    This guy was building a z-scale (1:220) model train track. In it he wanted to have a model of a model-train shop and in the window a model train for that scale. So here it is, an n-scale (1:160) model train within a z-scale model. Recalculated, this model train is thus 1:35200.

    Well if you got time to spare :lol:

    I wouldn't have the eyes, or the patience to make something that small. Amazing!
