The geometry is almost spot-on. With nothing next to it to judge it's size, you have no idea you're looking a at 1:2 scale replica. That's seriously impressive in my book...well executed.

I dont think it's that bad. He's been working on it for a couple weeks more than one year, so he's done a whole lot in that time. More than I would be able to, that's for sure.
