      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

  1. 58 Impala added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    Found one of the elusive 30 Model A coupes at a Hobby Lobby outside of Dallas while visiting my family over the weekend. Went to the store with the hopes of one being on the shelf, and there was one left.

    Question for resin casters out there, 30 Model A parts.
    I have a question for resin casters kit there. Being that we don't know if and when Revell will start releasing the 30 Coupe again, and we have a lot of the roadster kits that made to the shelves (I have a few). Are there any resin casters out there casting, or are planning to cast parts to make the roadster into a coupe (roof and 32 grill )?

    Very nice job. Beautiful color. I have a couple of models that blue would look good on.

    1/16 scale T/F slicks
    I have the Revell 1/16 scale Garlits top fueler kit. The slicks that came with the kit are ruined (my fault). I'm looking for a set, either original or aftermarket. Any help wood be appreciated, thanks.

    Phenomenal work Randy. Your attention to detail is inspiring to other modelers. Where do you get your scale hardware? I used to use "Scale Hardware" but he has closed up shop.

    Sad day for Hot Rodding, I always loved the iconic "California Kid". RIP Pete.

    Just enough, no engine is too much. The 409 is perfect. Nice work so far, will be following your build.
