Thanks for the kind words...that is quite a group to
be included with...not sure I deserve that.
You ask if it is all worth it? I guess that really is
a personal decision, but I will tell you I modeled in
Hon3 for many years. I bought my first C-16 brand new
from Westside for $49...that should give you a clue!
About 7 years ago, while still firmly entrenched in
Hon3, I built some some PBL kits for a friend. One
month later...all the Hon3 was on consignment..and
being "traded" for Sn3. I will echo the others
sentiments... I have never looked back. I think one
thing that perhaps has not been mentioned in the other
posts is that, at least for me, it seems to be
"easier" to do better work, in a larger scale. As a
result..I have a renewed interest in modeling.
As far as expense...There is perhaps more of a "bite"
to get started...but unless you are the type that just
has to have every new release, I think you will find
it is not really anymore expensive in the long run.
Have you noticed the price of the quality HO cars
lately? Just about the same as PBL's...And as far as
scratch building...I don't see much difference in cost
on my layout...but I do see better models.
Take the jump! Betcha' can't build just one...
