Default Homebuild forum?

What do you guys think?
Should RCU fearure a forum dedicated to homebuilds?

Would it be a good idea to have a forum where everyone can post pictures of their builds and projects.
If so, should it be an all-in forum including cars, boats, planes, tanks, helicopters and whatever else people build?


The good thing about such a forum would be that it would be a great resource for anyone who's starting out building, as they would have lots of information and advice availabl eon one page.

The bad thing might be that it could become a bit of anexclusive club for lack of a better term.
Another problem would be how to start it off.
Would everyone start new threads or should all existing threads be moved there by the moderators upon requast by the thread starter.


I've been pondering on this for a while and it's still 50/50 in my head whether it's a good idea or not.
I put it to one of the moderators and was given the suggestion to start a poll.
So here goes.

I think it would be a good suggestion to the admins. Homebuilt forum with separate threads for cars, boats, planes.....etc. I think it would be too much to keep organized if it were all together.

Ah, boats built from scratch... scratch built models...

That would be all my boats...
But they all fit into the scale model classification.

I'm a Nay voter. This site has always welcomed build threads and placing them in their appropriate forum has worked well.
Most of my boats have been built myself with only a couple of exceptions as I like to put them together my way using hardware from a variety of manufacturers.
I have yet to do a true scratch build and probably never will. I have done conversions of electric hulls (bare) to nitro power which takes a lot of time and work to do. I admire those who have not only the time but the patience to do such builds. Trying to do a scale ship would push me over the edge and lose what little that I have left of my sanity.
