    Thanks Toto, Gary and Andy,
    Andy.........chain in N gauge..???????......good luck with that mate.......:avatar::avatar::avatar::avatar:

    Yes thanks guys........don`t know why I put that long winded speech back there......guess it was just time to clear the air.
    I remember a long time ago being intimidated by the skills of excellent modellers in the hobby and thinking that I could never do that.
    I had these people on a pedestal and mind you,they deserved to be there.
    The thing that you realize, after you see these people cock up once or twice, is that they are just human like the rest of us. They have put in the time to learn and acquire skills, and after considerable experience and recognition, they pop up in modelling mags for the plebs, who think they are some sort of genii.
    Well the simple fact of the matter is that we can all improve and railway modellers are always learning and improving on what they can do. It goes with the hobby.
    So I just wanted to clear the fog and say to anyone who may be starting out in this hobby.....you can do it !!!!.....just keep listening and learning and one day people will be listening and learning from you. You will carry the baton handed down. That seems to be the way it goes in this hobby.
    There are...........I`m doin` it again.?????? :facepalm:

    Absolutely spot on with your last post Gormo. :thumbup:

    When I think back, I started modelling again about 7, maybe 8 years ago, prior to reading your threads on RMweb and then YMRC. I learned from those that I held in high esteem as well. Allan Downes (RMweb, YMRC), Chubber (Doug - RMweb & YMRC), Phil C (YMRC), John Dew (YMRC) and many other modellers on various forums I frequented. I never thought that I would be modelling in a similar vain as those guys, (although I think I'm not there yet), but to be recognised by our local modellers and to be invited to exhibit, must mean I'm doing something right.

    I too have a lot more to learn, this is why I take part in various forums/groups, to learn from those who have been doing it longer than myself. I know I'm not the only one here that is part of some of the facebook groups out there, but I am learning from these groups as well. What I learn, I can share with every one here.

    P1MRC is great for this, I have learnt much and hopefully taught much and will continue to do so. I have to thank Toto for providing such a great platform for sharing the collective knowledge that has made P1MRC what it is today.

    Thanks Toto. :tophat:

    Cheers, Gary.

    :avatar: you guys are reducing me to tears here and I don' have a crying emoji.:avatar: not bad for a forum that started off as a gang hut to keep a dozen or so guys together. We are very fortunate to have a great talent pool covering all aspects of the hobby.
    The various social media sites also act as a great introduction to the forum. The bottom line is ...... it's only what you want to make it.

    So any newer members looking in here, it doesn't matter how experienced you are, it's all about joining in and asking. We try to keep the style light and enjoyable as it should give the confidence to jump in and have a bit of fun. Once you find your posting feet, the confidence to either ask questions, make your own contributions will come. Everybodies participation is appreciated whether it' just a hi how are you doing or a post on one of your projects.

    Most of all ...... it should be enjoyable and a bit fun.

    Cheers

    Toto

    :avatar: I've tried them. They are an acquired taste. I can handle them but wouldn't go out my way for them. You could maybe dip them in your curry. :avatar::tophat:Welcome to uk snack foods :avatar:
