Does it really ?? or could it be you dont know the whole story??
To me this sounds like a blatant abuse of power.
Honestly I post my work for the benifit of others , it takes time to build and document a build. I post pics of works in progress and the finished work so that people can see the steps it takes to get from point "A" to point "B" so that if anyone has any questions they can ask and hopefully I can give a answer that helps. When people give constructive criticism its accepted kindly and alls good in the hood. But if im harassed or insulted am I exspected to lay down and just take it? Well I try that, and when I do the same people keep comming back and doing the same.
What you dont see is when I try to go to these same people in a PM to try to work out any differances we may have. What eles you dont get to see is the insults I recieve in return. This all makes me tired to the point I dont even want to share my work, but i do for the sake of the guys who uphold honorable standards and truely enjoy the art of modelling, those who come to learn and teach.
If I give a guy a PM Im extending the peace pipe if he refuses then I have the right as a mod to take apporpriate steps, Im tired of the fire starters and pot stirers, they are the only thing that hold this forum back from being the best model building forum around. So dont get upset when I do my job and want to get rid of the problems.

It sounds like there is more going on behind the scenes we don't know about. A moderator has the responsibility of keeping the peace on that site. A few words to the disruptive person at first, then a warning or two and then a ban.
Forums are here, as Thumper, Inerceptor and ProStreet have said, to share work, ideas and techniques. Constructive criticism is expected and wanted in order for us to grow. Roadkill made his feelings known and I'm sure Rom looked at his work twice because of it. I would have. The system works. Let's get back to it.

count my vote with yours Kaleb
You know rom is the only one I really see catching junk publicly. But he stays good natured and continues building. I vote for this thread to be cleaned out and stay on the subject.

And without wanting to stir anyone's pot, I think you handled yourself and this thread rather well......I would've lost it for sure.
Now, back on topic.....
I probably would agree that the use of your mill would make this a hellofaloteasier than it is, but you don't have access to it, so you do what you gotta do, hey.
Yes, things like this (in their early stages) can. and do, quite often look rough. You can't help but get a little messy now and again.
Man, lots (ALL) of my stuff doesn't get photographed in early development...............
You on the other hand, show it how it is. And I'll stand up and back you till I'm 6 foot under mate, you WILL make this work.
Having said that, I love where you're headed with this, and applaud your tenacity and willingness to do it in brass. Good luck Bro.

PS: where did you buy the scale model of parrot, it looks so real man (LOL)
Cool pet companion. I'd be teaching it to hold parts together while the glue dried, always need a third hand. My dog just won't cooperate.

BTW, for those of you who are interested in using brass, there's a new book out by Ken Foran, who is a master of the art. You can see his work at scalemotorcars.com, where his screen name is xken. And if anybody thinks this is easy, he has a thread over there on building an XKE roadster out of brass; he's still working on the engine and the thread is now 43 pages. My point is, that even the most experienced builders go through some phases where things are experimental and look a bit rough.
XKE brass engine build...

The progress updates may be like watching sausage being made. You don't want to see what goes into it, but it can turn out pretty tasty.
That's one of the funnier things I've read in a while!
