  1. The drummer for Yes died at 72. My favorite band and I really enjoyed his talented drumming. Bums me out big time!
  2. I mostly use epoxy or Testors canopy glue if the fit is perfect and it's a small piece. The epoxy can be a good bond for those windows that only have a couple of places that allow glue to be applied if you know what I'm meaning.
  3. I just did a test fit on the windows. The rear has a hint of a gap on both sides and the front has a worse gap on both sides. Both of them have little to no extra area on which to glue them in place.
  4. The kit is in real nice shape with no flash and tires are plain sidewall current looking radials. Yes, slicks would be nice along with any other extras to build a drag version. I have plenty of slicks in my stash and wheels to use but my big gripe is don't advertise I can build it stock or drag and not include the parts to actually build it drag. They snookered me into buying this kit and I ended up with a stock '57 Chevy which I don't want.
  5. Excellent so far! Even more detail that you will be adding is going to make this one of the best I've seen.
  6. Nope. There is a blower option and straight front axle but that's it. All stock parts and nothing extra.
  7. I really like what you've done here. Very 60's looking and your Tiki Hut is well done using your imagination for something different. I built this kit a few years ago and enjoyed it for what it was.
  8. The Atlantis '57 Chevy; build it stock or drag. Real disappointed after opening the box to find nothing much to build a drag version. Just assumed when it said "build it drag" there would be some slicks, etc. but there's nothing.
  9. A bit of a Frankenstein then. I like it!
  10. That's scary to hear but sounds like they got it and you can move on. Hopefully that's it from here on out. A healthy good looking dog!
  11. Wow. That looks just like the movie monster. A very well done figure and a well done movie, I might add.
  12. I have no interest in "self-driving" cars. I get strange looks when I tell people I have never used cruise control on long trips. After buying a new car I check to see if it works but that's it. I'm just too much of a hands on driver. I want to be in control at all times. Luckily I'm old enough that I won't be needing one of these fancy cars anyway.
  13. Never enters their mind that injury or death can occur because it hasn't happened to them and they figure it won't. The mindset is "me first" and " me, me, I, I" as what I refer to it. Everything I need to do is more important than anyone else. The red light or speed limit isn't meant for me. And so on...
  14. Real nice! Gotta be fun to recreate something from an earlier memory.
  15. Decals and extra parts are saved but when looking thru them for something in particular I can't find what I need. Doesn't stop me from continuing to do it. I used to save boxes and instructions but now toss them in the recycling. Been at this too long and realize there's no reason to keep everything.
  16. Very nice job! btw, I've built numerous Tamiya Mini Coopers. When you find a kit that goes together well it's enjoyable to keep building variations of it.
  17. Haven't seen too many of his movies but the one that stands out for me is Timerider from 1982. He's riding an off-road motorcycle and gets caught in some time warp that takes him back in time. Some bad guys and action and a weird situation involving a woman. Don't even know if you can find it out there.
  18. When I first clicked on this subject I expected to see the little transistor radios you held in your hand but these are really cool. The mention of old shortwave radios reminded me of one I had from my Dad that was huge and made of metal. Can't find anything like it on the Internet.
  19. I haven't been there for many years but it looks like they have a lot more cars than before. And quite an assortment. Thanks for the pictures.
  20. You did a great job on this kit. Thanks for sharing it as it brought back memories that I built it long ago and know it never looked this good.
  21. Ahhhh the old school Hydroplane races. Good luck with your build. Take care with those old decals.
  22. I've seen the dog poo bag situation myself and never understood it either. I have a little bag on my belt that I put the poo bags in. Not hard to figure this out beforehand.
  23. Never heard of Samantha Fish but was curious about the odd guitars you mentioned so gave a listen. I kind of like the music. And yes, definitely nice to look at. My wife liked the music too.
  24. Time for another delivery complaint. All week long UPS showed I'd get my package by 7 pm Friday but on Friday it showed "on its way" which meant I didn't get it. Today it says delivery by 7 pm again with "on its way". As far as I know UPS doesn't deliver on Saturday unless it was requested or critical or a business and none of those are me. I usually prefer UPS for my shipping but seems they've fallen into the same hole as the others.
