Martin Aveyard's world-class 1:64 models are pure car zen, but he won't sell

In my circle of friends, there's not a single car enthusiast who doesn't have a shelf or drawer of toy cars, whether 1:18-scale models they built themselves or 1:64 Hot Wheels they bought at the grocery store in a blister pack.

The level of detail is off the chart here. 1/18 and 1/24 are easy to get small detail but 1/64 is where it goes to a whole new level of skill much like a watch maker.

Impressive work.

fyi, we had a typo in the headline — aveyard works at 1:24, not 1:64 scale.

Still high quality work.

Still waiting for parts companies to use 3-D printing to re-create metal and trim parts for full size classic cars.

This is starting to happen. In Studebaker circles we have heard about it because the need for cores to scan is one of the roadblocks.

Super-talented person.

We worked with a guy that liked to do big rig models and photo them in settings and they were very good. These are a magnitude better.

I had a stretch of doing models as a kid and was always frustrated with paint finish between the testors paint (stock in my area was so old most of the time) and managing the brush.

It also never failed that you would glue everything perfect on the model but somehow get that one smear on the window.

All I can say is Ryan Anthony Schmidt should be taking photos with these wonderful recreations. Ryan is a young kid with Autism that does phenomenal work. I hope these two connect.

Yes I agree, Ryan' s model car photos are fantastic, considering his age. The 6 minute video on youtube is very interesting and entertaining.

His level of detail is just amazing. I bet if he did sell the models it would be incredibly pricey.
