Collection of Supplies and Sources
Posted by STOVK on Friday, July 07, 2017 7:03 PM

Hello All,

Since I have started getting into this modeling thing, I have been scouring the World Wide Web for Tips, Techniques, Sources, and Supplies. As I come across something I think might be useful, I make a quick copy of the URL or just jot down a keyword or term to refer to at another time. I just recall looking for any and all threads and links to something I found helpful.

So, with that said a DISCLAIMER: It's a hodge podge of stuff with minor organization and possibly duplication or broken/outdated links.

If something makes no sense, just ask and I'll tell you why I included it.

With that said, here is the list:

Thanks! Bookmarked!

Hello STOVK!

Well thanks a lot for that disclaimer - it made your post a lot more user friendly. Without it your post would indeed read a little bit funny. See, you've got that tendency to you that make your post feel a bit like you were praeching, or something like that, it's really not so easy to describe. So maybe you might want to think about your writing style, that might help you to communicate better without triggering some unintended emotions in your readers. The above statement is meant as a feedback, so please take it as a gift, from me to you. I hope you can appreciate it, if not, please remember that I mean well.

BlackSheepTwoOneFour chimed in too, which is interesting - I think he now feels somehow personally connected to you.

Now about the list - while I appreciate the time and effort you put into it, and I'm sure many people will find it useful, I think you could make it even better by commenting each entry a bit more, so that our search engine here could have something to get a hold of. The list is also very long, that could make it troublesome to look it up, but I understand you wanted to make it comprehensive - I don't realy have a good idea how to solve that in the moment.

Thanks for sharing and have a nice day

Paweł

All comments and critique welcomed. Thanks for your honest opinions!

Knock it off with the snide sarcastic remarks and comments in your posts. There's no need for it. You're not making yourself look good here.

Thank you for the suggestion. As time permits, I will see if I can organize it better and update the post at a later date. Thank you.

Hey STOVK;

 Thanks for that list .Could you have made it more conversational ? It reminded me of a to-do- list from where I used to work . It's alright though , Some very good info . Again Thanks !
