Friendships, tanks…and chocolates.
iModeler makes more than scale kits, scratchbuilt projects, and dioramas. It builds friendships. By nature I think we modelers can be an insular tribe (do we become more self-contained because we are modelers or find modeling because we tended to be introspective as kids?), and I suspect a lot of us only relate to other people on our own terms.
The tag line for this forum is ‘social scale modeling’ and that’s exactly what we do. From Jeff singlehandedly making sure every new member has at least one friend, to the huge efforts that go into the amazing group builds (I really wish I had more time), to the caring, inclusive and professional attitude of the admin team, this site really delivers in terms of friendship.
Today in the post I received this from a fellow iModeler. It’s not the first time someone has reached out to me in friendship recently. This gift came from he result of some banter around tankers being a bit ‘eccentric’. In truth I accept that all of our tribe are a bit bonkers.
Life (and people, I guess) can be hard and relentless. I just want to say thanks to all my friends... also – tankers are definitely amazing.
