British couple Lenny and Meriel Lenfesteys build tiny figures they call “sparebots” from LEDs, resistors, capacitors, wire and other electronic spare parts. The models are only three to four centimetres high.
Lenny says: “I started doing the models with my wife about two years ago, but to be honest I kind of took over after a while because she has much better things to do. We first started making the models when we got an electronics kit and then it sort of went on from there“.
“Because of the tiny scale it is tricky to set up the right poses. It can take several hours before I have something I am happy with to shoot and I never like to use the same combination of parts for each figure“.
