    I have maybe 2 LHS's, Apponaug Hobby, HOBBYRI.com, not much for modelers, 2 sets of shelves, but he has ships, armor, electric trains, slot cars and stuff like that, I only buy BMF or a magazine from him once in awhile. AA Hobbies, right around the corner from my work, but all TRAINS, SHIPS and ARMOR. Darlington hobby in Pawtucket, but I don't drive that far if I don't know whats in stock, been a long time since I've set foot in there, he had a TON of OLD kits but priced out of my range. Most hobby shops don't tend to last around here, between high rents, high cost to supply as a small business, cost have to be past on to the consumer, but the thing that gets me is when the sign says open at 11AM, your there at 12:30pm, UPS labels stuck to the door and the lights are off. Or close at 8pm, you get there at 7pm and lights are out. Can't make money if you ain't open. That's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

    Hi guys,

    Custom Display Bases
    Hi guys,
    thought I'd post this over here.
    I do customer glass engraving.
    These make great display bases, you can do things like the name of the car, or manufacturers logo or a portrait or caricature of the car on the display, your imagination is the limit.
    If this sounds like something you maybe interested in for one of your models let me know.
    write me at jrsautografx@verizon.net
    Thanks for looking.

    it stands for Nameless National Luminaries, it's a model club whose contests are not judged, models are displayed and enjoyed, i think there are people's choice awards.

    Hi Gramps
    Talking to misplaced Mountaineer here.
    Born in Charleston, my Dad was from a little town called Craigsville, near Richwood and Summersville.
    God's country. Love it, miss it, can't wait to go back.
    BTW, I saw some of your airbrush work, very impressive. I do T-shirts myself.

    Hi George and Mr Biggs
    Thanks for your interest. To answer your questions.
    1:) I can go pretty small with the engravings, for instance i put a lot of details in a feather if I'm engraving a bird, you can pick out every feather.
    2:) I've never tried to engrave clear plastic. I use a dremel tool with diamond/carbide tip spinning at about 10,000 rpm. It builds up some heat, so i'm thinking it may melt plastic.
    I engrave almost any glass, beer mugs, shot glasses, flat pieces of glass, and car windows, except windhields. I prefer stuff with a little thickness or temper to it. I did a 3/4 view of a 69 Chevelle on a beer mug, you could pick out every tube in the grill and tread in the tire. One of my upcoming projects is a 3 page spread of a bikini girl on a stereo cabinet door. With the engravings I do, if you put a piece of black paper behind them they really pop, so they should look good as a base for a model. I can even put color in the engravings which looks really cool.
    Thanks again

    Custom Glass Engraved Display Bases
    Hi Everybody
    I'm a new member here. Glad to join. Another of my hobbies beside model building is Custom Glass Engraving. I can make a custom display base of any subject matter. I have given pieces to Richard Petty and John Force and they have put them on display in their museums. If this sounds like something you maybe interested in, please contact me. jrsautografx@verizon.net, we can discuss subject matter and prices. My prices are very reasonable for the service. I'll try to get some pictures scanned to display. I hope to hear back.
    Happy Modelling
