The attention to detail is beyond incredible. Honestly it looks like you could just step into most of those pictures as if the place were full size. Totally awesome work....thanks for sharing it.

  Truly awesome work and attention to detail.

So much detail it is difficult to take it all in.   So many little touches that just make it life like.  Thanks!

Don't be fooled!  Those are real shops!  The only question is "What happened to the roof?"  I've never seen a tornado that just blew the roof off but left the walls standing like that. :headscratch:

Same here.

It seems like the website has been shut down, or else moved somewhere else.

It looks like a lot of his diorama work uses material from Sierra West. The machine tool kits are available there in O scale. It just moves the question upstream though. Someone machined the brass masters that are used to make the castings.
