Gulliver's Gate

Check out the new HUGE model layout in Times Square, NYC ... packed with cities, model trains, landscapes, airports, etc.

Just opened!

You can even be 3D scanned, 3D printed, and have yourself added to the scene ... at 1:87 scale!

Hey, that's pretty cool. An American version of Miniatur Wunderland.

I'll have to hop down there and have a look in person.

Looks cool, pretty spendy right now, hopefully good discounts can be obtained.

Agreed, John. $36 at the door. $27 or so via various online discount sites.

I'd say worth $27 ... lots to see. Model makers active on site, happy to talk to you.

Do you guys have any idea what real-estate values are like in Times Square? I'm surprised that they can keep the admission fee that low! Their rent and utility bills must be enormous.

That diorama of NYC is stunning! Wonder how long it took to make?
And how really accurate it is, with the smaller buildings?
