I'm trying to add a second topic to 45mm Anti-Tank Gun 53-K (UM Military Technics 409, 1:72) , but it refuses to take the 45 mm Anti-Tank gun M1942 (M-42) as a 2nd topic.

1:72 45mm Anti-Tank Gun 53-K (UM Military Technics 409)

Also, when I'm trying to add an additional topic, I start typing the new topic, it provides possibilities, but it won't take the one I select for auto fill. I have to physically type in the entire string.

I've uploaded some kits and info with box art photos under contribute. When uploading image it looks fine during entry process but then shows up vertically when posted. I know to fix this in a stash mode but that advance option is not available in the contribute mode.

I was wondering why neither German Field Military Police (Tamiya 89740, 1:35) nor Park Gate (Italeri 412, 1:35) mention that the Tamiya kit is a rebox of the Italeri kit with Tamiya figures and accessories added.

Actually, several of the Italeri scenic kits have had this treatment and I would've expected Scalemates to so note.

I guess because users like you and me fill the database with these relationships between kits, and nobody has seen it yet, or neglected to enter it into the database

Can we comment on kits? I purchased Flying Leathernecks Decal kit FL48025 and the kit does not include all of the options shown on the pictures. Specifically it does not include VMM-265 based in Iwakuni Japan as it shows.
19. July, 22:33
Martin Oostrom
Yes you can. Near the bottom of the product page is a section called newsfeed.
Acoording to this website https://www.flyingleathernecksdecals.com/p/fl48025-mv-22b-ospreys---tilt-rotor-tango there are no markings for VMM-265. It could be an older picture on our product page?

As to a bagged product which is 97mm from top to bottom , 30 mm left to right and 3 mm deep

What dimension goes in length, height and width?

Maybe we should have a diagram in these fields to advise direction of dimensions

Hardly anyone reads instructions, boxart 640px wide for example.

L = 97; H (thickness) = 3; W = 30. That's how I have approached it.
18. July, 12:22

To be honest, it is something which doesn't really matter. If someone wants to buy an item I doubt that the package size is going to change their mind.

Maybe, but I assume someone must have requested it otherwise it wouldn't be there.

Inspired by Richard Bransons space flight I've been fixing the topics of the different SpaceShipOne, SpaceShipTwo and their motherships. For some reason this kit White Knight & SS1 (Amodel 72201, 1:72) seems to be stuck to this topic which is not correct SCM Topic: Scaled Composites Model 348 White Knight Two

Something is still very strange with this kit. I managed to get it out of White Knight Two by putting it in SpaceShipOne instead. However, now the kit is shown twice under the category SCM Topic: Scaled Composites Model 316 SpaceShipOne instead! Can this be fixed?
15. July, 20:39
maybe it appears twice as it is entered as multitopic?

Regarding this topic

SCM Topic: Lighting

We have Nano LED lights used for incorporating into our builds and also LED lights or other lights used to illuminate our workbenches - to my mind these should be separate topics.

Maybe we already have a split but we are all getting confused what goes where?

More duplicate records for Osprey - New Vanguard series this time

Now one possible issue is that Osprey have reprinted some of the early books with new covers but as far as I know the content is the same. Perhaps we need an Edition field?

Do raw fiber optics have a place on Scalemates as a material for lighting effects? I could understand if not - like, it probably isn't appropriate to be adding LEDs, switches, battery clips, etc. But on the other hand, if blank decal paper for printing custom decals is a valid material for a project then why not fiber optics? I don't have any preference either way, but thought I might ask before adding products to the database and which topic they should be added to.
7. July, 23:14
Well gee, I guess fiber optics aren't very popular here. Never mind, I guess.
10. July, 23:32
I see no valid reason why not, on the other hand I'm also not missing them either.

Feel free to add them if you have them in your stash, but we should not "actively" start adding potential electronics which eventually might be used by someone in the future

Something going wrong here - they both go to the same web page - I am sort of certain that Green Line is just a product line of Fredericus Rex - whether the should be listed as Greenline or Fredericus is another point - I note they are also a distributor for other products but I am almost certain that the Green line kits are a product of Fredericus Rex. You can see all their manufacturing equipment on their website

SCM Brand: Fredericus-Rex DE

SCM Brand: Green-Line DE

The logo looks incorrect as well.

There are 16 paints in Vallejo - Model Air with the title: "Dit nummer bestaat niet!" (This number does not exist!). Any reason for this?
Also in Vallejo - Model Air, there are sets with 8ml bottles which show the included colours as 17ml.
7. July, 14:18
maybe somebody entered those (incorrectly?), and somebody wanted to show that were wrong and entered that label? the truth is that if you go to vallejo website, you can not find any of those numbers. i have just checked those 16
maybe it was a number that they created and removed from the range afterwards? maybe we simply need to delete them.
7. July, 14:28
some of them are part of set 71.153, acording to what i see in SCM. but i do nto see that set in vallejo website

I suggest to apply the right number, add the right name, right volume and then add them to the paint set
7. July, 15:35

The issue with that is that these are not retail items, only in the sets.
