  5. Hi Rex, Scalemates is like Wikipedia, everybody can contribute including complementing or correcting the timelines. Here are the easy steps to do it: When looking at the specific kit (in this case: Phantom 1:72 - Eastern Express The timeline shows on the right hand side a link "edit timeline" You can 1) Mark if it is a rebox or the release year. In this case, if you can be more specific than 200x. feel free to change it to the real year. Linking kits or removing links is also easy. Just look in the list and click to add a link, or remove an existing link. Everybody can add miss
  6. Is a kit a new tool or a rebox from a kit from the 60's. A question every scale modeller asks at least a few times a year :)/> On www.scalemates.com you can see it at a glance. Here are some nice examples showing kit timelines. When you need more detailed info and look for a review, links to ARC and other review sites are linked as well. We have this in a database with 150.000 kits, aftermarket sets, decals... Hope it helps as a tool Cheers, Tim
  7. Thx for the feedback on scalemates! In the last months we worked heavily improving the usability and quality of our stash management features. Also searching our reference database (150.000 kits & aftermarket sets) is so much more intuitive with the new search engine. @ned: looking forward to an updated review, except that the site is hosted in Belgium is about the only thing which is still valid after our relaunch ;) Enjoy the working week! Tim
  8. Excel Import was not on the roadmap yet, first time I hear it.... but that does't mean it is not a great idea! - How many items do you have in your stash? (roughly is good) - Could you be so kind and send me your Excelsheet?scalemates I would need at least Productnumber, Company to find a matching entry in our database. (won't be easy as some companies have products with the same product number...but I could have an intermediate screen...my brain starts already implementing your idea) Yes absolutely, you can mark it private. Awesome! please send me your excel sheet as well. This way
  9. Hi Rodney, Cataloging a stash is indeed one of the key features. (although I know some people who use scalemates solely for the search engine and the kit database) However I wanted to add a bit more arround it. I also allows you to manage your projects (on the bench, ideas) and group multiple products (eg. Revell Kit + Aires cockpit set + TwoBobs Decals + ...). You can attach photoalbums in context of your project... To see it in practice: Here is my Revell Tornado Project http://www.scalemates.com/profiles/mate.php?id=10001&p=projects&project=22 Scalemates provides following ke
  10. Hi Ron, would be interested to know if the decal collection which is missing is from particular companies? If so I could contact these companies and bulk upload the data for you Cheers, Tim
  11. Hi, If you want to keep track of your model stash go for www.scalemates.com With 86.000 products and aftermarket sets in the database we are the largest and most popular online stash management tool covering ALL subjects. And yes, it is free It offers some advanced features you can not find anywhere else. Here is a link to my online stash: Personal Stash - Tim on scalemates.com As a picture says more than 1000 words, here is a snapshot of my stash As you see, all kits related to a specific topic are nicely grouped. A nice boxart image helps identifying your kits. Off course we suppor
  12. Hi Four Corners, Well this cross reference exists. Example 1: H-60 Blackhawk family in scale 1:35 Example 2: The long history of the FROG Hunter Example 3: The Tomcat timeline On scalemates.com we have timelines like these for over 80.000 products. Via the search engine you find the kits via title/productnumber/topic/scale The good thing is, everybody can contribute. If data is missing, you can add it yourself (very easy) Or are you looking for another format? Kind regards, Tim
  13. Hi, Following page allows you to search for walkarounds on the web: Walkaround Search Engine If a walkaround is missing, everybody can add it to the database. Kind regards, Tim
  14. Hi, We just created this Walkaround Search Engine We all use walkarounds to super detail our models. Great websites include ARC and Primeportal with hundreds of them. But there are many smaller websites as well. Personal websites, club pages,... including a lot of interesting stuff as well. These are difficult to find in Google. The scale modeler search engine of Scalemates.com now includes "Walkarounds" as well. 4500+ walkaround links of 20+ websites, nicely categorised by topic, with thumbnail preview. (We know there are many more, these are constantly being added by our crawler or man
  15. "just subscribe to what your interested in and let them update you" This is indeed the goal but in my opinion Facebook fails here big-time - You only see the news of companies you know (and liked) - If you liked a company and don't like their news on a regular basis their news goes of your news feed I checked, Eduard is doing a great job, but in the last 2 weeks I saw just a very small subset of what they posted. cheers from Belgium :)
  16. Thx, glad you like it Well this feature is actually already present. An aftermarket set can be linked to specific kit (eg. kit number X, kits from a family (eg. all Tamiya Vipers based on same mouldings) or marked as a generic set) When looking at a kit we will show all generic sets, all sets for the same family + all generic ones. The problem is that many aftermarket sets are currently assigned as "generic". I know a few contgributors are attacking this and it gets better by the day. :) cheers Tim
  17. Yes I do, I wish I had more time to build them Thx glad you like it, more and more people are using it to manage their stash. try it, it is fun :)
  18. Hi Breadneck, "They have it pretty much narrowed down, still i have seen them missing this and that" I agree with you, we have a lot but there are still gaps. The good thing, and also the strenght of scalemates, is that the modeling community can contribute and add missing kits to the database. Or when they know a link to a review everybody can add it. The contributors are very active, alone last week over 3000 edits were done to the kit database. With every new kit added we get closer to the ultimate kit reference database. Also when viewing a kit and it was built on ARC you get a nice li
  19. Hi ARC, On m.scalemates.com, the new mobile version of www.scalemates.com you can access and manage your stash of kits and paints while on the road. So when you are in a shop or at an event and you don't remember if you already have a kit or aftermarket set you can quickly verify it on your smartphone! Adding kits to your stash is easy, find the kit in our huge database and just click a button. Here is a view on my personal stash: Tims Stash hope this is usefull tip cheers Tim ps: it is free
  20. looking forward to see them when you created them.
  21. Hello ARC, I'm happy to announce that there is a new version of www.scale-rotors.com Come and have a look and I hope you will like it cheers from Belgium Tim
