A Chinese team of miniature model makers have spent nearly 1000 hours making an IRL(In Real Life) model of Genshin Impact’ Liyue Harbour.
Genshin Impact is an Action RPG developed by Mihoyo. It is free to play with a gacha monetization system and available on almost all platforms including mobile, consoles, and PC. Since its release, it has garnered a lot of attention from gamers of all genres.
Genshin Impact currently has two playable areas unlocked out of 7. The second one is called Liyue. At the south side of Liyue lies the heart of it all, a town inspired by Chinese aesthetics called Liyue Harbor.
Recently a team of model makers in China spent nearly 1000 hours making a miniature model of Liyue Harbor in real life.

Recently a Reddit user shared a short overview of the full video showcasing the model. Apparently, it took the team 1000 hours of work to complete the whole project.
The team started working on the project and spent almost 60 days until it was done. Some models of building and harbor area are made out of paper and different materials while others were made using 3d printers.
The team had to use the character’s heights to accurately scale down the model’s assets because they did not have official models from Mihoyo. The background sky in the video is produced by using blue screens.
