Thumbs up Commander's musings and thanks...

With SFFM Vol 9 issue released today, I was thinking how well the Gerry Anderson modelling/collecting community has pulled together through this very forum. It's kinda 'united' everyone - once a disparate 'minor' interest group spread to the four winds and without a voice. Well, not one that figured so highly in search engines, that's for sure.

It's also certainly rekindled the market for replicas, kits and accessories. I think this is just the beginning.

Most of all, it's all down to you guys out there - I'm just a 'facilitator' who presses the buttons.

So, thanks once again for all your help in supporting this board.

No than YOU Mark for hosting it.

It has allowed all of us sad, lonely Eagleholics to congregate in one place, compare notes and make better Eagles all round.

I've certainly gained a lot personally from being here, learning new tips and techniques regularly, and meeting up with a some of you on the odd occasion.

It spurs me on to get on with modelling my favourite craft and other related subjects. And the sheer number of people here with all their own various projects including some incredible scratchbuilds is an inspiration to all.

You should be proud of what you've created here Mark...it's a really great place to be.

I've said it before, but it bears repeating: Et.com remains the only site I visit almost daily and of which I'm an active member: it simply can't be beat for Gerry Anderson-related enthusiasm, creativity, inspiration, research and really friendly tone. I also took advantage of Mark and Mike's SF&F Modelling Vol. 9 special offer and really look forward to the published efforts of our fellow forum members

EagleTransporter.com is the only web page I have open all day (at Work ) and at home .
Great people here and as w8cmp already said, the "sheer number of people here with all their own various projects including some incredible scratchbuilds is an inspiration".
Well, not only an inspiration, it's also my favorite way burning my money

Also I'm looking forward to all the future modells to come

Besides being an Eagleholic I am also a Eagletransporter-dot-com-holic!

Thank you for starting this avalanche, Mark.

I also agree with the felings expressed here.

I found out about ET from the RPF, and its a true breath of fresh air. I love the fact that members here are willing to advise and even help!!! This is a really important part of what makes ET a community, instead of just a BBS.

Love ya all...

The main thing about this forum is that its a nice place to visit, very friendly atmosphere and members who are willing to share information, tips, advice and such like, also have a chat and a good old laugh. There is little in the way of falling out with members, which is brilliant, as not many forum's can boast that.

And on a more personal note, I have made some good friends as part of being in this community.

So a big thank you to Mark for creating the place.

Exactly right, Retroboy; here we can remain child-like without becoming childish.

Your early website detailing your build-up of the RU Eagle was the inspiration for all of this and I've been with you all the way since -- and hopefully for a long time to come. It's been a hell of a ride.

It's a great site, a great read and fantastic, friendly people.

And for it to break out of the virtual world and into the real is just the icing on the cake.

Thanks for being here, Mark.

I can only echo what Chris and others have said. It's all down to you, Mark. So thanks.

I picked up my copy of SF&F today and immediately read the interview with yourself and learned a lot about how and why you started the forum, which was most interesting!

I'm very new here, but it only took me a minute or two to appreciate what an awesome place this is. So, thanks to you Mark, and to everyone here who (whether you realise it or not) are helping me rekindle my long-forgotton Eaglistic dreams. Hopefully I'll have plenty of stuff to pump back into the forum as time goes on.
