I haven't heard from Lou in a while either. I hope he's well.

As far as my own activity on the database is concerned, I've stopped it because the owners don't seem to show any interest whatsoever in this site. They haven't even removed the link to the hoobydb database they're no longer cooperating with. But they generate revenue.

If you want a decent database, I'm afraid you'll have to look elsewhere.

I'd love to save my collection saved on DAC database on an Excel file as well but dunno how to do that. DAC haven't been updating it's own database even with new releases.

I just imported my DAC collection into DIMA. It imported about 90% of my collection. Their database is up to date with even the Velocity releases. I also keep a word doc with all my models for backup.

Default Re: Database Updates

G'day all,

I'm Lou and since February 2013 I've been looking after the database for all 1/400 and 1/200 models.

Back in October 2014 the database froze. I was still able to input new models, but they would'nt show up unless you knew its ID # number. So pretty useless.

However at the end of February 2015 the whole system on here broke and froze. All the over 400 new model entries I'd done since late 2014 were deleted by the system (except for two entries). I have also been locked out of the database update page.

Furthermore the system now won't allow you to add any more models to your collection or.. allow you to change the order of your models on your lists.

More worrying is that in the database of models, various 'Airlines' have been deleted (blank spaces appear where they used to be). It seems everyday more disappears datawise from this site.

I have on several occations tried contacting the owners MASMedia about the problems. Only last week did I get a reply with the promise it would be fixed by the end of that day... a week later and nothing...

I implore you to move your collection data to DiMA Immediately. It may not be on this site at all in days considering all the problems that keep building up on this site.

DAC / Wings900 is fine if you want to chat or sledge models (The Wild West of Modelling forums!) However if you use this to keep log of your collection then please move your collection to...

Forums - Diecast Model Aircraft

Before this site loses all your model info.

Good luck... Lou

Hi there,
DiMA is not our site so we can not offer support. Your password to this site won't work on DiMA.

I cant believe the content from the owners of this site.

They took over and promised the world, nowow this forum is a shadow of what it once was. I hope you guys are proud, the database of this site was once an amazing piece of work and its ruined through laziness and inability to manage a forum in which you clearly have no interest in.

Good stuff guys.

G'day,

I've been keeping lists and media releases of all the models released in 1/400 by Aeroclassics, Phoenix Models, JC Wings and Gemini since November 2014 when the database broke along with most of the 1/200 models released by IF, Gemini, Phoenix/JFox, Hobby Master, JC Wings, Hogan and recently Aeroclassics too. Pluse Herpa 1/500 since we lost that information too. Also several of the other military scales too.

I've sent VS-Admin a PM outlining how to go ahead from here and drag the database back to its former glory.

I look forward to a reply and the opportunity to fix the database.

Cheers Lou

Copied and pasted? say 100 releases per month across all manufactures.

thats 1100 per year taking into account there is one month a year we dont get any releases.

Sure, paste 1100+ models info into the thread...

Do you guys even know or care about the hobby?

While I can't speak for the whole team, I know for myself that I am woefully ignorant of the hobby. Not why they hired me. We know forum support and site management. Our goal is to maintain a functional site for you and the community to do your thing.

So you have been doing this for a year and this is where we are? What are you "managing"?
