I will step in here and point out that while others think the memes and comments that they have posted are fun and jovial, others do not. Others have tried to point this out in previous posts This thread is starting to create animosity between members here, which is obviously not was intended when it was started.

I agree 100%. I am just going to throw my $.02 here and I say this with all due respect to everyone. Maybe some of these comments would stop and some animosity would cease in some instances if offerings were posted in a more timely manner. Guys who follow this thread are probably doing so to maybe pick up something new and off-load some old stuff that they don't want. Some guys grab a kit but then take 1/2 a day or more to post anything; and I understand you have to get home from work, dig out what you want to trade, post the photos, etc. I have pictures of my "trade" kits ready to go on my phone, my home computer, and my work computer. I have grabbed several kits on this thread and have had my offerings posted within 5 minutes every time. Just throwing that out there, but it seems to keep things moving along.

The Concept of this thread is exactly NOT that Ron. Firstly, there are no free models here. We pay for our kits [unless you're getting them free] and pay postage to see them get to their PIF destination.

The idea in Mike D's mind was to foster good will between all of us here on the board after a few scammers had come through and thrown a wet blanket on the whole thing. Everyone here, to a man is upbeat and jovial about how this works and it's success. If you somehow missed that I am here to correct it. I sensed a little tude in your post and wanted to say to everyone else here that that is NOT why we are all here.

Nothing "Free" here.

Its free to the person who receives it is what I meant. Technically I could have paid $1 for a kit that retails for $30, and then ship that samekit to someone for around $8 postage. In return I could be receiving a kit that retails for $30. would you consider that a loss? I wouldn't. So as I said, enjoy your free kit's everyone. All it takes is a few who are greedy or ungrateful to ruin it for everyone.

It is not FREE. It costs all parties involved some monetary value. Again not FREE.

If all parties involved posted their offerring in a timely manner, this disscussion would not be taking place.

... I'm not going to be logged in every 5minutes to check this site so those of you who are impatient will have to wait.  The concept of this thread is you are getting a FREE kit from another member, so get your free kit and enjoy it. 

'pears to me attitude runs both ways here. Putting up a post without clear info and then throwing a 'just be grateful for the free kit' in someone's face is as childish as some of the other remarks posted. As a courtesy to the rest of the participants, it seems fitting that if one is going to claim an offering, they should be ready to post at least a verbal description if not pics in as timely a manner as possible.

Folks- I'm going to put this on hold for a few weeks. It seems we have the same players, often posting the same models. 

I've asked opinions of three folks I've come to respect as to where this is going and a hiatus seems like a good idea. Hopefully some of you will be able to go to some shows or sort through your collection and have some interesting things to offer in a month or so when we restart. 

I've enjoyed watching this thread. It has been more successful than I had ever hoped. I look forward to seeing where this takes off when we restart.

Please remember you can post your models if you're looking for anything specific.
