My problem is that I don't change scales. I just add to them. And this happened before I had a hobby shop too.

Trying to concentrate on 2 or 3 scales now. Have sold most of my Z scale and HO. So, that's a start. Wink

Hello to all from another country Victorian,

I guess I'm fascinated by small scale things, I like larger models too but the really small stuff, for some reason holds a great deal of interest.

I used to model HO before turning to N during the 1990s and I am VERY keen about working in Three (mm) scale which I'm sure will be quite challenging and I also like the novelty (isn't that tiny train sooooo cute?) value. I like the idea of Railcars and Railmotors (Aussie prototype of course) and I also like the T-Track style modular system that is being considered.

I also model small warships (coastal forces types) and the vast majority of my models are 600 scale, designed for wargaming. A couple of years ago I 'discovered' card models and this is proving to be VERY fascinating indeed. I will now direct you to the "Modelling in T" thread and the heading "T Gauge in OZ".

Another potential VR T gauge modeller? It's getting interesting. One has to wonder what is going to happen after Sandown when the modelling public here is formally introduced to T gauge. Very Happy

Just one small point though. T is 3mm gauge. If you refer to 3mm scale, people will tend to associate that with TT (12 mm gauge), which, for the British models at least, was and still is known as 3mm scale (3mm to the foot).

I have similar feelings about working in this very tiny scale. The fascination of working models in a scale that, until now, would only have seen static models. The track pieces are actually smaller than the Hornby scale track planning templates. I have a couple of train-shaped pens (Japanese prototype as it happens - the steam loco is the cap). They are larger than T gauge trains.
