Back in my college days, we regularly make scaled models of our proposed designs. I know by experience how tedious it is to make a scaled model using the usual materials. This is why I appreciate the intricacy of these sculptures since creating a scaled model out of toothpicks is a lot harder than using boards or vinyl for scaled models.
