Sister publications Obscura and BlackBird (both products of Hong Kong’s Silly Thing) present an inside look at the world of a model car creator, in their latest film. Philip Mitchell, of Amalgam Fine Model Cars, is a craftsman, enthusiast, and purveyor of an artform that is instantly familiar yet unknown to most. Beautifully shot on location at Blackbird Heritage Motorworks, HK, watch the film above as Mitchell discusses his life and passion as an artist, and following through with a career that began with a childhood obsession.
