      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

    The 1/24 Scale History Story?
    This is a historical question concerning the model industry.  I am not a big fan of 1/24 drag scale model cars.  1/25 scale is my preference.  Why did the model companies adopt  a 1/24 scale?  As you car modelers know, the difference is small, but drastic (if you know what I mean).  WHAT IS THE STORY?  Would love to hear the "scoop" from you drag car model historians. Thanks

       Comparing the Don Garlits AMT/Ertl kit to the MPC Yellow Feather, they are basically the same.  I guess AMT/Ertl and MPC got together???

     I just picked up the MPC Don Prudhomme Yellow Feather Rear Engine Dragster kit.  Compared It to the AMT Ertl Don Garlits Wynn's Charger Rear Dragster kit that I had on my shelf.  It is almost identical.    What gives????????????

    It would be nice to see the front hood clip without the grille.

    Revell Anglia
     I saw on the Revell site they are reissuing their 51 Anglia.  Would love to see a blown Kohler Bros. or Shore's & Hess version.   Wishful thinking???

    Perry's Resin
     Might anyone know if Perry's Resin is still in business? It is not on the aftermarket list.  However, I heard he has opened a hobby shop.
