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.

Steve Wilson ...
Reading this Tim... I visualize your building area like a Blue Peter studio, lots of sticky back plastic, Copydex, Pva, Cereal boxes and Fairy Liquid bottles, (woof! woof! down Shep')...
Listen... once you've cut your 'ead off mate, you can always use it as a grimace smiley and stick it in-between those empty brackets in your post. ((( :D ))) jesting Tim, not serious, we're not beating a path to your door!!!... yet.

Roger Judd What about all metal or metal/ resin kits? I have a 1/144 'Red Eagle Miniatures' AEG G.IV that is almost finished. I haven't added it to my stash as there doesn't seem to be any similar kits listed here. It's not for table top gaming; just a one-off impulse buy from e**y.

Steve Wilson To me Roger, that and the like are fine to add, they are model kits...
The majority of my kits in 1:20 and 1:24 are Metal/Resin kits. I say add yours too!!!

gorbygould Well I for one would like to see your airbase diorama when it's done Tim. In the words of Wellington, "publish and be damned". ;)

John Bollig Ok, lets make one thing clear, what I am against is diecast prebuilt metal and plastic toys. I am aware of Resin and resin metal kits. They are considered kits .

Tim Annear Hi Gorby and thanks mate, I completely understand the views here and rather than being burnt at the stake, beheaded or having my diorama likened to that of a backwards 4 year old, I'm happy to leave the debate.

My only response to any hobbyist would be that I have a hobby which involves building aircraft kits and dioramas and I love all aspects of what I do. what you love and love what you do! The pleasure I get planning, researching, building and the finished product from whatever I've built is for me and me only. I can't determine what is right or wrong for anyone else but in order to not draw flak, I will refrain from posting pictures and it can stay private.

Interesting footnote....

Alec K Just curious what is at issue here? My quick look (and I mean brief) through the database revealed a single user who apparently uses Scalemates to catalog their diecast collection (89 entries). If the concerns expressed above relate to additions of items not related to scale modeling to the database and similar activities, I am in agreement. However, what Tim Annear is describing falls, seems to me, perfectly within the scope of scale modeling; I certainly do not see any non-scale modeling related listings in Tim's stash or wishlist. Again, just trying to understand the basis for all the hoopla. Cheers

Glenn . It's quite simple Alec. NONE of us want Pre-Built (Buy off the shelf, open the box or rip it out of the plastic bubble pack) Models/Toys LISTED! Such as Pre Built Die Cast Collectables eg. Corgi, Hot Wheels etc. Added on Scalemates. If you put it in a diorama then i guess fine, As long as it's with something you have MADE eg. Glued, Screwed or Snapped together from MODEL KIT items! Everyone is well aware of the full die cast (whitemetal) model cars and other items eg. Warhammer kits that you have to build. That's fine they are kits. It's the other stuff mentioned above were talking about. And no one is saying you can't photograph it and include it on your build. Like i said before, IF YOU DIDN"T BUILD IT, DON'T LIST IT! simples! :)
