What do model builders overlook that could improve their models?

26 July 2014 - 10:45 AM

I know that many of us are quick to suggest that wheels should have valve stems.

 

I've noticed that in many builds I've seen that the inside edges of window frames, such as vent windows, have rough edges that could benefit from a little sanding, and possibly some indication of felt window channels. I also think that some interior parts and molded-on firewall hoses etc. would look better with a little scoring around the separate parts before painting to "lift" them off of the surface a bit.

 

Other thoughts?

NASCAR vs other race series

21 June 2014 - 09:28 AM

I love all racing, especially NASCAR, but I always wonder why there aren't ways for them to adapt to winding road courses other than oval tracks, such as today's Elkhart 200, and carry on in the rain. All other race series seem to be able to deal with those issues, such as Le Mans, F1, Indycar. NASCAR would be far more interesting under the circumstances the other race series face. I understand the dangers created by the incredible speeds and specialized car set-ups, but it seems that only NASCAR races get shut down this way. There must be a way for NASCAR teams and drivers to adapt to different racing circumstances.

What model subjects do you follow and/or ignore on this forum?

The subject says it all. Please answer both sides. What categories do you follow on this forum? What types of cars interest you or are not of interest to you? I don't recall this question or a poll on this subject before.

 

Muscle cars? Vintage classics? Old or new stocki? Drag? Funny cars? NASCAR? etc.
