another personal photo not the boxart
you can change the images yourself if you can find the box art
FYU, user identified and sent a message. Restoring them in between other things. feel free to fix when you spot
Richmond, I told him to log them last night as there is the option to revert the images. But I dont know who has the permissions to it..
I will open up that functionality for all!
Thanks Tim 🙂 That'll help
Yes sorry forgot about the revert image.
Thanks guys i fix the ones i see and if i can find good quality boxart i will replace them when i can! Cheers Glenn
There are now 845 items in: SCM Search: title . I've noticed that when adding a new item if the manufacturer and nothing else is entered and you use the back button, the item is saved.
Now 900+, also noticed that when adding a new item, if you "Edit box content" and save in the new tab a new item is created as "title".
I am guilty of (naively) doing this and it's unfortunate the action (incorrectly) creates a database entry. Occasionally I start adding a new magazine issue or kit product and press Back to research something before starting/continuing with a new entry. Other times I'll open a new browser tab to do the research. I would think a valid database entry must require a minimum set of populated fields in order to get added - Brand, Title, Topic, Type, Released. If any of these are blank (including space characters) and Save is clicked then an error should be reported for the incomplete required field(s), same as on other website form entries where an address or phone number might be required for completing a registration and gets highlighted on the page if a problem exists. An item shouldn't get added to the database unless all the minimum requirements are met. And, clicking a browser's Back button should not be synonymous with clicking a page's Save button!
Tim, if you agree then a Feature Request should get submitted.
I agree at a very basic level and I would even add image to your list but I think some of the items on your list would prove problematic and deter new kits being added or even make things messier as someone could just make things up to get the product added. My view on images is if you have taken the time to add a new kit how difficult is it to add an image as well and the image makes the new entry look good.
Although having an image helps an entry look pretty, a missing image does not cause a "corrupt" database entry. If somebody wants to be stupid and make up false information just to meet minimum requirements criteria, I would view that as malicious database manipulation and grounds for banning the individual. The five items I listed are kind've core essentials for a valid entry that any responsible person would endeavor to have accurate values for. Irresponsible people shouldn't be editing the database.
I agree that the at least the first four items listed should be a minimum not to generate an error, the "Latest additions without a topic" section has been full all day today despite efforts to clear them.
Every entry ought to have a Released status, if even just set to "Future" for products announced but not yet released. However, I could argue that such items shouldn't even be in the database because they don't actually "exist" yet, and then necessitates updating such entries later when products are actually released (to change the Released status and add proper box art). Some items may never get released, so they sit forever in the database with a "Future" status. It's not a real product. If for whatever reason a planned product doesn't come to fruition (licensing, resources, lackluster demand, etc) then honestly what's the advantage of it being in the Scalemates database?
This "Future" state is very helpful for accessories, for example by Eduard, to see what is coming soon to be included in a project. The new Camel is out now, additional engines are coming in October and November. Due due that information I was bale to pre-order them to get this together with other stuff in one package. PLEASE do not drop the "Future" feature!
It is also a great way for small companies to advertise their products.
My point is, what happens if Eduard decides to cancel the release of those coming products? A product isn't really a product until it's available for sale. If you've got items pre-ordered well then they're real products, right? I'm referring to the stuff that isn't even available for pre-order, like the Dragon 1:48 AT-AT (which probably will never actually get released).
Good point about the "Future" releases especially for full kits from manufacturers like Trumpeter (3 versions of Sd.Kfz. 9 Famo since 2018 for example).

I would think to add as detail set and link to USS Arizona.
That's what I want to do, but got tripped up into assigning Kingfisher planes to the Pennsylvania-class topic.
this is indeed a though one. As the scale is so special I would indeed go for Battleship Pennsylvania-class
That's what I already did a week ago, so it could be linked to the same scale battleship kit.
Looking at a prior existing example, Constitution Class 1/650 TOS..ration Models RMC-73, 1:650), maybe these Kingfisher planes should be made multi-topic? Then they could still be linked to the Arizona kit as they are now, and also show up in Kingfisher search results....
ProCal and Procal Decals.
it is possible to merge these two?
SCM Topic: Ship of the line Soleil Royal
SCM Topic: Ship of the line WASA
and these 4 topics need "Line" amended to "line"

