    We danced among the lightning bolts,
    and tore the R10's assfromunder.

    The detail in those pics is fantastic. To do that you have to have patience and lots of time up your sleeve

    I like this one the best....

    I like the first one, the Snow field, as i'm presently building a snow field with incline railway to the lodges. Also with Ski lifts and Mountain rescue, as 1/5 of the layout.

    I've always wanted to have a train set - it could never look like that ones in those photos but I can dream - The only problem that I would have is having somewhere to store it. You really need to have a dedicated room or shed to have something like that set up in.

    For now I'll stick to my 1:18 scale 206 WRC's and F1 Lotus, Mclaren & Williams that I have - somewhere in boxes i have 2 or 3 1:10 scale electric RC cars and a 1/8 scale gas car. Have thought about getting one of them running and seeing if i can get a 206WRC body shell for it

    N-scale is 1/160 HO is 1/87
    GTI138, A really ectensive N layout can be put on a 60cm x 120cm board,
    have a look at The Gauge Forum at. http://www.the-gauge.com/
    Z-Gauge is even smaller at 1/220th but nobody make French cars that small. I've seen a great Z layout in a Briefcase

    My dad built me a train set when i was about 12 years old which i still have to this day. It is HO Scale, and it is suspended from pulleys from the roof of the garage. Just bring it down when you want work on it and it sits on a couple of A frames and then when you are done it gets hoisted back up above the cars again. Its quite a good size, so you could do something like that if you wanted too.

    Could you take a photo of it, as I want to do a similar thing with a slot car set I have for my boys.
    I have a AFX Mt Panorama set that I'm going to set up permenantly cause its a pain to setup and take apart.

    Thanks for that.
    The final size of the board's going to be about 5m x 3m or a bit bigger (the track is 3.8 x 2.05) so I've got a lot of work ahead of me.
