A web site devoted to scale models, especially plastic, resin or white metal ones, based on Internet, with the aim of creating a community. No other kind of modelling is allowed such paper models...etc, which have specific websites. Here you may find everything offered in forums, blogs…etc, in a single-web site, administrated by yourself, interacting with other modelers all over the world. Our Modelersite.net is based on the concept of Showrooms.
-I understand what this web site aims at, but what about having a showroom?
The showroom is your Internet showcase. Inside it you’ll be able to upload to Modelersite.net, galleries (up to 10 pictures each subject) of your finished models, projects which are up and running, collection of boxes…etc. These galleries will be organized in such a way to be seen by other modelers. Forums are focused to messages while showrooms at Modelersite.net, to modelers and their models.
-Are pictures the only thing I can upload to my showroom?
Each gallery in your showroom may have pictures and all the text you like. Besides you can exchange comments with other modelers that are seeing your modelers. One new gallery added to your showroom, will appear on Modelersite.net’ s front page.
All this can be administrated by you, needing as only requirement to register a new account an identify yourself, then you’ll have on screen administration options
-When looking at Modelersite.net’ s front page, I find that there are galleries about cars, motorcycles…etc but, I’m only interested in airplanes?
Once you get your account registered, you’ll be asked about your preferences, if you choose airplanes, then at the moment of being identified, your preferences will be kept, and on your next visit, you’ll see only airplanes, nevertheless, the menu options will let you enter to other sections of Modelersite.net.

Try to give as much information as you can when creating your profile, true information, in this way you’ll help to keep a healthy community free of spam, getting a better contact with other modelers.
-Once my showroom was created, might I upload any kind of pictures?
We recommend you to use your showroom for modeling purposes, we don’t think it advisable to upload family photos and other sort of material, which is inappropriate for this web site’s aim. The same counts for the texts, they should keep a respectful language, avoiding coarse or crude words. Think that your messages in the galleries will be read by modelers all over the world, and you’ll be showing yourself up.
