Exact scale, fully detailed hand-made models. Link goes straight to trains, but there are MANY more. I'm not promoting them (probably we can't all of us together afford ONE) but the level of detail is astounding:

Look, enjoy and cry.

I’m not even sure they’re in business anymore as I think everything they had is all sold out now.

I’ve never seen any of their RR models or even talked with anyone who has, but I HAVE seen their WW2 Jeep model: http://www.fineartmodels.com/Jeep.html It was in the basement/studio of aviation artist Jim Deitz. I think he said he’d gotten it in a trade, and was in a glass case at the time. This was a while back, probably about 1999 or 2000.

The photos really don’t do this justice as it’s truly breathtaking. It’s the most impressive Jeep model I’ve ever seen. That said, I think they retailed for more than a real WW2 Jeep would have cost you at the time (way more than I paid for mine, that’s for sure). There were a few tiny moving parts nobody could make in that scale (such as the glove box lid latched with a rotating tab, something Jeeps didn’t have) but otherwise it was amazing.
There's one on ebay right now: http://www.ebay.com/itm/252965899611
