The Art of Kims House Models.

We know very little of the stunning work of Kims House Kinichi Karube. The models are on loosely based on plastic (and in some cases metal) kits, But this is where the commonality ends-Kinichi laces his own wire wheels, fabricates his on true-to-scale frames and even thins out the engine blocks in order to give the proper thickness of the cooling fins. The final touch is the superb weathering and painting that brings the model to the fragile realm of true realisim.
