I Guess Everyone Needs a Hobby

A group of Swedish design students have built (and destroyed) a miniature Manhattan inside a friend's apartment. From what I can tell, it was created for a music video using only wood, glue, plaster and paint.

It's cool, I'll give them that. (And I love the wallpaper!) But why is it ALWAYS New York? Couldn't they have destroyed Stockholm?

See more pictures here.

Cool, I wonder how they gave all the buildings the perfect colors and textures. They must have some talented artists!

that's pretty cool, but isn't it a little strange that someone would want a destroyed Manhattan in a music video?

So detailed! Whenever I try to do something like that, well lets just say it doesn't turn out good.

That's really interesting. I wonder what their inspiration was. 'Hey let's go make a model of Manhattan and destroy it!' 'Yesh! Let's do it!'
I wish I had that much spare time
