BASICS FOR BEGINNERS are articles that we feel contain some of the information that any beginner should know when he or she is building that first or second model railroad (there just may be a few things that the "experts" can learn about up-to-date mod eling methods, too). NEW MODELING TECHNIQUES are actually tested methods of making or improving models. We call them "new" because they probably will be new to most of you. These are the articles we feel are best-suited to "intermediate-level" model railroaders. FOR EXPERIENCED MODELERS articles designed for those who have developed their skills in the hobby by successfully assembling and paint ing several of the "Craftsman"-type kits. It is assumed that the modeler who follows these articles knows the basics of the hobby: painting, decal-application, simple soldering, etc., etc... We hope to make the hobby more interesting and a whole lot less of a mystery for the newcomer with these labels.We do the same thing when we show EVERY step. Please, experts, be patient and remember what it was Hke when you were learning . . .

Modelers' tricks are just what the name impHes; special techniques that make a particular aspect of model building easier, faster, less expensive, more realistic and (in many cases) a combination of all four! These tricks are applic able to A NY model that uses similar materials and that is why we lable them as "modelers' tricks". If, for example, Goldberg's "Super Jet" cement works well to attach a plastic smokestack to a roof, it (the 'trick' technique) will work equally as well to attach a plastic air horn to a plastic diesel. The "TRICK" logo will help you to spot helpful techniques even if the particular project does not interest you at the moment
