These models are breathtaking, not only in their craftsmanship, but in the fact that they actually function:

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they'’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’'s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It'’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.” –Muhammad Ali

    Those are impressive because the tolerance must be tighter on the smaller machines than the bigger ones. The next step is to use the smaller machines to build replicas of themselves even smaller again!
