    Reliable Resin = Caveat Emptor.  Let the buyer beware...

    Gravity Colours is your friend on this one.

    You can use the back of a #11 blade just like a plastic body, or you can use a scribing tool . But ( there's always a but ) you need to go slowly and lightly  with resin. Too fast and a heavy hand will cause problems.

    I have never had any problems with the Hypo cement. Maybe you left the top off for to long.

    I've always used Watch Crystal Cement ( Hypo-Tube cement ) to glue clear parts. This stuff never fogs. But I might try this CA type glue the next time I have to buy glue.

    Congratulations. I hope that you enjoy every minute. I'm pulling the pin in April of 2018 myself, looking forward to it as well.

    Nice looking kits. But those tires look like BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH. They look too tall and square, instead of being rounder at the side walls where it meets the contact patch. Maybe the aftermarket can come up with a correct resin replacement.

    I liked her as well. She struggled to find work after Happy Day's ended. But like most child stars,she seemed to have problems with drugs and the bottle. She did try to get her life together, but it looks like her demons got the better of her. Be at peace Erin.

    Use Chevy Engine Red. That's what RCR used.

    It's been a tough month, I lost my mother on March 5th. She was in a long term care facility for the last two years. When she passed it was hard, as my brother and I cared for her for 6 years before it got too much for us to look after her in her home. Then Harry passed. I only knew him through emails, but I had been following what he was going through with his sickness.since he let us know about it. This has made me stop and think about my life , really think. I've come to the realization that life is short and time is even shorter. I've made up my mind that in the spring of 2018 I'm going to retire and start spending more time doing what I want to do instead of what my employer wants me to do. My wife is being forced to retire from her job after 37 years with the same company, so this will work out fine for us as we can now spend more time together and start to enjoy life on our own terms .

    This news is so sad.  : (
  13. kitbash1 added a post in a topic Your package went where?   

    I bought a sheet of decals back in February of 2012,They got lost in the mails and my money was refunded. Well they showed up in my mail box in December of 2016. It took the USPS and Canada Post 4 years, 10 months and 45 days to get my decals to my door. Beat that one.
  14. kitbash1 added a post in a topic What do you drive?   

    This is my summer car. It's a 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Convertible, with a 3.4L DOHC and a 4speed auto trans. She just had a new cloth top installed last spring. 

  15. kitbash1 added a post in a topic Real estate...sort of   

    Wow! Cudas, Darts and a Sunbeam Tiger too. Chevy Nomads in the mix as well. God, Maybe I should take my inheritance and buy the place. Then again, the wife might have something to say about that.
