Crafty PlayStation Modder Turns Sony’s Console Into Amazing Miniature Midgar from Final Fantasy VII

Console modders can create amazing works of art and creativity, and that’s the case of the Spanisd modder MakoMod, who picked up an old PlayStation Console and turned it into a stunning miniature reproduction of Final Fantasy VII‘s legendary city Midgar.

The project took ten long months to complete, with MakoMod basically going from zero to hero, learning all the techniques as he went. For instance the metallic parts of the console are made with actual aluminium using cold casting.

The console is fully working (so you can play Final Fantasy VII with it), and it includes its own lighting system created with LED and optical fiber. Relevant landmarks like Aerith’s church and the train station are also included.

Interestingly, if you’re already in love with this little work of video game art, you can actually have it. The author has it on auction on Ebay. At the moment it’s going for 76.5 Euros, but there are still eight days to go.

Below you can see a gallery with the pictures of the completed console, together with quite a few pics in various work-in-progress stages. The last picture is a teaser of his next project, and I’m sure many won’t have problems in recognizing what it is.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
