  2. I’m guessing that may be the case, Dave. I still haven’t gotten it!
  3. Another week goes by and still nothing. <sigh!>
  4. well, Greg told me I am good until issue 215 so my sub hasn't run out. So I got that working for me, at least! 🤣
  5. yep...don't get it. However, if I right click the page number and select open in another tab, it works.
  6. It's not consistent, Dave and one of the things that is driving me nuts. I did what you said and reloaded this site completely. The first topic I select with multiple pages will work correctly. I can go to all of the pages of that topic with no issues Then I go back to the listing of all topics find another with multiple pages and page 1 loads, but not 2 or 3 or so on...not even next page. Now, here's the kicker...after going back to the listing and finding another topic with multiple pages, when they don't open, I tried right clicking and select "Open Link in New Tab", the page will open in the new tab and then I can select any page. Weird.
  7. I know I’ve seen a chart for the correct diameter size wire depending on scale and application (plug wire, radiator, heater hoses, A/C lines, fuel lines, brake lines and so forth) but I’ll be darned if I can find it anywhere! Anybody here know of one? I’ve grown tired of ordering 2ft or 3ft of various sizes and looking to buy in bulk. Hobby Lobby has a lot of various sized bead wire in smaller diameter but like 10 yards for roughly the same price. So I just want the wire diameter size equivalent for the type of detail I’m trying to replicate. Thanks in advance!
  8. Oh, I get it! When I was reviewing 1/24th scale diecast for a couple of diecast magazines, I acquired nearly 1,500 cars, trucks and other transportation vehicles just from Danbury alone from all years. Some are more memorable than others. When Danbury halted all diecast production, I stepped away and got back to my roots with modeling after 40-45 years out of it. This (modeling) is much more fun.
  9. Danbury actually did a number of pro street cars that were farmed out to car modelers to design (upper shelf, lower shelf is a pewter 1/12th scale Daytona by Franklin Mint). The lot was nothing more than Killer!
  10. Yup! I was going to say the same thing, I reviewed it for a couple of Diecast Magazines 5 or 6 years ago.
  11. The whole thing is beyond great but that interior, looks like a real car!!! Great job!
  12. so I did exactly as you said and Javascript is enabled. When it's enabled, I cant page forward on a topic but I can see pictures. When it is disabled, I can page forward but no pictures. Very strange as if I go to other forums, I have no issues at all, Only here, Raising the white flag
  13. OK, so I disable JavaScript on Firefox and pictures are displayed but I cannot page forward. If I enable JavaScript, I can page forward through a topic but pictures are not displayed. I don't get it.
  14. A little bit more for you, Dave. I opened the main site via Microsoft Edge and proceeded running a couple of tests using Edge. Everything I am experiencing on Firefox does not occur when using the Microsoft Edge browser. So it looks like this is browser related and if I remember correctly, Firefox recently had an upgrade. That is most likely the culprit.
  15. Not always. There are times I come into the forum, go straight to WIP for cars and select topics. I can read the first page of a multi-page topic but going to a secondary page (i.e. page 2, 3 and so on) won't work. No rolling ball of death just simply no response. I can mouse over "NEXT" and a comment comes up for "Next Page" or ">>" and get a comment for "Last Page" but when I select it, nothing happens thoughts?
  16. I noticed that recently, when I go to view the secondary pages of a topic, those pages never open for me. Sometimes, the only thing I can do is to click on "Home" and go through the categories to get back to the topic I was reading. I use Firefox, always have and this is a recent occurrence. This also seems to be the only site it happens on. Any thoughts?
  17. I didn't quite know where to post this so I put it here. For those that get the Motor Trend show on their cable TV, Steve Magnante has a new show called "Super Models" and yes, it's about building model cars. This just blew me away. Finally a show dedicated to our obsessive hobby.
  18. Not trying to hijack the thread but like so many other custom cars, CheZoom was one of those iconic cars that set the bar for custom cars. I used to watch American Hotrod for the builds but in doing so, I lost every ounce of respect I ever had for Boyd Coddington. He was a total jerk to his people and I don't think he ever realized that if it wasn't for his techs, he would never be in the position he once was. I think there was something like an 85% turnover in employee in just a year. As for that puppet of a shop forman, he was nothing more than a Coddington wannabee. Interesting that he couldn't even hold a job after Coddington died. That's one of the reasons that I love "Bitchin Rides" and Overhaulin'. Foose and Dave Kindig really appreciate their people and know how to get the job done without all of the unnecessary stress. It shows in their results too as both churn out some of the nicest custom cars the hobby has ever seen.
  19. looks like what would be the end result of a Corvette having sex with a Bugatti...with the Bugatti having the dominant gene!
  20. I did nearly the same thing as you when I was replicating my brother's Vette... http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/149513-2005-c6-corvette-convertible-revell/?tab=comments#comment-2223569
  21. Absolutely helps! Many thanks! I’ll keep you posted!
  22. yeah, I agree...Going to have to find a way to do it. I don't trust my meager talent blending the front valance, even with it being black paint. One more question regarding the wiring under the hood. you've compelled me to at least try to go to that level of detail. Where did you find insulated wire that small? I'm assuming it's a combination of smaller gauge wire. To stick a boogar in the works, I plan on stuffing a Viper Engine under the hood. Test fitting it tells me it will fit convincingly so (note, image shot prior to removing the molded in battery and washer bottle)...
