Re: SCALEFORUM 1997

Thanks for posting this. Are any other years available? Hi Paul, yes there are more, eight films were made from 1996 to 2003, although the last two are 'unedited', but i'm not sure what this means exactly as I haven't watched those two myself yet. I got a bit Scaleforumed out when I first got them ...
