Exclamation Jim James in FSM!

Anybody besides me notice the nifty modeling tip in the current issue of FineScale Modeler that was submitted by our own Jim James? It's in the "Tips and Techniques" section and well worth knowing. But you'll have to pick up a copy of the mag to see it - I'm not going to spill Jim's tip here.

Yes I did and the techniques he used for the grabs on the moonbus is the same one used to make grab irons and bends in hand rails on Locomotives and freight cars.

I think that was Jim Small.

I have, however, had a tip, a photo and a letter published in FSM. I also had an article accepted but never published.

Am I famous yet?

Jim

Been there, that not done. FSM is very good about paying up front for an article, but reeeeaaallll sssssllllooooooowwwwwww to publish them. Don't the editors realize the value of bragging rights?

This came in handy, I was helping a friend restore a beat up HO scale C,N&W locomotive that he got for next to nothing at the local hobby shop, I picked up the FSM issue the same day he got the locomotive. Saved me a lot of time, I will also use this tip the same way as illustrated in the FSM issue.

I had seen that tip but didn't know of the connection so now I do. Congragulations Jim, I think I may consider submitting some of my personal tips. And now looking through your photos section I can see you are very prolific. Do you attend the local Orlando club meetings or enter the local IPMS contests? I am just 50 miles east of you so need to say hello sometime at one of these events. Also, the IPMS nats are in Orlando in 2012 which will be really cool and I will be retired then so can spend as much time there as I like.
