There will always be the moaners and disparagers, but I think they would soon get put in their place if they tried it here. We have one of the most fair minded group of people it's possible to meet, but being of the fair minded persuasion they don't go overboard in shouting their praises, the sort of person from whom a nod of the head is a great compliment. So take a few nods you've earned it.
Indeed, most are honest and fair in comments, and I appreciate the constructive criticism when their is any, you do get the odd person who likes to put people down who are most likely armchair critics like the chap on the Dapol group, I suspect he's not even a modeller, more of a keyboard warrior.
Some of my work is now in magazines which is nice, and helps others try different things or see some things that they might not be aware of. In a free magazine "The railway magazine guide to modelling" been some small modelling projects, and I think Decembers? or January there's a long boring article about making your own transfers.
And in Hornby mag probably the layouts last appearance as its pretty much shot now, but shows off some of the newer stock, so a nice send off in a way.
There's 2 - 3 new 3D prints which are next to go forward for test prints, LNWR, and a revised GN Saloon, plus I have started looking at helping with those with Mazak rot, by using the Bulleid build seen on here to use 3D prints as casting masters so that's nice too.
