Smallest radius for shorty Marklins

My wife asked me to put a small layout in the bottom of a display case in the living room. I have roughly 30" wide by 16-17" deep. I was thinking of doing a real landscaped thing on a base that I could just slide in. She said she would like to see one for Christmas, so that might mean 2. I love my wife.

Best I can get right now is 195 mm radius which is 15.35" diameter and 170 mm radius which is 13.3". 145 mm yields 11.4".

Anyone have a solid idea how small you can go with small 3 axle engines and 2 axle freight and 3 axle and 4 axle passenger cars?

Thanks!

Well, I found some videos on Youtube. It appears radio as small as 120mm are workable given the space available.
