  1. Issue #205

    Issue #205 was sent to printer last week Doing the last of the paperwork now, it's been plated/printed, and should be mailed out once they get the rubber check for postage from me. Heads Up: There are two misteaks that I know of that I missed in one bit, it's my fault, no excuses, but this was a very hard issue to do. It's Harry's last issue, and every time I worked on the bit it hurt, I know, sappy to say, but that's the way it is. So, now it's 26/8 on Slot Cars #7, and then work on 206 AND Contest Issue, at the same time, hopefully I can sit up long enough to do this. Thanks for your patience, and support
  2. Welcome, Kevin. An attorney, hhhmmmm.... :-) Don't know if you checked out the Big Boyz section here. Facebook also has a big scale group. 3D printing is real big now, pardon the pun, I have done a few articles on this, and I have a few 1/16 projects featuring 3D printed parts coming up in the mag soon.

  5. Selling on the Forum - Poll

    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....
  6. Mailing Labels: Issue #204

    It seems that the mailing label for Issue #204 has caused a lot of confusion. It shows: EXPIRATION ISSUE 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.
  7. Helping MCM

    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!
  8. 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...
  9. Has anyone picked up one of these? https://www.harborfreight.com/8-inch-x-12-inch-bench-top-wood-lathe-95607.html 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.... Thoughts?
  10. Model Cars Magazine Renewals

    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 Thanks
  11. 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! Mahalo.
  12. 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....
  13. MCM T-Shirts Are Back!

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

    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!
  15. MCM T-Shirts Are Back!
