Absolutely stunning. And what about Willard Wigan? We're waxing lyrical - justifiably so - about the amazing scratchbuilding skills on display from certain members of the forum. This guy would be including numerals on cockpit instruments and pimples on the pilot's nose! I'd kill to have even a millionth of his ability to control his movements so precisely. And using a fly hair as a paintbrush? Gives new meaning to the term "hairy stick"! :shock:

Wow, interesting stuff,
That makes 1:144 seem so gigantic in comparison,

Thanks for sharing,

Crumbs. Ludicrously skilled and not for those who suffer from hay fever apparently... but wow.

Although, I can’t help get the feeling that if you can only appreciate it through a microscope lens then there’s not a great deal of point. The larger ones in the needle are a bit more understandable.

On the other hand.. The microscopic small items are a lucrative business.
