Doing research is also a skill in and of itself. There's more to it than just grabbing
a camera and note pad and heading out with a full tank of gas. It requires some
practice and some intuition, as well as patience and persistence. In terms of
priorities, it's not so much about doing the deed but having to learn a whole new set of
skills. Or, I can do anything I want in my life, but I can't do everything I want.
2011 may go down as the year Andy started his layout. I don't want it to be the year
Andy spent all his vacation time chasing H10 data for a car that didn't get made, while
his basement is still an unfinished concrete cavern of unbuilt kits. Perhaps if I do my
own job, by the time I have that Gibson-Osborn coal connection built, someone will have
some H10s for me to put on it. I'd certainly accept them - and pay for them - in RTR
form if they are of Tangent or EXR quality (EXR done right, not their shakey-box). In
the mean time, it costs me nothing to keep mentioning it, although I'll probably get
more interest on the BBFCL and MFCL.
