Re: Scratchbuilding on Facebook...

I would love the opportunity to share my knowledge and skills, but I need more activity to make me think it worthwhile. I have not seen much on here that comes close to, for instance the Downes/Robinson thread on RMWeb. I merely comment according to what I see and I don't see much scratchbuilding on...

Re: Scratchbuilding on Facebook...

Well, there was a need for a scratchbuilding outlet and since the forums aren't the right place it seems, Facebook is all that's left. But the model railway groups on there are all box opening fests. I used to get all my work through Facebook , so I don't have a problem with it. Depends how you use ...

Scratchbuilding on Facebook...

Hi all, I have started a new Facebook group for anyone who either already does scratchbuild or really wants to. It's an extra to normal forums, not an either/or thing, so please join if making models from scratch is your passion or your wish and lets see if we can stop the slide away from real skill...

Re: A life time ban from that "other place"...

I tend to take the impression of slow from the apparent number of new posts, or the lack of them, rather than "quips", although they can be amusing sometimes. There are some wits out there. My trouble is, I'm impatient. I expect people from all over to comment usefully on every topic. I tend to sit ...

Re: A life time ban from that "other place"...

Maybe it was the section I was looking at, as scenery is my passion. That had hardly been added to in months, but no matter, I'll keep an eye on it.

A life time ban from that "other place"...

Because this forum is a bit slow, I tried to re-activate my membership of another place, but although I was kicked orff in March 2010(!!) it says I'm still banned! What an honour! No idea why that pompous little twit banned me. Not sure I even knew at the time. my memory for unimportant things is ab...
