    Hands free display lighting?
    I have an illuminated curio cabinet to display my models, with an in line rotary switch. Any ideas out there on how to create a passive on-off switch that senses when someone is in front of it? My attempts at finding some info on Google turned up little. Sounds like something for someone with a home security background. If it can be done for under $100 I would be interested.

    The Premier Rampside is not very accurate in shape, as well as accuracy. Not so much as any clear parts. 
    Dean's Rampside is light years better, and as stated earlier, it was based on a VW Vanagon.

    As I look at the parts layout, I see little clues that spark the ol' memory bank. The cut hood... the four port fender collector for the exhaust. I love it when I see something that I may have built as a youngster. Maybe this time, I'll be smart enough to not paint the body with oil paint!

    So right! Like those hot pipes. How did you get them to look like that?

    Batmobile can be a base for other creations...

    They actually "race" these vans in Japan. Although the pics I have found, show a later model van. I think they are amused at the bulk of them. Plus, vans (usually mini) are still hot over there.

    Thanks, Mike. Is that aerosol, or bottle?

    Well, it took three auto parts stores to find this. Perfect for the look of cast metal, or even a good neutral color. First two "nopes" were Bond Auto, then Auto Zone. The kid at AZ couldn't even get the register to work, which I took as an omen. I was going to settle for "Stainless Steel", but that wasn't what I had set out for. I put the can back while Jr. went looking for help. So glad I waited, as Sanel Auto Parts had it. They are a northeast chain, and a REAL auto parts store, with actual knowledgeable staff.

    After hard times required last year that I liquidate 1000+ kits, I just bought my second kit- the '49 Mercury Woody. Just too cool to pass up. Also found some #11 size saw blades
