At some point in your life you built models. Maybe you built trains or fighter jets, or even those giant Japanese robots. The point is, you built something. So did your dad, and his dad, and someday your kids. Thankfully, James-Michael Gregory Harlan never grew out of that phase. Which is why we get to see the White Lake Formula 1 Ring, a 1/32 scale Formula 1 track for slot cars that is 145 feet long with 19 Formula 1 worthy turns. Say goodbye to your afternoon and your sense of accomplishment because you’re going to be looking at all the tiny people, buildings, and cars in awe for quite a while.
