal combustion engine, gear box, etc. Astounding.

And for more amazing miniatures, check out the back page of the latest Fine Woodworking. You won't notice what's special about it at first. But then you see his fingers. And the giant pencil. And the little shaving coming off the plane on the pencil...

Cool Model, but he's a nut for doing it. Should probably spend some time down at the Salvation Army or something with his spare time. He's got 9 out of 10 traits of a serial killer, i'm sure.

I'm all for people helping people but anyone can do that kind of volunteer work
and very few can do what this man has done.

Talent should be expressed.

That is incredible! I had to watch the video several times.

Just think of the countless skills this guy had to learn to create such a car. What a sense of accomplishment he must have.

One question I have though, why not build it as a radio controlled model, so he could actually drive it? It must be kind of frustrating to just start it up and rev it for a while. He could even have little servos operating the pedals and the gear shift.

I'm guessing that little engine develops quite a bit of power. Now that would be fun to drive.

Perhaps a tiny robotic man to sit in the seat and drive. Would he have to make a tiny blond babe to go along for the ride, too?

You say that like it's a bad thing.
