Re: Just FYI: selling on Ebay...

It is very interesting that we have two camps developing in either end of the
hobby....those that want extremely technically accurate models but do not
care for weathering...and those that are happy paying gobs of cash for an $8
Athearn car that has been weathered to the extreme. And to think that I just
disposed of all my long-ago-purchased, poorly detailed, but heavily weathered
Athearn/MDC/etc cars!

So even expensive custom-weathered RTR isn't actually ready to run!

I was just amazed at how much decal film is VERY clearly visible in the
enlarged photos...Doesn't even look like the slightest attempt was made to
hide or minimize it...As amateur as my skills are, I could probably do at
least as good as that (but then I'd have an excuse).
