Join us for a interactive discussion on 
Developing Future Model Making Professionals through Model Railroading

Wednesday, February 17 at 10 AM PT/11 AM MT/12 PM CT/1 PM ET/6 PM BST
hosted by APMM Railroading Ambassador, Jim Kellow, MMR

Jim Kellow, a Master Model Railroader who runs the New Tracks - Virtual Gatherings for Model Railroaders, believes that hobby railroading skills translate naturally into professional model making skills. This session explores the possibilities for skill sharing and development, networking for career advancement and project solutions, and connecting mentors and mentees. Jim will lead a panel discussion between participants and several model railroaders who have started their own companies utilizing 3D printing to create their products.

We believe that there is a natural bridge between hobbies that involve creating new things and working as a professional model maker. This session will help to solidify those connections.
