      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    You're close.  Connecticut.
    It's a '46 - purchased new by Cheshire, CT Volunteer Fire Dept.  They ran it until around 1977, then donated it to the Hall of Flame Museum of Firefighting.  Yes, it's a long way from home!
    Actually, we have a lot of 'Back East' apparatus Charlie.
    We just got a new rig ~ and the newest in our collection.  FDNY Rescue 4.  A 1996 Saulsbury, it has been fully restored from damages sustained on its last alarm - it was a first-in at the World Trade Center on 9-11-2001.  
    We had a dedication and unveiling ceremony yesterday to introduce it. 
    BTW - A mutual friend of ours, Tim Bongard, and I had a great time at the reception . . . and exploring both the public galleries and the closed-to-the-public storage warehouse where we keep apparatus during restoration and restored rigs taking a break from public display.  As Tim said, 'So many rigs, so many projects!'

    Charlie ~ 
    I have a "before" pic . . .
    Actually, this is truly a 1:1, not another Charlie Rowley scale creation.  I had forgotten we have this one stashed in our storage building at the National Hall of Flame Museum.   
    You can see how well the Maxim people predicted the beauty of Charlie's model, some 63 years before he built it! 

  3. Danno added a post in a topic As Requested: My Resin Graveyard - yikes!   

    I call your five stars and raise them:  Greg's a 6-star caster in  my book! 
    I have many examples of Greg's resin artistry.  Everything he has done is top-notch! 
    Of course, my favorite is the Cosma Ray.  I have accumulated several of those and have plans to replicate each iteration of the 'Ray . . . except that horrid George Barris abomination.

    That's just ONE reason Consumer Reports is on my 'magazines to avoid' list!

    Mine said I was expired.  
    I didn't know.  [Rimshot.] 
    Issue #203 was great!!!    Good job, Gregg and Darryl!

    Very sorry to hear of Miguel's passing.  Met him a couple of times; he was a talented modeler with a big smile, huge heart, and great personality.  He made himself your friend at first encounter.
    He'll be missed.  RIP, my friend.
