Topics I've Started

Good bye my Friends

23 November 2012 - 03:39 PM

I've greatly enjoyed my time here ... Astounded by great builds ... Inspired by great builders ... I really learned a lot ... Applied various techniques posted by great builders with great success to my own builds .... And to all of those I greatly thank you .... I will still check in to see the posts / builds but will not participate in any way shape or form because of the way members here are treated ... Everything can be worked out ... But to "stalk" , "hound" and disrespect members because of opinions and statements are totally and unconstitutionally frightening ... This is the United States of America ! ... It was built on opinions ... Rubbing people the wrong way ! , saying things that could hurt people's feeling ! ... Get a grip people ... !!! ... This is a place for our freedom of speech ... Our way to express ourselves .... And for god sakes a modeling forum ... not the Senent Floor ! If you have nothing to do but read every post on this forum you must have a sad existence ... Sorry but that is nothing but truth : /

HEY MODIRATORS ! ... Why haven't you put a lock on every post of the General Lee ! ... I find that very offensive !!! ... Let's think about what's going on here ! ... Fair is FAIR !!!!

New MODIRATORS are a must !
Get a grip guys ... Or maybe a job ! ... : /

You want this to be a success ...? ... Let it flow ... Let people express them selves ... America was and is built and our views and opinions ... Good bad or indifferent ... Lets get this thing squared away ... I'll check back in a few months to see how things are going ... Hopefully I will be suprised ... If not ... no big deal ... I will find new friends with open minds and big hearts ready to teach and learn ...
Was going to subscribe to the mag ... MODIRATORS put a stop to that ... Hopefully Gregg reads this ... Ones not enough to throw up a flag but I'm sure there are others that feel the same way but stand firm hoping YOU will DO something ... Please DO something !

Good bye my friend ... ( for now )

Goodyear Tire Question

23 October 2012 - 02:39 PM

Would anyone know what kits came with the Goodyear Blue Streak Speedway Special tires ?
In measuring the tires I have the inside diameter is 20 mm the outside diameter measures 30 mm and the width measures 13 mm ... I'm looking for rims that will fit these dimensions ... Everything I have in my parts box are
16 mm ... Thanks for the help in advance ... Hopefully I can find rims now ... The tires are really cool ... Got 16 of them in a junk box at a garage sale

Short Track 50's Modified.

13 September 2012 - 02:19 PM

This is a newly started project ... It's a modified race car ... Started out with a scrap body I got in a bunch of kits I got from a member over on Fred's forum ... Cut the bottom off of it ... Removed the door pillars and opened up the side and rear windows ... Jim at Micro Nitro is machining some great "WIDE 5's" for me as we speek ... Can't wait to get those ... Hope to get a lot done on this over the weekend ... Thinking of this being my first real contest model entry ...
Heres the first mock-up photo.

Not sure there are any members that are interested in this type of modeling projects ... Just thought I'd show you all.

Any comments or criticisms are always welcome

House of Kolor paints question ...

31 August 2012 - 10:45 AM

I have a real quick question ... I bought 50 bottles of this paint

Posted Image

Has any one used this type of paint ?

What do you thin it with to spray through an air brush ?

Is it good paint ?

Got it really cheap at a swap meet ... Paid fifty cents a piece all bottles are sealed and new .
Is it a good deal ?
I'm just now trying my hand at air brushing so any help would be great

Thanks
Steve B.
