    Wink Trainspotters delight

    Not strictly trains but if you are into models (No, not the squigy booby, "I'm gorgeous and I know it so I'm gonna sneer at everybody" type) then this will be right up your Double O !!

    Man, the time and money that went into building and setup of everything must have been tons. Very cool, but.....why?

    It's a hobby, and for most of us, it's the same reason why we're here.

    The same could be said about a lot of things.

    Last I read, the brothers that started this attraction, had invested 8 million Euros into it - largely from the paid proceeds of those who visit it.

    Nope, looks like full motion to me; there is a slot on the runway that you can see them taking off and landing on. Must be a nice camera set up also.

    That is awesome! Those guys have gone to a lot of trouble with all that detail.

    EDIT: It looks even cooler at night. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-kkhh...eature=channel

    And more of the entire tourist attraction http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PN_oDdGmKyA&feature=fvw

    Now, IF I had this "toy set", I would exercise my destructive tendencies much like Gomez Adams and his train set... Planes crashing on landing, flames everywhere!!!

    If you need to ask the question 'whats so good about a laser' - you won't understand the answer.
