I am not the most prolific of modellers, but once in a while I do get on with it. Not being shy about having opinions, you are more than likely to see my views expressed here, rather than modelling per se.
“Finescale with feeling” is my own phrase, in an attempt (quite possibly a pretentious attempt) to reconcile fidelity to prototype with the warmth that comes from a love of the subject matter, rather than the production of a perfect but sterile recreation of the real thing. I see nothing wrong with trying to get things right, but one has to know when to stop – usually when the engineering tolerances produce human intolerances. Where this lies for any individual, only they can say, and no one can judge: least of all me.
Modelling wise, I am gradually regaining my focus: I have acquired the famous Lydham Heath layout, which has revitalised my interests in English minor railways, to the extent of re-acquiring my original S Scale layout from the mid 1990s, “Sulgrave Manor” (better known as “Llanfair”) as a layout on which to run and test my small collection of EWJR locos (2), coaches (3) and wagons (quite a few more!)
