Have they got a web site for them?

 

Or did you buy them locally?

 

Also I know you can't "import" them directly from maker as it's got something to do wth customs, which is strange coz they get in the country somehow?

Shane, the shop prices them at the time they get them from the States in acordance with the exchange rate, hence the increase in price from last time.

I have seen the ebays on before. Which train scale works best for the 1:32 cars?

 

For my aust scenery I will need a number of trees that are a fair bit taller than a car.

I think it's "0" scale

If you look at the details most sites list the height in mm. They usually start at 30mm and go up to 200mm.

Just select what you need. I used 50mm Trees for small bush's and then brought an assortment of 60,80,90,110 and 150mm.

1:32 Scale in Model Railway sizes is officially Gauge 1, I think. Not a lot of it in Australia as far as I know. 0 scale is 1:48. I have seen 1:35 scale stuff listed on eBay. It's one of the more common scales for military & war diorama stuff.


Computers. They'll never catch on.
