Re: RI 133510 from flour loading topic (Look At The Boards)

Bill Daniels <billinsf@...>

the problem isn't with the cars, it's the manufacturer's perception of what their customers want. I believe it's been tried before, but nobody bought the cars... so they now exagerate the gaps between the boards, as well as exagerating the grain (notice any visible grain in the RI car? Me neither.) Only very heavily weathered cars show grain.

And imagine how much less perceptible the boards were when the car was new ca. 12 years earlier.  I have some 1920s builder's photos where the individual boards are virtually impossible to make out.

Andy, I gather you share my frustration with the majority of SS car models out there.  I will refrain from ranting, but this is an area of much-needed improvement in available prototype models, plastic and resin.
