    I couldn't agree more, the only "taste" left now, is bad taste; I truly hate any & all of this new gunk .

    I really wish they would do the clearanceing on the other stuff instead

    Wow, between losing a bunch from the break in & then losing more in a tornado; you've had really tough luck with models - real bummer ; what are the odds  
  5. Krazy Rick added a post in a topic Trophies i modelkits   

    I started a thread in the wanted section awhile ago & a few guys came through too !!!    http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/92515-125-kit-trophies-help/#commen                                                                                       - The winged lady trophy is in the Roth Outlaw kit, there is also a larger version in the Uncertain T kit, but that would be much trickier to get.... as far as the ones that have a car topper, there were/are many available in the kits.If you go through the AMT instructions on the Drastic plastic site, you'll see a bunch there.

    Well, I would first recommend that you try posting your question in the help/question section.anyway, I really like using two way tape for glass, it's easy to use & takes away all risk of damage - it works well.

    Right on Greg - I'm with you, I'll take the fun kits, with fantastic & creative box art any day.... The REAL MODELS.

    I think Greg means an earlier time frame within reason & I'd have to agree ..... I really can't see too many of todays modellers running out to buy a hunk of wood in a box

    Nothing against what you believe to be a good cause Tom, but .....I have a couple of concerns regarding the museum .... firstly, I am deeply put off after hearing from two close friends that donated to Mark; shortly after the opening; neither received any form of thank you, not even a note; or message or any recognition of any kind that their models arrived there at all, which I think is really rude. Secondly, it seems as though the museum has very limited access to the public, ( any museums I have visited are open at least 6 days a week & have regular visiting hours ) ;also, I don't understand why the website wouldn't contain all of the "donations" clearly for all to see ( in a more transparent manner ) & be set up in a way that all could visit & enjoy ( especially because of the very limited access. ) & be updated on a regular basis ( It states on the home page that it was to be updated May 2015, unless I'm not navigating properly, I don't see any type of virtual tour in any form, or any improvement of the site in any way at all . My third point, is regarding future ownership of the museum, what happens to the contents; once Mark & Jim - ( "the trustee" ) pass away ? Is there 100% guarantee that no donations will ever be sold ?

    This is the best example of weathering I've seen in a really long time, very refreshing. great diorama - thanks

    So much for my thoughts, of trying to make a replacement using a diamond ring on a crystal salad bowl.

    I like the classics

    You need some type of form, usually, for I've done, the original part is used. if you have a cracked windshield that you need to replace, you'll want to repair it & make sure the crack is glued /filled/sanded well, the plastic will pick up flaws; Plastacine is used to fill the inside cavity & make the part rigid / stable & able to mount in the centre of your plate. Avoid anything with too much undercut, anything that may get locked in; Pump, repeat & keep going to get the best form & always keep the little holes clear on the plate by cleaning with a pin to remove extra plasticine.
