The reason I do not like the idea of a specific scale in the name of the group is that it may discourage other modelers from joining our little forum.
If we keep the name of the group genera, like NarrowGaugeModelRR or something like that we leave it open to all modelers who may be interested in narrow gauge.
There are lots of non scale specific groups out there filled with modelers working in all different scales. The reason for a scale specification is in the solving of problems related to modeling in any specific scale. There is very little in the way of products for us to rely on and there fore one of the main purposes of this group is to share modeling ideas with regard to supplies and techniques specific to this scale. We have a lot more in common with the half inch modelers than we do the HOn3 modelers. One to thirty two is a specific scale, but in the beginning we said anything close was welcome to join in. Fine Scale refers to track and wheel standards and has its history of origin in the 60's and 70's. In this group it was also a statement of intent to do fine quality modeling.
As to the Fine Scale Modelers VS the Just For Fun modelers, there is no conflict at all. We all make our models the way we like and no one way is better than the other.
It is fun, though for the two groups to poke a little fun at one another once in a while, just as long we remember we are kidding.
There is no right or wrong way to pursue a hobby. Hobbies are a totally personal matter.

You already know me and my opinions but here I think we need to balance a bit and find the middle way back. Your passion for "just fun" is simetric to other's passion for rivet counting. No difference at all. I hope this group will keep balancing both.
You know I realy love your work, but actualy I love Roy's, Jerry's, Bernard's, Marc's and Otto's (just to mention some) extremely precission as much. I've been learning for years from you all, lots of great things, and I would lie if I'd say I could chose.
I miss your incredible ethousiasm and also Jery's precission but can appreciate and enjoy both.
I've many excellent hours studying the scenes of Mogollon Ry, but also Jerry's implacable care for the tiniest details. After all you all seem to share the typical geniu's bad temper and intolerance.

Fine Scale? I thought it was Fun Stuff! I just looked and noticed that my scale ruler has warped so everything I have is a bit "off"...Oh well, it is still fun.
