Fw: Re: [Z_Scale] I changed my vote...
- For the sake of the continued growth of this segment of the hobby, I
hope that MT, if they elect to venture into this area at all, stick
with their initial idea of offering built-up structures. There's a
definite need for more emphasis in that area, especially for the
benefit of people who are at, or considering, the entry stages of the
I have a good number of those cast structures in Z that Marklin once
offered (perhaps they still do), and I enjoy painting those items and
sometimes adding a few details here and there. I've also constructed
more than a few Z kits in my time, but have often wondered why someone
wasn't doing more in the area of ready-to-go accessories for this scale.
I'll be one of the first in line for the Conrail GEEP; plan to get the
CP Rail and Chessie versions soon (already have the Pennsy); have
bought a ton of that great MT track (and will invest heavily in
switches); certainly have a lot of their rolling stock; and would also
be a customer for any buildings they produce.
In short: I figure they're on the right track (pun intended) and are
demonstrating some real leadership in moving this segment of the hobby
forward at a pretty good clip.
