I haven't been on DX in some time with a lot of personal issues taking priority, as well as my decision to wean myself from this hobby, but I still appreciate great modelwork of all kinds. I've been watching a lot of YouTube videos of radio-controlled model planes of all eras, types, sizes and scales with joy and wonder. My appreciation for the creativity of those R/C fliers led me to sample a vid featuring one of the tiniest scales (previously 1/43rd was the only sub-1/18th scale I even deigned to notice) and I was blown away.

This first video is a record of the home conversion of a Busch Mercedes W123 sedan in 1/'87th scale (which comes with working head- and taillights, for slightly less than 20 Euros!) from a static model to a running, R/C car, truly amazing in this scale. If you want to skip the construction details, jump to the 5:00 mark in the video to see the incredible features of the completed model:


In this second video, see a whole miniature town filled with working radio controlled 1/87th land and water vehicles - all home-made!:
