    We had a thread on this not long ago.  I thought it was zinc chromate but was proven wrong. They were bare aluminum

    Sort of related, but this community is the opposite of how i “learned” to make models.  When i was a kid in the late 1970s and early 1980s, i toiled away in our attic, alone, teaching myself how to use an airbrush, reading magazines and Shep Paine inserts in Monogram 1/48 kits, and it was a solitary pursuit.  Research was done at the library or by buying books.  That was it.   I learned a lot, but when i came back to the hobby as an adult, the internet was in full swing. 
     
    i am still amazed at the generosity and “here is how i did that” information that people are so willing to share.  I have learned SO much from the amazing members here, and am comfortable posting a WIP on MY first LSP, only to find even more assistance and generosity, people chiming in on ways to handle things, taking the time to answer very basic questions either in response to a question on the how to section or even answering private messages.  The positivity and support is just astounding.  The patience with new members is endless. 
     
    I had assumed that since i saw this as a solitary hobby that people would closely guard their secrets, but its the opposite. People want to share their hard earned tips and tricks, people who are so far above me in skill level, that its just amazing. 

    that attitude has rubbed off on me, and i find myself doing the same thing, if something works or doesn't work, i share it.  Theres not much yet that i can help others with, but this site has DEFINITELY made me a far better modeler, and the results i am getting on my build are far better than i could ever “teach” myself if i didn’t  have this resource. 

    i recognize that i am a very inexperienced modeler, but i am performing at a level i would never have believed, just because of the camaraderie here.  
     
    Everyone here can see for themselves who their favorite, most talented modelers are, but i for one would not even vote on a thread trying to select the “best”.   I am amazed at the talent here every time i open the site.  
     
    this place is my modeling home.

    The thing I enjoy the most is watching members grow their skillset to be among the best. That said, there will always be modelers with more and less talent, building/ painting strategies, and time spent per build.
       Welcome. Pull up a chair, enjoy.

    Already considered and dismissed. Singling out "the best" is very subjective, and does a major disservice to those that don't "make the cut". We have everything here from beginners to world class talent, and all are viewed equally as fellow enthusiasts, regardless of perceived skill level.

    Yeah, good read. 20 year project with almost no help, then the Brit gov't glommed onto it.
    A sad end to an interesting story.

    It’s even more amazing that these guys got up in the morning, drove in to work, poked and prodded “the envelop” for a couple of hours, then drove home at the end of the day just like everybody else.  Giants among men these early test pilots were.
