      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

    Thanks for the shots John. Great detail on technology I understand and enjoy to recreate in scale.
    Cheers Misha
    oh... Added thought, thread may belong in the 1:1 reference shots?
  2. Misha added a post in a topic AMT '49 Ford 'Gasman"   

    Just happened to pick up this repop today, thanks for the original review John. Looking closely at the blower belt arrangement, I would venture it is a multi belt, stepped down set up, somewhat like on the "Grasshopper T". This is a particularly welcome part as I wasn't able to recall what kit had it. The tire combination is very sweet, especially the black Firestone lettering on the wide whitewalls, and the decal sheet is very welcome too. Must admit that the box is very striking and especially appealing to me.
     The one aspect that did surprise me is the amount of flash on the kit, as most recent repops have been very good with cleaned up molds. This is an old kit though, nearly as old as me 😃! The custom front belly pan and grill surround will also require a certain amount of massaging to get it all in place. 
    Nonetheless, a welcome addition to our shelves!
    Cheers Misha

    This version, the R/M, has an excellant rendition of the 409W engine - perhaps the best going. The theme for the Vancouver show this March is Cars from Rock and Roll tunes, so using the 409 from this kit and the 30 Coupe along with my old Beach Boys 45 record as background, I'm hoping to get it done! 
    Be following your build Mike with great intetest, especially the drive train. If building the 61 Bubble Top (yes, its a Lindberg) I would swap out the engine for the R/M version.
    Cheers Misha

    Be following your build John with great interest! Great project for the museum.
    Cheers Misha
  5. Misha added a post in a topic '25 Chopped Coupe - Street Rod   

    Be following your build Brad, looking mighty good! This has always been a little gem of a body and it's great to have both the regular and chopped versions available in white plastic. I have both on the go as WIPs, the chopped version is riding on the DD altered chassis and the tall coupe on the newer Ala Kart fender and frame parts. Great to see these coming back in favour. (Unsure if I'll make it to DSC this spring, hope to...)
    Cheers Misha

    One Wheel Mockup....

  7. Misha added a post in a topic Chopped Phaeton   

    An update on the project:
    Been laid low past couple of weeks with a nasty cold/flu, so the shop has been rather quiet. Finished polishing out the Red Mica body colour and now planning out the body details including gold pinstriping. The chassis is getting closer to rolling, discs on all four corners, scratch built rear shocks & tranny oil cooler, and the tires just need the whitewalls. 
    Still a way to go, yet on track to complete for the March show on the mainland in Vancouver. Be posting some snapshots in a few days. The rush will be to complete the 409 motivated A Bone Coupe that's following on, have it planned out and most of the bits have been cleaned up and ready for primer. 
    Thanks for checking, Cheers Misha
  8. Misha added a post in a topic 1957 Ford Del Rio Ranch Wagon - mild custom   

    Beautiful build Ludwig, the colour choice fits so well plus the excellant paint job places your wagon into the top ranks! The chrome is amazing, did you use BMF on the side trim and windows?
    Cheers Misha
  9. Misha added a post in a topic Learning to speak Canadian...   

    Just getting back to the origin of this thread for a moment, my first language is Russsian and back in the late 50s I began school and learned "Canadian" although with a Slavic accent that followed me thru to grade ten when it disappeared. To this day I'm unable to duplicate my previous accent. Thru the years, speaking the language, it became very difficult to define a "Canadian accent".
    Two years ago my friend and I spent three months in Croatia, touring along the Adriatic Coast. I was able to use my Russian quite consistently and it was just the two of us speaking "Canadian", rarely hearing English of any type. Having a wonderous meal in Korcula one day, we heard melodic tones being spoken at a nearby table, it was English yet it sounded so familiar and yes unique! Introducing ourselves to the group of young women it turned out that they were from Vancouver, and yes, there is such a thing as a Canadian accent! Eh!

  10. Misha added a post in a topic Resin Realm... Closing up Shop...!!!   

    Thanks for the heads up Richard! Had a look a their offerings and plan on getting an order in quick. The various Ford wagons are very cool and would make for great support vehicles for vintage drags.
    Cheers Misha

    Vancouver Island is truely the best part of Canada with breathtaking scenery and endless recreational opportunities, skiing in Strathcona Park to surfing at Tofino. The Cowichan Valley, my home, is a culinary heaven with local produce and irresistible seafood. The tough part is keeping it all a secret! 
    Cheers Misha

    Really like the direction you're heading in John. The Vicky looks good with the chopped top and the stance on the chassis, with the open top and cockpit in the rear makes it look very quick! Be following your build for sure, it'll be a great addition to your stable of vintage drag machines.
    Cheers Misha

  15. Misha added a post in a topic Auto World 1961 License Plates   

    Great to see that again! I'm an old fart and recall how thrilling it was to get the customs card in the mail informing me that an Auto World package was waiting for me to pick up. Perusing the annual catalog was a thrill as much of the items were unavailabel in Canada inspite of having three great hobby shops in town. The sheet of plates was a good example. Somewhere I'm sure I still have one...
    Thanks for the memory! 
    Cheers Misha
