Jimmy: I though the same thing! ! ! ! !  Members should be informed about
the history and the models they run. The society blew this one.

I guess they will not run a review on the Sunset Mollies because #433 had a
high headlight and the model come with a low one.

"When the model came out  Rivarossi/Hornby asked the Society to give our
blessings on the model and review the model in the "Arrow".  We refused,
telling the person who made the inquiry that there were too many incorrect
details on their model for the Society to accept."

Did Rivarossi/Hornby actually ask for "blessings"?

"One of the major points is that each of us must find his or her own
threshold of tolerance; that threshold will vary as an individual decides
what is "good enough" that he is satisfied, or at least not offended, by
what he sees in his basement."

Is it in the members best interests to refuse reviewing N&W/VGN models?
Would it not be better to give an unbiased review to 1.) inform the
membership what is available, 2.) Point out the pluses/minuses, and then,
let the member decide if the model is right for them?
