Retired engineer creates very detailed miniature vehicles out of wood

A retired engineer has turned his talents to carving miniature vehicles in amazing, miniscule
detail. Charles Scott, or “Charlie” as he is known to his friends, lived most of early life in the arid Southwest.
Though born in Missouri, his family moved to New Mexico when he was 4 years old to alleviate his childhood
asthma. He grew up in New Mexico and received his degree in electrical engineering at New Mexico State
University. Scott, 70, went to work in electric utilities in 1972 and traveled around the country. He built power
plants in Texas, Georgia, Louisiana, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Virginia and Costa Rica.
