    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 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.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

    I have locked this thread, for now
    Yes, eModelCars was a nice try, never did pan out
    Wasn't really a waste of money, more like time and resources
    I know there is a classified plug for this software, maybe once we get the site/software/server updated, can look into that, and make it a pay side
    But for now, it's a no.
    If you want to send me your kits, that would be great
    Or better yet, send money!!!!
    Getting there, but for now, every day now is bookkeeping/accounting/filing/updating/cross-checking/mailing/data/and of course, farting....

    Mailing Labels: Issue #204
    It seems that the mailing label for Issue #204 has caused a lot of confusion.
    It shows:
    209 (your actual number will be here)
    A lot of people are reading it as the issue in your hand is your last issue, your Expiration Issue. Not True (unless your number is 204).
    The number below it is your expiration issue.
    The printer made the misteak (yes, I still spell it that way), and they have said it won't happen again (yeah, write...)
    I had asked that the label read:
    EXP ISSUE: 209 on the top right of the label
    Didn't happen.
    So, I apologize for the confusion, and if you renewed early because you thought it said this was your expiration issue, thank you for your support, and patience, while things get back on track.

    I should have posted this earlier
    Two guys have stepped up and helped with the index!
    Jim (CrazyJim, I hope I got the screen name right, and Bob from Cali have been working on the index.
    Now I have to start putting them together on the site, and hopefully link them to the past issues.
    I know, more things to do, but now there is a great start on the indexing, and it will make things a lot easier.
    Mahalo nui loa Jim and Bob!

    I've been turning for a little while, have most of the basic tools, it's neat with the Sherline though, I can make exact straight cuts across the pen like a straight razor!!!!
    She likes the no gloss finish, bare wood, I am tending to agree.
    Thanks, guys!
    Will see if she wants to cough up the dough...

    Harbor Freight Lathe (WoodWorking)
    Has anyone picked up one of these?
    It's super cheap, and Kelly wants to get into turning pens, don't want to use the Sherline for this.
    Also, we don't have a Harbor Freight here, so..... :-)
    I know it's cheap, $80, and shipping would be about $110, but then, it's cheap....

    Should have been more clear, again, sorry
    I sent postcards out to those who expire with Issues 198-202
    To US Addresses only
    As you know, sending anything over the borders by US Mail is cost-prohibitive
  7. Gregg added a post in a topic Model Cars Magazine Renewals   

    I had sent out renewal postcards a little while ago, but honestly, I don't remember seeing that many, if any, returned. Have any of you received the postcards? They were sent as a postcard, the small size, no envelope, with the info on the back.
    I'm curious.
    I did see one at GSL, Mike L showed me one he got, but I think that's the only one I have seen.
    Let me know!
  8. Gregg added a post in a topic MCM T-Shirts Are Back!   

    Mike, can I use the pic for the t-shirt page on the site?
    Yes, you'll get royalties, but you have to sign your life away with a release!!!! :-)
    Love the workbench!
    Yes, mediums are in the next batch/run to do, blacks for now, Ash/grey  next time
    I can only scrape enough pennies to do this a bit at a time
    Not made of money, (I wish!!!), just trying to squeeze every last nickel I can to get through each day.
    Getting there, slow but sure....

    My T-Shirt guy sent proof, two versions, for the ash and/or white shirts.
    Need y'all's input on this.

    Thanks, Michael! I didn't put two and two together for you on that one. 
    Ordered the 3XL and the 4XL today, and Ash Large, XL, and 2XL
    It will be up to my printer guy now, he turns them around pretty quick, and his work has been great!!!!
    I may even use him for some graphic stuff here as well.
    Mahalo nui loa!

    Strange, there are only five lower vertebrae!!!! :-)
    Two too many, that's the problem!!!!
    Sell them on eBay!
  12. Gregg added a post in a topic MCM T-Shirts Are Back!   

    Okay, fixed it
    That was so weird!!!!!
  13. Gregg added a post in a topic MCM T-Shirts Are Back!   

    I'm looking into this.
    Also, t-shirt sales/shipping is to US Addresses only. 
    Sorry, I assume that this would be known, that's what I get for assuming, yes?
  14. Gregg added a post in a topic MCM T-Shirts Are Back!   

    That is bizarre! Never saw that one before.
    I checked the URL redirect after sale, it should go to plain paypal thank you.
    I wonder if was an old cached page from your browser?
    Did anyone else get a redirect after purchase like this?
  15. Gregg added a post in a topic MCM T-Shirts Are Back!   

    I know, I messed up
    I had set up the shirts on PayPal as a Shopping Cart, it should have been Buy Now.
    It's fixed.
    Thanks, Mike and JB
    Yes, I'm that brain dead....
