We are finishing up the March/April issue of The O Scale Resource. This month we explain and show every step of using a Circut cutting machine to scratch build a small building. Along with this step by step article is a 25 minute video split into sections covering each step. Finishing post production today. Lots more to come!
The February/March issue of S Scale Resources on-line magazine will be available next week. Our "New Tracks" article is featuring a contest sponsored by Wiseman Model Services as well as introductions to possible mentors to help improve your building skills. Also Scratchbuilding a PRR GLa Twin-bay Hopper - Over 90 pictures and 40 pages to guide you through this build!
The new issue of The O Scale Resource is almost ready. Our trip to Phoenix put us behind a week so it will be like a Christmas present on Christmas!
The “NEW TRACKS” site is meant to be a place where highly experienced knowledgeable model railroaders can become a mentor to help less experienced modelers gain the skills and techniques of building a model, as well as the confidence in their ability to begin a modeling project or even complete their own railroad empire.
Jim Kellow MMR 202 can personally vouch for the value of a mentor to teach you to be the modeler you want to be. Jim wrote about his personal experience in ...the first “New Tracks” article in the Nov/Dec 2017 O Scale Resources online magazine.
This site, we hope, will become the premier place for mentors and modelers who want to learn from them to meet. If you need model railroad building help to become the modeler you have always dreamed of being this is the site for you.
All scales are welcome because the skills and techniques of building a model railroad are basically the same for all scales. Most importantly the personal CONFIDENCE needed by a modeler to begin a building project is the same for all scales. The only way to get this confidence is by building, making mistakes and doing it again until it is done correctly. Having a mentor will make this learning period much shorter and more fun. Good Luck and Happy Building!
Mentoring articles will appear in both The O Scale Resource and The S Scale Resource
