      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

    Lone Wolf, do you have any pics of the end results using the pastel chalks?

    It's the heavy caked on look is what I'm after, I like the idea with the baking soda mixed with paint. Thanks for the tip.....

    need advice on how to build an engine to look old and greasy.
    I'm currently working on building the revell plow truck model. I have been modeling for many years, mostly primarly aircraft but do work on cars from time to time. I want to take this one in a totally different direction by making it look like an old beat up worn out plow rig. I already have planned out to build a flat bed to match my own plow truck and I plan to make rust holes etc. I've rusted the frame and suspension etc. already but am looking for advice and tips on painting the engine to look old, leaky and oily. realism is the whole goal here, not shiny and new like I see quite frequently. I tried to upload a photo of the frame but upload failed three times even using different browsers. :-(
