Gotta call you out on that one...  He has.  Quite often.  I'm only one recipient of Victor's direct assistance.

A number of us asshats attended Victor's steam tuning clinic at the 2011 NSE convention in Harrisburg.  One of the highlights of the old A-board for me were Victor's exacting reviews of new steam mechanisms and performance.  He was not the only one to offer that, sure, but he added to the collective in a positive way.

You can certainly call him or anyone out on their opinion, but suggesting Victor hasn't offered something to his fellow modelers is simply untrue.

Jason, youll never meet the standards of a "MODEL" railroader that doesnt model anything. Some just cant appreciate what goes into true modeling when they dont have the ability or ambition to do it themselves. Thats why they b!tch and moan when what they want isnt the newest latest greatest model to hit the market. Theres no use in beating a dead horse in constant need of geritol.

wow.

Hi Dave Vollmer

I gotta tell you, I have no idea why I got those two responses from superturbine.
I'll puzzle on it some more.

I also must thank you for the defense.
Few people seem to understand the amounts of time and
variety of skills and re-do-it efforts that are
required to get a loco to run well.
It eats into the PRR H-10 scratch building time like you just would not believe.

One of the hidden out comes from my tinkering on your loco is that I have a much better idea
of what to do to get a PSC k4s running reliably.
I recently got a brass k4s to practice on.

*sigh* and it needs painting... dangit.  oh well I guess I get to build my character.

Victor if you are in any way hurt by my defence of your attacks of building a casting for my self I am truely sorry.  So, lets try a little reset.  Lets see some pictures of the H-10 that you have been building.  Nothing but support from me.

I for one really appreciate the castings from Jason.  They are top-notch and really fill a nitch in N-scale.

Jason's beautiful castings and craftmanship allowed me to have not one but two models of the ATSF 3765 class engines. Will always be grateful for his work.

Jason, your work is magnificent, and while I for one am not desperate for a second K4 I really would like a much better looking H10sb than the one I was able to cobble together.  With deference to Victor's valid question of price point, I would in fact, be willing to spend decent coin on a boiler and tender casting for an H-class comparable in detail to your K4 and T1...  The same goes for an M1a/b shell for a Bachmann heavy 4-8-2 with 6-wheel trucks if you include a KW trailing truck frame.  Between your Pennsy work and the Shapeways thread on Trainboard I'm watching intently.  In the meantime I have enough Trix parts to do a traditional kitbash.

The big hole is, of course, the I1 2-10-0 as was mentioned earlier.
