  1. We're taking the board offline for some maintenance Saturday, 6 PM PDT. We expect it to be offline for the rest of the evening. I'm taking another shot at upgrading the board software. With any luck, we should be making some performance improvements.
  2. I doubt it's a private message. Not even mods and admins can see those unless you add one of us to the conversation. In all the instances I've seen, the message has been in response to a member's status. Statuses and their responses are public, not private. This seems to be a common point of confusion. If this was a private message, and not a status, please PM me.
  3. I agree. This is a very fiddly kit. I did some touch-up with a Molotov pen, but really, you should strip the chrome, clean up the parts, then use Alclad chrome. You also need to be extra careful with the rear suspension. Mine wasn't quite symmetrical. I didn't measure them, but I don't think the trailing arms are the same.
  4. I finished final assembly of a Surfite.
  5. Sorry to hear that. Please keep us posted.
  6. Try clearing your browser cache, and if that doesn't work, clear the cookies for this site. I think the forum will lock you out if you have too many wrong passwords, so waiting 15 minutes might work too.
  7. Well shoot. That didn't go the way it was supposed to. Some things are taking a LOT longer than they used to. Overall, this is a good thing because there's more content here, but I need a longer maintenance window. Will schedule another one for later this week. Thanks for being patient.
  8. We just got notification of a security patch that needs to be applied right away. I will be taking the board offline tonight at 9 PM Pacific. We'll be offline for 2 hours or so. Longer if things don't go well. This bug would let a robot stuff your email box with spam. I think we want this ASAP. Have fun, build models, and post pictures. Thanks, Dave Ambrose
  9. We've had multiple Coronavirus topics spring up. Many of them are turning political. As you should all know by now, political discussions are prohibited. There are better places to discuss those topics, they don't have anything to do with model cars, and they get contentious with no real resolution even possible. At this point, we are prohibiting any further discussion of the Coronavirus epidemic and locking any topics relating to them. However, please do post about event cancellations that relate to the model car community. Likewise, I'm leaving open topics that relate to the effects. Please do not turn them political. Any discussion about whether this epidemic should be considered serious, or about the government's response will be deemed political. At the very least, your post will be hidden, and you may garner yourself further sanctions if you persist. I appreciate everyone's cooperation. If you have any questions, please contact me, or one of the other moderators.

  11. No, it isn't, but modelers who build taxis are braver than the rest of us.
  12. Another Peet's drinker! Been drinking Peet's coffee since college. It was served by Mr. Peet himself. My wife said all the Peet's at the local grocery store was sold out. There was plenty of other coffee. We seem to be a dedicated lot. I just wonder why the liquor department looks largely untouched.
  13. I didn't actually do any model building today, but I did move my new work table into position. This is an adjustable height "workbench" from Home Depot. Got one for my wife for Christmas, and she loves it. Decided to do the same for myself.
