  1. Hmmm...an interesting idea but I usually save good length of sprues for stretching sprues for various reasons .... rigging wire for ship kits, attenna wires for aircrafts, paint stirrers, etc....
  2. Yes. Those will work just fine!
  3. Ladder bar types for gasser racers
  4. Not an irk from me but my son. He currently has an internship with the NYDOT as inspector on a striping crew. An accident involved 2 SUVs caused by another driver who cut in front of the first car getting on the exit; causing her to break hard and get rear ended by another vehicle behind her. The reckless driver who was in a hurry didn’t bother to stop or oblivious that he/she caused the accident. All this happened in a work zone with signs everywhere. Some folks have zero regards in slowing down in work zones. Always in a hurry for what?
  5. Looking for a pair of traction bars for a gasser I’m building.
  6. Thrift stores, antique stores, consignment shops, garage sales are good places to find kits... IF you get lucky. Great find indeed.
  7. Ain’t that the truth. Not model car related but I’d love to get the recent 1/32 scale HKM Lancaster bomber kit. This kit is a beast with at least a 4 foot wingspan when completed. Not to mention finding a spot to display it when completed. https://www.scalehobbyist.com/catagories/Model_Aircraft/lancaster-mk-i-s-sugar/HKM00001E10/product.php?s=0&t=0&u=2&micr=194&pg=1&ppp=48&sb=stocknumber_a&so=d&era=0,6 Even at $300 is expensive for my budget.
  8. Nobody wants to work anymore. They’re getting paid more from collecting unemployment than their actual paycheck when they were working. I see panhandlers everyday. With the time they spend getting handouts, they could have spent that time job hunting. Everybody is always looking for help. Minimum wage is $15/hour, some places are higher. So what’s the problem? Everybody is lazy is what’s the problem nowadays.
  9. Yup. Those are spams. I get them all the time. Even from Norton and McAffee sending me warnings my subscription has expired and your computer may be at risk, blah, blah, blah.... Baloney! I know when my subscription expires and I had just renewed it back in April of this year.
  10. Rat Fink and Weirdos.... classics. Those are really cool to see. Thanks for sharing.
  11. Looks similar to the old Smithsonian engine kit of years past. However, there is one cheaper. I found it on Pinterest. Heres the link to the working engine kit. A great price too. https://www.venbrew.com/products/🔥last-day-discount🔥-teaching-v8-mechanical-metal-diy-assembly-full-metal-car-engine-model?scm=spz.search&ssp=spz&spm=..search.search_1.1&pp=0&epik=dj0yJnU9a0JhSVV6UFNqNExjWUlVRFNqVzlyd3Jwalp5TEs3cmsmcD0xJm49TzNURmNvS2Z0WHZIZkFnamFudHh0USZ0PUFBQUFBR0t6djlj
  12. Exactly. I refuse to invest my hard earned salary on an EV and I’ve already stated my reasons.
  13. Speaking of which... look what Scalehobbyist has out: https://www.scalehobbyist.com/catagories/Model_Cars/ford-c600-us-mail-truck-w-usps-trailer/AMT00001326/product.php?s=0&pg=1&ppp=48&sb=stocknumber_a&so=d&pr=1
  14. I finally saw the Rivian in my area. I gotta tell you.... it’s ugly as..... hmmm.... Fugly is a better word to describe it. The LED headlights on them are annoying as **** and enough to blind you - even in daylight. The headlights is basically a circle outline shape, not like typical headlights on cars today. I can’t imagine the cost in replacing those should one go out.
  15. Those are cool! Reminds me of the pre- Tom Daniels Design craze.
  16. Hmmm....I don’t recall ever seeing a USPS Pinto growing up in the 70s. We had those dinky little jeeps with steering wheel on the right side delivering mail in our area. LOL!
  17. If it’s styrene, who cares? The old Monogram bomber kits were 1/72 and those are massive built up. I’ve done the B-52 and the B-36 as a kid. I am hoping to see the recent 1/48 scale Lancaster kit by HK Models at Syrcon someday. Seen one for sale at Syrcon last year and who knows if someone bought it yet. That’s a big bird in her own right.
  18. Go on YouTube and do a search : just rolled in Its a collection of customers bringing in cars of various problems...
  19. ROFL! The employees didn’t notice the glitch for 3 hours..... God Bless America! LOLOLOLOLOL!
  20. I am 100% in agreement. Those in areas that get snow and cold during winter months and no garage are a bad fit in owning an EV.
  21. If you can afford one and pay for the upkeep and service. All these EV coming out comes with a price - a very high sticker price. Who’s to say the average person will and can afford to buy them? Not very many. What then? Sure, it’s going to be a total nightmare owning EV automobiles. Charging times, availability of charging stations, getting stranded after running out of charge, repair bills including battery replacements (get ready to put out another mortgage to pay for it), having charging stations installed in your own home (imagine your electric bill and if your house has amperage to handle charging your EV), dependability of EV starting in cold weather climates during winter months, etc... So many issues that these green deal zealot folks pushing for electric vehicles often overlook and refuse to look at the negative side of owning such POS electric automobiles. Whats next? Banning gas powered lawn equipment? Rider and regular lawnmowers, weed trimmers, hedge trimmers, chain saws, etc... Even those electric lawn equipment are useless as watching a second coat of paint dry.
