The heavy glasses on the table mght prove to be the very first obstacle to having this hobby into my later years..... 

 

No way!! You have a lot of time left to design and get someone to construct a motorized/hydrolic mechanism to lift the glass at the touch of a button. It seems elaborate but not much more than what you already have. And you can spread the cost out over the time it takes you to actually get old, which is considerable!

That Aoshima parking garage is really awesome. I could have recalled i saw one set on Mandarake recently, but i guess it was snapped up so quickly it's gone now... 

 

That's a pity. I check from time to time. When I checked a couple of days ago I came across an Aoshima apartment building. Also sought after and out of production. So there's still hope.

I've had glasses all my life and I've wondered what would happen. I'm doing just fine and I will be 70 next March. As long as you don't have Cataracts or Glaucoma you should be OK. A big key is shading your eyes from the intense summer sun with sun glasses and a wide brim hat. A bigger problem for me may be arthritis in my hands.

JR meant the glass plates that are on top of his layout as his layout is nested inside a table.

I've wanted to get one of those Aoshima parking buildings for a long time. I'm not sure if I saw it first on your layout or on Quinntopia. I'm pretty sure they don't make them anymore

Yes, no longer listed on the Aoshima website which is a bit sad. Looks like a lovely model but a little short lived.

Well the parking structure was first released a decade ago, yes it’s been awhile. They did rerelease it once and it even made it over to some us shops, pretty universal parking structure.
