Topics I've Started

I got my first gas grill over the weekend

17 May 2015 - 07:34 PM

I got a Brinkmann grill with 4 burners, plus sear and side burners. It's pretty good size, as far as affordable grills go. Initial observation: it's still easy to run out of grill surface. The meal was 3 ribeyes, about 20 jalapeno poppers, four ears of corn, and some veggies on skewers. Those veggies on skewers take up a LOT of space. Here is what I'm going to try for a solution:




This stainless basket slips over the rotisserie rod. It's hinged like the containers at a bank drive-thru (the vacuum tube thing). I also plan to use it to roast Poblano peppers out of my garden. The manufacturer's website also shows it roasting chicken wings. I might have to try that, too. Not my photo. I just ordered it tonight.


The jalapeno poppers were a type I have not tried before. They're called Atomic Buffalo Turds. It's a jalapeno split lengthwise, stuffed with cheese, then you get a little smokie and split it lengthwise, lay it on top, and wrap it all in a slice of bacon. WOW those were good.


I can't wait to do some more grillin'.

Does anyone make a 1/24~1/25 Bertone Ferrari 250 GT?

I know Provence Moulage did, but that is 1/43. Was it ever done in 1/24 or 1/25?


Idea for MCM photo contest: Revell 1929 Ford roadster

I think it would be a cool idea. Lots of options for box stock, maybe a second category for modified/kitbashed. Why, shoot, I might even get one finished.

Does anyone make custom sport bike parts?

Things like extended swing arms, nitrous bottles, fat tires, etc.

I got a couple of Hayabusas for their engines. A couple of curbside customs would be cool.


I would love to see a contra-prop Seafire in 1/32 or 1/24

Because man, it would be so cool to graft that Griffon Seafire nose and props on a P-51D/K. Ooh! Even better! A 1/18 contra-prop Seafire! Yeah!
