Has anyone heard of anyone making a scale model VN, particularly in 1/8, 1/18 or 1/25 scale? I build models for a hobby, and the only one I've seen of a VN so far is what they call HO scale; 1/89, which is the proper scale for train sets.This one, for the size, is a pretty good rendition of a Calais:

My specialty is Australian scenes, and the dream at the moment is to have a car yard on the layout, when I finally get the chance to indulge my hobby properly. In my head, the layout is frozen some time around 1990, somewhere in country Western Australia. Why HO scale? Because you can fit a lot more in to a single layout than you could if you did it in larger scales.

Mind you, this little Calais would make for a cute keyring for some of you lol.

A bit of a re-paint and any mods you would like to put on it.
could be alright for the track your building.

Unfortunately they both have rounded arches :(
 

What's the difference between understeer and oversteer?
Understeer is when the driver is scared.
Oversteer is when the passenger is scared.

The only trouble with these two, is that it would be the wrong scale. a standard Hot Wheels car is about 1/60 of actual size. The HO scale is 1/89 of real size. It would be like having a Barina the size of a Landcruiser, for difference of scale, but I do appreciate the thought.
