As someone who has been into S since I could walk (I'm 68), it is sometimes difficult to understand the depths of despair that many exhibit regarding the availability of product. I spend a sizeable amount each year on both old and new. My collection runs the gamut from the beginning of Gilbert S to the present and includes Flyonel, American Models, S Helper and MTH. I have more stuff than I could ever use in a lifetime. Yes there are times when I'll wish someone made this or that in S but the fact is that if they did and I bought it something else would sit on a shelf or in a box not being used. I'm grateful for what I have and enjoy it for what it is. Please don't misunderstand, you are all entitled to your own wants and desires. I guess mine are simpler.
