Mine would work as for Christmas too....  My goal is to finally find the old,rare,replacement parts for my dads old ones so I can get them restored before I cant....everything else is secondary at this point to me.

Nick, you must be reading my mind, although Revell's new releases are making it really really really hard.

Finish something. Learn to use automotive lacquers. (This whole thing with Tamiya Clear being discontinued has really thrown a monkey wrench into my world. I bet I have 60 cans of Tamiya spray paint. :-( )

Doc,

Your resolution is to keep churning out those videos!  :P

I am getting into this hobby because your styrene addiction is contagious!

Not that hard, only the '57 Ford is on the top of my list and right now I'm tryin' to "thin out the herd" as I have been known  to buy kits a LOT faster than I build 'em.

Thanks, Mike, I am glad the videos are getting around.  I am promoting the heck out of the magazine (it's the only one DCL and EYEGORE endorse in the car modeling world!) and the Forum. :wub:  :wub:  :wub:

Nick, I just bought four more of those.  Has all the making of a great kit!

I'd like to finish some of my long-term (i.e. started last century) projects but I still have another in-my-head project in the wings.  I also want to build some of the aircraft, armor and ships that are in my stash.
