....and just when I had decided to give up on them they just sent me the best issue yet.

The Kadee coupler story is very basic but if I hadn't found all this out myself that's the article I would have turned to. Just the right photos and not real technical. It's a hobby after all.

The master modeller clearly deserves it. Just the right story.

I can sometimes pass over the 'layout stories' and just check out the captions and pics. Not this one. Clearly not my type of railroad but I had fun reading every word because it was just so darn interesting. Great layout! Great fun.

The metal foil story was timely. I was going to try that when I say a similar article but this one convinced me I should have a try.

WOW! That CN GP38! What a great effort. I spent months building mine and I didn't even come close to the professionalism I can see in that model. Congratulations. Now I have to try again. @$&%%!?*%
On that topic: Now I KNOW there is a market out there for that cab. :D

I usually just file these magazines away after a quick look. This one will get dog eared on top of the pile.

I really think GR has been improving, do to the great contributions from members here.
I would like to see more prototype modeling in the garden articles, from the adaption point of view.
K strong, Marty Cozad and Tom Farin come to mind of great adaption of prototypes in the garden and or outdoors.

I really like all the modeling articles they've had lately, especially the how-to's. Great stuff! But I'm deeply disappointed that they've dropped the photo contest. That was one of my favorite features, and I was looking forward to entering this year.

I am still eagerly awaiting my copy to arrive at my local newsagents along with its sister magazine Classic Trains. Our summer arrived just over a week ago so, like Tom, I am busy running trains. :D

I think the current issue is good, too. I'm working harder with plants this year and trying to make stuff out of garbage (OK, baby fomula cans) and GR is helping me with both of those aspects.

Mark, if you're using the plastic Gerber containers, they're FANTASTIC for keeping screws and other bits, as well as mixing paints. They stack, so they take up much less room on the shelf until used, too. The glass jars are nice for storing liquids long-term, as they seal better than the plastic ones, but are harder to keep in large quantities because of the room they take up.

Later,

K

My issue arrived last week. i don;t even remember what day? Anyhow it travelled with me to Kehonksen Ny Friday night and spent the day in the hotel room. I did grab it once and then put it back down as I rushed off to do somehting else again. Packed up and drove home Sunday. I've still not cracked the cover! (sigh)
