Scratch-building an insanely detailed 1/48-scale "old barn"

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Watching these scratch-building diorama videos is my idea of relaxation entertainment. Being someone who does a lot of game modeling and terrain making, I know many of the techniques employed here. He makes them look easy, effortless. They are not. Nearly every phase of this build is jaw-dropping to me. And the results speak for themselves.
