  1. Desert Scale Classic XV - April 13

    Looking forward to the DSC, a great gathering and event! Cheers Misha
  2. They shoot horses, don't they?

    Another thought is to use a trick from the armour modellers and use kleenex tissue, cut to size and slightly soaked in a white glue and water mixture to drape over the piece. You can form it around the tranny to fit and pinch in the belt areas with thread (maybe fit belts made from masking tape now as well). Let it dry to a hard finish, usually a day. Plus it's easy to do another one if the first one is a flub. Cheers Misha
  3. Best Way to Store Molotow Pens?

    I tend to store metallic sharpies and the such lying down flat, for the other colours I store tip down. So far so 😊 good! Cheers Misha
  4. Welcome aboard Bill! Sure you'll find a great community here. I moved out to Victoria in the early 80's and for the first six winters it was snow free, things have certainly changed over time. About fifteen years ago started wintering in Arizona, and here it has begun being relatively cold too. Past week the night time low temps have been chillier than the Cowichan Valley. Looking forward to seeing your work, what are your favoured areas? Also keep in mind the local club, SPAM, Scale Plastic Auto Modellers, a number of members are quite active in the forum here. Cheers Misha
  5. Compressor recommendations

    After many years of using various compressors I would recommend the Iwata studio model if one is serious about airbrushing. It is very quiet, thankfully and has two lines running off of it, complete with seperate regulators and moisture traps. It is a bit more money yet very worthwhile. I would definitely stay away from the small hobby compressors, the ones without a holding tank, as the airstream pulsates from the compressor itself. With a tank that problem is eliminated. I've had my current one for six years and it has been trouble free and very quiet, so one can use it in an apartment or in the middle of the night for us insomniacs without disturbing anyone. Cheers Misha
  6. That's a great build Pat! I also followed along on your WIP and the additions to the hoist are bang on. Plus the other details you've included make this a model that bears closer examination. Features like the clearence lights, booster battery and the VRRRMMM plate add to the enjoyment of viewing your work. Congrats Misha
  7. AMT '32 Coupe - a basic street rod

    Beautiful job Manuel! Looks perfect for an early show rod, somewhat beyond basic with the great paint job, the padded roof insert, tucks and rolls in the wheel well.... so much to enjoy! Congrats on a great rod! Misha
  8. RRR Year in Review...

    Rockin' Rodney, I've enjoyed all your builds, comments and involvement with the forum. You have been an inspiration to many and a fountain of gearhead knowledge. Thanks for all of that, it is much appreciated! Cheers, best wishes and looking forward to 2018. Misha
  9. Posting photos to the forum

    Thanks, I'll give that a try. Cheers Misha
  10. Posting photos to the forum

    Hi having trouble for the first time posting a photo from my iPad library. I believe that this is the first time I have attempted to do this since the upgrde to the Forum. In the past I've clicked on the paperclip "Click to choose files" and a window appears with the images and I choose which one I want to use. It still does that, yet as it finishes uploading another window appears saying a problem has occured, unable to load. Am I missing something? It's frustrating as it has worked seamlessly before and I don't use any of the services such as Fokti etc. Misha
  11. Ferrari LaFerrari

    That's a real winner John! The blue is perfect fit, and so much greater impact than the red. Plus your photos make it hard to believe it's a scale model, it appears to be parked in front of your place. Bravo & Congrats! Misha
  12. AMT 1962 Pontiac Catalina

    Congrats on a stunning paint job! Really fits the Poncho. Cheers Misha
  13. Memorial build #1, Chaparral 2D Daytona

    Your added details have really made the basic kit come alive. The skills displayed by your build indicate that you are beyond a "newbie", your friend would have been very pleased by the workmanship! Congrats and cheers, Misha
  14. Long time no see guys!

    Welcome to Canada! Wishing you great success in your studies at Brock (anytime for building?) See if there are any model clubs in the area, the local hobby shop may be able to help. Cheers Misha
  15. I just had a note in my mailbox from a newly joined member, so curious if others might have gotten the greeting. Here's a screen shot from moments ago....
