      Hi all,
      I really don't like the tone of some the comments lately in the Forums. It almost feels like everybody is agitated and ready to attack with an insult or a comment completely unwarranted only to piss off the other person. Well, everyone, please take a chill pill and relax.

      Seems like some people get ticked off when they see someone criticizing a kit, calling out imperfections, or simply trying to figure out a way to fix an issue. Calling it "good enough" simply isn't good enough for most people, and that's why 99% of us are here; to try to fix all the flaws and make the kit as perfect as possible. If that bothers you, or you think every kit is good enough, and we should be grateful just to have it in the first place, then simply don't read the thread. Be happy with what you got and leave others alone. Yes, there is no such thing as a perfect kit, if there is one, I certainly haven't seen it, and to get on other people's case about trying to fix the imperfections is simply wrong.

      Another trend I'm noticing is unnecessary comments and thread highjacking. We need to stay focused on the topic at hand. If you have another topic to discuss, please open another thread. A thread dealing with airliner windows, does not need a question inserted at the end, like, "by the way, the engines suck too, how can I fix those?" NO! Please start a new thread about those sucky engines, no pun intended.

      Please folks, lets all get a long. We're a very small community and occupy a very small niche; lets not get divided over the very thing that's supposed to bring us together in the first place. Lets be as constructive and helpful as possible. Thanks for your cooperation.

      Regards,

      ahmed

      Hi Ahmed,

      While I agree entirely with you, I believe the rule should work both ways. Criticizing a kit in a constructive way is fine. Calling it "crap" isn't. If anyone has anything to say about a kit, they can do it politely.

      I must admit a few years ago I would easily use the word above to qualify a kit or a decal, on the AMD or here. I suppose I have grown older and a bit wiser

      Cheers,

      Laurent
