Dmitry Balandin uses a wooden external prosthesis as he plays with his wooden models Centurion, Amazonand Kid in his flat in Zaporizhzhya, Ukraine. It took Balandin, who works as a crane operator, eighteen months to build models from 1750 parts.

Balandin says he does not use blueprints and designs the parts as he works on them. He says he would love to build metal models but that is impossible to do so in his small apartment. He plays with models as a child would play with a doll or Lego toy and he hopes to have them displayed at exhibitions and galleries.
