Incredibly detailed mini-world in 1/24 scale

Michael Paul Smith is not content with making just one 1/24 scale model. No, he's built an entire town full of cars, buildings, business establishments, dusting it with snow and calling it Elgin Park. We call it magnificent.

That's just the beginning, though, because Smith is an expert photographer, and knows how to place his intricately detailed creations in front of backgrounds that make them look almost indistinguishable from reality. Check out the gallery below and prepare to be astonished.
