I’ll point out in this post a source of excellent modeling information: Facebook. Facebook has groups, just like yahoogroups. Once you are logged in to Facebook, you can search for groups – try “O Scale” without the quotes in the search bar. People who post to the groups usually include photos, many of works in progress. Posting something is simple – take a photo of your work with your smartphone then post it immediately to Facebook with comments.
There is some nice modeling being done by folks who are new to O scale. Check it out. And don’t worry about getting bogged down in someone’s new pet trick – once your are in a group there is none of that and no advertising.
