    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 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.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

    Yeah, it becomes tricky when the LHS' I will support are a good bit further away that the HL or Michael's are.  I no longer support the one I used to work for, which is closer than the craft stores are, soooooo....................

    Just weight myself again today, down another 10lbs from 11/10/17, 35lbs total since August.

    Not sure, I finally picked one up at a normal LHS today, may have to get more at HL when I get the time and money.

    I had been thinking Tamiya, Model Master, ot Testors lacquers too, the compatability possibilities do kinda scare me though.

    I was going to try Future, but couldn't figure out what it looked like and it appeared as though the HyVee I was in didn't carry it.

    AMT ProShop PrePaint Compatability
    I picked one up one of the '62 Catalina customs last night and plan on leaving it in the box stock White Pearl panels over Metallic Red base, but it needs a really good, shiny clear to make it pop, any recommendations as to what the stock paint might be compatable with?  Not like it hasn't had time to gas out and should be very well cured by this point.

    Those never were, in any form.

    Unfortunetly that kind of wheel and tire combo like what's on that SuperDuty is one of the newer trends.  Then in some areas, they build the trucks with less lift in the back than the front so that it looks like it's got a full load and sagging under the weight, to me it looks stupid (my Cherokee has airshocks to keep it from looking that way since they tend to sag on their own), but what do I know.

    Well, had a Dr's appointment before work this morning and swelling in and wound on my leg is improving, plus I'm down 25lbs from my heaviest!

    I checked the Dekalb HL and my Dad and Sister checked the Dekalb Michaels today, negatory on both of those places, but Brian's Hobby also on Rt 23 in Dekalb has a few. Don't have the money for one at full price right now (did pick up those AMT L60's though!), so I'll probably go back next weekend for one.

    Same here, I've used them on lexan R/C bodies for years, especially after Testors stupidly pulled the Pactra paint line for a while.  When I was still with HobbyTown, we sold a decent amount of those paints for the Pinwood Derby kids too.
  14. Joe Handley added a post in a topic 1/25 AMT George Barris' Fireball 500   

    I like that paint job alot more than the Barris movie car paint.  Was there any special trimming needed to get the Duster chassis to fit?

    Wow, that is a rare sight!
