      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

    Great work, John! Clever the way you've caught the slightly 'cross-eyed' look of the 1:1 from that inspired source of a rear bumper!
    -Don.

    That's really well done, I'd like a 1:1 like that!

    Any colour you like, as long as it's black.

    Well they're in the trade as well! They may recommend which brand of fluid to waste your money on too. Although it may make sense if you only do 1000 miles a year.

    PM sent! I knew this one, once seen never forgotten!
    Thanks,
    -Don.

    I'd buy that kit! And suddenly it dawns that 1/24 is 1/2=1ft! Doh.
    So how to radius those arches?

    And thanks Bill for the lovely shot of the crate motor. The greatest hot rod never properly raced, I love it anyway.

    When I was racing my BMW 2002 turbo we used an extra fuel injector into the plenum chamber, to enrich the mixture (it originally had a single injector into the throttle body). We tried a set-up with an extra injector per individual inlet port but that drowned it out at anything under 7000 rpm, so wasn't of much use! If only we'd had a bigger development budget...

    Which words?

    Absolutely!

    Really lovely model, Ben. Would they really have stayed with that big fan for a quarter mile car though? Maybe bolt it back on along with the plates and the road wheels on the back to drive home...
    It draws you in like that, well done.
    -Don.

    Call me cussed but I don't see any Chevrolets so how can this be the top 13? Now if Metallica's singer had an Small Block in his '32....

    Funnily enough, my first reaction to the artwork above was 'The perfect shopping car' - then I clicked the link and read 'As a kid, I thought the Badman would be the perfect automobile for all- around daily use: big-block Chevy, open headers, straight front axle, and “Adios Mother” painted across the trunk lid'.
    What's not to like?
    -Don.

    In the UK You Tube / skater scene there's arisen a big thing for 'epic fails', Usually involving extremely painful contact with trees or park benches and always extremely embarrassing and equally amusing for the bystanders... Dunno if that's made it across the pond? Or maybe that's where it came from? I must admit I like the irony in the expression.

    Fascinating how a language evolves in different ways depending where it's used. I think we're the richer for it...