SCM Topic: Heavy cruiser York-class
Into this 1 single topic
SCM Topic: Heavy cruiser County-class
These are just sub-classes and we currently have these ships spread between County-class and Kent /York sub-classes. Interesting there is no separate London-class been set up - maybe this was merged sometime ago.
According to your link, county-class were Kent/London/Norfolk. York-class was smaller.
Apologies - not sure why I put York - it should be Kent Norfolk and London
So we just need Kent merged
I'm experiencing the same issue.
Was for me as well but it seems to have just been fixed.
this is fixed (ps: this is better in feature requests)
Thanks Tim. And your are right, sorry 😎
SMS Viribus Unitis (Eduard BIG5358, 1:350)
i.e Press Whats In The Box - then press View a part of the contents (there are 3 individual contents) and then press edit and not much happens
Looks ok for me (you need to select the "Edit content" button below Edit in that view).
FYI...these are "feature requests"
I press whats in the box which brings me a list of the frets I have uploaded I then use to press the little bold view next to each item this would take me to the large view of an individual fret and to the right of that large image is an edit button, I press this and used to able to edit the individual product now it doesn't work.
I think you are referring to the edit which takes you back into the whole contents. I don't like editing the Eduard frets in this view as I like to see the wording on the fret. Using this method I would have to write them down. Using my method I can actually see the fret in full view when I am entering the caption (well use to be able to anyway).
thx! this is fixed
Obviously people assume this is a rebox of the 2008 kit but it is not. I have made this change before but someone keep changing it back to a rebox.
After this change the timeline looks very strange. I guess there is some hidden connection between this kit and the older tooling BAe Red Arrows Hawk (Airfix A02005, 1:72).
Can someone please check this?
Désolé je me suis trompé de section, je mets cette demande dans Feature Requests.

with the other one
on which page?
I am referring to external galleries on the updates page the particular gallery was uploaded on 18th August 2021 and is called 70047 F4F-4 Wildcat® Expert Set! it is not a gallery and usually you can eliminate them off by selecting no gallery but this one will not budge. There was also another one a few days ago but this one has at last gone.
Ah got it! Will check
fixed! marked it as "OK" and back to "no gallery".... that picked up the change
Also have new topics stopped generating from Galleries?
When selecting an item and "Merge" the buttons are widening/ shifting right,
Both kits need to have the same: Scale + Topic
I changed but I assume you had access to make the changes yourself?
I changed, but assumed you would have access to change yourself?
If I do have the permissions, I don't know how to use them. Nothing I saw in the options open to me indicated I could move galleries.
If you press the + button and then edit you go into the product for editing I assume it was available for everyone not just higher level contributors (but I assume you are higher level anyway)
Thank you for the explanation. I just checked and yes, I do have permissions to do it.
I could only see 1 entry
thank you, I reached out to BNA
And news on that one?
which of the 2 is the brand name?
I suggest to have the brand name wilde sau resin, as one can find the kits for sale under this name in the www. However, the 109ace name refers to the facebook-page with product pictures. Maybe 109ace can be put in () after wilde sau resin (to prevent a double entry again)?
Wasn't there some sort of brand synonyms that was introduced awhile back? Can't both these "brands" co-exist as the same "company" under two different names. (It does take a special kind of "mindset" to sell your products under two different "brand names". Gotta wonder what the heck is wrong with people's brains sometimes.....)
the book also appears under topic "Modelling Skils" but when you click on it, it gives error
"Sorry, unknown topic". in fact we seem to have a problem with that topic.

in order to appear in market place, they have to affiliate themselves to scalemates. see scalemates.com/advertise.php (option 2: marketplace)
ah ok i see, it's up to them then, thanks for the info
yes correct, I did reach out to them in the past. If you know the owners, you can always ask them why they are not on scalemates 🙂
SCM Brand: LACO
Most of the products were just proposals but later some of them have been released under real company name and they are already correctly inserted here:
SCM Brand: LACI
So my suggestion is to completely delete the LACO company, including all the products
SCM Brand: Midwest Products
SCM Brand: No longer exists
We have their ship kits listed against both of these companies
I think the full name is Midwest Products Co., Inc - however I have always referred to them as Midwest products but box art seems to have Midwest Products Co and Midwest Products Co Inc names
