we are going to the IPMS nationals and are looking for some food ideas where to eat at the convention. We have some mobility issues and concerns in eating establishments. Also want to know here the nearest hospital. Thank you in advance.

Have a question. Is there a model kit that you thought was bad but when you built it, changed your opinion of the kit or company. ?
06. May at 15:21:40 Share
H K The StuGs from Bronco. Great kits, not the usual million senseless tiny parts.
06. May at 18:26:47
Alec K Yes - Revell Germany kits for me. I think it has much to do with my historical perception of what used to be produced by a company, and what they make now. Airfix is another similar example.
06. May at 18:43:15
John Bollig I have always loved revel of Germany. I love their 1/72 scale Hawker Hunters and constantly scour the web for the frog/matchbox reissues. I have been loyal to airfix but did not like the old worn our moulds in some of the kits. The new kits are fantastic and I hope to buy more soon

Building a hobby boss 1/72 scale P 47 and a bit befuddled by the cowling and front of the plane. It desn't fit right and even more worrisome is the gap that I had to fill. These easy assembly kits are harder to build than the old airfix kits.

IMHO, Hot wheels have no place on scalemates. I know that might offend some people, but it Hot wheels are not model kits. Not even corgi diecast airplanes should be allowed. This place is for model kits. Someone needs to get Tim on board and tell him wth is going on with his website.

David Jung John, the book reference was weak, assuming someone has verified they all contain content suitable for modeling. :) Would you approve of the prefinished models from Revell/Monogram et al that require minimal assembly? They hardly qualify as "kits". And there's a plethora of miniatures here both gaming and otherwise that are not kits. As a side note, IPMS is going through a bit of this with die-cast. There are allegedly some who strip them down, rebuild and refinish so the amount of work involved possibly exceeds some traditional kits. As a reference site, I would personally err on the side of inclusion over exclusion and just create a die-cast category, but it's not my site.

H K " As a reference site, I would personally err on the side of inclusion over exclusion and just create a die-cast category"
This! Don`t forget, more stuff= more visitors= more money for Tim= more stuff for us all.
I don`t like cars, guess what, I don`t look at these topics ;)
02. May at 09:25:01
scalemates sorry no Diecast, there are certainly 200.000 die cast kits out there. this will hurt user experience. If die cast is allowed we should also include paper kits or RC or Marlin trains

Steve Wilson With you 200% Tim ;)
02. May at 09:48:50
John Bollig Tim, I agree with you. Perhaps a new website would be in order for our diecast friends. I have nothing against diecast. But, they are not plastic kits. David Jung, I have built kits that require almost no completion skills whatsoever. I really think they blur the line and the inclusion maybe in some cases, questionable. Tim is the owner of the site and he says no diecast. As far as IPMS goes, I would love to meet with you at the 2017 convention in Omaha, Nebraska. it would be fun to have a discussion with you on the merits of diecast kits. The P in IPMS says {Plastic). The m stands for (model).
02. May at 12:59:38
David Jung John, I have reservations for Omaha, but am in the middle of chemo so going will be a last minute decision. IPMS got past the "plastic" issue a long time ago. :) So I think a core issue is if there is ANY amount of construction or finishing involved to bring the item to a finished state. (And then define finished, heh.) If you have to do "modeling" to reach that state, then seems like inclusion would be appropriate. Roco fits, Hot Wheels no, Corgi and similar also fail although I'd personally permit them. (My potentially vague adult-based back of hand decider would be if the pre-finished/pre-assembled item was intended for play versus collecting.) I don't normally get too involved in these types of discussions, but I've noticed the tribal purity issue coming up lately--probably was always there. I'm also a bit into black powder firearms and you wouldn't believe the I-will-resign angst those organizations are having over including modern in-line types versus the traditional percussion/flint. In any event, Tim has decided although there are already paper kits here that he says he doesn't want. :) --David

I am going to Omaha.... see you all at the IPMS nationals '

14. April at 03:48:55 Share
Rex John, after Buffcon last weekend, Anne "informed" me that it might be best for us to stick to local shows until after the Chattanooga NATS are held. This Buffcon was the first time we went, after being with the Buffalo Girl for over 13 years. This was the first time in all of those years that we were in Buffalo the same time as the show, lol.

Anyway, after she explained her comment, I agreed that I might get more done for the NATS if I waited until Chattanooga to attend again.

I know this sort of sucks for our chances of meeting each other,,,,,,,,,but, I do hope you have a good time in Omaha.
14. April at 09:26:04
John Bollig Understandable, Rex have a great day

We are going to Omaha for the IPMS. It probably will be my last one. Let's hope that I can complete my model collection. Our health is not the best.

I have a question for experts. Are AZ model kits limited production injection moulded kits and why are they more expensive than other 1/72 scale kits.?
05. February at 15:20:21 Share
Urban Gardini Most of them is but over the last years they've started to give us excellent kits done with metal molds. But their previous short run kits is great as well but a bit more demanding to build.
05. February at 16:01:39
John Bollig I have been thinking about buying a few of the metal winged hurricanes since the Airfix ones are fabric winged. I am really on a budget and would like to get some value for what I have to pay.
12. February at 21:06:45
Urban Gardini You usually get a smal fret with seatbelts and some other stuff with the kits and that's good in my book.
