It is up to you to read and accept this or not. It is written with one thing in mind and for those that serve each other as gods. They lift up their works and praise each other. Out of ignorance, they boast of their good works. They praise each others success. They cry out "I want more !"

Glory only belongs to God and him alone. Everything we do with our hands should bring glory to God and not to man. Glory and praise does not belong to things made with your own hands that man will admire. As surely as I live, God will bring down the oppressors that lie and are false witnesses. For the same knife that they stab in the back, they will fall upon it with no one to save them. The same lips that are telling lies, lies will be told on them. The trap that they set, they will fall into it. They mock and they will be mocked. Their glory will be put to shame. For it is the Lord God that will do this, not I.

Therefore as it is written: In the Book of ISAIAH Chapter 54 Verse 17: "No weapon forged against me shall prevail, and I will refute every tongue that accuses me." In other words, "every word that comes against me SHALL be condemned !"

But the Lord is with me like a mighty warrior;
So my persecutors will stumble and not prevail.
They will fail and be thoroughly disgraced;
Their dishonor will never be forgotten.
O Lord Almighty, you who examine the righteous
and probe the heart and mind,
let me see your vengeance upon them,
for to you I have committed my cause.

This is the word of the Lord.

The Lord saves those who have a broken spirit. The Lord will save those who are hurt and dismayed. He is close to the Broken hearten. I have seen this with my own eyes. His arm is not too short to save, his army is being gathered now to slay those that oppress and discourage. They will be caught in their own net like helpless fish caught in a net. Their lives will be shortened with agony and not know why. If you trust in the Lord, he will deliver.

It is written:
" A bruised reed He will not break, nor a smoldering wick He will snuff out"

A hole that is dug they will fall into it. The stone they chisel out will roll back upon their heads. The grief that is caused is only for a short time. One day you will look for them and they will not be found. Like a flower that flourishes in the sunshine, that sunshine will also wither the flower. The season will change, the season will come, one will rise and one will fall all at the Lords hands. For He knows the way of the righteous. It is not I that is righteous, but it is HE that is righteous.

It is up to you to accept these words or not. I am here to uplift those that have been discouraged by the evil and the oppressors. Just as God whistles for the flies and calls out the bird of prey to do His bidding, so He will call out the destroyer to work havoc on those that do NOT do right and are NOT just in His eyes.

Yes, God is merciful, and yes, God is love, but he also can not tolerate evil and people that do evil things to other people.

King Solomon was the wisest and most wealthiest man on earth as the only thing he asked of God was for Wisdom to lead the people. The biblical King Solomon died in Jerusalem after 40 years as ruler of Israel. In one of his writings, this is what he said:

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:

a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.


The time has come for peace for SOS.

As Jesus died to save the world from there sins, and granted salvation, and as the SON OF GOD was resurrected, he stood for LOVE, MERCY ,WISDOM.

so who's oppressed here? Not me or mine.

the point is no one is oppressed here,

there are no over lords telling anyone what they can build or not build or what kits they can buy or not buy
this place has respect for everyone and what they choose to do.


it is as simple as a friendly community of model ship builders kit, scratch builders, designers, manufactures everyone is welcome.

We all have an ego. It is the ego-self which feels invalid (oppressed). Because our mind senses everything else except itself, it fabricated a story of self (ego) to make sense of itself (I, me, mine). The mind knows that this story is invalid. That is why the ego always seeks validity _ to build up its self esteem (ego-energy). "Look at me", "I know better", etc.

The trouble is that many rely on validation to feel okay, and will exploit self and others to get validation (people pleasing). Its mode is: I'll please you in the hope of getting praise in return. Co-dependency relies on such behaviours.

However, model building is a solo act. It is not, by its nature, a team effort. Inspiration (in spirit) to carry on to completion often requires added encouragement from fellow members who know what it means to endure in creative solitude. A part of us may seek validation, but mostly we seek to be encouraged to carry on in the creative act.

God, the original Creator, stepped back after a week and said "It was good"
Genesis 1:31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning--the sixth day.

Since then, humans who appreciate nature, have been in glorifying God in the same way, "It is good".
We were made in His image. We are creators by nature. We too, require now and again "It is good".

