      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

  1. Eshaver added a post in a topic Service station Jeep   

    I own two vintage service station groups on Face Book . I've also collected hundreds of photos over the years , some with Jeeps . Your work is very remissness ant of such a light sevixce vehicle and extremely well done !
  2. Eshaver added a post in a topic Resin Gas Pumps   

    I do pumps myself and never really got excited about pumps after about 1959. I did a couple of Tokiem Explorer dispensers and a pair of the Specialty ROUND  pumps one time years back for George 53 . I just can't seem to justify doing a resin mold for gasoline pumps . Everyone seems to want speed parts and car bodies .
  3. Eshaver added a post in a topic Revell History   

    Greg , Art and I converse back and forth on Faceless Book all the time . I've filled in a few blanks for him on occasion and having him on the phone is a delight .  I'm too busy trying to republish my first book, actually , a Text book on the history of retail gasoline

    Probably ANYTHING you might wish to know about A M T , or SOME S M P for that matter is going to be Art Anderson .
  5. Eshaver added a post in a topic Nicest 4 banger; your thoughts.   

    I'm partial to Revell's 1930 Model A Woody- Rick up . It dosen't take a lot of detail to really spark this old kit to life ...
  6. Eshaver added a post in a topic Charlie Larkin your email has been hacked.   

    Charlie is on Facebook and he's in my diorama group . Do ya'all want me to message him ?
  7. Eshaver added a post in a topic Your Rarest Built Kit.   

    I guess this AMT 1960 Ford truck . This came to me unpainted , partly assembled by way of George 53 several years ago .


  8. Eshaver added a post in a topic Scale model of the Week   

    I remember buying one of these when it was a Jo-han annual . There too, I was a fan of both the 1965 Oldsmobile and the 1970 El Dorado. I wanted one of these cars in 1-1 to drive . The closest I got was a 1969 Oldsmobile delta 88 Convertible . None the less , these cars were GREAT drivers and so was the kit in the detail for it's day . My biggest regret was the glue we had in 1970 .......

    This diorama employs what a WELL DONE diorama has ! You're attention to detail and the realism take it over the top .

    Traveling to Richmond Va this holiday season ?
    The lewis Ginter Botanical gardens miniatures show opens this Friday 11-25 at 9AM . Also within blocks are a late 40's Esso and an Amoco . Both stations are near original . I'll be on hand 11-25 to welcome guests in the library where you can see replicas of former service stations I have created over the years .

    The Bikes and the Kart get my vote as a re issue too !
  12. Eshaver added a post in a topic What's the most copies of one model car kit bought for u guys?   

    I guess that would have been AMT's 1925 Ford Model T kit . I've done several scratch built bodies off this kit and I could continue onward just as various custom cab builders did in the day with the real ones .
  13. Eshaver added a post in a topic would love to see pics of "can painted" models   

    Pick one ! Seriously , all the models here are Rattle can jobs :





  14. Eshaver added a post in a topic This is a joke, right?   

    Greg , sadly for the longest time , I have seen this "Bravery " , not just here , but especially on Faceless book . I have no idea how a keyboard can extract such bravado , but it does . I'm on several forums plus Facebook. I look for the GOOD stuff to comment on instead of playing "Armchair critic " if anyone wants a lesson on how to ruin a hobby , well , go back to page 1 .....
