      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

    I don't shoot a wet coat with anything hot until I've built up a sort of "barrier layer" of several light mist coats and let them dry

    No Charlie Pride fans?

    Did you enjoy yourself last night dear, how was the show?
    You know that I don't mind it when you go
    I understand sometimes we all need time alone
    but why do you always leave your ring at home?

    I have several empty bottles and would be willing to share

    Old 2/3oz Pactra RC car paint bottles fit Badger siphon type airbrushes perfectly

    Does she have poor circulation?

    That would appear to be the case

    Thanks for the heads-up, I'm not much into bananas and rarely drink milk but I'll check it out
    These cramps really seem like a nerve thing- my toes get locked in a painful curled position and a hard spot wells up in the bottom of my foot. If I massage the heck out of the bottom of my foot, my toes eventually release.

    You need to get the metal particles pressed down into the carrier before it gets too hard to do so, as you've found out
    I never wait longer than ~45 minutes
    The aluminum plate will buff out to the highest shine, but is more finicky and delicate than the stainless steel

    I've been getting really painful cramps in my feet

    Pretty studly
  12. Mike_G added a post in a topic Painting Trim question   

    If you paint the body with lacquer and use enamel for the trim and screw it up, you can clean it off with mineral spirits without harming the body paint
  13. Mike_G added a post in a topic ? for Ebay experts   

    All you need is a space between the multiple exclusions, for example I collect cups made of cow horn but don't want to wade through all the carved yak horn cups from China, or the pointy "viking" or "game of thrones" ones, so I search for "horn cup" -chinese -viking -thrones
  14. Mike_G added a post in a topic Throwing Away Old Stuff..   

    I have boxes and boxes of stuff that isn't actually junk, but that I'll probably never use. Some of it is somewhat valuable- like an original radio for a '72 BMW or NOS parts for old turntables and tape recorders
  15. Mike_G added a post in a topic Another Reason.   

    I'm only using Tamiya and (rarely) 3M fine-line tapes these days
    If I have to mask a large area I use paper and just tape the edges
