Creativity resides in the soul of Carlos Espinosa. Even as a child in Mexico he created miniature wooden houses and models on the family patio.

Now Carlos and his family live in central Kansas and one room in his house is devoted to one-of-a-kind, small-scale space exploration vehicles, and another room to a miniature, complex railroad scene, complete with thunderstorm and a house burning.

"My stuff looks different. If I see it, I can make it. If I have an hour, I create," says Carlos. And so he does, using recycled materials from cardboard, to plastic razors, to computer parts.

He encourages people to look inside his multi-level ship or his full size car/airplane. He spent 500 hours creating the Maverick Twinjet 1500, his roadworthy car/airplane from a wrecked Ford Fiesta and a recycled washing machine.
