I think one of the biggest impediments to modeling (as opposed to model railroading which in most circumstances involves little to no modeling since most model railroaders are not acutally modelers, but screwer-togetherers and even that is a dying breed) is the "analysis-paralysis" dilemma whereby one tries to come up with the most foolproof method of tackling a project before commencing. Unfortunately, the closets, basements, etc. of America are full of such uncommenced efforts. Just do it. It takes a few broken Athearn shells to make an omelette.
