In Topic: 2014 Revell 3rd Quarter Kit Announcements

FINALLY!! A new tool '67 Camaro! I'd like to see an RS version as well. Now if Revell could somehow see fit to give us a NEW TOOL '69 Firebird Trans Am! That one's been long overdue!

A 1977-78 Datsun 200 SX. Genuine hardtop styling, rear wheel drive, easy to work on, what's not to like? ;)

Wow! I haven't seen one of those for a loooong time! I was getting out of high school back when those were new, and I had a teacher that had one. She loved it!

 

I do miss the small, compact rear wheel drive car..........I rue the day when everything went front drive. More expensive to work on, and a lot more troublesome to fix. :(


In Topic: Food Dehydrators & Paint Dryers

The reason I noticed it because it was used over Krylon White, which is a REALLY bright white. I had put the body in the dehydrator immediately after I airbrushed the Future, and after letting it sit in there for maybe an hour, I noticed that the white had a slight yellowish tinge to it.

 

I stripped it to start over, and sure enough the nice bright white returned. It came to mind that maybe I should let things sit for a spell before putting it in, and the next time it came out fine.


In Topic: Scale Calculator? How about this one.

18 April 2014 - 03:31 AM

I'm sorry if this seems "mean", but understanding "scale" only requires an understanding of fractions and division. This is fifth-grade math. How can anyone functioning in society NOT have these basic elementary-school skills?

 

Sadly Bill, with our education system in this country today, it's no wonder that people don't understand basic things such as math, reading and writing. I could go on and on, but look how folks today communicate in the written word. I read a story the other day in the local news that had many spelling errors------this apparently written by a "professional" that's supposed to know the basics of the English language, and have SOME understanding of good sentence structure.

 

I blame it on the general "dumbing down" of society that's been in full swing since the '80's. :(
