We would even encourage the model companies to read our reviews, so that they can make better kits.
This will benefit modellers as well, by getting more good kits into the hobby shops.
Because this is a non-commercial site, we cannot accept reviews from kit manufacturers, retailers, wholesalers, or importers.
From the beginning, this list was intended to be a non-commercial site, in the tradition of the pre-commercialized internet.
There is no advertising, and it is available to modellers for free. Our goal is to improve the hobby of ship modelling, by making it easier to select good kits, and to provide information on how to fix some of the problematical ones.
He was the first to add reviews of Japanese 1/700 kits. He has high standards, and from the pictures I've seen on the net, he produces excellent work. (DRW) WLM == Bill Michaels ([email protected]) Bill is our resident expert on US Coast Guard subjects, and also very well versed on the subject of sailing ships.
(DRW) GM == Graeme Martin ([email protected]) Graeme is a newcomer to the list as of late 2005, but he's no newcomer to the world of ship modeling. Make sure you check out Bill's USCG Model Kit list.
Welcome to the Ship Modeler's Review List: an ambitious (perhaps futile and/or insane) attempt by various members of the model ship community to catalog and review every plastic and resin model ship kit of all time.
This list was created by Rajendra Datta ([email protected]).
Rajen has become busy with business and family in recent years (as of 2004) so he hasn't been doing much ship modelling lately. (DRW)RD == Rod Dauteuil ([email protected]) Rod is another "good guy" who has helped me in numerous ways.
