Did you happen to upload some containership models in 1:1250 to Ecardmodels? A few weeks ago I was about to purchase those models, but I noticed some simularities (coverimage and the modelnames) with models that were offered for free here in the downloadsection. So I did not buy them.......and I just noticed Ecardmodels stopped selling them

sorry about that...but this is still important information to ecardmodels designers and users.
I would like to make a final remark here, as it wasn't my intention to damage anubhavmitra's reputation on this forum. It is certainly not up to me to accuse anybody, or to make judgements. So I'd like to apologize to anubhavmitra for this.
And I think the feedback by airdave could be used as a manual on how to avoid this type of situation in the future

Those container ships where designed by our German friend Joachim Frerichs and recolored and built by me. The kits are selling with my photos on covers.

I received the email from Joachim a little while ago.

That is weird.

Is the "sort by latest" box selected?

There are about a dozen or so threads from the past couple of years to today on the reasons why Ecards is/was a shell of their former self.

Physical server crashes and errors and corrupted databases has necessitated a new store front, and the re-adding of 1000's of models

And adding onto what Rick posted already, we are working as fast as possible to get them re-listed for those designers/repainters who have signed up and created a vendor account. Some models will not make it into the store due to that.

Thank you Robert, Rick and others who are doing the heavy lifting. Ecards is coming along extremely well.
