Rocket Engine Underwater


When I was a kid I loved launching model rockets.  I spent many hours building them from kits, and wrapping paper tubes, and newspaper, and one even from a cardboard tube that a rug was in.  That was a fun one, we put an “F” type engine in it, there was so much black smoke … Continued

Pen Refill City


The first question I have for this guy (or more importantly, the people who donate to him), how much are you writing that you go through entire pens?  In my entire life I don’t think I’ve used up all the ink in a standard ball-point pen.  I, like the rest of the world, usually loose … Continued

Cardboard Millennium Falcon


What do you do with a couple dozen empty cardboard boxes?  Recycle them?  Burn them?  Landfill?  Those are all valid responses.  Professional model maker and reddit user trichner123 decided he wanted to make a scale model of The Millennium Falcon instead.  I think it was a good choice.

A Beautiful Miniatur Wunderland


The official video of the Miniatur Wunderland is quite something to watch: 500,000 working hours to make this.  That’s ridiculous wonder.  It occupies just about 14,000 square feet of a warehouse in Hamburg Germany. 900 trains, one of them 47 feet long travel along hundreds of miles of track.  Yes, that’s hundreds of actual miles. … Continued

SR-71 Model


There are model air planes, there are model jet airplanes, and then there is this model SR-71.  Complete with REAL JET ENGINES.  This thing looks frekin sick.  I mean, look at it, it doesn’t look like it should fly, but it does.  And since it’s a scale model, it’s close to what the real one … Continued

Hyper Realistic Model Airplanes

You can’t tell it from these pictures, but those are scale models.  Hyper detailed scale models.  Down to every last rivet.  … Continued

An RC C-17 is massive


Anyone who’s seen a C-17, or a C-130, or any of the massive cargo planes thinks to themselves, “How does that stay up?” Well, looking at this model C-17 that is RC you have the same thoughts, at least I do anyway. It’s pretty cool, lets see a U-2, that’s what I want. {Gizmodo}

Well, for the small sum of $60,000 you can have a full sized LEGO version of you made!  Isn’t that great? Personally, I would only want it if they just gave me the peices, and made me put it together myself, i mean, wheres the fun of LEGOs if you just get the finished product, … Continued
