Ok, let me break it down for you Barney style there sparky. Re-Read the post above this one. wow...... I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want to be the guy who gets a rep for verbally attacking a disabled modeler on this board. And a pretty well respected member at that. people have long memories. Your fighting a losing battle man, just let it rest. We've gone through 2 pages worth of verbal jabbing, and have found no common ground. Lets just put this one to bed and move on. Shall we? agree to disagree and be done with it. We all have models to build....
Then WHY are you ripping the guy a new one NOW? If you have doubts about his motives, P/M the guy and talk to him. And your missing the whole moral point here pal. Your being seen as a guy who is attacking a disabled person for no good reason. If there are more of the people who shared your view on this matter, they are staying REALLY quiet, aren't they?
yep. mark has always come across as an honest man to me, and I think a lot of a person who goes above and beyond to help other people. Granted, I don't have a whole lot of what he's looking for, but he doesn't think any less of me for it, and is happy for what I can send. So if I have it, or can get it, he's got it. Long time no talk Vince. How r you doin?
Yeah, true enough. I'm pretty sure they are aware of this thread too. Its just the principle of the thing Rob.... Mark is trying to do a pretty cool thing for people who can really use the help.And that need won't slow or stop any time soon. And then you have a low post keyboard jockey come in and start trouble. If the moderators wanted to do something besides delete posts, they would have done so by now. I've said my peace, I'm done unless he starts again.
How many trades have you made?? Recently? ..... Trust runs on numbers and statistic, and you have neither on your side. Low post count, no trade history, and picking fights where none should exist. As far as trust goes. I've seen Mark on here ALOT more than I've seen you. See where the numbers and statistics thing comes in? He is known on the boards as a straight up guy who is trying to do a good thing. If you have doubts P/M the man!!! He is more than willing to explain to you how it works, but if all you want to do is snipe at him and run his rep down, pray you never have to be in one of those disabled peoples shoes, because your fall from on high will be swift and no doubt humiliating. Good luck
Prove he's NOT a modeler. I comprehend quite well. For someone with only 159 posts and let me see... Oh yeah, ZERO feed back in the trade section, so I comprehend that you don't even have a dog in this hunt. Your picking an argument with the wrong people for the wrong reasons other than being miffed over something that isn't your concern. If you don't like it, or have nothing constructive to add to the conversation, feel free to ignore it, or better yet, go be a troll somewhere else,
Agreed. We have that problem with our engineering staff here where I work. They have talent, but no practical experience. I tell them all the time that while they are busy trying to re-invent the wheel, they would do well to remember that the diploma they earned from college or trade school is a LEARNERS PERMIT, not a license that states they know everything... And I agree about the generational thing too. I'll be the first to admit that I can't do HALF of the stuff that the younger generations can do with computers. I'm just an analogue man in a digital world.
Really nice build Gregg!! I have this one in my stash. I plan to build it "Gas Monkey" style, Semi-gloss black paint, wide whites with chrome reverse rims, lowered with a slight rake, sbc with dual exhaust, disc brakes, stock interior. At least that's the plan... for now....
Ran into that on the bay too. It looks like a deal till you average in the shipping cost versus buying from say, Model Roundup. Depending on what you buy, Jack generally charges a flat 9.99 or so for shipping which is about right for where I live. But some of these characters charge more for shipping than the original purchase. I know that you can add your own filters for certain shipping costs, but it is getting alittle out of hand.
