      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    resin casting question....
    been talking with a g-scale railroader over past couple days and hit on an idea.......we were discussing how to 'populate' his outdoor layout with die cast modern vehicles that arent all sports cars or exotics, yet usa market....i told him use plastic kits....not very durable outdoors tho...

    we spoke of maybe solid casting some kit offerings as a possibility...my question is, what is the negatives[besides cost of resin]to do this??i have done resin in past, but with 1/87 scale solid cast with out any problems, just curious about 1/24 scale possibly not curing all the way through...
    and would it be feasible to cast 1/24 scale in another medium such as hydrocal[would it take a durable paint like automotive laquers and such?any feedback would be greatly appreciated...
