Not sure how many are familiar with Bill Robertson.  is work is beyond belief. It is very highly detailed and accurate. Above it a TED talk he  recently gave. Enjoy.

When I was a TV reporter in Tulsa, Oklahoma I did a story about dollhouses. The lady who owned the store we visited told me the bread and butter sales aren't the houses but the furniture. She showed me some miniature rolltop desks more expensive than full size desks and may have shown me examples of Bill Robertson's work. -- Russ

Thanks a lot for the link!
Very fine modeling, and a nice lecture. Thrilled that modeling was found worthy enough for a TED talk.

I saw the drafting school in a magazine years ago. Awesome work.
