Phillip Mitchell, who currently stands as Model Engineer for Amalgam Fine Model Cars, creates beautiful and meticulously detailed miniatures of the world’s finest vintage sports cars. Director Frank Liew tells Mitchell’s story as it connects to the freedom of driving and creating one’s own lane. Like many other success stories, Mitchell confesses that his profession stood out as the obvious choice – even when others pursued more ‘practical’ endeavors. A brief, yet inspiring piece, enjoy “Model Citizen” above and head here to peruse the rest of Blackbird Vol. 4.
