      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

    They also have a craft section at Walmart with various sizes of chain for jewelry making.  Also JoAnn Fabrics if they have those near you.

    Thanks Art!  On a related question, when did they go from white to black rubber tires?  I'm thinking of coloring the white tires in the kit, mostly because I think it will look better with black.

    You've set the bar pretty high my friend with your first build!

    best brass finish?
    I'm working on a '14 Model T fire car and none of the kit parts are plated (the new ICM kit).  I'm looking for opinions on the best way to replicate the shiny brass parts such as the radiator shell and headlights.  Thanks in advance!

    Got my copy today.  Outstanding photographs, can't wait to dive in to the prose.  Ditto on vol. II.

    That's pretty cool!  Love the idea of the straight 8, not the same old SBC.

    Nice use of spare parts!

    I'll third it.  I used to use the Color Place gray primer also but it seems they no longer stock it?  I use the black and white, both flat and gloss and they work well.
