    I got a little portable reel-to-reel recorder in about 1966
     

     
    The first thing I recorded was the sound of the toilet flushing
    Later I used it to record my experiments with my Gilbert chemistry set

    I had a dream one time where this guy was throwing darts at me and one hit me right in the elbow, which hurt like heck. He continued to throw darts at me with me dodging them until his supply was exhausted and the darts were stuck in the ground all around me- I gathered them up and had them all in one hand forming a big round circle of darts, which flew from my hand like they were rocket-propelled and hit him in the head and neck. Then I flew away.

    AMT "Blueprinter" kit #8158 has 4 engines, a bunch of grilles and bumpers, and several sets of pipes that I think would look good for rat rods. Just something to check out.
  7. Mike_G added a post in a topic Painting/priming over a Red or Yellow molded body?   

    I used PlastiKote white sandable primer on my '53 Victoria that was molded in red and didn't get any bleed-through. In fact, the top is just primer that I wetsanded and clearcoated.

    I used to go to IPMS meetings, they're mostly focused on airplanes but there were always a few car kits that people took in trade that were really cheap.

    Motorcycles are usually posted under "all the rest", but I agree they should have their own category.

    I was a member over at escale but haven't visited there in awhile, it was a good site with good people- I enjoyed the diversity.

    My family is French, so I was allowed to drink wine at family get-togethers since I was about 12

  14. Mike_G added a post in a topic what paint do you use   

    +1, except I use Testors flat black enamel for the undersides of hoods, engine compartments, and wheelwells because any overspray can be easily removed with a swab and mineral spirits without affecting the lacquer body paint
