Same debate, along with "too much Euro stuff" that was waging in the letters to the editor and a survey back at the inception of the magazine in the 1980s my friend.....plus ca change plus c'est la meme chose

Actually, the last few issues I have had were heavy on 1:29 stuff, probably why I do not have a subscripption, and have not had one since about 1990.

If anything, I think there might be a little bias against complex modeling articles, in favor of simpler "beginner" and "intermediate" level stuff. It seems like when they do run loco bashes, it's mainly some pics of the finished product, maybe a before and after shot, and a little text. There's not much detail about getting from "before" to "after".

Of course, that's just my impression.


Interesting OBSERVATION.......

....and it is unfortunate that many of the better modelling project and prototype magazines have died in the last few years.

What is really becoming unfortunate that when you pick up a 20+ year old railroad magazing, it is oftentimes more interesting than its modern counterpart.

..... and a demographic that "wants it now" ....







Well there you go. Extends way beyond the scope of this post too if you really look at it.

I am just happy to be doing someting I first thought of 20 years ago.
