Stephen King is one of the most prolific writers of the 20th and 21st centuries (and lucky to be, considering his scrape with death). Among his many, many works, few loom quite as large in the imagination as IT, the story of a monster that lives in the sewers beneath a tiny New England town. The terrifying tale inspired this also terrifying, but incredibly detailed, model of Derry, Maine built in a radio. This Derry, Maine model by Kassiopeya, called, Welcome to Derry, embodies the horror and violence of Stephen King's unforgettable work.

The model – which is, again, built in a radio – offers a look at both above ground and subterranean Derry. The sparsely populated town is creepy beyond belief in its late afternoon setting, and of course Pennywise's domain is appropriately ghoulish and nightmarish.

Feast your eyes on the painstaking work of Kassiopeya, a German artist whose attention to detail is somehow even scarier than the work that inspired him. Prepare to be amazed and horrified.
