The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.
First, but not most importantly, beautiful finish on the Nova Luis. It reminds me of root beer candy. Num. And now, to life. I feel you man. I lost both of my parents to lymphoma. At the far too young age of 64, I feel daily like a ticking time bomb. But if this nasty affliction can claim a baby, we got no room to complain. Fight, Fight, Fight!!!!!
Since I hate bugging people for info I can search on the GoogleNet, when I spotted the bottle of Gauzy, I said to myself, "Self, what the heck is that stuff?" I then performed the aforementioned GoogleWeb search and found the website for AK Interactive. I then bookmarked them for future possible purchases. Unfortunately, it spawned questions I can't do a GoogleSearchie Thing on. Are they the company you use? If so, how are their products and service? Also, do you always use it or is it to help a finish you're not totally thrilled with? Beautiful work Luis. Thanx for sharing.
Stop me if you've heard this before. "That's my new favorite Southside Johnny creation!!!!!" We need to bottle whatever it is you've got Bro 'cuz that's worth zillions. I would have settled for donating a fuel cap. Amazing my friend.
Yeah well, that's out the window. First I was floored when I saw the base paint. When I recovered from that, you punched me with the decals. Then I got a left hook with the pilot figure. Now you know why I donated the figure. Most outstanding models are fine on their own. This one needed to be honored by Gary's presence. I'm glad he's standing as opposed to being in the seat, hidden when the body is down. You and his daughter should be proud Bro.
Let me get this straight. You think final assembly will be a challenge? Tim, we've seen how you approach challenges. You kill challenges dead. Ugggghhhhh, challenge dead. Tim murderized it. NEXT !!!!!!!
Ray, I know the answer to that question and the answer will blow you away. However, I won't steal Mr. Southside's thunder. It's actually more of a "whoosh / pop" than thunder. If you change your mind about planning The Model Car Heist Of The Century, I've got about a 5 year head start on the planning. My recommendation? Don't use Minions. They tend to go off-script.
As always My Bro, you keep raising the bar. It's an honor to watch it happen.
If you say it's a fuel pump, I'll have to take your word for it. Looks more to me like an Evil Genius starting the construction of a nuclear power plant. I think it looks (insert adjective of your own choosing here) Tim.
Only the single worst after market experience of my 64 years on this planet. I put in a major order of bodies and parts. After giving him EVERY break in the world, I ended up with less than half of my order over an 8 month period. Insult to injury, they were the worst resin parts I've ever seen. Major flash, giant air bubbles and the worst soft / lack of detail. To sum it up, if you order from him, you'll get exactly what you deserve.
Among all of the incredible details in this update, what strikes me most are the front tires. I know tires after 30 years in the business. THAT is what normal tire wear looks like. Not simply sanding down the tread. Wear that thing out to give it age.
Randy, Don, Paul, Robert; Thanx a lot you guys. Paul, thankfully mine isn't nutz, but there is definitely some type of brain abnormality going on. I'm kidding of course. However, my niece came over to see him and fell in love, so I gave him to her. Honestly, he was more of a time vampire, (because I was paying too much attention to him) and it also taught me that it was not the solution to my issues. At any rate, he has a new home with more people and a couple new doggie type friends. He's loving life. I hope to get back at it shortly once I get some supplies I need. Thanks for checking in y'all.
