Train too small for fleas

David Smith has built a trainset that we believe would be too small even for fleas. This 1:35,000 scale train runs through a scenic countryside just 2cm across.

Thanks to Lee Clarke and Sean Fallon from Gizmondo for the link

Fleas Wanted

The Flea Circus Research Library recieves regular emails from people looking for real fleas for different purposes from testing new optical equipment to TV shows.

Today's email was a little different in that Melissa was looking for a model flea.
A few years back Disney and Pixar made a PT Flea character from the Bugs Life film. The model opens up to reveal the acts including a cannon and a tightrope act.

PT Flea Toy

If anyone has one of these to donate or sell, please get in touch and I'll pass your details on to Melissa.
