Rod and Woodie

That was written very much tongue in cheek.

While I respect those like Chuck Doan who can create a near perfect diorama--it is, after all, only a work of art.

Those that have--dare I say-- fun playing with the trains on layouts that they largely scratch built. are my kind of folks.

I suppose that I could write paragraphs more, but I have several pair of shoes that are calling me with their compelling odor.

Masters.. There are all sorts of people that are called that by all sorts of people and for all sorts of reasons. I think you guys here are masters. Why? Because you do exceptional work and you share your techniques with the masses. Lets face it, most of us will never reach the pinnacle of modeling realism but we can still make convincing models of our favorite pieces of the world and we enjoy that endeavor. For some, that enjoyment comes from sweating every tiny detail right down to flies on a dog pile. That's admirable and fun to see but those guys are a little crazy, IMHO. But hey, that's what they like. Many of the people here like to scratch build and play with their creations on their layout instead of sweating the details the others love. Are they any less of a master of the hobby? Nah, just different.

Anyway, yes that stuff in the website above is amazing but I wouldn't enjoy creating that level of detail. It requires more patience than I have and a steadier hand than I have and a greater desire to be holed up in my shop than I have but I bet I could smoke those guys in a round of "all up, last down" and that's what is most important... to me. ;)

Tilemaster invented the term masters. Altough I do have a place on Mario's site and I do feel flattered to be amongst other great modelers I never see my self as a master in modeling...my 2 cents

Would this game have anything to do with the consumption of grain-based liquids?

Golly Herbert...the "infusion" shown is Jose Cuervo tequilla and it is not made from grains but agave cactus! Pure-deee nasty stuff (I know) which made me act crazie and Missy take the car keys away. However, the golden liquid is indeed from the Websites of the Masters...master distillers. Now, we're back on point here.

Now there may be a drinking game called "All up last down" but I ain't never played it. Heck, I haven't played a drinking game since I was a snot nosed kid. The game I was referring to is one where everybody launches their R/C gliders within 2 seconds of each other and the last plane to land wins.

I wouldn't mind a small sippin' glass of some Patron Silver after we're all done.

We have a couple of "games" that are played here--skeet, trap, and sporting clays. Involves shooting at clay disks flung into the air, with a shotgun.

Wonder if the two sports can be combined-----:doh:
