      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

    Is the Rambler still available?

    I'm interested in the Johan heavenly hearse.  
  4. forthlin added a post in a topic Someone please take the chrome away from the designers   

    I like the chrome. Some cars don't look right with it, but the newer Chevys look pretty good. Cars have been bland looking for years using only black or grey as a contrast, so it's nice to see some shiny chrome again.

    Awesome build! I've had this kit laying around a couple years. I'm not very good at making plastic wood look realistic, so I haven't built it yet.
  9. forthlin added a post in a topic What Pleased You Today!   

    I got my internet back on after being down for 3 weeks. I made 5 different app with my provider to come & fix it & they never showed up at any of them so I changed providers.

    I found a sealed one on a Goodwill auction site last night  & put in a bid for $5.00 & found I won it this morning. Thanks for offering to pick one up for me. I wish we had an Ollies around here. It sounds like a great place for cheap models. Never heard of them until people started mentioning it on here.

    RIP Gregg. So many rockers from the 60's & 70's have been passing the last couple of years. When you're young you never think that the people in the groups you grow up with are going to one day get old & die.

    Lindberg 72197 1/32 900 pumper fire truck
    I'm thinking of ordering one of these. Has anyone built one? I know some of the old Lindberg models have a lot to be desired & I want to make sure this isn't one of them. Is this model actually 12" long?

    A 2 seater '69 Chevelle. The whole car was shortened.

    I wish A Hobby Lobby would be put up closer to me. The nearest one is over 40 miles away. 
  15. forthlin added a post in a topic What Irked You Today?   

    I've had the truck over 6 years & It's always been reliable (until lately). The rust is what stops me. When I bought It there was very little & now it's spreading all over. Even the body mounts are starting to rust through. I can keep it up mechanically but I don't think the body's going to make it through another Indiana winter. It's a shame how devastating road salt is to a vehicle.
