Miniature Wonderland – World Most Expensive Hobby

Scale modeling is copy of an object that is smaller than actual size of the object that show really creative design. Often scale modeling is used to modeling and after create object in full size. Mostly Scale modeling is done by engineering, but in most other cases this is done by people that do modeling as a hobby. Hobbyists or amateur modelmakers make die-cast models, injection molded, model railroads, remote control vehicles, wargaming and fantasy collectibles, model ships and ships in bottles for their own enjoyment. On photos bellow you will see whole cities modeling with bridges, transportation, mountains, Churches, industry, people, even lighting. Even if not looking so, this hobby is really expensive in Germany where those modelings are made. As example, few people in pack cost more than $20, couple trees cost more than 20$. One Locomotive with couple wagons cost more than $3.000. What you thing, how much object on photos bellow cost? My guess is that final product cost at least few million dollars.
