16 bit Models was an exhibition held in Akihabara over the weekend. It brought model makers together to pay homage to some of the great games from the 16-bit era (and beyond), and included everything from Street Fighter II to Crazy Taxi to Outrun.

A ton of great photos were taken of the event’s highlights and posted to Twitter, the star being an incredible recreation of Silpheed’s intro.

Some of these are 100% original builds, others take existing kits and heavily modify them. Here are some of the other highlights:
