International Guests Welcome

When I put the flag counter up I imagined that visits to this blog would probably be from a dozen countries at most. I am surprised, delighted and humbled to see visits from 51 countries in seven days. Hopefully, not all of them arrived here by accident!

Well, all are very welcome here and it is a special delight to see the countries of the East so well represented too. It's wonderful that an arcane interest can extend, be shared and enjoyed beyond national boundaries without politicians interfering. That is the liberating power of the blog and the internet. Long may it continue.

BTW if you go to and click on a country you will see a page of useful information about it, including its geography, people, government, economy, communications, transport and military.

Hi Nick,
Dare I say that the word is out about the quality of the information shared here? I've said it before, and I'll say it again...your work is greatly appreciated Nick.

Thanks Dan, I appreciate your kind comment very much but the blog exists only through the kindness and generosity of all the contributors and supporters, including yourself.

I have petitioned all of the best modelling sites to make a model specific index to collect all research and methods for kit corrections. This would do two things, elinate the reinvention of the wheel every time someone starts a model and would preserve valuable information when the owner of same gets tired of reposting every time the same question gets asked.
I also suggested that each model/variant get a moderator to do the work.

Unfortunately, it is either too hard to do or no one sees the value.
