    I was forwarded a email featuring pictures of this gentleman's handy work. All I can say is amazing! You decide for yourself! this gentleman's name is listed as Young Park of Hawaii. Every piece has been handmade by Mr. Park and is fully functional. all levers and knobs in **** pit turn, all wing surfaces move with input from cockpit.

    Beautiful, but I'll be honest. If I had that much talent I would build a full size one instead of this!

    Then he'd have to have a much larger workbench!

    I saw it in person and couldn't believe my eyes.

    While it has been posted before, I too never get tired of being reminded of such unworldly talent. Truly amazing and astonishing. A wonder of the world that is priceless, if you ask me. Should be in a world class museum.

    Initially I was wondering what scale then I saw the tweezers picture. Damned if this not some of the finest work I've seen, but then you have to ask yourself.....'what do you do to top this?'

    It was offered to the Smithsonian with the condition it was to be put on display. They was enthusiastic in adding it to their collection, but couldn't guarantee that :(

    I myself think this is worthy to be in the oval office in the White House.

    Like I have said many times .... you have to see it in person!

    Quite something. Stuff from the stratosphere. Shame it's not on view in the Smithsonian.

    Mr. Park has made an incredible job, but I prefer Mr. Rojas Bazan models, not because he is Argentine like me, he´s making all alu models since many years and work for great museums.
    Thanks for sharing this stuff.
