Marcelo had computer problems for awhile and has not been posting as much.  As far as I know he does not have the P-38 kit, or at least I can not remember him saying anything about it.  The "cubs" continue to improve kind of makes me sad as they are some of them that are already better than me!

  I know what you mean faif2d  and I have done it myself.  Sometimes when you feel so strongly about something, its hard to be brief about expressing it.  Sometimes a simple "thanks dude" is just not enough.   
  Its amazing how sometimes you do something that you see as just a matter of course, and someone else sees it as a far greater deed than you intended.  It catches you by surprise sometimes.
Sometimes, in the garage, to me its just another motor swap.  To them I brought a dream to life.  I never know how to act at times like that, on either side of the situation.  I have been on both sides.       
  Kinda like when I sent Marcelo 150 dollars worth of wood.  I think I might have upset him.  He asked me not to send anything else.  He was worried about me going bankrupt.  I forgot that 150 means more down there than it does up here.  Embarrassed  I might have overwhelmed him.  BTW, faif2d, did he ever get that Guillows p-38 kit he wanted?  I was offline for awhile and lost track. 
  Its all about perspective.  Aint that right, Mikey....? 
  Good or bad, you just never know how your actions affect others.  I think it ok to "gush"  sometimes.   I think sometimes it is necessary in order to express ones self accurately.   IMO.

I think you hit the nugget that I was aiming for.  I felt that he was uncomfortable with the notoriety / adoration that I was heaping on him.  I was, and am, really sincere in that his site was a huge help to me and to many others I am sure. I also think you are right in that he is not doing it for any reason other than love of the hobby and a desire to help others.

   I wonder about embarrassment. Might be too specific a word. Mike is one of those rare guys who understand the Hobby is way more than the sum of its participants. He works hard on the hobby, because it just lights his jets!--not for some personal standing.
   Some years ago, he leaned heavily on me for some structural work on a model he was developing, of a plane I'd done extensive work with and love dearly. We worked over many weeks to come up with a solution to a couple of airframe problems that had never before been done well, and by God he GOT 'em!. After, he thanked me privately, but he neither acknowledged publicly the contributions by me or others, nor ever mentioned his OWN work. Not important. The PLAN, that's important.
   That's how I like it. And I like Mike immensely, and treasure these moments I share here on this planet with him.

I got to meet him at Geneseo 4 or 5 years ago.  It was the first time he had come over to the NATS.  I thanked him for the site and told him that it had been a great help to me.  I think I embarrassed him. Cool

Great site.  What else can I say, but this really is cool.
