    Hi jon,

    I'd be worried about being overrun by N-scalers,
    but they got such little bitty feet!!!!!!:) :) :)

    "Short people got no body.... "etc. :D :D :D :D

    Don't worry, the N Scalers are half our size, we still take up more room in the guage than they do :thumb:

    Good luck to you HOers. I guess us N folks just talk too much. Remember we have to have the same size aisles and our hands are the same size as yours.

    hehehe Thanks Robin, I guess most of the HO folks are keeping quiet so on average, with my big mouth, we'll come out the same as other scales :D :D :D

    Gee, I sure hope this doesn't turn into a scale vs. scale LPB fight! I can see dozens of N scale LPBs crawlin up a G guys leg and biting him all over like fire ants or tie him up at night:sleeping: :eek: :rolleyes:

    Hey, I have enough trouble with OO modellers.:rolleyes: If you guys feel you are being displaced by N-gaugers, you could always come to the UK.:D :D :D

    I think it's just N scale is half the size of HO so them N scalers just get done faster because they only do half the work. So then they have more time to yap on the net. I can say this because this is an HO forum here and no N-gaugers should have the time to read this unless it was true (so if you take offence that provers my theory). I never have time to read the N scale forum. Why should they be reading ours, well Robin? :D :D :D Are n-gaugers paranoid? Do they care what us HOers might be saying about them behind their backs?:D :D :D :confused: But really it's them slot car racers we need to worry about. Them and these folks http://www.starshipmodeler.com/index.htm who will turn all our trains to slag with their phasers. FRED

    I took one look at that homepage and saw "Star trek". That was enough for me!:D
    Are they just the same as portrayed in that episode of The Simpsons? "BI-MON-SCI-FI-CON" and all that.
    And my Brother has the cheek to call ME a nerd!:mad:

    LOL dash! If you think about it N is about 1/2 HO in linear measurement, but about the 1/4 the area!

    Actually it's lenght, width, and height which means 1/2 cubed or 1/8. But I wasn't gonna point that out because I'm not wanting to be labeled a grouchy old ho.:D And the link to starship modellers has some good How Tos. They scratch everthing they build. FRED

    Does that mean it takes 2-4 N Scalers to equal each of us HO Scale guys?

    They are not only half the length but half the width and half the height. That means we could fit 8 of them into the space that one of us takes up.

    Personally I'm glad that no '0'ers are here to try and make us feel small.
