  1. Small nuts and bolts ?

    Watch out for those train nuts, some are square instead of hex.
  2. What did you get today?

    I picked up the reissue Beretta Prostreet to go with the original issue decals I got earlier. The original issue has always been one of my favorite box builds. I want to replicate it (with maybe a couple small changes). I looked for an original issue, but they are hard to find and the ones I saw were pricy. I also got some very thin Dremmel blades for cutting open panels and such. Used carefully, these make a very thin cut. The downside is they like to eat fingers, so respect is due. Hosted on Fotki
  3. Small nuts and bolts ?

    Great Thread. I'm saving this. Model Doctor used to have some, but they are long gone. I've been using hex shaped styrene, but getting a straight cut is a challenge. I've had good results from Scale Hardware. Especially nice if you want to bolt on certain larger 1/25 scale parts like wheels and such. When trimming PE pieces that like to fly away I back them with masking tape first. Cheap insurance.
  4. Seven for 2017

    Great set. I really like the TD box builds.

  6. What did you see on the road today?

    Caught this nice ride out side a Jack in the Box in south Corona. SoCal treats. Hosted on Fotki

    Tom, LOL. That was spot on! Scott.

    Great subject matter, John. Excellent work as always.
  9. Reliving your modeling youth

    Most of the money on spent on kits as adult was replacing what I had when I was a kid.
  10. I got a matched set. Bye, bye gas station.

    Hey ACE, It's too early to tell, the additional usage on the EV. We are estimating a 100+ per mo fuel saving. We got the panels because we run AC and pool over the summer. The total yearly panels payments were less that the total yearly Edison Eletric payments. So it made sense to buy them. Also its easier to sell the house if the is not some panel contract attached. I get you about loosing power and getting stranded. We are looking at a house battery. But the tech seems to be not quite there yet. Until then we still have a dino-burner on hand.

    They are very quick off the line. That potential 1/4 mile speed is interesting because most of our high school hot rods ran in the 15s. I'll bet there is a hack to unlock the speed limiter.
  12. We leased one of these... Hosted on Fotki To go with these... There is another bank around the corner. Hosted on Fotki We leased the car because we feel that the technology and cost will vastly improve by the time the lease runs out. We bought the panels (on payments) because they will last at least 25 years. We work at the same place, so our fuel bill should drop dramatically. Oh, the car is pretty quick. The irony that it is a cloudy day is not lost on me.
  13. What did you see on the road today?

    I saw this very nice Nova on the way to Costco in Corona but couldn't get a pic. Two day later a blow out on the freeway (not fun) led me to a tire store in Riverside. Guess what was there... the Nova. I snapped a couple pics. Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki
  14. Terrible Box Art
