My point was that those old larger-scale curmudgeons will never recognize N scale as anything but a toy scale. Even if shown models like what Max builds, they will find an excuse to dismiss them.

I hear many positive comments at shows but there always seems to be that one guy that gives the backhanded compliment of  “That’s pretty nice…..for N scale”.  The best response I’ve heard to that is “I like to think it’s nice for any scale”.

I appreciate seeing your work Max. It encourages me to push my own abilities.

Its why I don't mention scale when sharing what I've been working on out and about. Catches people off guard when they do ask though. Lots are either stuck in still believing N is as it was in the 70s and others refuse to evolve from it.

Reminds me of the 1960s vintage "lady in the shower" that Walthers used to sell for its HO passenger car interiors. If you aren't even supposed to see it, why model it?

Because there are a lot of creepy, thirsty dudes in this hobby.
