Hey here is another super cool thing I found using the new Recent Attachments feature!

This is Lupus78's 3d printed Hellcat model. He used the Shapeways service to have the model printed in 3D. Very cool!!

For all the pics check out the thread or the thread gallery!

So there I was scorching through the site when a build thread slapped me right between the eyes - BAM! This is the most intense build thread I have seen for a while and I had to stop and share it with all you guys!

This user is building a 1/7 scale Sopwith and he says, "Replicraft plans are of the real thing right down to the nuts and bolts so however the real plane was built that's how I'm going to build it and what ever worked on the real plane will work on this one." The detail on this build has to be seen to believed. As a transmitter I would be proud to control something like this...

Ok here is a new twist on the work we've been doing with attachment browsing. I just put a little link at the bottom of the left column of stuff on the Classifieds page.

Click the See all the latest ad pics link and you will see all the recent attachments made in the Classifieds section.

Enjoy and watch for more cool changes coming soon.

Hey everyone! Today I found some wire, a metal gear servo and an old sock. I took all these things and with the help of my trusty 15 watt soldering iron I came up with yet another cool way to view photos on RCG! I call it the Lightbox Attachment Browser and it does some pretty trick stuff! When you click on any image this thing pops right up. You will be able to see who uploaded the image in this sweet black box (black is the new black you know). Also inside the box is info that can tell you what post the image came from. You can view all the attachments in the thread, or if the photo breaks a site rule you can report it to a moderator. Everything is linked right there in the box. Pretty cool huh?

For all you old old school RCG users you can still view images the old way by going to "My RCGroups", then go to "edit options" in the attachments section and check "Use old attachment browser to browse attachments within a thread."
But I know everyone is going to love the Lightbox Attachment Browser so don't even read that last part.

Give it a spin by clicking the image below.

In my never ending pursuit of trying to see everything posted on RCGroups I have invented yet another cool feature that all of you can share! I call it the Thread Gallery. When you click on the paperclip icon from any thread list it will take you to the double cool Thread Gallery. The Thread Gallery will display all the images that are in that particular thread. You can disable it and use the old attachment browser through the edit options page in "My RCGroups" but that's not as much fun as using the new Thread Gallery. I have included some photos below to help you figure out how to utilize the super sweet Thread Gallery. Enjoy!

PS - I just wanted to take this chance to say Thread Gallery one more time!

Do you know what's cool? When RCGroups users upload photos. When it gets slow around the RCGroups.com offices, I like to check out all the photos uploaded by our users. Yesterday, it hit me: What if I could look at every photo a user has uploaded to RCG at one time? How much cooler could you get than that? I can tell you, none more cooler! So I got out the soldering iron and created a user thumbnail gallery page. That means with one click you can see every image a user has uploaded to threads, the classified section, a blog, articles and more. If they uploaded a picture you can now check it out in the new user thumbnail gallery!

The image below shows you exactly where the link is to see all the photos

I have to go now and look at everyone's images!
