Hi Everyone,
I recently completed a custom Z scale briefcase layout. I did an enormous amount of work on it and made it very detailed. I then created a website,, about it which has a "How To" section along with pictures of the various scenes and extra detail. The feature of the layout is a fiber optic police car with working lights. Feel free to check it out and pass the work along. Thanks.

G'day Keith, Welcome to the best Forum by the way....I'll check out your website straight away...Z Scale fascinates me ..I do HO because when I started in the hobby several years ago , N Scale was my choice but found it too demanding and quickly switched to HO... BUT 1:220 , the mind boggles...You have my undeniable appreciation as do those who do great N Scale...Fantastic...I hope you enjoy being part of this amazing group of modellers across all scales...Cheers Rod ( in Australia.).
