Now thats commitment, 30 years spent building one model.

I can see it now... 
"FF, can we extend the deadline like 5 more years? I really want put those last 50,000 tiles on my Great Wall."   :lol:

Everyone should show this to their wives and say, "At least you didn't marry that guy, honey."

Seriously though, that it is pretty amazing.

That's pretty "mad" indeed, something like this should be donated to museums when they are done.

that is so cool, what a guy! If something of mine drags on to taking a month I think I have put some sort of half-assed effort in and that's only because for the most part I have been playing video games.

The detail and energy and focus that has gone into this is remarkable. Wonder if along with the 30 versions of Jesus (he says they are in there!) he has a couple of Wally's too, for the kids?

Okay... ass-time. It really is spectacular, but in 30 years you'd think he'd make better looking people OR straighten columns. Some of the columns are detractably crooked.

I thought the same thing. Some of those figs are just blobs with some paint.
