    When it comes to ill feeling on OSW though, you can bet your bottom dollar of at least one certain member stuck in the middle of it!
    Lol. Does that member realise you mean him though?

Granted, I may not always post praise or support for it.
    I also have more admiration for fellow kitbashers, but I wouldn't criticise other people for buying and displaying their OOB figures. As long as they're happy why should kitbashers and scratchbuilders bother about it?

    You can see from my avatar and threads that I scratchbuild as well as bash... yet do I give a rat's bum hole about so-and-so's fresh and minty Stormtrooper? Nope. I can admire a boxed figure as much as someone's bashed figure.

    I also pre-ordered a movie based figure and someone asked why don't I just bash the same figure? The head isn't available, the clothing isn't available... that's why. I could use 3D printed parts, but they'd cost more than the boxed figure, and I'd still have to find a head and clothing.

    This a big hobby (literally) and there is more than enough room for all of us, whatever our abilities or preferences. If you're not interested in seeing someone's new Marty McFly and deLorean then don't look... simples.

    We must consider too that the person showing their HT (or whatever) pride and joy and may have had it on their xmas list for some time, it may have been bought as a one off treat, family may have clubbed together to buy it. We don't know. Slamming them personally as they display it is wrong. I would be mortified and run away from a forum that did that to me.

    Also we don't know the age, health or metal capacity of the poster, making the assumption that they are your equal is wrong. For example a lady asked a question (not 1/6th related) on my FB page - a simple easy to answer question but before I could answer a friend jumped on and banged out a sharp reply in CAPITALS like she was an idiot. I was saddened because he didn't know this gentle, simple woman who hasn't had the kind of education that he has had.

    Hobbies can attract those who may have less friends than they want and may be less able to deal with the real world, which is why they love their hobby and the people they share it with. My son - a very intelligent young man - has Aspergers ,I know this to be true of him.

    I am not suggesting for a moment that all 1/6th hobbyists are subnormal, friendless, loonies, I'm just saying that you don't know who is behind SuperWolf5 they may be less than Super and no Wolf.
