    It depends on what I'm in the mood for. My two favorites are Popeye's Chicken and Fat Bastard Burrito's ( and yes, that's the real name of the place ). When I was in high school, there was a local place call Harry's Burgers in Scarborough. My standard order was their Steak on a kaiser ( medium rare ), onion rings and a large orange drink.

    I have no problem with the way you post your pictures. Keep up the good work.

    Well, the C7R is on my to get list.

    Too true. Hockey parents, Soccer parents, Go-Karting parents.

    My question is, where do you buy Embossing Powder ? I'd like to give it a try on my next build.

    Maybe this is what Todd is referring to as " Clear Coat ". That's what came to mind when I first saw his post.

    You make some very good points Howard.  As you know, we have 5 hobby shops in our area of Durham Region and the eastern part of Toronto. I buy from all 5 as well as the internet shops, Ebay and yourself. What I can't get from the LHS I get from other sources. So, I think that I spread my cash around the hobby and support everyone, both brick and mortar stores and online ones.

    I agree 100%.The best 18 bucks I've spent on  reference material in a long time.

    Just because you can, doesn't mean you should...

    From what I got from the artical, the decal sheet only does the 4 car. Maybe Patto will do a full sheet to do both. But it's a nice kit to add to my Corvette shelf.

    Try using plan white vinegar. This is used as a poor mans developer in black and white film development. It might work on the off set plates.

    Me too.

    I just hope that it has a full decal sheet with nothing missing. But that won't be the case, at least the aftermarket will hopefully do a fill in sheet.

    What are you going to do? Are you trying to make a plate or are you just wanting to strip the coating from the plate. You can just use water to remove the coating as it's water soluble.

    Before there was BTO, Randy and Fred formed Brave Belt and put out one album under that name before becoming BTO.
