Nice hot rod, you got there, Jason. I've always like Vega wagons & panels. I like the early front end but the later one, is more aerodynamic You are going to have a blast with it. I'm very envious.


In Topic: For any of you that still believe 3-D printing is a far-off dream...

It doesn't matter how fine of a resolution printer you have sitting on your desk, if you can't build the 3D model that is needed to make a print there is no reason to have the printer. Designing and building the 3D model is the real show stopper here, everyone seems to forget that.

I've been saying the same thing, since the 3D printers for modelers topics started. CAD programs are not easy to master & I doubt they will get much easier. Files will be available but at what price? What if you want something obscure?

Richard Carroll was added to the International Model Car Builder's Museum under their new "Historic Famers" category meant to "recognize vintage builders for their great contributions to the advancement of our hobby".   You can read about this in Model Cars #187, pages 10-11.  Denny Johnson, Jim and Ray Yonts, Robert A. Smith, ,Richard Mike Johnson, Bob Nordberg, and Jerry Svikek were similarly honored.  TB 

Thank you for letting me/ us know this, since the museum website isn't very up to date. There is no link to the new category or any HOF honorees, listed past 2010.

Tom, please make sure that Mr. Cura knows how much a lot of us appreciate how much he has done putting together that web site. Obviously I'm putting it good (??) use.

Scott

Yes, please do. I have enjoyed looking back at the old magazines.
