O.O ...a replica of the U.S. Capitol's dome? Weird.

I do like their detailing skills. Perhaps not so much the whole look of the houses. Some look deformed and plastic.

Question: why is it possible for these people to build such splendidly decorated and detailed architecture, and in here in the west we are lucky to get something half as detailed? Is it because it is cheap to build it that way there?

This may provide an answer.

Congrats Everyone!

This thread made it into a news article. It only took me nearly two years to notice.
