For those fortunate enough to attend the National Z Scale Convention in Denver next month, here's a little foretaste of something the attendees may want to see: nztproducts.blogspot.com/2012/04/denver-proxy-part-1.html

Two more parts to follow. Here's a peek at an image from Part 2:

Muy authentico!  How about a larger version of this pic?



I like the sidewalk setback on the townhouse block.

I'll go one better, and let you have a really big version of a more recent pic. (The blog is a couple of days behind real time.)

Fantasti. You keep moving the bar upwards with your impressive modeling David.  Can you turn me onto the source for the street lights?

Thanks
Stu

I got them from a seller named everestmodel on eBay. Look for T93 lamp posts.

The atmosphere and attention to detail displayed are spot on.  I especially like this shot, as an example of this:

http://www.nztproducts.com/images/IMG_1778_1200.jpg

I could never tell this diorama was Z from the pictures (except the one with the x-acto blade in it).  I'd love to see a shot that shows the whole scene next to something familiar (a breadbox?) that shows how tiny it is.

Well done, both of you.

In the diorama give-away department you've trumped the MTL-Cubbin offering!
