Re: In defense of the blue box

I've been working on a couple of freight cars -- steam era, mind you
-- a building and some vehicles.
And I have reached the conclusion that I am truly mediocre.
But I'm still having fun.
I do aspire to do models like Bill Welch, Brian Banna, Mal Houck, Neil
Schofield and so many others, but I'm a long way off.

Tim,

Bravo! I have always assumed that we do model trains for fun! And I agree that not every model has to be a museum piece. If I approached it that way, I'd never get around to building my layout.

Some light reading... and yet I hope it strikes a good chord. I still assemble
blue box kits and I get a kick out of it. :-) Not every model needs to be a museum
piece.
