Hello, I am unable to link "rebox" to the original item in figures. Original release (new tool 2011) is WWII British Infantry (Airfix A01763, 1:72 WWII British Infantry (Airfix A01763, 1:72)), first rebox 2018 with changed item number is WWII British Infantry (Airfix A00763, 1:72 WWII British Infantry (Airfix A00763, 1:72)) and second rebox with another item number, new box illustration and claimed different scale 1/76 on the box (but is still the same kit) is WWII British Infantry (Airfix A00763V, 1:72 WWII British Infantry (Airfix A00763V, 1:72)). How do I make it? Or could You help, please?

Hi,
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.
29. August, 11:07
Eddie Mann
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".
31. August, 14:16
Starbase101
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.
15. September, 12:58
Richmond
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.
16. September, 08:58
Starbase101
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.
16. September, 16:00
Eddie Mann
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.
16. September, 17:18
Starbase101
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?
16. September, 17:59
bughunter
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.
16. September, 18:07
Starbase101
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).
16. September, 18:19
Eddie Mann
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).

Where should a set of 1:426 Vought Kingfisher planes for the USS Arizona be added, in SCM Topic: Vought OS2U Kingfisher as the only 1:426 entry and unlinkable to the Arizona kit, or in SCM Topic: Battleship Pennsylvania-class so it can be linked as a detail item for the model kit it's intended for?
8. September, 00:34
Eddie Mann
I would think to add as detail set and link to USS Arizona.
8. September, 01:10
Starbase101
That's what I want to do, but got tripped up into assigning Kingfisher planes to the Pennsylvania-class topic.
8. September, 02:03
scalemates
this is indeed a though one. As the scale is so special I would indeed go for Battleship Pennsylvania-class
12. September, 18:59

That's what I already did a week ago, so it could be linked to the same scale battleship kit.
12. September, 19:24

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....

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).

I just changed the origin for this kit to new tool Hawk (Airfix A02005A, 1:72)
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.

1:72 Hawk (Airfix A02005A)
 


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).

I just added a book of the series "Legends of Naval Warfare", but this is a subseries of the "Legends of Warfare" brand. Several Scalemates additions of this series do not specify to which subseries the entry belongs, probably because the specific category ("aviation", "naval", "ground", "units") appears as a somewhat unconspicuous subscript of the series title. Therefore I propose that the series main title "Legends of Warfare", that in se probably is not used on any of the books, be renamed to one of these subseries (one that was not added already, some people did add a correct series title). I found 12 more entries for the "Naval" subseries, these should then be moved to my newly created series. Some entries are double, like the Soryu and C130 books.

If you do a search on kits for "Title", there are a huge number of entries with "Title" as the description and most do not have product numbers. These probably should be mass deleted since there is no way to know what they are.

Sorry some of these were probably me as I have been having issues with scalemates crashing on me when uploading new kits - I am working away from home at the moment and the hotel internet is not the best.

Is anyone experiencing issues with adding new kits - the wheel just spins and Scalemates crashes. I am working away from home and using hotel wi-fi which isn't the best but I am not 100% sure is it the wi-fi is causing the issue.
