Perfect example
Posted by Anonymous on Thursday, June 5, 2003 10:21 AM
Mer1122's post in aircraft, "My First Plane...be kind", is a perfect example of how this forum works and what it's ment for. Those with experiance helping those without (or with less).

That old P-38 is one of those kits that I think could put a beginer right off the hobby completely out of the sheer frustration it can cause.

I think that shows how good this forum is. When a lot of us started modeling this kind of interaction and exchange was not possible and, I dare say, Mer1122's excellent first aircraft was (partially) due to the advice posted here. By continuing in this way we can get new modelers involved and all of us will richer by the experiance.

Thanks to the FSM team and the people that are members of this forum I see a bright future for our hobby.

There's my couple pennies.Tongue [:P]

I don't mind being quoted at all! :-)

I just wish things like the internet and this forum were around when a lot of us started the hobby.

With the encouragement of experienced modelers, beginers who can often be their own worst critcs, can have the benefit of those who know thes things take time to develop, trial and error are what develops the skills.

Meredith's P-38 is fantastic considering what comes out of that kit box. I've never seen that kit come out so well without extensive surgery and scratchbuilding by experienced hands.

Lets keep encouraging all beginers :-)

Don't Worry, DVoss, the modelers have found a new toy, expect local hobby shop sales to be down for the next day or so, and then spike back up!
BTW: Just bought myself some 1/144 scale airplanes from a local shop, and they are SO DARN CUTE!!! I mean, really! They're these 5 inch models of 50 foot death machines! There's something intrinsically cute/humorous about small scale aircraft!!

And Kaleu speaks Russian, and is slyzhil in(vo is "in", right? I think it's vo, because that's like "vu", which is what I was taught!) flotye.

It translates to: I served in the Navy. I thought about using some slang, but decided that it's better to keep it PG rated..lol

Mine translates (rough as it might be) into:

"I don't speak or understand German. English, please, my friends

I'm pretty sure thats how the phrase goes together but its been over a year since I used my Russian. It might be a bit off by now.

I stand absolutely corrected, slap me silly for making postings when I'm half asleep.

Pazhalsta is please and you're welcome. Spaseeba is indeed thank you.

Lets get back to English before we all lose our command of it :-)
