      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

    Hey JC. I don't have any shots of the engine during the build. Maybe I'll try and get some other angles over the weekend.

    Hey Dale - thanks for the inspiration on your build from 2012 (I think)!

    Dome Zero
    Hi. Just finished the Dome Zero racer by Fujimi. Thanks to MCM Ohana Dale Beaver who posted some pictures way back and served as an inspiration for some of the detail work. A difficult build - but they all seem difficult lately!

    Beautiful paint! What's your process? (I won't tell anybody your secret is safe with 16,000 forum members )

    Wow. Love the paint! What did you use?

    Thanks inter2353. I was leaning in that direction too. Happy New Year to all the MCM forum members.

    The only fitment problem I had was with the hood. Couldn't quite get that to fit tightly and I had the same issue with the panel van as well. At some point, I have to just move on.

    Thanks, guys. The color is tamiya clear orange over white primer.

    Finally finished this off before the end of the New Year. Definitely a challenge, but fun. Did some "on the workbench" photos here http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/119251-47-chevy-fleetmaster-galaxie/

    Ok...on to some test fitting and detailing. Have to figure out a way to clean up the panel lines - got a couple of ideas on that. Next shot will probably be the completed model

    If you have this same kit and are thinking about building it in the lowered position (like I am) - a friendly tip. You'll have to 1) trim the firewall and radiator from the bottom so the hood fits. 2) Trim the air cleaner from the bottom so it fits lower on the carb - then the hood can clear that piece piece too.

    I agree, I think it's something like a blower motor. I did some research and it seems like the master cylinder on the 1:1 is between the frame and the passenger seat. Like Chris said.

    The logo in the steering wheel was a good idea, but I realized after seeing it that it should probably be another 50% reduced in scale. Oh well. I could fiddle with it more, but it falls into the category of knowing "when to say when" for me. Onward.
