      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Very nice looking model.  What color did you paint it?  In some of the pictures it looks gold and silver in others.

    Great job!  I built that kit a number of years ago and it is still one of my all time favorite builds.

    Excellent work!  The weathering is very subtle, which in my opinion, adds to the realism.

    Looks real good. I am not what would have caused the Future to create a spider web effect.  I have used Future for many years and that has not happened to me.  The good thing about Future is that Windex will take it off, so you shouldn't mess up the paint beneath.

    When making the red or yellow stripe on the wheels, I do this.  If the wheel does not come in white, paint it flat white.  When the white paint is dry, paint the wheel flat black.  When the black dries (the paint really has to be dry before doing the next step), hold an xacto knife at a very shallow angle to the wheel.  You want the knife almost flat against the wheel.  Then drag the knife around the wheel slowly in about 1/8th inch lengths at a time until the white paint shows through.  When there is a white stripe around the wheel, use a red or yellow Sharpie and color the white stripe the appropriate color.  Apply a semi gloss clear coat and the wheel is done.  Below are a couple of examples.

    Great looking model.  I remember watching Dexter's Lab with our kids when they were small.  Brings back some memories.
