Bill's models, was Re: [RealSTMFC] Built-Up Resin Kits
It is my understanding from a couple of members of this list that Bill’s models are in good hands and are being inventoried. I do not know if they will make it onto a platform, such as eBay or Stouts’ Auction (where Frank Peacock’s collection
was recently sold.)

Bill Welch was a meticulous person and planned ahead so I have not asked because I just assume that
he gave them away or turned them over to someone else. His collection was extremely impressive by the
early 1990's - after he'd been modeling only for a few years - so I imagine the final collection was just
incredibly wonderful models. Wherever they ended up I hope they are well cared for.

Bill Welch has ben a major player on the Prototype Community for over fifteen yearts. What has become of his collection on his passing? I hzave spoken to several members
who were involved in the Memoial Tribute to Bill and they have no idea. I had heard that some of his airplane models (Yes, he was into that as well) were sold at a prototype
meet. There has, however, been no mention to my knowledge as to what has happened to his marvelous freight cars.
Does anyone have any information?
