This web site would not be what it is today if it wasn't for the contributions of the individuals listed on this page. As webmaster, I am just the editor of the
content that people provide me. I created this page to say a big "THANK YOU" to those who took the time to photograph, document, and/or provide key data to help keep
the content current, accurate, and relevant for all S-scale modelers, and those who are considering S.

How This Web Site is Funded
This web site is not free! Each year we must renew our domain registrations ("nasg.org" and "nasgconvention.com"). We rent server space with a web hosting company that
is renewed on an annual basis as well. We are currently limited to 10GB of available storage space (click on the Site button's "Site Map" option to see how much
space we are currently using). For about two-and-a-half times the current annual cost, we could upgrade to unlimited storage.
The webmaster, yours truly, does get a small fee for maintaining this web site. I usually spend at least one hour each day, but usually several hours, maintaining this
web site. I do not keep track of the actual hours, but my payment is likely to be in the pennies or dimes per hour! I own my own software publishing company, through
which I use PayPal's business account. I have offered, and am using, that business account to help implement the online shopping cart of the NASG web site. All funds
collected on behalf of the NASG are sent to the NASG's Treasurer, minus any per-transaction fees that PayPal (and the credit/debit card companies) charge. I pay a
monthly fee for my PayPal business account, which my company pays for completely.
The NASG organization pays for the above-mentioned costs (except for the PayPal monthly fees). So, if you want to provide support for this web site, please consider
becoming an NASG member, as a small portion of the annual membership fee pays for this web site.

now have a large volume of information and photos available for all to enjoy.

the corrections. We are trying to make this web site as accurate as possible.
