      Urgent Maintenance   07/18/2018

      I will be taking the board offline some time this evening to solve an urgent server issue. Don't have an estimated duration, but it shouldn't take too long. Sorry for the short notice, but we're in a bind here.

  1. I just wanted to share a great experience I had with Joe and Freemont Racing Specialties. I purchased a Fiat dragster, the "Sudden Death" or what I had called the Frank Pedregon Fiat. The body arrived damaged, even though it was packed really well. I contacted Joe, and he immediately offered a full refund, or another body to replace the damaged one. He kept me informed, and was quick to respond. The new one arrived today with a bonus to "Make up for the trouble" as Joe put it. This was my first purchase, but will not be my last as the body was free of flash, had nice crisp lines, and is as thin as a regular model body. It's a nice feeling dealing with people of good values, and fine craftsmanship. Jimmy
  2. "Wild Cad" on the Bench.....Continued

    It's about four pages down the list.That where I found it.
  3. Thanks for the answer John. If you don't mind, could you tell me about the rims for the fronts? Did they come with the Deeks wheel kit? Thanks again, Jimmy
  4. Really excited about this build by three of the best. I have a question for John. Are you just using half of the Herb Deeks wire wheels to make the dragster front wheels? Thanks !

    John, did you use small diodes and transistors for detailing the jet engine? It looks awesome !

    It's amazing the vision you have taking something from pieces of plastic to such realistic looking finished pieces. just when I wonder what will John do next, the next incredible installment arrives. Thanks John for making me log in every day to see what's next !

  11. Jet Powered Train / Dragster : On The Workbench 2/8/18

    It's coming together great. You've got great vision as it's evolved so much from your initial mock-up. It's always exciting to see where your next update takes us.
  12. Jet Powered Train / Dragster : On The Workbench 2/8/18

    John, another great one on the bench. I'm sure you have a jet engine in mind, but just in case I've got a couple of these laying around I could send you. Let me know. I can't wait to see how this one turns out.
  13. Grab those bargains off those racks... (HL sale)

    I asked the store manager here today about it, and she replied they were going to a straight 75% off, rather than starting at 40% off to make it easier to clear them out rather than having to keep marking them down. I got the 49.99 AMT Ladder Truck for 12.49, and a '57 Ford Gasser Wagon, and '51 Chevy convertible for $7.50 each.
  14. Revell '57 Ford Gasser

    I picked a couple of these up today at Hobby Lobby on clearance for $7.50 each.
  15. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    No pictures, but got two Revell '57 Ford gasser Wagons, an AMT "Der Beetle Bus" , an AMT Man In Space Five Complete Nasa Rocket Kits, and a Monogram 1/32 Sherman M4A1 "Screamin" Mimi for $7.50 each. I've never seen kits marked down this low on the first go around.
