So, here I am, I finally got what I have worked for since what? Four weeks now?!
I wanted to get to get to (at least) position 15 in the week's contributor's list.
Lo and behold:
"You made 137 changes in the last 7 days, Thank you! You are on position 14 in the contributors of the week list."

So, why did I want to get here?

This website can only function if the IT system is there (thanks Scalemates!!!) AND the database is fed continuously. Only then can we all really enjoy it.
I realised that there are certain of our mates who tirelessly and continuously do so (they'll surely recognise themselves) on a daily basis.

I just wanted to know what it really takes to get to the "Top Contributor's List".
Well, now I know! It's *WORK*, hard work!
Between scanning instruction manuals, correcting erroneous info, adding new kits or products, listing magazine articles (I hate that task!!!), finding logos for brands, etc. you have to stay hours and hours before your screen and type, click, search, ...

Let me therefore just say that I salute the people who spend so much time and effort to keep all this running and up to date. I doff my hat to you!

Now, you may ask yourself something in the line of
"and now, you pompous prick, are you going on contributing and shut up about all this?"

Yes! Cause it's also quite fun...

;)

Wayne K Thank you. And thanks also to all webmasters and contributors to this site. It is a world-class resource and greatly enriches my modelling experience...

Hi there!
In my early adult life, I managed to drive an old Simca 1100 car that we (my wife and I) lovingly called "Titine". We had quite a few other cars after Titine finally died (while desperately trying to drive up the corkscrew ramp of a parking garage), but this one really stood up in our memory.

I'm looking for a model of the Simca (Chrysler) 1100 but can't seem to find one, except an unaffordable one from JPS Miniatures Auto (K 199 | 1:43).

Is there someone here who knows about a Simca 1100 model? Thanks in advance!

Cuajete Hello René. I think there is a die-cast page parallel to Scalemates. Maybe your wished model can be found there.

2. June, 19:15
René "Bilbo" Bartholemy Thanks! I'll check.

Question for the biplane experts on ScaleMates:
There have been a number of "three seaters" produced during the Great War: Caudron G.6, Caudron R.11, Letord A.1-7, etc.
Although they have been build in decent numbers (ie a few hundreds each), I can't find a single kit of those kites. Any hint? Any reason why there are none? Am I really condemned to scratch one some day? ;)
7. May, 14:08
Augie Hi Bilbo,

The answer for that, is not something special for the biplane experts.. reason you wont find any will be the same reason that many others are not produced.. no manufacturers have taken the risk to do one. They go for the ones they know will sell in numbers.

You might get lucky and a smaller manufacturer will do a short run kit (or resin) but the big boys are unlikely

Hope that helps

Augs
7. May, 14:12
René "Bilbo" Bartholemy That's just it. In the 70ies, 80ies and even 90ies, there have been quite a lot of kits representing lesser known planes (mostly in 1:72). Now, just after the WWI centenary, I would have guessed that more would be produced. The outlier here being of course Wingnut Wings...
But, yes, Augie, your answer is valid. Infuriating, but valid. ;)
7. May, 17:52
Spanjaard Design one, 3D print it, place it here.... and maybe you will get people to ask for copies.... maybe a business possibility here ;)
