  1. Using Elmer's glue

    The search function in the forum software is awful. Look thru the 2nd thread that Casey posted above. It explains how to search the forum, while not logged into the forum. It provides MUCH better results.
  2. Brand new kits!!

    I removed a bunch of posts. Just a reminder to all ---- ALL trades are a risk. You must decide if you are willing to take the risk. If you have problems with your trades, work them out via PM or emails. Go back to the pinned thread at the beginning of this section and read the rules.
  3. Pictures of Sox and Martin 70 cuda?

    Maybe he was referring to the K-member.
  4. '41 Plymouth Coupe

    Just a reminder - Please don't randomly post photos of your builds in another member's WIP thread, unless you are trying to illustrate a particular item, skill or idea that may help the builder.
  5. How about a Bonneville/dry lakes category?

    Some folks would post in the wrong section, even if we only had a single category called "Models" Too many categories would only cause more confusion.
  6. How about a Bonneville/dry lakes category?

    In the past, I have petitioned for a new category called "Other Racing." Nothing ever materialized. I was once told that the categories on the forum roughly follow those of the magazine.
  7. Tamiya paint stands...

    I like the Tamiya paint stands, but have had the same problem. I taped mine together and use it with a lazy-susan while painting, so it still spins.
  8. Stanfding or setting?

    I stand/lean. I have a drafting stool at my bench that I use so I am in between fully standing and sitting at normal chair height.
  9. CA fires Horror

    It will be bad again in the spring, when the mudslides start.
  10. My built kits

    Sorry to see that last photo Brian. I hope everyone got out in time. Stuff can be replaced and wounds heal with time.
  11. Mega Millions.....

    My wife and I are doing something similar to this even if I don't win the lottery. Go to closing next month on a piece of property, so that this will be my view in retirement.
  12. Mega Millions.....

    That is what I told my wife. She said I would just take it as a challenge.
  13. Error message on the forum's site

    I got this yesterday. I logged out and then back in and it went away.
  14. Gary, to answer your question.... you will need to try it for yourself and decide if it works for you. Try it on an old body to see if you like it. It is just another tool for modelers to work with. Some will find it easier than foil, some will not. Some will find it does just as good as foil, some will not. There is no right or wrong answer. I find it is good for touching up sprue attachment points and where I mess up the foil. I am not proficient with either, but both have a place in my toolbox.
  15. Revell 1968 Chevelle

    I am just going to lock this. I am tired of the same arguments and tired of being asked to check out someone's blog.
