  1. Cool, but now you will have to change batteries in it every so often. Good old analog is still the best in my book.
  2. This is where this grade-school level math comes in handy. The stuff we didn't think we'll ever use.
  3. Making some fruit liqueurs

    Yeah, American chocolates don't compare to the European ones (where most have at least some alcohol). Fortunately there are many places in US where you can buy European chocolates. German Deli in Texas is one of them. They have online store. I always place a large order there around Christmas. Wake up your taste buds with these: https://www.germandeli.com/Sweets/All_Liquor_filled_Chocolates I also have a small local store with Polish goodies (including chocolates). Good stuff!
  4. Have a palatte cleanser.

    I like it!
  5. Wild Thing

    Well then, it looks like age and taste in cars have nothing in common. Even the curretn Corvette was a bit too much for me, but it sort of grew on me (but only in certain color combos). What I found interesting is that it appears that the Swiss front license plates are made as a mirror image (so they can be easily read by the driver in the car in front of them)?
  6. Wild Thing

    A bit too wild and cartoonish for my tastes. Too much. But I hang with the "over 50" crowd.
  7. PhotoBucket's Back?

    I also agree that this would be a very smart thing to do. Who knows when PB will go "Photobucket" on us again. It would be nice to have Harry's photos hosted here on the forum. At least then they will last as long as the forum does. I'm never going back to PB. I left my free account alone so all my photos might show up in the old treads, but I'm not uploading anymore there.
  8. 1/12 Tamiya Datsun 240ZG

    They sure are great looking cars. And they run pretty well too.
  9. Future of the hobby

    Well, in my model club it is just the opposite. We have put up a model contest for over 25 years and we had pee-wees and juniors classes. For the last few shows there were no juniors entering that class so this year we decided to get rid of the juniors class. Of course, since we got rid of that class, this year will have half a dozen juniors show up with models for the contest. I actually hope so.
  10. That is basically what the Testors Liquid Cement is (in the glass bottles). The stuff discussed here is a bit thicker - it has some body to it, and it doesn't evaporate as fast. It is like Testors Mixed their Liquid Cement from the glass bottles with some of their old-fashion tube cement.
  11. Good idea - thanks Joe! But at the rate I use it, I'll have some left at the time I die. I'm a CA glue addict.

  13. Reapiring A Pillars.

    So were the bodies of East German Trabants (except they used cotton fibers and resin). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trabant
  14. I also have the one with the stainless steel hypodermic tubing applicator - I bought it about 30 years ago. I think Testors changed the design and now they use a plastic nozzle. There is no seal inside - if no glue comes out when squeezed, it is clogged. I would try using either piece of stiff wire (like K&S 0.020" brass rod) or a small drill but to try to unclog it.
  15. Model car related abbreviation?

    There are many non-modeling-specific abbreviations (like NSFW, YMMV, ROTFLMAO, YOLO, IIRC, IDK, and many others) used when people text each other, in emails, and in online forums. If you want to figure out what any of those mean, just type it into a Google search. The explanation will pop right up.
