    Skilled craftsmen? It would take a team of master craftsman a year to build that thing. Skilled is the understatement of the year. I bet you'd be looking at the cost of an average home to reproduce that thing to the same level of quality today.

    That looks like a work of art but what happens when it breaks o_O Back then things were built by hand and people used there minds to figure things out....Today it has to be drawn up on a computer and all the parts cut out by a machine :(
