On the way, la explendida pagina dedicada a la 1/72 ha cerrado. Una lastima para todos ahora que la 1/72 esta de moda...

...amén de que no debe ser todavía definitivo. Parece ser que su webmaster, Doug Chlatry, todavía no ha emitido un "comunicado oficial" al respecto.

¡Esperemos al siguiente noticiario de la CNN! Bueno, hablando en serio, en el DG "Braille Scale" de Missing Links se están proponiendo diversas soluciones y ofertas por sí Doug no puede seguir adelante con su trabajo.

¡Sigan atentos a este canal!

¡Salud!

¡Saludos!

Pues efectivamente, las malas noticias son definitivas.

Esta es la declaración del webmaster:

"I am sorry to inform the modeling community that "On The Way!" is gone. Due
to financial problems at home, I can no longer afford to operate this
website, and indeed, my entire involvement in the hobby will be scaled back
considerably.

For those who were not aware, I had to purchase 99% of the models that I
reviewed on this site. Although there were a small number of companies that
supported me by sending in free review samples, there were also a great many
companies who promised sample kits, and never sent them, as well as many
very large companies who would never even bother to respond to my email
inquiries (I won't mention any names, but the two largest sound very much
like Tasegawa and Tevell).

I would very much like to encourage my former viewers to pay special
attention to the companies who were kind enough to support my site. They
obviously were foresighted enough to recognize the benefits of the free
advertising I provided to them:

ACE Model (http://www.acemodel.com.ua)
ADV Mini (no website)
AFV Decals (http://www.angelfire.com/retro/afv_decals/)
BaxMod Models (http://www.baxmod.co.za/index.html)
ExtraTech (http://www.extratech.cz/)
Fine Scale Factory (http://www.finescalefactory.de)
HaT Industrie (http://www.hat.com/)
PST (http://pstminsk.8m.com/)

Also, please support the following hobby retailers who also provided me with
review items at their own expense:

JADAR-Model (http://jadarhobby.waw.pl/e_portal/c_default.php)
Tracks & Troops (http://www.tracks-n-troops.com/)

Most importantly, I want to profusely thank all of the viewers who sent
contributions of various types to me over the years: kit reviews, Gallery
photos, information on model companies and kit lists, review items, modeling
tips, and many other things. Obviously I can't thank everyone by name, but I
want you all to know how much I appreciated your input.

There are still a large number of emails sitting in my inbox that I did not
have the time to respond to. For those of you who sent in something to me,
and I did not get around to posting your contribution, or responding to your
inquiries, I give you my sincere apology.

I have the entire website saved on my hard drive, and backed up on CD, so
perhaps some day in the future, when I am in a better position to take on
this responsibility, I can bring "On The Way!" ver. 2.0 on-line. Until that
day comes, I wish you all Happy Modeling.

Doug Chaltry"


En fin, "¡¡Lástima que termino el festival de hoy!!..."

A ver sí alguien se anima y pese a todo se acaba manteniendo la web...


¡Saludos!

Roberto

que esto de mantener una web es cara, y si como dice este buen señor no le han facilitado lo prometido y además se ha gastado una fortuna en el 995 de las maquetas que ha revisado, pues apaga y vamonos,
pero no deja de ser una gran perdida, material y maqueteramente,
quizás alguien le tome la idea y esos Cd's y la reviva, pero no voy a ser yo ni muchos otros que estamos fritos de pelas y a los que la hipoteca nos tiene asfixiados,
un saludo,
