    I want one of those! I think I’m going to make one, but H0 scale… Good idea, very, very good idea!

    If it wasn’t for the coffee table, this magazine would not exist.

    What a clever idea! Apiece of artwork, yet could be played with if so desired.

    Damn, I’ve been meaning to do this for years. Now that someone’s gone and beaten me to it, maybe I’ll finally get around to getting off my duff and building my own. My concept is to build the table as a box to allow some height (mountains, streams, etc.), and maybe go with a 2’x4′ footprint.

    Think how cool it would be if someone did this in a conference table, meetings would be much more enjoyable with a little table action going down.
