I'm late to this one, and have read the previous posts with some interest.
I agree with fatmac, we already have quite the community and (in my opinion) all we need of a club / society here in the GnATTERbox. We appear to be scattered throughout the world, (although I see there is another Gn15-er here in Belfast
I've been involved in various model railway clubs and societies down the years, and immediately felt more at home here than anywhere on the fateful Sunday evening when I discovered this place.
Gno-one counts the rivets, takes the p**s out of someones elses pride and joy, or pulls out another persons work to redo it to their "standard". None of these things happened to me, but I witnessed them, and was sorry I did. Model railways are supposed to be fun.
Gn15 and GNine (yes, I am a bit mad) will always be niche scales, and for that reason I don't think that a formal society or club is needed. Odd people (please don't take offence, being odd is a good thing
) who make and appreciate odd models will always find each other, and this seems to be the place to gather.
All that said, if the GnATTERbox should ever need funds to cover hosting or bandwidth or the like, I'd be more than happy to contribute, and don't need a treasurer or audited accounts to show where my 6d went.
I'll shut up now.
