    Hello fans,

    another paper model website is closing:

    https://cleverpapermodel.com/

    If you need anything from the site just feel free to grab it NOW.

    As soon as the blog has vanished this thread becomes "unstickied".

    Have fun and enjoy! :)

    These should be downloaded into our database. His site says in two languages that he expects this. Why not? I am having computer problems right know, if you guys have the time, and want to give it a go, you have my support, and appreciation. ;)

    I think that is a very good idea. He is a member here. So, he can easily be credited as the owner of the models.

    And if he wishes any changes made he may do it directly himself or contact one of us. I have his entire collection and will see what I can do (it's the end of the month and my speed is down). :)

    Good to here,

    good luck with the rest. I had that problem too. Since i did not touch that particular drive after the incident i was lucky and i could retrieve almost everything. It just takes a lot of time so be very patient.

    and merry Christmas by the way.


    greetings from Greece

    YES!! Not touching the drive is imperative. It's all their. I won't be able to recover some programs as getting all the .bin and cab. and .cfg files is beyond my pay grade, but I can get everything else. The photos, models, and many of the text and .doc files, which have important information. I know have a burner with "M" drive technology, good for 100's of years, not cheap, but all things considered, not expensive either. The current ones will hold 128 Gig's of information per disc, but the 64 Gig ones are cheaper per disc than one big one. I'll burn my precious information to these discs. :)

    I have 2x 4tb hard drives in my system. If any space is needed for backups of models that will no longer be available, I would gladly set aside a portion if this would help the admins.

    One of these days, people will find that many, and I mean many, of these models will not be readily available, as the borders start going on on the Internet too. :(

    Thanks for letting us know. FYI Just downloaded most everything I could. I might already have these in the collection already, but I'll check later to make sure. Didn't get the marvel figures though. Not my interest.
