Default A wonderful site!

I can't tell you how much I enjoy coming aboard each day and looking at the material on this site. In the few short weeks I have been a member I have learned SO much about the craft of ship modelling. And not only is it informative, it is wonderful to look at the ships in their various stages of construction. I also appreciate the give and take between the members and how everyone is willing to help out and give advice.

Thank you for the compliment Richard. Itís very much appreciated.
We have a terrific group of modelers here. The Forum works due to all of the membersí contributions and input.
The Internet and its ability to connect people world wide has been a great asset to our hobby. Itís like having a modeling club right in oneís own home town.
Again, I thank you and all of the members for your efforts and support.

Nice one Chap!!
I couldn't agree more!!
"The" site is definitley like having an ongoing modelling group at home.

The Internet is indeed a wonderful resource if used in the correct manner.

This site brings together many nations and people who's passion is Ship Modelling and, as I have said before, illustrates the many hours/days/years of devotion to the art.

I am only one of many that enjoy "Coming Aboard" on a daily basis!!

Cheers and regards,

Harry.

Hi All,

Sounds like what we have here is a "mutual admiration society." And I would like to echo all the wonderful comments re: this site, in this thread.
