About the site

Who are Model db and what is the site for?

The site was an idea originally voiced on the RCM&E forum ( where users wanted a model database. As a software developer I built this for the use of modellers everywhere.

Why do I need to set up an account

The reason for this is to enable you to upload your model & battery data, and have it linked to you. All records will remain private (ie no other users will be able to see your stuff, unless you make the model public).

You will notice that we collect only the smallest amount of personal information, an appologies for yet another password to remember.

Who can see my models

Only you can see your battery data, and only models you have ticked as public will be able to be seen by others, however any set up data will be returned in searches to be publicly viewed, but any data will be anonyous, and no photos will be shown.

Will I ever be asked to pay to use the site

No. This website is for the benefit of modellers and it gives me another portfolio site


Model db take your privacy very seriously. Our guarantee is that any information given to us on this website will not be used for any purpose other than to provide the level of service you would demand.

If you leave comments and a response is required you will only be contacted about your comments.

You will only receive promotional material by way of a newsletter if you have signed up for the service (when we decide to do one).

Model db will not use your details for any other purpose or pass your details on to any 3rd party. Promise.

The only exceptions to the above are:

  • Any setups are viewable by the public (but your personal details will not be shown).
  • If you post your details on the site the details must be considered to be in the public domain.
  • If we get a request from the Courts or the Police in respect to a current investigation of a criminal nature.

All I ask in return is that you join in with the spirit of the site.
