Though very little of this has to do with trains, this is some really good work and really makes you think:

Amazing model making, but creepy and unsettling as well.

Yep, that is some superb modeling, just a shame that it is about destruction and not about what we want to see-fine model railroad building. Oh well, the builder may not like trains!

I see it this way; we can all learn something from other modelers, no matter if they model trains or not...

I suppose I should model this in my layout. This is a pic of what was a high voltage pole and line. There are 122,000 acres of similar landscape just south of me now. Thankfully we survived. End of world... almost...
