I should add the first one my tracks did not turn out well at all, a friend loaned me the dvd put out by toys and Joys on making tracks and the second set went well. so I would recommend that DVD it sure helped me.

Very nicely done, tracks are the worst part of construction. I have not seen the DVD, but I did design a jig, or two to make the pieces.

Very nice!!!!! These things always amaze me. The parts are so small they must be hard to make.

That is some serious kind of cool. The tracks look so real. And I like the display as well.