This is so true Peter, in the past I often gave up on builds because I got to a difficult part, now thanks to this great forum I am encouraged to struggle on and complete things,

Hey Coxn'Baltosale, why not introduce yourself, instead of a frivolous comment for a first post ?
Dear Brian - it was not frivolous. I was referring to my own glorious relationship with the One above. I thought we wopuld all realize that but I was a little puzzled. Please accept my most sincere apologies.

I must say that I initiated this post when there arose conflicts between SOS and some other personalities of some other forums back actually about a year ago. The persons of interest (in my opinion) was oppressing modelers from "enjoying" the hobby by restricting what they could build by enforcing their ethics of excluding some manufactures due to allegedly copyright infringements. Many were banned and not only that, if any member here was found to be building such kits, they would be banned from (that) site too. So, I assume this is really a maneuver to try to have complete control of model kits and even forums ?

This bad behavior had become such a disturbing issue personally that I had to resort to protecting myself "legally" from ongoing harassment from other personalities from another other forum. People that were banned were simply expressing their feelings about a person. The person demanded that I remove any derogatory and alledgely flaming comments stemming from the ones that were banned.

So, you person(s) from other forum want to kick people out of the hobby and you want them to be SILENCED TOO !!!! Really ?? Oh well, to appease some folks, I requested that all of SOS to remain (at ease). But, the cannons are still loaded !!!
Since, I personally found comfort and hope that I could provide a sense of comfort for others on SOS that had been seriously harassed by writing
"For the Oppressed !" ---- at that time, yes, a lot of us were oppressed but it was not going to last long.

It is a shame that other personalities of another forum remains to be of a type of controlling environment. Yes, I will enjoy my freedom of the press and freedom of speech as in this manner I am in no way calling names of people or trying to cause a disturbance, but rest assured that those that want to cause a disturbance will meet their own match one day. Aren't you glad you are part of the SOS (save our souls).

Have peace, and build what you want. You, I and (we) do not have control over the modeling industry and what industry makes of what ship kits, etc. I realize that there are possiblities of certain countries (maybe) practicing copying products, but I do not have control over that.

No one has been able to answer my question. So, if china is doing such a "bad' thing by copying USA and other kits, then why are there so many HMS Victories ?
I think there are like 4 kits now ? Hummm So, who copied who ? I know of two USS Constitutions. Who copy who ? Who was first to design and manufacture these two kits. So, China goes off and makes a kit just like so and so, and according to a select FEW, everything goes to hell in a hand basket.

I do know personally that china has a reputation of copy cat and intellectual property, but I cannot do anything about it and boycotting one or two china kits is NOT going to change the Stock Market anytime soon !!!!!

first I would like to say SOS MSB NBM and facebook are seeing new members everyday from all parts of the world. So everyday it grows bigger and stronger. There are those who will cry and scream and throw a tantrum and try to stop it, but they cant because if your on the right path and doing the right thing people will come.

take the confederacy model tracing it back the plans are in a museum collection. those plans were used by Robert Bruckshaw to build a model, next Harold Hahn used Roberts model and drawings and built a model of the confederacy, then someone uses the work of Hahn and produces a model which ends up at model Expo, then ZHL takes the information and creates a model. No one owns a copyright on the USS Confederacy so each model is a "version" of that ship and not a copyright. What it is about is "fake news" is created about copyrights to try and control competition.


Many were banned and not only that, if any member here was found to be building such kits, they would be banned from (that) site too. So, I assume this is really a maneuver to try to have complete control of model kits and even forums ?

When you are a member of a group and you establish friends and connections. you spend many, many hours writing and taking pictures and creating a build log you feel you are giving back and sharing your work with a community. Then one day you find you have been banned, kicked to the curb like day old trash then harassed and bullied even on other forums. Then to add insult to injury every word ever photo every trace of what you did is wiped out. Your emotions run hot you see bad people doing bad things in a hobby you enjoy, you want to speak out you want to right what is wrong.


Oh well, to appease some folks, I requested that all of SOS to remain (at ease). But, the cannons are still loaded !!!

I am not a man of strong faith but I do admire those that are perhaps some day I can understand. But I do see those who try to impose their will on others have met their match. SOS is not a group you can push around.


Aren't you glad you are part of the SOS

I can say without a doubt yes I am
