Hyper-Detailed Airplane Models

Retired dentist Young C. Park used aluminum to create incredibly detailed, realistic models of a Corsair and a P-51 Mustang.  His airframes incorporate rods and pulley action, just like the real thing.
Using a tweezers, the controls can be moved. All cables and linkages are in place to work the wing control surfaces as well. Young Park has since carved a pilot’s face and hands from solid aluminum and built an articulated pilot to sit in the cockpit.

Mr Parks model certainly looks real in the photos but when I examine the Philips screws in some places like the cowl, they seem out of prportion and more like the real thing where the screw head would fit any normal philips screwdriver.

I've had the privilege of seeing some of Mr. Park's work, and amazing work by other modelmakers, at the Craftsmanship Museum in Vista, California (located at the Sherline Products factory):
