      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 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.

    "Lets not go through all of this again."  well then people really shoiuld not rum thier mouth about me here then
     
    "Paul you were not mentioned by name," maybe not but we all know who he was talking about 
    " It is well known that a lot of folks do not like the fact that you take rarer kits and piece them out. " define a lot.  i have a lot of happy buyers, repeat buyers who actually appreciate being able to get the old vtg htf parts they need. even a few on this board have bought from me more the once
     
    "There is nothing wrong disagreeing with you" there is when people run thier entitlement issues mouths about me on a model car board trying to get people to not buy from me.
     
    "and there is nothing wrong with how you run your business." thats correct  but for some cheapo want everything cheap people it is
     
    "Nobody said anything bad in these posts"  1 person did  just by saying what he said he is trying to harm my business
     
    . "You do not have to come here and write pages of comments defending yourself every time you feel slighted." well i should not have to i still do feel the need to defend myself when people talk smack about me. i am not 1 of those bendover people
     
    "You obviously know you are not the most liked person in the hobby" only a certain segment of tighwad cheap broke people but not everyone does, some people have $$$ and are willing to spend it and those buyers are who i cater too. i let all the cheap price $ losing sellers cater to the cheap buyers
     
    "as you seem to search for yourself or keywords on the forums" not really i look at threads that interest me
    " almost like you are looking for confrontation."  no not looking for confrontations at all but i wish people would just shut thier pie holes up about me
     
    "Your business practices are your own concern and I do wish that folks here would stop complaining about them." ME TOO !!!!! unless they walk a mile in my shoes and pay all my bills
     
    "All they have to do is not buy from you and move on." really thats what they should do but some people just cant help themselves
     
      "You continually commenting on every single post only makes things worse for both sides." maybe but still i will defend myself no matter who it is
    all the people who do not like me just get over it i have not changed how i do business or lowered my prices after all the years that some people here have talked about me or my customers.  the day i die i will stop how i sell on ebay

    "There is a bed for the 69 chev c10 that the guy is asking 35 dollars plus for and no way will i put profits in his pocket for that bed when i can find it elsewhere for more reasonable" LOL  go find one somewhere then. there only been only 1 listed on ebay since sep. and most likely you will not find one anywhere else either gsonruamfcbfd

    "Dont buy parted out kits from the guy trying to make a buck when you can still get the complete kit for about an extra buck in most cases (Y'all know whom im talking about?)"   lol just cannot help yourself huh ?
    There is a bed for the 69 chev c10 that the guy is asking 35 dollars plus for and no way will i put profits in his pocket for that bed when i can find it elsewhere for more reasonable.... Or he parted out a 78 c10 original 2wd kit minus the 2wd front suspension trying to make a few bucks... ugh i cant stand him
     lol like we do not know who you are talking about . maybe i cannot stand certain people begrudging someone making a few bucks.  maybe if you PAID good $$$ to list  9000+ items on ebay you would understand a little better that you cannot sell stuff for bottom feeder lowball el cheapo make a penny scream for mercy $$$ losing prices that certain people feel they are entitled to pay.
  4. pjtoys added a post in a topic My own 3x6 ft garage diorama 1st place IMPS 1996   

    there is probably over 1000 items in that are scratchbuilt, probably well over 2000 hand tools filling up toolboxes n lying around scattered 
    if you could even buy all the other stuff that was not scratchbuilt today thats in it it would cost you a good guess estimate of $10,000. there is a lot of diorama items in it that is no longer available to buy at any price
     
    in the office there is a tiny scotch tape dispenser with real tape on it. i made my own roll of 1:25 scale tape. at a contest i would sometimes show people that little cool touch. 1 time unknown to me i showed a person who happen to be a judge that i could actually pull tape off. later after the contest he told me he loved that tape dispenser so much that for him made him pick my diorama for best detail not too mention all the other cool details. like dog poop etc
     
    i have been on tv twice with it, i have been paid to put it on display more then once. 
    when i called the museum to ask about displaying there after i told them the size and how many awards it won they said sure bring it over sight unseen
     
    met couple playboy models who was really grooving on it at a car show it was on display at . the car show promotor actually brang them over to me because they liked it so much and wanted to ask me ?'s about it needless to say  i really enjoyed that lol who knew that any playboy model would like it that much

    yes i still own it . it is on display at don garlits drag racing museum.
     
    yep it sure was big enough to present some difficulty in transporting around the country. i made a false floor to slide it in to in bed of my truck
