Are you a beginner with questions about getting started in the hobby? Are you an experienced modeler needing help with specific topics? Either way, Modelers Aid can provide you with answers.
The Modelers Aid team offers a Help Desk to share model railroad tips and techniques. See us at the Annual Fall Show, Annual Spring Flea Market, Div 7 Monthly meetings and other local model railroad events. We'd love to visit and talk with you!
Pat Homan 513-861-2057 and Bruce Knapp 513-941-2713 lead our friendly team of helpers. Please call or email them to get answers or contacts for your modeling questions, or to volunteer your expertise.
We have a large video lending library available free to Division 7 members. It contains dozens of commercial DVD and VHS tapes on a variety of railroad and model railroad subjects, including "how-to" topics. Email or call Kevin Orcutt at (513) 934-4096 or see him at the video library table at our monthly meetings. Kevin is also looking for a few wayward tapes needing to be returned. Please look over the attached list.
Please see the helpful modeling articles below. These are uniquely authored by Division 7 experts and friends.
