Am I seeing this right ? A doll-house sized model of a mainframe ?
How cool is that ?

Now if you could only get the big one for $100, or, assuming HO scale, $8700.

Apparently, by today's asking prices for mainframe miniatures you got a great deal :)

Not sure about what they're made out of but do they feel just like regular plastic car models? That model glue I think somewhat melts the plastic to get it to bond together.
