Currently, over on MRR forums, there is a video tutorial on building a card stock kit. It’s very simplified, not one of our kits but some of the information is useful. I say some of because I have to take exception with several of the points that they swear by, that I think are just plain wrong. I faced the dilema of making a contrary coment or, not wanting to start a flame war, let it go. I made the contrary comment. The information was just too glaringly wrong.
I want to see more cardstock designers activly making kits available. I love what “Scale Scenes” does for instance. They have a unique approach and the results speak for themselves. I really respect companies like “Metcalfe Models”, who have been around a long time.
Scale Model Plans (the tutorial authors) have taken a unique approach to what they offer. Though their models are very simple, they do fill a niche that needs filling. Only time will tell how they develope and wether or not they embrace a more quality stance. They obviously have the passion, but only experience will up their own standards, as they learn what’s possible. We have seen a couple of others emerge as well who might give us a challenge, but not yet.
We’ll just have to keep aware of the slight but growing warmth under our posterior and be motivated to keep upping our game . Lets keep our chosen modeling method growing and fresh. If we fall down, let us know. If you see a glaring bit of bad info, yell. (We know our instructions, or lack of , sucks.) We’ll work on it. Ultimately you vote with your dollars. Thanks for being involved with us.
