Glad to see a freelancer speaking up! I belong in that category but don't always let folks know, I have been beaten up for it in the past :wink: !

I hope you find the site useful, and if you don't please let me know as I am always looking to improve.

I am a protolancer (I freelance the prototypes that I like) and proud of it. This is a good thing since I can have Canadian National run say SD70MACs or FTs or I could have say CSX owning a full fleet of Steam Locomotives that they run everyday. I do try to stay somewhat true (might have a slight varyation or two in the colors) to the various prototypes paint schemes so you wont see a Neon Pink and purple polka-dotted CSX locomotive, it will be one of the paint schemes that they have used over time.

In addition to protolancing I have my own fictional Leasing Company, Dragonsfang Leasing (report marking DFLX), so I could also explain the oddball locomotive on my prototypes roster, the have leased it. I am currently thinking of using my Leasing Companies primary paint job as being one similar to Montana Rail Link or the old Canadian National Green and Yellow.

I applaud you for having fun.
That's what I like about this hobby.
I'm not a rivet counter and I don't get all tensed up.

I do love this hobby and enjoy helping others into it.

I developed a new product line for N scale and did it as a
labor of love. I hope to be able to grow the line and make
it easy for many to ease into the hobby (especially N scale)
and build a layout or two or three.

If anyone cares to see what I do please visit my
website at www.shape-master.com
When you get there click on the N scale modeling button.

Take care and share your ideas and thoughts of fun here.
