Anybody knows of any forum like this one dedicated to aircraft models? I'm working on some helicopters and it feels very lonely :D

Those should be easy to find. http://www.hyperscale.com/ is one that comes to mind if you don't mind guys that really get into details. There are a few that have aircraft sections such as http://forums.scalehobby.com/

Shame on you Chris for not telling Izzy abou The LEM a.k.a. The League of Extraordinary Modelers. The LEM covers just about everything from aircraft to armor to cars to ships, figures and dioramas.

Both Chris and I are members there.

You'll need to reference me when you contact the moderators to get admitted. Or at least I think that's how it works.

I seem to have those lapse of memory every now and then John. I think it is from to much smoke inhalation or something. :shock:

In Usenet News Groups (the original internet, BTW) there is an old newsgroup called rec.models.scale which is primarily aircraft, primarily military, even though there are armor, ship, and even model car posts there. It's not as active as it once was, but still a pretty decent forum, albeit completely unmoderated.

To read Usenet, you do have to have a newsreader--many ISP's have them, or you can find them online.

Thanks all!

Wow!!! rec.models.scale was where it all began! ScaleCorvettes.com was born there back in early 1998. I thought it was no longer active. Gotta get back there.

Thanks,
