Hello from a refugee from the Yahoo Boards! I'm looking for more real model-building and a little less B.S. I am 73, have been modeling since about age 8. In real life, I'm a retired CPA; I live with my wife Maria and four Transylvanian Hounds. Other hobbies include street rodding, history and breeding our dogs.

I'm now primarily in On30, because of the kit-bashing possibilities. I've also been in HO, 7mil (British O scale), American and European tinplate and coarse scale. But having reached my limit in modeling a specific prototype as accurately as possible, I'm enjoying the artistic freedom that comes with kit-bashing and the low cost of Bachmann products.

I hope to contribute some ideas soon!

Cheers,

Scott Maze

Scott,
 welcome aboard, I too prefer here to the Yahoo stuff that is passed as model railroading.  What section of the country do you live in?

Howdy Scott & welcome to the fun. What I love about this site is that you can post photos and captions like a magazine while Yahoo groups have photos buried somewhere and verbage in a different place. Yes, the Yahoo groups I visit are but 2 and one of those is about to be deleted...
Have fun & don't be shy like I am.

Woodie
