My career and hobby coincided

Kind of strange that my career in broadcasting was very cyclical. This appears to be the same with model railroading. We had a base of master model railroaders for decades. Bill McClanahan, John Allen, John Armstrong and others. There became mid-ground: David Frary, George Sellios, Lou Sassi over the past decade and now Pele Soeberg, Joe Fugate, Ted York and the like, represented on the right hand of the web site, with their works. The decades and age, brought us new masters of the art of model railroading. Who's next Rod Stewart?

When you think about techniques, they have come full circle. We are using Bill's zip texture process with "ground goop". We went through the cardboard strips and plaster cloth, to foam insulation panels. You gotta love it, as much as things change, they stay the same.
