So the old Airfix Forum had nothing to with Hornby Hobbies?

 

The Airfix Tribute Forum you created, as fan and wouldn't have had anything to do with Airfix's owner at the time?

 

What does "IIRC" stand for?

IIRC = if I remember correctly

The ATF was created by Dave Coventry, who asked me to take ownership of it. We had contact with Airfix who gave us permission to use their artwork, and we had a good relationship with them. I built the test shots of HMS Illustrious (without instructions or decals) and Dave scratchbuild HMS Queen Elizabeth for Airfix to present to the Navy.

Thank you for telling me that. I did not know this and I sat there for a number of minutes trying to work out what I could mean and I couldn't get it, so I asked you.

I was assumed that The Airfix Tribute Forum was something you created as you are the owner. Clearly not. Took over the role from somebody else.

 

Thank you for giving me this information Ratch. I would never have ever known it otherwise. Smile

Hi Gordon,

I'm sorry, I totally missed your post with the questions but I see the others have answered you.  Yes, I do it from home and do try to visit the site every day even though I don't actually put up a post every day.  I keep a special weather eye open for ship related posts since ships are my main interest but I also go through the other sections of course.
