  1. Thanks to you to 68shortfleet, the Air Skooled kit is already on my work desk. Great trade! Hope you got what you needed and more.

    68shortfleet is an excellent person to trade with,  great communication, everything was well packed, showed up on time. And His an awesome guy. Hope to do more trade with him.


  2. Just a quick model cause I've had trouble sleeping for awhile now. 

    So that others could sleep even if I cant, I opened up wade a minut. With two in the box I needed a alt to race starter.  I'll do the race starter Wade a minut when I'm thinking clearly.  without a plan I started in on him, sanding, gluing, filling holes, even found a spot out of the pouring rain to get him primed.

    While standing in the rain at 0300, my neighbors got up and started packing their truck and boat. As they left, they stopped at their front door and grabbed two cases of Rolling Rock. One guy looked at me standing alone in the dark in the pouring rain and asked if I was OK, then handed me a beer.  I said thanks as they left. You see I don't drink any more, but this gave me an idea for Wade. Wade is going fishing!

    With the weather the way it is in CA right now, rattle cans are out of the question and I have yet to get into airbrush. Painting by hand was the way to go.
    No, I have never hand painted a whole model. I have painted houses. How hard could it be? ;)
    Turned out to be fun and I learned alot.

    The guys had on matching hats, white shirts, fishing vests, blue jeans on with big leather boots.
    I used the Wierd-ohs Davey base and sign.

    And I used the sticker from the neck of the Rolling Rock on the back of Wade's vest. And made beer bread from the beer. Everyone likes to wake up to the smell of baking bread.

    Beer bread

    3 cups flour
    3 Tablespoons sugar
    2 Tablespoons baking powder
    2 teaspoons salt
    1 - 12oz beer,  any 12oz beer you choose.

    Mix ingredients together.
    put into greased loaf pan. (got mine at the dollar store)
    bake at 375 deg. for 45-50 min. 

    So easy and make the house smell great.

     

     

     

  3. Just a wee bit of flooding in California's Eel river delta.

    Pic from the CDF spotter plane. the river should be only on the right between the 2 brown berms. The rest of that pic should be the Victorian town of Ferndale.

    And here is the Ferndale elementary school bus failing to ford Dillion road.

    Wet and muddy, with lots more to come.


  4. So today I get a call that a long time friend was killed in a headon collision today. The other car went left of center. 

    I'm sorry about all the loss you have had over the last two months. It's never easy to lose people we care for.

    However if you remember them and talk to others about them, they are never truly gone.


  5. I too think is one of the ugliest Ferrari ever made. I robbed it of the engine and the engine mounts. threw the rest back in the box.  If you find you need an extra piece let me know.

  6. I have to ask; can this kit be built stock? If so, I'll need to add it to my growing "wants" list.

    Kevin - It can be built stock, I think it looks better that way.

    Sam this is an awesome kit, just finishing mine today. I, like others found the dash to be tricky but not impossible. This kit is prefect for the addition of plug and bat wires, add a lot to this already awesome kit.
