I have, unfortunately you do not seem to have the skills you mentioned above, as anyone who bothers to read - and more importantly - understand the groups Charter will know. But then should anyone actually expect a Google groupie to understand anything about the ethics of Usenet. :~(

Ah, the old proof by assertion gambit.
All you have to do is quote the relevant bit of the charter and show that I'm wrong. To make it easy, I'll even give you the URL

I'm glad I still have Jerry killfiled - I wish others did. Occasionally he makes valid points, but then he always lets his mouth run away with him.

It always follows a familiar pattern.
Hurl abuse at someone and make some specious claim that they're wrong.
Show a complete inability to come up with any evidence when challenged.
Attack the medium (Google groups) rather then the message when he knows he's lost.
Close down the thread by snipping all context.
I used to think Jerry was a spotty kid using Daddy's computer. Now I think it's just a computer program written by some spotty kid. The long periods of absence are due to some kind of system upgrade. Unfortunately this version is no better than the last.
We'll have to hope Jerry2010 will be a bit more functional.

Sorry, badly worded on my part.
Gauge 1 has two accepted standard scales, namely 10 mm = 1 foot (1:30.48) and 3/8 inch = 1 foot (1:32).

As far as I'm aware the UK 'standard' for Gauge 1 is 10mm:1ft scale.
It's very much minority interest however.

As I found out when trying to decide between G1 and O, it's moving that way, but there's still plenty of 3/8in out there (one kit manufacturer does both scales!) - notably Bachmann Brass (though new models will be 10mm I believe). There's also Aristocraft's uk outline which is different again....
I've just checked the Gauge 1 Society's web page and they still adhere to both scales, but I have to question their assertion that both major scales can work together - they might work, but look wrong.
Cheers Richard

45mm Track has a number of uses, and while 'Gauge 1' 10mm and 3/8" scale is the nominal scale, G Scale is 1:22.5. However 15mm and 16mm scale narrow gayge is also popular on 45mm track. 15mm being used to model the various 3ft gauge real life railways. I'm building a nice collection of Isle of Man stock in 15mm ....

Wording confuses gauge and scale, I think. Again. 10mil (UK only) and 1:32 are for modelling standard gauge (4' 8.5") on gauge 1 (45mm) track. This has definitely become a minority interest.
Most people now use 1 (45mm) for several narrow gauges, the most common being meter gage (1:22) and 3ft gauge (1:20.3). For both these scales, 1:24 is usual for buildings, figures, vehicles, etc. Nice mish mash, but the 6ft rule ("usual viewing distance") shows that the differences in scale aren't noticeable. Also, because of the large variation in clearance diagrams for narrow gauges, running meter gauge and 3ft gauge or even 2ft gauge stock together doesn't offend the eye at all.
OTOH, Aristocraft and USA Trains make 1:29 scale standard gauge trains for 45mm track. Why? Because 1:32 trains don't look bulky enough next to narrow gauge stock. And the largest market is garden railways, whose operators want standard gauge trains to look bigger....
Then there's Thomas, whose scale is indefinable. ;-) But he looks good running on 45mm track.

Sorry about that, I'll rewrite:
"... 10mm scale (UK only)..."
There mow, that should do the job.

Do you have an opinion on the overall appearance of 1/43 scale vehicles with 1/48 scale railroad models (including buildings)? I tend to favor 1/50, but far more is available in 1/43. In 1/48 about all that is available is a few WWII military models (AFAIK, not Monty's Humber) such as Russian jeep equivalents and wee 10hp British vans.
