Welcome to the forum Chuck, I was working in NC recently and the local Tri state IPMS chapter made me very welcome indeed, it was really great to meet like minded modellers and see what they were doing, their models were fantastic and they were only too willing to exchange tips. I thank them all. Foggy 2.
Yes that's the one, I could spend hours and hours in there, your so lucky to have it on the doorstep, I have to travel for an hour or so just my nearest store which is limited to what stock they carry because of space!!!! Rgds, Foggy 2.
Hi Eric, Welcome to the forum, I know where you work, I was for a couple of months working at Air Canada in Montreal taking back a A319 for a lease company. My good friend was the rep taking new build 601's onto the Australian Government register. We found a really good model shop downtown which sold just about everything. Lucky we were ferrying aircraft all over the place so the extra suitcases were not a problem as we had the aircraft to ourselves. I'm a truck builder myself but I do make the odd car as well just to break up the production line!!!!! Enjoy the forum. Rgds, Foggy 2.
Hi Michael and welcome to the forum, boy you must have a load of stories to tell hauling those logs out with some difficult drives along those logging tracks. I'm very interested in my name sake "Hayes" logging trucks, did any of them make it all the way down to CA??? Can't wait to hear back from you. Rgds, Foggy 2.
Welcome back Lee, like you I had a blip when the kids came along and my Man cave was requisitioned and all my modelling gear were transferred into the house loft............really cold in the winter. The man cave was re-established again after a long period and I'm modelling again...............I then took a complete rethink and moved from Aircraft to Trucks and Cars, so had to sell all my Aircraft kits and get a new stash of Trucks and Cars.............Never looked back since, the stash has just passed the 250 mark and there is still a lot of plastic out there.........................Enjoy the forum.
Hi Vladimir, Welcome to the forum, there is a wealth of info and technical tips to be found here. Just build to make yourself happy and your memories will come flooding back, it's good to remember so just show him what you can build now, I'm sure he would have liked whatever you build. Friends are here enjoy them. Wow that's really deep for a Monday morning Eh!!! Rgds, Foggy2.
Hi Ed, Welcome to the forum, us old guys have to stick together Eh!!!! I'm 66 and still learning, it sometimes takes me a while to remember things, but then we've got a load more interesting stuff to filter through before we get to that bit of knowledge that somebody requested last week!!!! Enjoy the forum old friend and make the most of it, we all do, some great guys on this site. Rgds, Foggy 2.
Hi Mark / Guys, I use Beading wire 28 Gauge, I order it on line and each real has 24 Yards / 22 Meters of wire, it's available in a large number of colours as well. I'll try and attaché a photo to show you all. Rgds, Foggy 2. Also a wise old man said "don't stand next to an idiot, people could think your with him" !!!!!!!
Hi Darrell, Welcome to the forum, you have come to the right place for info and just plain asking the guys / girls "how did you do that" I just love that 67 LeMans Blue SS/RS Camaro, it's also so nice to just go outside or into the garage to take a look at the 1:1 car and measure up just to be sure. Now I'm so lucky with green cars, three departed the road on me and the other a British Racing Green TR4 IRS got rid of it's engine through the hood on a race track day, the trip back on a rescue truck was not such a great trip as it also hit another truck and itself had to be rescued. You have a great time with the forum, all your models are great.
Hey Doug welcome to the forum. Really nice Payhaulers and 71 Ford Ranger. We do not see many of these kits over here in Europe and if one turns up it's really costly so it's nice to see two Payhaulers together one in the build and one complete. When I come over to the US on one of my work trips I always bring an extra suitcase just in case I can add to my stash.
