Re: Cars


Skill level?That's a tough one.I build almost anything that is appropriate for the era that I model.........roughly 1948 to 1950.I scratch build as well as build resin kits.If a model is prototypically accurate,or reasonably close,I may buy it.I pay strict attention to the built date,reweigh dates etc.My car fleet is culled from time to time to better represent the period that I model.I use wheel reports and ORERs as my shopping list.I also try to adhere to percentages of roads as to size and location.Quess that is somewhat of a long answer to a short question .Armand Premo
