As might be evidenced by a lack of modeling posts, I've not been working in T these past several months. I've also noticed the same for a number of other once-enthusiastic T Gaugers, who have since allowed their blogs to die. Much as I hate to admit it, I think that I may have reached the end of my active T Gauge days as well.
It's sad, especially as it really lit my fire for a while; I think my high point was making the functional crossing flasher (above). But the long dry spell in new product releases and a desire to become more focused in my modeling have together pulled me away from continuing any serious work in T.
I wouldn't go so far as to say I'm never going to model in T again; it's impossible to predict that random whims and fancies won't bring me back somewhere down the road. Perhaps a combination of interesting new products and/or life circumstances might inspire me to dabble in 1:450 once more.
I will continue to maintain my website and the forum—I owe it to those modelers I've helped break into the scale with these resources. I may even continue to purchase new items so that I can continue building the technical reference that I've started. And I'm sure I'll be inspired to continue posting here once in a while, so don't expect this blog to dry up and blow away anytime soon!
