I grew up on a farm and I can recognize piles on the ground and know not step in them, maybe you can recognize which animal this one belongs to. But it is obviously you can't recognize your own.
: ...by Dick was fidelity of scale. There's a
: great deal of difference between what I
: wrote and what you assumed. As we both
: know, I made no specific mention of the kits
: he brought up but, rather, addressed the
: fact that the topic of scale had to be
: brought up at all.
: Therefore, my comments addressed such kits
: as do not reasonably hold to true scale.
: Obviously, since Dick mentioned--among other
: points--the true scale of these kits, it
: would reasonably follow--given your repeated
: admission that you are aware of out-of-scale
: kits such as Aoshima's Wasp or Tamiya's
: Enterprise/Hornet --that I must be referring
: such kits. Further, had I explicitly
: complained about the Academy and Trumpeter
: kits which were--in Dick's
: estimation--plainly well within a reasonable
: tolerance band, then you would have
: something to complain about. Very pointedly
: I did not complain about them, and for good
: reason..what complaint was there to be made
: Didn't you give any thought to that approach
: ? Protip: the next time you're confused
: about what is written I'd suggest that you
: call for such clarification as you may
: desire--that's what I do--rather than climb
: onto some high-horse and ride into town with
: both six-guns a-blazing. I'm glad, however,
: to see that not only you've admitted to
: assuming a condemnation I never forwarded,
: but that you evidently now understand that
: you've conflated your own term ' shameless '
: in your 'disgust' over a condemnation I did
: not write.
: In my book that's called progress.
