  1. What Irked You Today?

    Let them know that their dog barks all day. If that doesn't work, record their dog and play it back LOUD in the middle of the night. When they come over to tell you that your dog barks all night, tell them you don't own a dog it is a recording of what their dog does all day. It will either fix the problem or start a neighbor feud. Keep us posted.
  2. MPC 79 Nova Challange

    I owned a '79 Rally Nova in high school. I may have to get in on this.
  3. How cold is it where you live?

    I currently live in Maryland and it has been in the 50's for much of this past week. Last year I bought some land in Montana so I have been checking the temps there daily. Earlier in the week if was -12°F and the wind chill made it feel like -30°F. I will be retired when I move there, so I won't need to go outside. I will just stare out the window at the landscape.
  4. Beemax BMW M3 E30 RECARO Decal

    Please remember that buying and selling (or offering to buy or sell) is against the forum rules.
  5. 1/32 Aurora

    Me too.
  6. 1/32 Aurora

    Lets keep this focused on the subject of the thread, 1/32 Aurora kits.
  7. Hey administrators! Can we get a new topic!

    Moved to Q&A section and edited title to include compressors. Still pinned at top.
  8. Airbrush compressor

    Yes, that one will work. One thing to consider, that you may not of thought of, is the amount of noise the compressor will generate. A loud compressor that continually runs can quickly drive you out of the room/garage.
  9. Hey administrators! Can we get a new topic!

    The problem is most (not all) folks find it easier to ask same question, that dozens of other folks have asked, than to read a long thread on the subject. Then mods need to either merge it with an existing thread or let it ride. I personally like to have multiple threads (with different titles) as the forum will show up in more searches that way, this is why we don't always merge multiple threads together. We will talk about moving the pinned thread to another topic.
  10. Sketch pads, never knew these existed

    A link at the top of the main landing page for the forum/magazine is hidden?
  11. Ace-Garageguy, so long

    Just to stop all of the speculation. It was not a disagreement with another member. Bill broke a forum rule and was given a warning point. He took exception to it, posted he was leaving and sent the mods some "feisty" messages. I do not think he will be back.
  12. eBay: contest for record highest asking price

    Sometimes....when models (or other items) are priced extremely high on eBay, it is to sell the same thing cheaper (although at a still inflated price) at a show or elsewhere. Most people check places like eBay and Amazon to see what things are "selling for." So if you are selling a $100 model for $500 and someone has it listed on eBay for $3000, you might actually find someone to buy it for $500 because they think they are getting a deal. As has been stated before, this will continue until folks have to pay for fixed price listings. eBay is like gambling anyway. You can list an item for sale for $100 and get no takers. You can start an auction for the same item with an opening bid of $1 and sell it for $300 (you can also end up selling it for $10).
  13. Rebuilding a 1:1

    You have to get lucky (most of the time) when trying to flip cars. I bought a '75 Maverick and a '80 Sunbird for $25 each. The seller said that didn't run and hadn't run in years. Brought a couple charged batteries and a 5 gallon jug of gas. Drove both away and sold them for $200 each the next day. I have owed 20-30 other cars that I lost money on.
  14. Are We Completely Frustrated

    This topic has run it's course. Most of you have been here long enough to know the problems with getting the magazine printed and we all see the same negative comments from the same members. All the long term members here know it is subscribe at your own risk. The new rates do not affect existing subscriptions. If the price is to steep for you, don't purchase a new subscription or renew when your existing subscription comes due. Subscriptions are based on number of issues, not length of time. If you are already paid, you will get the number of issues you paid for, as long as the company stays in business. Locked
