Be sure to click on Paper models on the right hand side--63! pages of great modeling. Seems to be a big thing in Europe.

Ah Herb, isn't that supposed to be "left hand" side. L:

And there we have it folks. Better looking models than some of the plastic ones I've seen.

Gee, I don't know Bernd

I clicked om ''categories'' on the left, which brought me to a page with 3 columns. Top of the right hand column was ''paper''. Then again I am running Windows 2 ½

I think

Well, to further confuse things, I clicked "categories" at top left and "paper" showed up at top right. 63 pages of them. But I use LINUX THE GREAT, so my mileage certainly varies :<;). Jose official supplier of fun and controversy.

You missed the point entirely. Yes, today's stuff is far more accurate and ready to run. Kits are not what they used to be as far as demanding skills, and the quality is better, but the price paid is far higher.

Also missing is creativity and imagination because everything is laid out neatly for you to do or you buy it R-T-R. You are limited to what is available because most modern day model railroaders are missing the skills we old guys developed. Today's model railroad is often built with a checkbook, while in the old days it was built with time.

And then, there is the satisfaction of actually building something on your own. Sometimes COMPLETELY on your own and often using what is now known as "available materials" modeling. We knew it as scrounging materials and scratch building.

Is one era better than the other? Probably not, they are too different to compare accurately. But for we "oldsters" it was the best of times, so just let us "wax nostalgic" from time to time.[toast]

And then go explore the rest. Jose.

Jose,

I guess there's a couple of ways to arrive at that other web page. When you click "paper" under the  "Posted by Tanya" you get there too. :)
