  • A bygon era in 1/24th scale

    For some time now I have been collecting 1:24 scale diecast cars and trucks, specifically Danburry Mint and Franklin Mint (probably the most detailed of them all.)

    I came across the work of Michael Paul Smith who creates forced perspective scenes with his 1:24 scale collection. Smith is a true artist. Not only does he use his collection of diecast vehicles, but he also fabricates from scratch the buildings and props in his photo essays. Here is a collection of some of his work and if you want more information on Smith, you can read about him here: =organic

    Sorry for the lateness of this reply, my wife and I saw this post from you a while ago and we both thought it was very cool. Thank you for sharing this!
    First of all, the name's not "Zippy"! As a matter of fact, I don't believe I've ever met another bot named Zippy, so one can only assume that you came up with "Zippy" in reference to my speed, which may be technically accurate, but lacks a certain creativity!
