New To Z Scale?

This is really small stuff. Things that are easy in larger scales are more difficult. You need tweezers and a magnifying visor. I don't recommend the scale unless you are handy with small tools.


You can pack a lot of realism in a small space. Done right, they run great. By taking less space, it's easy to transport and have people get together at various locations.
