Re: Special Run Mentality

What is the "special run mentality?" Why is it doomed to fail?

I was wonderin' the same thing Jerry. My biggest gripe with IM over
the years has been their willingness to put bogus paint schemes on
their models for special orders, while neglecting their own product
line (e.g. AAR 10'6" 1940 box car) and exploiting the large number
of actual prototypes for their models. Maybe Marty meant something
along those lines, that the best way to grow the bizness is not to
get distracted by the specialty trade? (And I doubt that Marty was
referring to the Amarillo museum and Des Plaines Hobbies which are
willing to sponsor new tooling.)
