Re: Built-Up Resin Kits
I have intended to contact you thus week but lately it seems that when I get up on the morning I am already two hours behind.
I see that Dan Smith contacted you on the Intermountain roofs for the CB&T refers. I emailed him this morning asking if he might gave a few.
In the past few years I have come to realize that I could never build all the kits that I have. Yet I have rarely bought a kit that I didn't want. Thus I have bought some built up models from modelers that I hold in high esteem and passed the kits on to friends on the mainland.
That takes us to the Bill Welch collection. I was actually casting a net this morning. I has heard that Ted Culotts was named executor from Bill's estate ( at least the railroad part). Ted seems to be in his second "Dark Phase" so who knows what is happening.
I made my airline reservations for Collinsville last week. United's website and I are ar two ends of tue spectrum but I got it done . Several years ago I was charged twenty five times for my itinerary. Rectifying a $35,000.00 airline bill was an adventure.

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. :-)
