      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

    Chris in Wilkes, NC
    Been building for over 40 years with some 2-3 years breaks, and this is a return from such. I have recently resubscribed to MCM and Scalauto. Really like to attend swap meets and shows. I enjoy scaling and scratch building diorama parts. Possibly interested in finding a local club.Looking forward to seeing some builds!

    [url=http://public.fotki.com/Builderman/my-most-recent-build/]I'>http://public.fotki.com/Builderman/my-most-recent-build/]I have learned a couple of things. 1- that people here will help if you ask, and 2-don't drink alcohol and post. I hope there are no hard feelings. Maybe I am getting the hang of "FOTKI", maybe not. we will see.http://public.fotki.com/Builderman/my-most-recent-build/

    Well, no luck so far. url="http://public.fotki.com/Builderman/my-most-recent-build/

    BTW, I work 72+ hours a week as a toolmaker, I don't get to play on the internet all day.

    hard to use this site
    I go to the "other" site and get around just fine. What gives here? Will I ever come back? This would be in my "blog", but I cannot figure out how to work that, either. I can't upload pics here, I have tried and tried and tried and tried and tried and tried and tried, and I have had about enough. If I can't get help. I will not use this site. That means the "other" site will get my attention. I prefer your magazine to the other one. But I need a response, I need HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Where do I get Help?
    How does this work? Who do I ask?? This is why I rarely use this site. I cannot get help, I cannot get info. I would be here every day if I knew how to upload a pic. The help pages are no help. I need laymans answers. I build, I do not use the computer all day every day. Any help would be appreciated.

    I would like that too. I must be doing something wrong. I am still somewhat computer illiterate. Could I get a helpful hint? I just keep on trying. How do I get a pic on here? That was my 6th attempt. I think I will give up now.

  15. Chris Akers added a post in a topic What To Use For Asphalt In A Diorama   

    I use used sanding belts from work, bonded with wood glue, I paint it the cheap Wally world blue first, not entirely, just a quick coat, then primer gray and allow it to dry, then gloss and flat black dustings. Before the last paint cures, I wipe with a rag(non-lint) and thinner until it looks right. Practice Makes Perfect. After a complete curing, I mask off and spray the double yellows and/or white lines. I also make some great guard rail out of the cartons that 2 1/2 dozen eggs come with. And I beams from Index cards.
