Any current or ex-KCCer's out there?
Posted by Woody on Sunday, April 6, 2003 7:04 PM
It seems like plastic kit collecting was more fun before the internet became so invasive in the hobby. Communication is fast but a sense of mistrust has crept into what was a friendly and trusting hobby. Does anyone know of an internet collectors forum that recaptures the old days or has ebay taken it's toll? Best regards Christopher Woods

I agree Woody. I've been a KCCer since the early '80s. Every time I get the publication I notice how the want ads have dwindled from over 100 a few years ago to less than 50 in the last issue. I've been looking for a site on the internet but haven't found one yet. Lets face it, Ebay seems to be here to stay.

I don't mind ebay-I buy about 10 kits a week, but I do miss the feel of community. I too started in KCC long ago and then drifted away for about a decade. When I returned I was shocked by how different collecting has become. I guess I figured more people were nostalgic of what was! I wish John could get KCC online. Let me know if you find anything like it on line. Best regards.
