Thanks for all further comments.
Peter, you really make me blush.
Peter, Harry, thanks for your encouraging words.
I joined the MCM Forum in May and it took quite a while to realize that it does not work like the European forums I knew before. Indeed, when I wrote the quoted sentence I was still amazed (among other things) that response depends mainly on the interest in the 1:1 vehicle and less on the expectation of seeing a good or poor model.
In the meantime, however, I learned that there seems to be a more or less impermeable dividing line between the various fields of interest in car modeling. My personal field of interest, i. e. building historically correct models, is obviously shared only by a minority of members, but I also learned that these members are really interested and that the skills and the historic expertise of these modelers are often excellent.
More than that I realized that topics of all members have little response whenever the 1:1 vehicle or even the scale is not mainstream.
Knowing this I am quite happy here and I enjoy the peaceful athmosphere. I am afraid you have to bear my German English for the future.
