  2. Podcasts ?

    I am thinking Podcasts and youtube "how-tos" and "product revues" may be a bit different.

    Our local Club (SABA) will be discussing the use of making Podcasts to help promote model building for the younger generation. I have zero experience with podcasts. I would like your thoughts on the subject. Thanks

  13. Dyed clear rear window

    I filled the Cobra body with clay, now that you reminded me. Not sure what plastic I was using thou ?
  14. Dyed clear rear window

    I dug out my old homemade vacuum former for reference. I made this after reading an article in a model mag, somewhere in the 90's. I had good access to plexiglass at the time. It was designed to use a shop vac.connected via the plumbing connectors. I have so been unable to find the metal framework with handle that would clamp around a sheet of plastic (8.5 x 11). The method of operation was to place the buck (item to be copied) on the top and heat the plastic sheet mounted in the framework, place it in a toaster oven until the plastic started to sag. Then quickly place it over the vacuum box and hit the shop vac "on" switch. I only used it once to try and duplicate a Cobras Daytona body for slot car use. Unfortunately it would not curve inwards at the base of the sides.
  15. Sorry, Not in my book

    Thats a hard no from me. But everybody is entitled to their own taste. Even an ugly child is loved by their Mama
