      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.

    HRM's gt40 engine and chassis kit
    Do any of you guys know if this fits only the MKI versions?  I was wondering if it could also be used to convert a MKII kit to the MKI, not much of a sports car guy but have always admired the gt40 and want to build one.  Also there was an article in something that gave a pretty detailed description of using the HRM stuff does anyone remember where it appeared.  Thanks for any and all help.

    Injector manifold for SOHC Ford
    Do any of you know of an injector manifold for the SOHC found in the willys kits.  Kit sourced or resin are both ok. Guess if one is not out there I will have to scratch build one.  Thanks in advance for your replies.

  7. twopaws added a post in a topic Another BMF question   

    Had this problem earlier in the year, called BMF and was told that it is a glue application problem.  He replaced the three sheets I had purchased from them and the replacements are ok.  No matter how or how much you burnish that alligator finish will not dissappear.  Craig

    For a good reference Google Bob Lambeck's 1957 Jr. Stocker, one of the best in it's day.  One of his 57's was a 150 with FI and a four speed, I built a replica of that car.  Craig

    1969 Chevelle convert wheel well trim
    I'm looking for suggestions on how to recreate the chrome wheel well trim on this model.  I am already aware of removing the trim left over from the 68 and the vent windows.  But want to recreate a proper look for this kit.

    Recent BMF quality question
    Bought two sheets from local hobby shop that has a good turnover of products,  they each contained miniscule, almost microscopic lines.  I called Randy at BMF and was told the roller appling the glue caused this.  I ordered three sheet direct from them, they arrived and each had the same texture issues.  When applied to a model, no amount of burnishing will remove these fine lines, the surface now has the texture of 1/25th alligator skin. They are all over the sheet, not like the big wrinkles I have seen before.  Anybody else having this issue?

    I too use the old spoon test, besides providing a great couple of surfaces, you can also write the combos you are trying on the handle.

    Some of the calipers we sell at Grainger, have a decimal to fractional conversion listing on the back.  Some but not all.

    Hey modelers any tips on painting the hubcap centers on the new Tamiya Mercedes 300SL.
    The center of the chrome cap is to be body color with the iconic Merc. emblem still chrome. They offer decals for the emblem but would like to save the actual chrome one. Thanks for looking.
