  1. Hobby Lobby 20% Off All Kits

    20% off HL model prices still leaves them more expensive than my LHS.
  2. Stevens Hobbies abbrevations

    Temporarily Out of Stock.
  3. HA! If you're so inclined you can always take them out to a field and shoot at them. Please note I'm certainly no misogynist but my ex is so bat carp crazy our daughter hasn't spoken to her in 10 years. Don't ask me why we got married, just young and dumb.
  4. Nor crushing them out of frustration. They also have no concern how you actually feel about them or their feelings, and your not obligated to explain your actions or feelings to them. You can have other hobbies or spend time doing other things you enjoy without complaint. If you make a poor choice of models it doesn't come back to bite you in the behind later, you can always dispose of them with no consequences.
  5. Jeez Bill, and I thought wife number 1 was aaah, crazy!?! Been there seen that! At least she didn't get my models, motorcycles, guns or guitars in the divorce. And I did get a wonderful daughter who's nothing like her mother.
  6. You can upgrade them or get rid of them if you lose interest Oh and they generally look better the older they get. (Although the misses is aging far more gracefully than I am)
  7. Postmodernism comes to SEMA

    Ridiculous, perhaps. But as YouTube videos of show coverage and highlights continue to be posted, this car seems to have certainty garnered more than mild interest.
  8. Mega Millions.....

  9. Vintage Auto Art

    The name on the link says Will Davies, however Art Fitzpatrick was Pontiac's acclaimed ad artist from 1959 thru 1972. He did the auto renderings while Van Kaufman was responsible for the background and people for the illustrations. This is the first time I've seen Mr Davies's name attached to GM ad art as some of the subjects I've come across have been for Chrysler and it's various divisions besides the usual book covers he did.
  10. Indy Rod

    Extremely cool! What media? And on what type of paper?
  11. Kookies Tee in a plastic kit ?

    If you have Amazon Prime check out "The Car That Ate My Brain" Artist Von Franco's quest to build an exact replica of Norm's T. Has lots of historical video and is excellent reference for building any one of the versions, many of the changes are explained in the narrative.
  12. Mr. Porsche's model train layout: yes, THAT Porsche

    Rod Stewart's layout was featured on PBS's Tracks Ahead (I think) a number of years ago. Even my wife, who generally doesn't pay much attention to stuff like that was impressed. I don't have room for a layout in my basement, will be occupied by my slot car tracks when they're finished. I do however have a number of trains, Walthers beautiful Hiawatha set and I'm working on completing Con-Cor's GM Aero Train in HO plus I have a number of interesting pieces of rolling stock I've collected over the years. Still have my Bachmann set from my childhood that's set up around the Christmas tree when we put one up. For now that's about as close to a layout that I'll have.
  13. Test Shots and Other Parts Oddities

    Ford never made a factory Deuce town car but it was produced as a Model A.
  14. Mr. Porsche's model train layout: yes, THAT Porsche

    I agree. I pulled up the video to my 70" TV, thought it was cool watching on my phone but wow! What an incredible layout! Thanks for sharing.
