Now that's just silly.
I have brought my models to a PCRRHS convention plus RPM meets for all to see. I also think that posting models to the PCModelers group exposes the models to a much wider audience than the PCRRHS attendees.
It is one thing to nitpick but another thing to point out some problems AND show how to fix them.
While I still think Athearn did a pretty good job with the Penn Central F-units I am replacing the Genesis shell with a Highliner shell. Why? Well one reason is that I already have a couple of Penn Central F-units (Highliner shells on recycled Stewart mechanisms) and I guess I was more careful in the construction of the Highliner shell than the Chinese assembly line people were. I am more pleased with my own constructed models than the RTR version and what's wrong with that?
p.s. - Bob that's a great looking model and hope to see more from you. I have always enjoyed you Southern, NW, and NS modeling!!
