STMFC Show & Tell Friday
Bill Lane <billlane@...>
Since my John Deere post was not the discussion inspiring post it could have
been, I'll pitch this one out.
The amount of information exchanged on a weekly basis in staggering to me. I
still can't get over the fact that more then one of you know how many
fattened cattle fit in a SPECIFIC stock car. That is just one of the many
obscure facts that have come and gone on this list. But what are you doing
with all this information? I know that many of you are avid and very skilled
modelers. However, I can't remember the last time I saw an "I just finished"
or "I am working on a _________" posting.
SO, I propose that once a week (Mike or Ben, pick a day please) should be
STMFC Show & Tell day. Make an official group declaration! I know that
making photo links is not possible for everyone. Photos would help, but if
not, throw out 3 sentences of what you are working on. This came up on the S
Scale list a week ago. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/S-Scale via "What is on
your workbench?" It was nice to see what others were doing.
That is the great thing about PRR-Pro. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PRRPro
It makes you work on a project and talk about it.
This is also as a result of the upcoming Prototype Modelers meetings. You
are happy with your own work until you go to one of them. THEN you get to
see what others have done. Since there is no contest (at least at the meet I
was at in the spring) it would not matter to get an early peek of your
Naperville model. Besides, not everyone will be able to attend. Share your
good work with the rest of us!
