    Purple Power?
    Hi everyone,I got some new Purple Power at Advance and put some straight in a plastic container.
    I put in some parts to strip,a Vette body,interior,hood. They were all primed with Tamiya fine and shot with Tamiya red and Testors Beige.
    After leaving it overnight,the interior is coming off but the red is stuck fast and not coming off at all.
    Any ideas??

    Thanks for the link Bill. I just feel you should always be able to send it Ground, not Priority.

    Post office scam!!!
    Hi all, I am so upset at the Post office!!! I went to mail a matted painting. The package was about 28" X28" X2".
    At first he said it would be $15,which was OK.When he put in the dimensions he said it caused it to go Priority and there was a
    Balloon surcharge. I had no choice for ground and no surcharge. He said it would not let him send it Ground.
    What a RIPOFF!!!!!

    Amy, I think Matt conveys my thoughts also. Harry will be missed by a great many people. From modelers here in the US,to many abroad.

    Hi All, I was wondering what you think the commission should be for selling a $400.Item for a friend
    After fees and shipping there is about $332 left.He said he was OK for whatever he gets.
    He said it is strictly a business deal,and he is a tight friend.
    Thanks for any help,

    I am indeed very sorry to hear this.I only knew Harry through the forum,but I felt that he was a great friend.He will be missed by a lot of people that he knew and a lot he didn't know but that were touched by him.
    Now,he is without the pain and troubles with other burdens.
    I hope he has enough models,now he has enough time to do them.
    I hope we can celebrate his life and all the great things he did for so many of us,not to mention his unbelievable builds of the models he was so passionate about!!
  10. gbdolfans added a post in a topic Would you be interested in building and donated a model to a tourist attraction that has been in a US for over 80 years?   

    Hi Vinnie, that is so great looking!!! Where do you get the drivers you mentioned? Do you have a link?
    I have several built kits that I might be willing to donate.They are complete with finished chassis.Is that OK for you?

    info on Superbird kits?
    Hi I am wanting to know if there is a difference between the Monogran kit,molded in blue from the early to mid 90's and the more recent Revell Streetburner one.they are the same scale  and the same 440 engine with the 6BBl carbs.

    Ideas for wife to sell her nature pics???
    Hi all, I am looking for sites or ideas for my wife to maybe sell her pictures.She is very passionate about nature and her flowers.
    There are many great photographers here and thought this would be a good place to ask.
    We use a Coolpix S6100 with 16 Megapixels.She has had many people say her pics are beautiful.
    Any help and links would be greatly appreciated.

  15. gbdolfans added a post in a topic If you could only build one more model kit, what would it be?   

    I would pick the 1/16 scale Garlits,dragster in full detail. It would take me probably 20 years at my skill level.
    As to why, I love the Diggers,met him many times at Miami Hollywood Speedway in the 60's and 70's.
    And I know I would still be around that long. Although, with my back pain,maybe not so sure.
