      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

    I can appreciate all of them but none of them really have that 'gotcha' factor for me. Maybe Aftershock comes close but even it seems like a plagiarized Figoni et Falaschi bodied Talbot Lago or Bugatti. Don't get me wrong I'd put any one of them in my garage but none of them really bowl me over. 
    Does anyone know if  AMBR has to be an 'American made car'? Hmmmmm.

    I just have to chime in because I find it 'odd' the suggestions to buy a new kit to restore an old kit that is the same as the new kit. Then he will be left with a new kit that needs the same parts...this perplexes me.

    ...and when they say some guy dropped the mold and it broke...well it was dropped from a forklift...the molds way a ton, literally.

    All I can think of when seeing these big boats is Ricardo Montalban saying...'fine corinthian leather.'

    Bill Jorgenson is no longer producing kits. You will occasionally see a 1/25 turbine on ebay. His castings have been going for large dollars lately. I'd expect to pay upwards of $100 dollars. His kits were delivered in various states of completeness...with a note attached he'd send you the parts when he got them...usually metal parts or windscreens. Sometimes you got a 'transkit'.  He still owes me 3 kit that were bought and paid for off of ebay(and I'm not the only one in this situation). I doubt I'll ever see them. His ebay handle was toonces2jay. I'm pretty sure I have every casting he did...most I purchased at shows so I knew what I was getting. He sold off nearly all of his masters to other people, Lance Sellers has some as does Rick Faeth and myself. Turns out he sold Rick Faeth and myself the master for the Chaparral 2K. The kits do require some work but can be built into some fine Indy car replicas.

    Cool...but it is not a truck until it has mudflap girls. LOL

    Fantasy F5000 Eagle
    When I was a member of a local model car club, I started a white elephant gift exchange for a Christmas party. We did this in December and then presented out built 'elephants' in February. This was my fantasy F5000 Eagle from a number of years ago. I made the 'Bianco Pacoderm Racing Team'  Decals on my ALPS and added details from my parts bin. This started as the MPC 1968 Indy Eagle.

  13. mrindy77 added a post in a topic Schroeder steering gear?   

    I believe the unit in the Monogram sprint cars are all the same and they are KSE. They look similar but the are not a Schroeder.  I've contemplated scratch building one and casting...if that comes to fruition I will post here. 
  14. mrindy77 added a post in a topic Dyno Don Pro Stock Pinto Color?   

    Ford Poppy red was the same color AJ Foyt used on all of Indy Cars. This is well documented. Look at some pics of his 1977 Indy 500 winning Coyote and compare them to you pro stock. Foyt coined this color "Coyote" red.

    I'm not real familiar with the pro touring scene and I have question regarding this style. Do they typically run them without inner fender wells? I would think if they get driven it would beat the heck out of the fenders from road klag. Did you have to leave them off the car to get it to sit right? Thanks, just curious.
