Today the Department of Teeny-weeny Wonders shares the work of Japanese model artist Akihiro Morohoshi who, after years of making traditional model railroads, decided to switch things up by creating awesomely detailed miniature railroad dioramas atop and inside everyday objects such as cans of Pringles, matchboxes, gumball machines and electric guitars.
To make the scenes look good as a whole, Morohoshi had to pay attention to every minute details of his pieces: from the custom-made signs and vehicles, to the weathering of each object to make them look lifelike.
Visit Akihiro Morohoshi’s website to check out more of his marvelous miniature railway scenes, preferably while you have some Pringles in hand because those particular models make us hungry for chips.

The trees for this bank are pretty much done, there are about 20 or so. I’ll need to spin the model again so that I can start doing the other side. Still lots and lots of trees to make, but it is closing fast.
