I picked up a few used books from the second-hand store last week and finally had some time to scan them in. These images are from Model Soldiers by Henry Harris. Growing up, one of my favorite books was The Indian in the Cupboard, and this led to a fascination with the Warhammer 40K figures at the local comic book store. This book doesn’t contain any space marines, but its meticulously modeled miniatures remind me of the tiny battlefields I was drawn to back then. The detail they manage to include at this scale is amazing.
Incredible, working model of an airport in miniature. Apparently this is called “real-for-real”, described by CDM as “photographing real-world things, making real things in miniature, and setting the real world into motion”. Second video has some nice making of shots. Can’t even imagine the hours that must have gone into this.
