      Unfortunately, we were unable to upgrade the board software due to some technical difficulties. We will try again once we get the problems worked out.

    Very nice!  I really like the simplicity of this straightforward rod.

    Testor ModelMaster paint bottle lids
    I have become so frustrated with Testor paint lids.  If Testor would just copy Tamiya lid design (large, easy to grip plastic top, soft plastic inner liner), I would be so appreciative.

    I have some Micro Mark CR-300 urethane resin I've been using for over a year.  Recent castings have tiny (less than 1 mm) bubbles just below the surface of the bottom of the piece, i.e., next to the detailed part of the slush mold.  I've squeezed the resin bottles to get as much air out as possible.  Is there any cure?  Sanding causes the bubbles to expand and once their surface is open I have not been able to fill or seal them.  BTW, I greatly prefer CR-300 to any alternative I've tried:  little smell, easy to work (a little softer than model car styrene).

    Blair's rat rods and truck models were works of modeling art.  And a good guy.  R.I.P.

    Dawn soap (not ultra) for washing brushes, etc.
    On a tip from an optician, I now wash my glasses with plain old Dawn (not Ultra).  It rinses off my plastic lenses leaving nothing behind.  I started washing paint (acrylic) brushes with it and they often squeak when I squeeze the water out.  Maybe some paint problems were caused by a residue from some detergent with about a dozen strange ingredients.

    Good to see someone applying themselves to making a design decision work in a reasonably realistic manner.  Kudos!

    I'm not sure why, but I see Grommetto driving and Wallaci hanging on for dear life.
