How did you think they (Dominique Gualt buildings) scaled to 'Z?'
I like the Parisian stuff. Tres Chic!

This seems a good point to step out of my one year lurker status. I'm
relatively new to Z. Just under two years of collecting pieces in my
Chicago condo with the hope of an eventual layout. So far I've purchased 4
locs, 24 units of rolling stock and one Orient Express--all on Ebay and
without a hitch. Once a quarter, much to my wife's dismay, I set up two
lines arround the dining room table to "retest" the fleet.
As to the Dominique Gualt buildings, I've recently encountered the entire
line on display at Colette's Table, a Francophile shop located at 216 Robert
Parker Coffin Rd., Long Grove, Illinois (yes, they have a web
site--Colettestable.com). There are three collections, Paris street scapes,
Provence (very Med. leaning) and Alsace (very Germanic looking). Somewhat
stylized, but handsome nonetheless. I was in Long Grove for the annual
Strawberry Festival so I didn't have a scale ruler along, but I asked the
clerk to measure one of the four story Parisian structures, which turned out
to be 4" tall including a small chimney. All were $35.00 each.
