09 September 2013 - 08:59 PM

What is the most cost effective product to use to simulate flocking ?  Being on Social Security Disability Income I need to save a penny here or there anywhere I can ha ha.  Is there another product like maybe glitter or something else along those lines that may be cheaper then persay the actual "Flocking"?  Thanks in advance for any info.

Michaels around my area here in Pennsylvania only carry the small 1/4 oz bottles of Testors in a decent variety of colors.  They carry the Testors Acrylic and Enamel eight or nine bottle sets and ocasionally a set of Military colors but thats it paint wise.  Maybe now and then a small selection of Testors Spray Lacquers.  That's it paint wise though.  Small selection of kits, Monogram, AMT and Revell, both cars and planes.  AC Moore is hit and miss normally with the miss.  I was OK with the selection Hobby Lobby had last visit.  At least they carry some of the Vallejo paints.  My area for Mom and Pop hobby stores is HORRIBLE.  The one I have which is a 45 minute drive or so is aweful price wise.  I couldn't even tell you where the closest acceptable mom and pop hobby store is to me.  That's why I just stick to either www.scalehobbyist.com or www.redfroghobbies.com they seem to be the two cheapest online hobby stores I've found.

Who's showing American Lemans series this year?  I think I've been able to catch less than one hour of the big Le Mans race in the past 5 years because the scheduling and promo is such ######.  Le Mans, Rolex, Sebring, WRC are fun to watch.  Nascar has become a little more interesting since the Busch brothers have been involved, but I'm so sick of the over-promotion of Danica Patrick is sickening.  But I don't find any racing on Fox anymore.


Will never ever watch another Lemans Series race again in my life.  Any series that continues to run a race after the said race has a accident that involves a death to a competitor should immediately postpone or even cancel the remaining portion of the race.  With the fatality in this years 24 hours of Lemans, they continued to finish the race.  When the competitor was fatally injured in my opinion the remainder of the race should have been Cancelled.  So the Lemans Series lost a fan over that with me.  Just my honest opinion but how I feel.
