Don't know but I am sure this forum is dying.
Postings of actual models are fewer combined with endless criticism about new releases.......

Arriving any time now Ben! main reason for lack of posting pictures is that others always turn into in to a 'bashing' thread or go totally off topic.

Completely agree, the nose is 0.5 mm out, the tyres are not the right shape of round.
Why would people spend hard earned money and post pictures for a small minority to trash their thrill.
Air spotters have some good pictures of this lovely model on their Web site

The thread title was non-obvious.

I used to post my new models 5-6 years ago, but all the negative comments got annoying. So I stopped posting new pics, and decided to just enjoy it as is. Ignorance is bliss!

But my priorities have changed now and restricting myself to just 747s here and there.

Exactly my point. I get fed up with the "rivet counters"

It's a model its may not be perfect but as long as it looks about right that thats fine.
But some glaring errors eg ARD Comet tailfin are unforgiveable. However I think it's extremely bad etiquette,even insulting, to moan about a model when someone has spent time and money to post a picture of their new joy.
Leave the critique to a separate thread.

I tried to get this point across several years ago when I was posting photos of my new acquisitions. Certain individuals (who now rarely visit this forum these days) would criticize the models I'd post photos of. That is one of the main reasons why I stopped posting photos on any regular basis.

I concur.
And I apologise for adding to the thread de-railment.
It is one reason why I stated that I will probably never post a picture of one of my models.

It is sad, because I have been tempted to buy models which others posted pictures of. One example recently is the IF200 "AirForce 1" 707 which @Aussiejets posted. Although it is (was) out of my criteria, it was just too beutiful to pass up. I even enjoy my IF200 B737 and B727 models. The sacrilege!

I'm trying to find out if any IF 747s have swiveling or removable gear like JC and Gemini. The only one I own is IF KLM B733 "Sir G. de Havilland". And it doesn't.

That is so true what you just said, i believe that's the main reason members such as: Retroguy left this forum for good...
