After six years of self-funding the site, we've taken the decision to open it up to donations from members to help with the massively increased costs that were accompanied by the recent move of server to a more powerful, more professional one. If you enjoy your visits to Britmodeller, and want to show your appreciation as well as keep us going in some small way, just click on the Paypal donate button you'll find on the homepage, and on the forum main page. Every little helps toward the upkeep of the site, and as a thank you, we've created a new member category called "Gold Member", which gives you some additional abilities and resources that members don't usually get.

Well, we made it through 2016, although it probably helped that we're not celebrities, and here we are now in 2017. What will this year bring? We don't really know as we don't have a crystal ball, but we've got a few things planned to develop the site, although we will keep the cat in the bag a little while longer on that score. 2016 was an interesting year all being said and done, with lots of new models, plenty to help us all build up a stash of kits that will probably outlast us, plus aftermarket and tools that we'd have killed for 20 years ago. Britmodeller went through some changes too, upgrading to the latest version of the software, suffering from a hacking attempt, as well as a few more minor updates later in the year. We're bigger than ever, with no sign of new members drying up, and we just keep on babbling. We broke through the 2 million post barrier, and soon after hit 19,000 members, so as we approach our ten year anniversary, we're still having fun, which is what it's all about There are still ways to make the site better, so we're working on that, and we're happy to accept suggestions from the members that will enhance the site further, as long as they're reasonable, and within the abilities of the Mods and the forum software of course! From a personal POV, I didn't manage to finish off that P-40 before the New Year, but at least I got the Sith Infiltrator off the desk. 2017 shows promise already, and I'm hoping I'll get a few more completed models under my belt this year... it can't hurt to dream, can it? May your stashes be large, your completions numerous, and may all your scalpel cuts be little ones. Happy New Year to all of you from the Moderating Team at Britmodeller, and a big thank you to everyone for making Britmodeller such a great place to be. Finally, a HUGE thank you to those of you that help with the running of the site, doing reviews, Walkarounds, looking after the Buy/Sell area, and all the other things that go unsung, but keep the place going. Without you, it wouldn't be half as much fun
