The Ford Bronco in this video is a remote control, 1/9th-scale model. It was hand built, out of wood, by Headquake RC Creations, which seems to be a guy working happily in his workshop in rural Ontario, Canada.

The level of detail is amazing—the miniature driver has foam arms and looks like he’s steering—and it’s fun to watch them roam their magically out-of-scale worlds. There are more videos after the jump.

I just came across these amazing charts that show the undersea topography of various U.S. cruising grounds in gorgeous relief. Each chart, built from layers of laser-cut birch, comes framed and ready to hang.

This particular one, of the Salish Sea, east of Vancouver Island, measures 25″ x 31″ and can be had for $248. Very nice indeed.
