Ok, maybe not in any scale, but these cars look fabulous.  The fact that they are z scale is amazing.

They're on Jürg's site.

Next he'll power them and have them driving up and down the streets. I am impressed. I wonder what power microscope he uses... :-[

  I really makes me want to change Scales and model the entire state of Nevada in a Gym or Airplane Hanger sized location. Nate Goodman (Nato).Salt Lske,Utah. "His railroad is pretty nice also,not just the Autos."

Actually modeling the whole state of Nevada would be like using 4 or 5 rock molds to make a mountain: just keep making the same 4 or 5 scenes and just keep turning them around, bending and breaking off chunks.  That's 90% done.  As far as trains, the UP up from Vegas to Utah, the UP (ex SP/WP) across from the Salt Flats to the Sierra foot hills and the Nevada Northern to the right of the middle of nowhere.

The best(?) thing about driving thru Nevada is you can do 90+ for looong stretches.

To quote Steely Dan: "The trip we made to Vegas is etched upon my mind..."

Bob in Idaho, who can (barely) see Nevada from his deck (on a clear day).
