      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

    Cool. I know for a fact that the Dollar General store has the Totally Awesome on the shelves!

    I see it's an old thread but has anyone finished one of these Mustangs recently? It seems as if they threw the tooling together and nothing fits quite right.

    55 Chevy side trim...Best way to put on
    Doing a '55 Bel Air..The chrome strips that run from the door to the bumper is making me nervous ..How would you glue that on and not get glue all over the paint..Iwas thinking of using blue tape to protect it but I backed off that idea for now

    What ever you do don't put the cap in a vise and twist the glass with your hand.....
    I did that when I was 11 and still have the scar between my thumb and index finger (6 stitches and a very upset mom)

    I just bought a 200C with a V-6. It's a quick car. I did like the S but the wife liked the C

    As usual ....Nice work.

    New stuff can go also pretty quick. Just got my wife a 2015 Chrysler 200C (V6) . From roadtest info it is the equal of a '68 Camaro in 0-60 and 1/4 mile performance and it's basically a family car.

    Raw water cooled is easiest. Otherwise you have to have a way to vent a lot of air out of the engine compartment.
    BTW a really cool build.

    I bought my Mega-Millions ticket this afternoon. If I win I'm getting that done in 1:1

    I was thinking the same with wires going to the amps. I'll agree the guitars should be different too

    Garbage Truck by Monogram
    Doing the Monogram Garbage truck....Any suggestions as to colors of the band? Also looking to get "depth" on the figures I tried a light wash of black but it looked crappy. I do have earth toned chalk. Should I just use the next darkest color and hit them with Dullcote?
    Thanks for looking!

    He does have a point. I'm sure a $400 cocktail dress (with a designer tag) made in Honduras or China probably is close to that example.
    If it costs them 49¢ to make and they can sell them at $15.99 they will. The original point was a kit sells for not much more than the parts pack does. The parts pack was just wheels and tires, without the rest of the kit.
