Sounds like a great idea David.
I hope there are some modern building pieces coming from this collaboration.

Man, Z scalers get all the breaks...  That line should be spectacular.

P.S. Pretty slick marketing prose too.  ;)

Eventually.

Eventually in DKS time, or eventually in Walther's time?

DKS time, to be sure. If I had 48 hours in a day, and/or a few employees, these would be out in N already.

We're developing a monthly release plan, so there will be a new Z kit released the first of each month, starting with November.

At some point along the line, the series will be upscaled to N, and we'll have the two lines running in parallel. But we really need a lot of experience under our belt first, mostly in how to be as efficient as possible so we don't get in over our heads. Plus, we need to do it in a way that doesn't impinge on our respective individual projects as well. Speaking of, there will be an announcement for a new N scale product in about a week. Not a structure, sorry to say, but hopefully a little something that's cool and useful.
