Re: New Accurail Offset twin hopper
I certainly agree with you Denny. I think I see two things at worktoggle quoted message Show quoted text
here. First, on an operating layout of good size, it really is
difficult to make every car be of star quality. Sometimes you need
that supporting cast of lesser quality and large numbers.
Secondly, I'm thinking that most of the plastic kit makers are looking down to road to offering todays tooling as RTR someday.
As modelers we don't put much value on the time we expend on
adding details like grabs and steps. A manufacturer looking at
the cost of offering a RTR item needs to design with economy
of assembly in mind. Not that I'm suggesting the makers should
make models that are unsuitable for users with higher standards.
Just that I percieve the largest market as middle of the road.
I won't buy junk but I can't afford to buy $40 and $50 cars by
the dozen. I appreciate my Kadee cars but I'll buy more Accurail
and Atlas than Kadee.
