  1. Gregg added a post in a topic Revell 1966-1977 Bronco   

    As you can see, I was a bit too aggressive on the sanding before I primed it with Tamiya Grey. I should have primed it first, and then wet sanded it. The details are so fine, so crisp, just that small sanding on the driver's door removed the door key/lock. You have to watch all the ribs/tops of the body, even the back of the hood has the hood hinge part molded in. The rear of the body has a small lip for the hardtop to sit on. Everything is done right. There are mold/pin marks under the hood and hardtop. Also, the hardtop is really thin, so thin it could be broken easily while sanding/painting it. It was hard to remove the ghost line on the hardtop, where a soft/half cab roof would be (future release?).
    So, yes, will be history, or maybe just be hidden reason for this new Revell Bronco?
    Yes, I know, I'm nutz....
    k den
    I will hopefully finish it tomorrow.

    Kelly's dad had the port, and we knew it was there, but he said it didn't bother him.
    He's now 85 (on Monday), and still cheering for the Dodgers....

    Charley, thank you so much for all your support of Harry, your friendship, and your insight on all of this.
    It really means a lot. 
    I owe you big time, and hopefully, one day we can get together for a drink and a laugh, with Harry of course!!!!
    Mahalo nui loa!
  5. Gregg added a post in a topic email from Harry, marked URGENT   

    A couple of friends just sent me copies of emails that I supposedly sent to them, from the back up modelcarsmag at email address.
    If anyone receives an email from the MCM Yahoo account, it is fake, and some have had a link in the email. I have seen two so far.
    Say it what it is: A Scam.
    Someone wanting something for nothing.
    Another sign of the entitlementelitistswanteverythingfornothing crowd.... That's a tough one to read without the spaces!!!!

    Chris, #202 is on Magzter.
    I will also upload it to the MCM site.
    So many little things, I need a bigger To Do section of the desk...

    after some research, it looks to be part of that big Yahoo email hack/attack. Didn't know ATT email was with Yahoo. The timing is just ironic. Coincidence? Probably

    email from Harry, marked URGENT
    If you got this email from Harry, disregard, it's a fake. Subject line is all caps, URGENT

    I am very sorry I could not inform everyone about my trip to (Manila,Philippines) for a program because it was impromptu, the program was successful but my journey has turned sour I was mugged at gun point and all my valuables were stolen cash, credit cards and phone, where I went for sightseeing before leaving to the airport since my return flight is in few hours. Luckily I had my passport in my hotel room to get me home.

    It's was a bad experience I need your help financially to get back home, I need to settle some outstanding hotel bills and also take a cab to the airport, I have contacted my bank but the best they can do is to mail a new card which will take 3 days to get here, Please let me know if you can help me out? I promise to make the immediate refund when i get home.

    All hopes on you.

    This is fake. The email return address is to a different account, not his.

  11. Gregg added a post in a topic Our Harry needs help   

    Guys, as many, if not all of you know, Harry has been the guy who has made Model Cars look like it does since the January 2008 issue (Issue #129). Harry basically covered my okole for the past five or six years while I was literally on my back dealing with my issues. 
    Now, it's time for not only me, but the rest of this big model car ohana to do what you can to help him out. As Cato said, there is a GoFundMe page that you can donate. 
    The link is: Harry's GoFundMe page
    I'm doing what I can, and I hope everyone else will also.
    I will try and take more control over the forum, so he doesn't have to worry about all the normal things that come up with the day-to-day banter, topics, threads, replies, etc. Also, Darryl and I will be trying to take as much pressure off of what he does for the production of the magazine, and field all the questions that come up.
    If you have questions on anything with the forum, or magazine, contact me or Darryl. 
    Let's gather around our friend, our Harry, and help him get through this.
    He helped me get through my situation, it's payback time.

    Aoshma (BEEMAX) Nissan 240RS Rally
    Another new one in the Aoshima/Beemax line of '80s Rally Cars is the Nissan 240RS from the 1983 New Zealand Rally.
    Nice body, very nice rims, good details, but, it's curbside.

    Jim, I do appreciate any offer of help
    However, Like I have stated 329 times, email me, let me know what you can do, and we can go from there.
    I just did a full search of emails, the only one I show from a "CrazyJim" is October 2014.
    I don't mean to sound like an ungrateful ass, but look at from this point of view.
    Yes, you want to help.
    What can you do?
    Can you set up an easy to use system, maybe using Excel with pivot tables that can pull up all subscriber info?
    Can you set up a FileMaker Pro template to use with the Excel data?
    Or something else?
    For me to explain how to do something would take longer to do than to do it myself.
    Plus, I don't fist the forum often, hardly at all.
    I save 93.487% of all emails.
    I have over 32,000 in the inbox still, and that's not counting folders.
    You want to help?
    I appreciate the offer.
    Email me.
    What can you do?
    Seriously, just saying you want to help, then only posting that on the forum, and then really just laying it on me for not responding?
    Sorry, but this gets me, big time.
    Marcos, Tom, unnamed and witness protection people, mahalo nui loa!!!!
    As for deadlines, cough up $50K to get the next three issues printed and we'll all be happy.
    Yes, things are getting on track.
    It's worse than starting from scratch.
    When you start from scratch, you get the initial subscriber monies that come in.
    I had to honor over 2,000 subscribers, and rely on renewals, and dealer sales.
    The percentages I was hoping for in submitting renewals and invoices paid are not even close to the projected numbers I ran.
    how did Golden Bell do it?
    Easy, they did it all in house
    I have to pay, up front, the printing and mailing costs.
    Am I complaining?
    Nope, stating facts.
    Am I making excuses?
    Nope, stating facts.
    Why not go to all digital?
    Nope, never going to happen.
    So, either you are in it for the long haul, have faith in what we all are doing, and will do what you can, when you can, 
    or you're not.
    Sorry for the rant
    Probably my longest post.
    Just got back from the main post office, had to take care of the filing forms for sending out the mag, through USPS, not fun, and I will probably forget what I'm supposed to do.
    Which is why I don't like phone calls anymore
    I don't mind talking, I just won't remember what was said, what I'm supposed to do, or sometimes even who called.
    Okay, I pau
  15. Gregg added a post in a topic Barnes & Noble and MCM   

    Thanks for the updates.
    Still trying to get into their data system, to see what stores get how many copies.
    Too complicated for my last brain cell.
