This will be my last post in this thread.
It is unfortunate to see how your words are misinterpreted and how you are attacked and bullied by some members. To all the helpers, thank you for your support. To all the haters, I will never be bullied or intimidated.
If you check my very first post it ends like: "Please PM me if you have one to give away. Thank you." This does not mean, nor does it imply any demand. I simply asked whoever might have one to give away, to PM me. This simply excludes anyone who doesn't have one, or has one but doesn't want to give it away. As simple as that. No need to be mean or lecture on how I should have done this or that. No need to judge or be sarcastic.
We all share the same passion of making models here. If you can help a fellow modeler, do so. If you can't or if you are not willing to, then don't. Nothing good comes out of being mean and bitter to another member.
If I followed up on this thread after a year, it was only because I thought it fell through the cracks and got forgotten. I was only curious.
