  1. For inserting dynamite? :o

    Don't have dynamite, got a bunch M80s. M80s might take some time.

    Have an old water softener, poorer the salt in the hole in the stump. Really need to rent a stump chipper. Don't want the stump's roots to rot, could spread to the new trees that were just planted to replace the eucalyptus.



    yeah I make you laugh, and I get models built. as in finished built. seems like a rare commodity around here.



    Yes Sir, long be for Nike said it my Father and Mother would look deep into you and say " Just do it " also a Navy phrase.  That is how I got where I am, never say no to job others dislike or won't do. Top trees, dig out septic systems, tan a hide, tare out 40 years of ivy, replace fog lamps on cell and radio towers, ect.  Get the job done, do it right the first time and take pride in your work. I was once known as JD - Jonny dangerous. 

    Also some good Jamaican yardy music helps.


  3. a lot of Blondies material was, if not straight covers, at least highly inspired by others songs. one good example is the song Rapture...the rap lyrics were stolen pretty much directly from the originator of the American rap style, Jamaican immigrant DJ Kool Herc, who they befriended and then more or less ripped off.


    the second wave/two tone ska movement of the eighties would not have happened without Prince Buster. not only was Madness named after one of his songs, but the (English) Beat and particularly the Specials AKA relied heavily on his songs, in spirit as well as actually covering them                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

    Wake the town and tell the people, 'bout this musical Knowledge coming your way!   

    YES as an Eighties Ska bassist, Prince buster was the sound I tried for.


    JB we know that the Q is relative, A hit to WHO or on what countries chart ( that, which populous didn't know were covers)  WE could play -Hit Jamaican songs that are actually covers (that nobody knows are covers);)

    And yes  Sir Paul did a cover in 85 I think


  4. So is this a Thomas The Tank forum now?? Just wondering.... 

    I'm sure this should be under "all the rest".  I belive it will get the most attention here and receive the most help. As it's Missusedamame first and second post I'd hope we all could be a little understanding. I'm sure that when a MOD reads it, they will move it if they want to.

  5. A friends kid is into Thomas as well. Asked him if I could look at them. He pulled them all out for me. The Gordon I looked over had 4 philips head screws, if removed it there are small parts ready to spill all over. (again take pics) It was at the point that the children watching became concerned, so I put Gordon back together. From what I have seen the toy has some nice strait lines and if you only want to redo the body you could, tape off wheel area and the start lever at the top, spray primer and paint then detail as wanted. I use krylon or rustoleum, paint and primer in ONE! 

    My mother used to do things like this for us, I learned so much watching her. She always told us to respect thing for what they are and to see thing for all that they can be.


  6. Cobraman are all 650 Car? or do you have the matchbox Big Bull Bulldozer? It says that it has a Cobra engine, really, says so on the valve covers. Im sure there are nicer ones out there but this was given to me years ago and it was played with hard. best pic I have of it, sure it comes up if googled
