Hi Jean-Luc

not commenting the reviews, but again you forgot to mention the scale in the forum post subject line. Someone asked this a few weeks ago and I must say that I would prefer this too. Rowan wanted to add this to the guide line but probably forgot about it.

Thanks!

all the best

Hi Steffen

I've renamed the thread. Jim is also looking at adding the scales automatically on the Frontpage reviews list but, as ever, he has quite a list of technical suggestions to work on.

All the best

Hi Rowan

I just wrote J-L a PM.

I do not want to stir your Aeroscale /Kitmaker - staff routine. But as it was brought up recently and you were quite open to the issue I wanted to add my thought. I meant all review and feature posts. This may bee a bit annoying, but as I only build 1/48 scale it would be a bit more comfortable for myself.

OTOH it is of course interesting to have a look beyond one's own nose .... sometimes but I prefer to choose if I want and am not forced to do.

Just my 2 ct ...

all the best

Steffen

P.S. thanks for the fast response and work (renaming the thread). I know I should write it more often but you (and the staff) are doing a very good job!!

Hi again

You'll have noticed it's what I've been doing for my What's New posts where appropriate since the suggestion. Thanks for the reminder to add a guideline for the others in Aerostaff.

All the best

Hi Steffen,

Thanks for the reminder, I forgot... and thanks to Rowan for adding the scale in the Title.

However, I'm not sure we should do this for Features or On Displays. I mean, if the model is nice to look at and the text informative, it's not important if the subject is 1/48, 1/72, 1/32 or 1/144 scale. Or...

Thanks Jean-Luc!

It is just a matter of personal taste and while I think it is most helpful for reviews threads (i.e. necessary) it is just a nice addition for the built features ...

As you know I only build 48 scale and sometimes a nice build model can motivate me to start an own project so I like to know in which scale a built model is, when I open the thread.... (or not open it, if it is in the "wrong scale")

Thanks for your nice reviews and your patience with my special wishes!

all the best

Steffen
