      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

    Let's just say I'm a little lazy on this forum. Amt youre right.

    Oh and this car will be painted Ferrari red , with the black bottom 2 tone. The interior will be tan. It will pretty much be just like it's real counterpart, besides the color of the rims. I don't like how the chrome or aluminum wheels look on the real 1:1 , so I decided to paint the wheels black. It gives it a more sinister look to it!

    Monogram 512bb Ferrari
    So this is my newest build, I got it for free from my brother. This is a curbside model, very few parts count. Have any of you guys built one of these before? Did you encounter issues with the gaps in the hood? The manual Reccomends to live the hood open, something tells me monogram knew of this problem haha. I usually don't like leaving the hoods open on my models, but I guess I will have to on this one

    I got these for $6 a piece. Idk why I really love Indy cars from the 80s. I think it was a great time in that sport.

    Ain't I a lucky dude? I got all the versions of my favorite year Ford F-150! These are quite rarities nowadays what do you guys think?

    Oh and please do not use cursive font style on your threads like many do on here! It's to hard to read. I tend too just glance at the pictures when this happens, and go to the next thread lol. Can I also say something else for those guys that claim they only build for themselves? I don't think that's completely true, if you only built for yourself you probably wouldn't be on this website, but I do understand it's the masculine thing to say. I do not think builders that claim they only build for themselves would bother posting pictures of their models on here if that was the case. If I were to take a guess I would say forum members do value others opinions to a certain extent. people post their works on here seeking to get some type of confirmation of their good work. There is nothing wrong with positive reinforcement, we desire it all the time. We seek positive reinforcement t in our careers, children, wife/ significant other, hobbies sports etc. if you've ever won a trophy, got a raise, got lucky on that date in which you've a
    had your A game, or were told how good you were making a certain dish, well , you just experienced positive reinforcement. And its a beautiful feeling my friend .. ...... 🎉🎊🏆🏁🏇🏻🚀

    I would not worry about it my friend, I think it's safe to say it happens to all of us every now and then. However, Just to give you some pointers that  I think would be a mutual benefit for both the builder, and the viewer would be to make sure you have decent pictures. Please have good steady quality pictures, multiple angles, and somewhat decent grammar. I cannot stress how many times I've attempted to read a sentence from a forum member, which hardly makes any sense. To be honest, this happens 80% of the time I attempt to read what a person is wanting to get across In a  model kit they've built. I'm not sure if it's laziness, or not enough of a proper education. I am not saying I'm perfect either, I'm sure an English professor can spot many mistakes within this paragraph ! Nonetheless, what you are experiencing happens thru cycles as the other guy mentioned earlier,especially if your building a run of the mill kit. Don't be so hard on yourself, and do not let anyone's opinion or lack of thereof affect your enjoyment of the hobby. I am fortunate enough to have my daughter use positive reinforcement on me whenever I complete a car lol. I know my builds are possibly a 7  out of 10, but as long as I'm happy with the paint job,  or detail work , I'm good with that :). I have decided a long time ago not to lose my mind in this hobby, otherwise it would become a chore.

    Thanks a lot for the kind compliments guys, I'm glad many liked it.  I'm really digging the yellow on the impala as well, I keep glancing every now and then in its display case.
