Hello From The State Of The Wisconsin
Posted by jwrass14 on Sunday, January 29, 2017 2:03 PM

Hello Modeler's,

I joined the in Aug of 2016 and never said hello....

I will be filling out a profile soon for all to see. I have subscribed to S.A for some time.

After a 30+ hiatus from building I started building again two years ago. In all the years I was away I continued to buy kits in hopes of building again.... I have a pretty good stash and could never build everything I have in two life times.... I'm sure many can relate! 

I have a few on the bench however nothing completed. I built my first model in the mid 60s and it was The Little Red Wagon.... Purchased at Union Grove Dragway when my Father took me to see Bill Maverick Golden and his Wheel Stander.... They actually were selling the model out of Goldens pit stall.

I have been on MCMs site for two years and IMO it's starting to become more hostile every day..... I know no forum is perfect, however I hope I find things here a bit more friendly. I'll contibute when I can and hope to learn from all.....

Respectfully Submitted,

James Rasmussen AKA Jimmy "RASS"

There is absolutely more contentiousness over on the MCM forum, but there's 10 times more traffic as well.

Most of that can be attributed to a select few members.

I find myself getting caught up in those arguments on occasion, but they're easily ignored if you want to stay above the fray.

With the higher membership & heavier traffic, it's natural that there will be more unfavorable content.

This forum has it's fair share of nastiness as well.

On a percentage basis I think you would find that there is little difference.

I wish we could avoid it all together, but it's the nature of the beast with any forum.
