Hi All

 

Pondering joining either the MBF or rejoining DEMU. Anyone have any feedback on what they are currently like? Worth the fee etc? What are the current benefits of both?

 

Cheers

Hi Jim,

 

I used to be a member of DEMU but let the subcription lapse, mainly due to a change in direction. I have an interest in the BR Blue period although my main interest is BR (W) 1955 to 65 period, so DEMU is no longer relavent.

 

I guess for the small annual subscription it's worth joining to see if it suits you or not. As my signature shows I am currently am EMGS & MERG Member.

MBF & DEMU are specialist groups so if that's your interest then it must be worth subscribing.

Hi Guys

 

In case you dont know I was a member of DEMU and indeed edited Update for several years. I too let my subscription lapse as while I accepted DEMU needed to be less finescaley it went a bit too far towards the RTR side of the hobby to interest me. It seemed less about how good the modelling was and more about how much stuff you had.

 

I was wondering if this is still the case or not. As I really feel modelling what I do I should support the society and to an extent I still do (I still offer a discount to DEMU members on some of my bits and bobs which comes from my own pocket!)

 

I have had some PM's about one of the societies (not saying which one) and these back up the opinions I had already sought. Its probably best to PM me if your experience is not positive but positive responses are perhaps better on here.

 

The thing is I dont know a lot about buses but I need to. Not so much the actual modelling of them as its just an object at the end of the day and I never model from models but things like whats available, and where to get it from.

 

I guess what I am saying is for me (and please dont take it as arrogant) with regard to DEMU I would bring something to the society but with the MBF I would gain something from the society.

 

For that reason I am veering towards the MBF at the moment but I dont just want to dismiss DEMU as I hope its moved on from when I was a member.

 

Cheers

 

Jim
