Thanks for your replies!
Harry, thanks for your support!
Anthony, reading your posts for the first time I thought trolls.gif
After reading them again,however, it seems to me that they were simply insufficiently thought out.
Probably we all agree that modeling forums are not made for promoting sales of manufacturers but for supplying own and substantial information in order to help other modelers to choose modeling products.
In the early days of modeling forums I used to post my pictures without further information. Among these models was an extensively improved, originally extremely poor but expensive kit. Some time later a forum member posted that he bought the same kit and was annoyed to see that the box content had little to do with my model. He reproached me with wasting his money by being too lazy for giving essential information.
Therefore I never post pictures without mentioning all major shortcomings and everything that is not OOB. Holding back such information – t h i s is unjust.
If your oppinion remains different – it is at your discretion to ignore my future topics.
BTW reading obviates writing sometimes. My post #43 in the mentioned GMC topic says:
Admittedly the AITM cabs have their shortcomings, and it takes a lot of effort, and it requires some skills to achieve a nice result. Nevertheless for the true vintage truck enthusiast the effort is really worth, so I would like to encourage every inclined modeler.
Your explanation for "supplying substantial information" may be true regarding German Modeling Forums, however, this is not a German forum. It is based in the United States, as is AITM. I wonder if your findings might have been different if the caster was from Germany... I disagree with your reasons and your explanation. As for ignoring your future topics you can consider it done, I have better things to do with my time.
