What is a Site Supporter Subscription?
Running a high traffic site like RCSCALEBUILDER.COM cost quite a bit of money each month. While banner advertising covers a small portion of the total cost we rely on our community to fund this site's existence by offering a yearly subscription. Basically here is how it works.
For a yearly subscription fee of $25.00 US (less than most magazines) you will receive the following:
- Unlimited number of post in forums (as opposed to just 5 with the basic (free) account)
- Unlimited ability to upload images to be stored on the RCSB server for your posts (basic(free) accounts cannot upload images)
- Access to the Scale Vendor Resource Guide
- Access to the private Site Supporters forum that includes the last 24 Monthly walk-around downloads (different aircraft subject each month)
- Access to the private Scale Plan Repository (over 70 plans currently available)
- Access to the private 3D Printer File Repository
- Access to the Scale Model Finder
- Vendor Monthly Special Offers only for RCSB Site Supporters
- Participate in drawings and contests only open to RCSB Site Supporters
