In Topic: When do you stop building for yourself & start building for the hobby?

14 November 2014 - 01:34 AM



You haven't answered my question in response to your opening statement. Again, why do you feel a person is compelled to increase the accuracy of his/her work based upon how much public recognition that person's work receives?


I'm with Casey on this. Do you know if the modeler you describe even exists? Do you know someone who feels that kind of pressure? It seems more likely to me that elite builders do what they do because they can and they like to.

Looks nice! It's fun to build models of cars you've owned, isn't it?

In Topic: MCM Forum - expert work expected?

04 November 2014 - 05:20 PM

"Expert work expected?" I don't get that flavor from this place at all. More like "effort appreciated". The responses I see on here are usually helpful and supportive. I don't read every thread, so perhaps I inadvertently miss some drama, but it seems like most folks are of good will and here to share in the fun. Certainly there is some expert work posted here, all the way up to flat out amazing, but even those builders don't come off as "snobs" or "superior".

When I have posted my own models (definitely not expert), I have received "attaboys" and constructive criticism. I appreciate both. How can you learn anything if you never know when you're wrong? I like this forum, and if it's only for expert work, how come I haven't been kicked out yet? :P
