Just different types of hobby, both respectable.

One finds funny and amusing measuring a kit, having the perfect cockpit, a perfectly historic accurate model, or just talk about it. Others have fun in butchering old plastic, doing gizmology inside their airplanes or tanks and share the progress with friends. Just two different ways to have fun: only problem is that sometimes some of the guys on the first side have little comprehension for us on this one.
I, for me, am a member here on HS, where most of my posts are on this very section of the forum, and also am a member in an Italian forum called with self-mockery "Poor Man's Modelling", whose spirit is exactly the same as here.
...you lot are such a helpful crowd. Kits, parts, decals seem to flow freely among the members of this forum. Case in point: I got home from work today to find a fat envelope from Australia with a lot of old Bedford QL plans and build articles. Graham remembered my post a couple of months ago on my Milicast QL conversions and dug these out of his files.
Thanks, mate! - well sort of, as those QL plans of yours rather ruined my plans for current builds. The Bedfords are out again and I think I see a QL Dental Laboratory (QLDL?) with trailer in my future.
You guys are the best!
I don't post often, but I check this forum out several times a day just in case some new and fun stuff has popped up.
What I love about this forum is everyone just has fun and gets along, and that everyone seems to remember that if it were not for the likes of Airfix,and Lindberg etc the hobby would not be where it is today in terms of kits.
Coming here it just like going to my LHS and seeing my buddies (we meet up there every Thursday evening, and over the weekends). We all get along, we may have different interests, but we help each other out where possible.
I don't belong to any actual modelling club (I could not stand the cult of personality that clubs have)and this site and group is my de facto club.
We know what we are building, and we know they are not perfect and we just get on and do the best of what we have to work with. Plus our actions speak louder than words, and no one appears to be afraid to show what they build. Plus as I get older I like regressing back into my child hood.
This group has a great bunch of people and several characters amongst us from all around this planet> Are we serious modellers the answer is YES but we have retained the perception that it is fun.
I only know of one other site that I like because it has the same atmosphere and that is Track-Link for the armour side of my interest.
Some people take life too seriously and its too short to waste time on petty points
The objective of this Group Build is to encourage as many
modellers as possible to build their kits and share their progress via words and
photos on this Forum.
You are welcome to post general construction tips or relevant
reference information and photos to this Forum too.
This Group Build will feature Airfix, Frog and Matchbox kits.
Build as many kits as you like
Conversions, aftermarket and
scratchbuilding are all permitted.
Any markings are acceptable.
Document your progress and do a
write-up on your build - where did you have trouble, what improvements did
you make, what markings did you choose and why? It would be GREAT if
everyone would do a writeup and submit it to HyperScale as a Feature
