Details: Since it's a given that we write about LEGO models here, the effect of this piece is somewhat ruined. Put that aside if you can, and show it to a family member who doesn't know what it is - preferably from a distance, or with the little thumbnail we used here. The effect is that of high speed photography - it looks like this was an explosion captured in a photograph. A close inspection reveals surprisingly little, since the construction is as simple as the model is fragile. At some level, the implied patience is part of why this is such a striking model.
