  1. A Thought about the Magazine, etc.

    he's been in the business since the '90s and needs to learn everything? this makes less sense as it goes on and on . . .
  2. A Thought about the Magazine, etc.

    odd as it may seem, has anyone ever actually seen this "Gregg"? all I've been able to figure out is that he lives on an island far far away, doesn't interact with the forum nor produce the magazine people pay for. other than that, he's a great guy, we avert our eyes, and only dare whisper his name. what gives? is there cool aid involved?
  3. Evergreen storage ideas.

    full packages in general order in a kraft paper box from hobby lobby. pieces shorter than 4" go in a plano tackle box. ones in between are getting glued to something. same with stripwood, tubing, & stiff wire. works for me
  4. how would you fix this?

    make a half lap joint with styrene and shape it to match the cowl cut out. use brass rod to reinforce the hinge flap thingie.

  6. A Thought about the Magazine, etc.

    there's a magazine, too? are they paper or e-zines? can I get it on kindle?
  7. What Irked You Today?

    folks quoting entire posts. three or four consecutive postings quotes with a half-dozen pictures, for a two word reply.
  8. Question on making gauge bezels

    nice radio, too
  9. Painting over red

    that was an old trick Henry taught me. to prevent red cedar bleeding through the top coat of paint, he would prime it with silver steam radiator paint. worked like a charm.
  10. Getting started needing help

    like any research project, how deep down the rabbit hole you go is only governed by your threshold for pain: http://oldcarbrochures.com/
  11. organizing parts

    square / rectangular zip lock storage boxes. clear for quick identification. wait for a sale or coupon.
  12. General Modeling Advice?

    there's at least one; I grabber her 23 years ago. she has a sister, but we moved and didn't give her our new address for a variety of reasons.
  13. General Modeling Advice?

    agreed. it sounds great to isolate so you can "get stuff done with no interruptions", but I think in reality the time is more productive with a low level of background noise and activity by others. not drawing you attention away from the task, but enhancing it with the occasional "honey, you've been at it so long I thought you might be getting hungry. I made my world famous snicker-mores and here's a coffee to wash them down" does wonders for the morale. it can also make your hobby more acceptable to others around you because they begin to understand the dedication which goes into building something with your hands. having the workbench & project "at the ready", tools out, parts prepared for the next step, can invite production when a brief or odd moment of unpredicted time avails itself.
