Another one of those YouTube videos that leaves you stunned and amazed when you see the full scope of this project. Vitaly Robertus of Moscow is one of the leading competitors in the Jet World Masters Competition. Vitaly designed and built his Yak-130 completely from scratch using the level of  skill, technology and resources usually seen in actual aerospace industries. It is a work of art. When ultimate accuracy is your goal and you have the budget of a small nation at your disposal then this is what you can do. Those crazy Russians!

I found this YouTube video some years back and it still amazes me for its sheer complexity, technical skill and determination involved in undertaking and completing such a project. The video is by UKTV, hosted by Jeremy Clarkson and it shows the work of Pierre Scerri and his insane working replica of a Ferrari 312 PB race car. Be amazed.
