    Incredible work John, but that's the norm for you. Is the real bike still in your family or in a museum somewhere? It's always a thrill to see
    your next posts from all your projects. Looking forward to following your "Mongoose" Corvette build.
    Good luck at the show this weekend.

    Hello Tim !
    This is my first post in response to your incredible craftsmanship and skills. I have watched every build you have posted with baited breath waiting for the next update like a kid on Christmas morning. I hope you understand that not making posts of your builds means indifference from people such as me. With so many of the most accomplished builders commenting on your work, there's not a lot to be added from a "greenhorn" such as me. Anyway I wanted to share this with you, but you have most likely seen it as the picture seems to be the one you posted at the beginning of your project.
    Thanks for your time,
    Jimmy

    I ordered from him and it took nearly two years of constant of calling to get it. I had all but given up on it and it just showed up in the mail box one day.

    I've seen posts on Facebook in the TDR group talking about coating the bodies with superglue, then sanding. Seems like a lot of extra work. Any of you guys hear about this procedure?

    Hello Chris,
    I have admired your work and skills since I joined the forum. Watching the builds of yourself  and others such as John T. and "Codi's" are true inspirations. This is my first post in reference to any of your posts, and because I haven't done so,  I hope you understand that it's not indifference, just not sure what I could add to the kudos showered upon you guys.
    Anyway, I was wondering about the front engine dragster frame if some bracing for rigidity during shipping might be added, then removed for the build? I appreciate your time, and the effort of keeping us informed on your incredible work.
    Regards, and hoping you have a good holiday season.

    "Temporarily Unavailable" on the Revell site. Maybe there's a glimmer of hope.

    Where did you get the work surface you are soldering on?
    Great work.
    Thanks,

    I remember seeing that build, it was really nice. Seems a lot more economical way to go than a laser cutter.
    Thanks for taking time to reply.

    You might look at the "Big Time Muscle" die cast cars at Wal-Mart. Not sure of the scale, but they might work. Wide tires and nice mags.

    Great job !  What scrapbook cutter are you using, and are you able to use the software that came with it, or do you have to purchase a different program?
    Also what is the maximum thickness you can cut, and do you have to use the adhesive carrier for cutting?
    Thanks for your time,
    Jimmy

    I've purchased it Wal-Mart in the past. Once you get used to one label they seem to change it around.

    I ordered a body from him and it took well over a year and a half to receive it. After months of calls, "it was shipped" at least three times I had pretty much given up, and then it just showed up. There was an extra dragster body and some slicks I hadn't ordered included. I love the body, but I just wouldn't order anything else, as it was far too an aggravating experience.
    He was always pleasant, and apologetic and finally delivered. I just can not endorse doing any more business with him.

    Honestly I had not called him in several months, and had decided it was a write off. Then one day, there it was in the mailbox.

    I wasn't trying to make excuses for him, and it is a shame because the items I received were really good quality. I also was not trying to make light of all the people whom may be still waiting for their orders after I received mine. I do feel he should not take orders if he can not fulfill them in a reasonable amount of time. I have seen posts of others whom have had slow delivery from other casters, and I can see how it would be easy to be overwhelmed with orders, and unable to fill them in a timely fashion. These are just my opinions, and not an endorsement of his business practices, nor am I trying to exonerate him for unfilled orders. I was very angry after six months were up, but there was nothing I could have done from Texas. Threats or foul language would have been fruitless, as were my quarterly calls.
