Pues efectivamente, las malas noticias son definitivas.
Esta es la declaración del webmaster:
"I am sorry to inform the modeling community that "On The Way!" is gone. Due
to financial problems at home, I can no longer afford to operate this
website, and indeed, my entire involvement in the hobby will be scaled back
For those who were not aware, I had to purchase 99% of the models that I
reviewed on this site. Although there were a small number of companies that
supported me by sending in free review samples, there were also a great many
companies who promised sample kits, and never sent them, as well as many
very large companies who would never even bother to respond to my email
inquiries (I won't mention any names, but the two largest sound very much
like Tasegawa and Tevell).
I would very much like to encourage my former viewers to pay special
attention to the companies who were kind enough to support my site. They
obviously were foresighted enough to recognize the benefits of the free
advertising I provided to them:
ACE Model (http://www.acemodel.com.ua
ADV Mini (no website)
AFV Decals (http://www.angelfire.com/retro/afv_decals
BaxMod Models (http://www.baxmod.co.za/index.html
Fine Scale Factory (http://www.finescalefactory.de
HaT Industrie (http://www.hat.com
Also, please support the following hobby retailers who also provided me with
review items at their own expense:
Tracks & Troops (http://www.tracks-n-troops.com
Most importantly, I want to profusely thank all of the viewers who sent
contributions of various types to me over the years: kit reviews, Gallery
photos, information on model companies and kit lists, review items, modeling
tips, and many other things. Obviously I can't thank everyone by name, but I
want you all to know how much I appreciated your input.
There are still a large number of emails sitting in my inbox that I did not
have the time to respond to. For those of you who sent in something to me,
and I did not get around to posting your contribution, or responding to your
inquiries, I give you my sincere apology.
I have the entire website saved on my hard drive, and backed up on CD, so
perhaps some day in the future, when I am in a better position to take on
this responsibility, I can bring "On The Way!" ver. 2.0 on-line. Until that
day comes, I wish you all Happy Modeling.
En fin, "¡¡Lástima que termino el festival de hoy!!..."
A ver sí alguien se anima y pese a todo se acaba manteniendo la web...
