  1. There is truth in what you say, and I can only speak for myself. But as you can see from the number of posts I have made (nowhere nearly as many as yours, admittedly), I have indeed contributed to many conversations over the years, beginning in the days when it was "3 Steves." I needed to take an extended break from the forum and from building in general, for various reasons. Sometimes other priorities take precedent in life. Sometimes things simply have a natural life span. I dunno. I just don't think it's quite as simple as "if you build it they will come." However, be it known that this is
  2. I am relieved to hear that ARC is not dead. I have also gone through times when every waking moment is spent working just to stay afloat.There literally is no time for anything else, let alone running a labour-intensive site such as this. I wish Steve all the best, and I hope for a time when he is able to return to the forums. Cheers!
  3. Wow, that is stellar work! Love the camo and weathering, I think your post-shading is pretty authentic, as far as I can tell from the photos. Congrats on a really successful build after your hiatus from modeling.
  4. Fabulous work!! I especially love your faded/weathered OD paintwork. It looks very realistic. Cheers, and thanks for sharing your work!
  5. People are people the world over. It does not matter what country you come from, or where you currently live. Human beings can often be incredibly kind, selfless, altruistic, charitable and empathic. The same people can get behind the wheel of an automobile or an airplane for that matter, and something bizarre happens to them, and suddenly they are the only people who exist or who matter on Earth. This is a human condition, not a national or racial or ethnic issue. The trick is to learn how to access our better selves more often, and to control our base desires that can be harmful to others.
  6. I normally use a toothpick with a flattened end to avoid ripping the decal. Works a charm with most washes!
  7. That looks fabulous, Dai!! Another great build! Can't wait to see it with the weathering done. The decals really did go down well, and zero silvering as well.
  8. I do love those shiny metal objects!! Looks fabulous, Dai!
  9. That's a really cool idea. As long as the decals are well-set and completely flat so as not to create any ridges. I think that would work!
  10. If you look closely at the stencils on the model on the box, you can see that they also silvered. Don't know if that was because of the way they were applied, or it is the decals themselves?
  11. Yes, your photo shows clearly what you are describing. Compared to the other decals, it's pretty bizarre. Almost as if they came from two different manufacturers... if that is even possible....?
  12. Thanks so much for the info and the picture of the bottle. Cheers, Dai!
