I think your thread ties into this mind blowing DAC thread from a few years back:

He also was contracted by Singapore Airlines to do an A380 as well. Glad he was paid for his amazing skills on that build.

I wish I could so the same, but I have a cat.

She would just sit/lay right in the middle of the damn thing and I could never complete it.

Jeebus that is insane detail! I wonder how many man hours have gone into this project, I bet a 1:1 aircraft probably takes less time to assemble! Those engines are incredible, well, the whole model is really. This in a museum now? Bet Boeing would pay a pretty penny for this model!

I also reached out to Ben Smith at Air Canada, after I came across his DAC thread. Ben mentioned to me that he would forward the DAC link I sent him to his co-workers and they would take it from there. I don't know what ever happened after that, but seeing now that he's doing well for himself and his passion for creating aviation related master pieces for some heavy hitters in the airline industry; he's in a fantastic state IMO. Cheers! T7

They'd rather sue him for an unlicensed depiction of their products...

At least he won't have to worry about Zinc Rot, but keep away from open flame and water.... Very nice job and talent of the builder beyond spectacular!

But but but... Kitties are cute doh

But when a cute lil kitty attacks the plane model and it's made of paper .. well that would be rather devastating, makes diecast safer hah leeel

Yes, I'm reviving an old thread! That's because I had left a comment on one of his YouTube videos four months ago, and he responded today stating, "Actually just started again (in my spare time)! Stay tuned." If you'd like to follow him and receive updates, this is his YouTube channel:
