    Sorry to bother you guys, Shocked

    Did anyone have any time and money to visit the MSMM exhibition. I heard that they are now exhibiting Lego and Meccano. What a Face Question

    I saw the feature on TVM yesterday & I felt my blood pressure soaring up AGAIN for the 9th consecutive year, when I saw the COPIED EVERYTHING from the setup, to the colour of the table cloth, to the almost identical sound of MSMM!!!!!!!

    Meccano & Lego or not, visible gaps in construction or not, the DECIET/DAMAGE inflicted onto the unaware public is a REAL SHAME & A PITY in its own right!!!!!!!

    Paul, knowing you SO WELL NOW, I mean you could have been a bit more ORIGINAL way back then Suspect lol!

    Forgiveness is a VERY HARD OBJECTIVE & I ASK it of others while giving it back every minute, ON ALL FRONTS of Life, since I am a WEAK MORTAL, so Paul hope you FORGIVE ME as I FORGIVE YOU for the GLORY of SSM as God Wills It, as there is nothing Personal, just a FAMILY ISSUE & who does not KILL for LA FAMIGLIA I love you cheers

    Thanks Dottore, Shocked

    Why did I waste 8 years of my good life ? This is a question which I will have to bear for the rest of my life. Eight years of hard work, to end up displaying lego and meccano. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

    Ray I fully agree with you - I apologise for being so STUPID. I should have seen this coming eight years ago.pale pale pale

    I had no time to be original, as the beginning was forked directly from my humble pockets, while others enjoyed the fruits of my hard labour - gratis.

    Brothers - Please accept my apologies. Rolling Eyes

    Now that I am part of SSM, can proudly say that I will never leave this club. GOD WILLS IT. Hope that one day I will be able to make you guys proud of me.

    For once was watching NetNews yesterday and watched a feature of a promising expo, the guy featured said that they do Miniature art, an art of modelling [heard this somwhere else but forgot ], they only feature new models done this year [qiesha xi botta din! biss li rajt kienu fost ohrajn AFM patrol boats li dejjem rajt sena wara sena LOL] then I saw LEGO displays ... what they forgot to mention if they ever get international reconition ... insomma, then I was so overjoyed as near me I had my 2 kids playing with LEGO aswell and said thank God my kids are already artists ...

    Don't worry Ivan, they will see new models What a Face . My plan for next year is to have completely new models displayed. Already have a head start since I had 7 which only needed minor finishing touches which take time to have been ready for this year's expo. Plus skyhigh should have finished at least one 109!! lol!

    Paul, welcome to the brotherhood.

    Whether others copy us is irrelevant, it is up to us to find innovative ways to improve our expo, being creative and maintaining the edge.

    My opinion......... if one wants to pursue an idea, as in for example, to form a scale model club, there is no harm. One might put all his/her energy to develop and construct a club to unite a group of friends who share a common interest and to pass the time.

    Whatever the skill level of the club, that is not important, what is important is the company of friends and how comfortable one feels.

    SSM has the best scale model builders on the Island, but as for me, I'd say one does not need to see the light to join SSM. I visited and was member in AME, MSMM and always felt good with the friends around me no matter what skill level they held. They were all trying to do there best... nothing more.

    Maybe SSM has to see the light in other aspects, who knows.........

    It is true that SSM is purely a true scale model club boasting international level skills but just because the other clubs consider exhibiting other hobbies together with plastic kit hobby does not mean we have to shun them.

    Of course, since scale models are dear to me, I would never consider exhibiting them next to a dolls house or flower collection..... but that is why there is SSM.,.... for the pure

    Noel has realy hit the nail on the head, SSM is for the PURE, I think that those who are un-pure have the right to join a society and that's why God gave them AME and MSMM.

    St. Paul was baptised by a beam of light decending from heaven. sunny

    The same beam of light descended upon me, a year ago, when I decided to join SSM. drunken drunken drunken

    I cannot even try to imagine myself surrounded by Lego and Meccano. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

    I was of the opinion that AME were amateurs, but only to be proved wrong; as now MSMM have made a huge "U" turn, with which, ended up as the laughing stock of the Island. I just cannot imagine the visitors faces, who have paid the entrance fee, to see a display of scale models - only to end up seeing a whole display of Lego and Meccano. Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad

    I wonder if Ray (gidimajs) is building Lego Mororbikes now. Question


    I fully agree with Noel and Joseph, SSM is for the pure, and feel proud to be a member of such a club. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

    SSM FOR EVER - GOD WILLS IT

    It goes beyond skills Noel...

    Post  Dottore on Wed Mar 21, 2012 9:06 am

    It is even GOOD to have low level/skilled clubs such as AME and MSMM, as they can attract potential new comers to the modelling world. These in turn can then see where they want to go in this great hobby...either build for a few hours of pleasure, or learn to make model buuilding an art. As Aldo ably put it...SSM is the UNIVERSITY of modelling while other clubs on the island are the primary level...both are necessary! Tancred and Paul both joined from MSMM. I remember Tancred once telling me he realised after coming to our expo that our club was the only way he could hone his skills and iomprove...and I fully agree!

    But what bothers me much is their attitude! I remember a few years back when we held a competition in our expo...they had instructed their members NOT to participate in any way...CHILD PLAY at its best!
