I've been here a year and a thank you.
Posted by ManCityFan on Saturday, October 21, 2017 10:23 PM

I just realized I joined the forum a little over a year ago, and wanted to say thank you  for welcoming me into the community.  I believe my skills are improving, and this is largely due to the support and suggestions I have received this past year.  Not to mention all of the nuggets of information I have found while crusing around the site.  Your WIP and finished builds are inspiring.  Losing the fear of trying new techniques is a thing of the past. 

I have been online practically since it was available to the public, and this is hands down the most positive online experience I have ever had.  You folks are outstanding!

So again, thank you all for making me feel welcome from the very beginning.

D

Congrats being here a year, I've been here that long also.

If y'all mean y'all been online since available to the public assuming y'all mean on the Internet (a.k.a World Wide Web) c. January 1993 when according to Wikipedia there were 50 servers world-wide. By time I'd logged on January 1997 there were "more than 50" but The Web still was far from being "populated" with useful websites though model hobby oriented ones were popping up near daily. I had my computer graphic arts website up on June 19, 1997, took it down three years later to the day, still pondering where should re-establish it.

Me too, TB!  Thank you for all the replies.  I am more than happy to be "part of the furniture".  I am just now feeling like I may have learned enough to be helpful to our newest members.  Even if only by asking the right questions to gain some more knowledge.  I hope to create some future "oh wow" moments when you are looking at my work, as you all have done for me this past year.

Not that I can remember, lol.  Been on the receiving end of a few smacks myself.  Usually deserved, sometimes worth it.  Wink

It's a nice place to hang out in, isn't it?

How did you find the site?

That'd be a good thread.

I was web searching for  build reviews of the old classic Hasegawa "Mavis" way back in 2006.

My model as a result.

 

Dry transfers, painted markings and multi colored natural metal were all tips from members.

Dang! a year! You have got to be kidding me.

Time goes by way too slow and way too fast at the same time.

Happy Anniversary.

1/25 Monogram 57 Chevy Bel Air
1/144 Trumpeter Kawanishi H6K5-L Mavis

Completing a kit is like cutting the head off a Hydra. Two more replace it in the stash.

Actually, I found the site after subscribing to the magazine.  When I finally decided to build all those kits that had been sitting around for 30+ years, I got a subscription because I knew I would need all the help I could get.  Then I found the forum.  So much had changed with the hobby that I spent a lot of time just looking at WIP to get a sense of what was available.  That would be....a lot!  Time well spent, I must say.

That is a very fine looking model, by the way.  The NMF is impressive!

Ain't that the truth!  I keep saying, the days are slow, but the years are fast.  Not sure how both can be true, but they are.

My man Toshi.  I just have to say that your life story has been an inspiration for me.  The way you have overcome obstacles in your kind, humble manner is to be admired.  Your builds have provided inspiration for me to get better.  Your devotion to your family, and your wife in particular, has warmed my heart.  Thank goodness for that therapist who pushed you into the hobby!

Be well, my friend,

D
