QUOTE (Gwent rail @ 19 Jun 2006, 18:49) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I think your ideas are spot on Denis, I too don't want to see a "scratch building elite" forum develop, where the emphasis is just on locos and rolling stock. I've seen too many instances of modelling snobbery over the years - more than enough to last the rest of my life! Let's encourage the "have a go at something different" approach I say. I think "builders corner", or something similar, is appropriate and will prove popular. Check out the amount of replies already if you don't believe me. Can't wait to see a strong forum where good ideas and projects can be shared for the benefit of all.


Thats only going to happen if we let it. I for one would have no issues about chipping in about my pathetic attempts to scratch build stuff. If some folks want to get all snobby about their hand built brass masterpieces, I'm sure theres a few of us who would drag them back down to earth with our amatuer attempts to knock stuff up from card and plastic. I'm actually researching Whisky distilleries at the moment, (doesn't get better than that) with a view to scratch building one for my layout so I'm all lined up to stick my oar in.

Funny you should mention it but I am coming back to Scotland for a month and this is high on the agenda, assuming the mrs can be talked into it. Obviously this is a fact finding mission
and any taste testing
would be completely secondary, but crucial,
part of the trip.
