Mikey ! You're a nut ! But ..... That's why I luv ya ! Lol ! A very good man once told me that one day I would have to play it forward & give back as to what I had been given . While this particular instance referred to softball , I have never forgotten it & expanded upon it as I grew older . I want others to experience the joy and love that I have for this hobby . Hence the DVDs & my willingness to help out where I can ...... Thank you , buddy !
Ed , You won't regret it for one minute ! I have found that when I am teaching , more often than not , I am learning at the same time myself . They are well worth the cost ! Tim , As of late , I have been doing far more commission work then building for myself . I am scrambling right now to complete as many bodies as I can for the NNL East show in April . I have more than a few projects started for myself but I am up to my ears in commissioned work and they simply sit on the shelves , giving me dirty looks ..... Lol ! I will be posting more pictures as time permits .... Thank ya'll for the compliments , they are greatly appreciated !
Hey , Gang ! Just a bit of a reminder... Quite a few of the individuals involved with the aftermarket have full time jobs . Otherwise , the return address would be a mailbox attached to a cardboard box somewhere underneath a bridge overpass . Speaking for myself , the full time job , commissioned paint work , and running the business , more often than not makes time an enemy rather than a friend . DVD orders are usually in the mail within 4 days , at the longest , a week to ten days . Please learn to be patient . If you don' t hear from me or receive your order within the aforementioned time frame , email me ! Do not file a complaint with PayPal , contact me first . While this is a rare occurrence , it has happened. These actions only lead to more confusion & time wasted ..... I actually had a customer from Germany order the DVDs on a Friday and file a complaint that Sunday alluding to the fact that he had not received his order or payment received notification . Problem being , I was running around on a softball field all weekend . All of us have lives outside the hobby and our businesses . This should be taken into consideration , before one reaches to push the proverbial panic button . Scott Aho , Who is Donn Yost ? Just another anal retentive dimbulb modeler with a passion for the hobby ..... Thanks for "listening " , Ya'll ! Donn
If you are painting on a concrete floor , wet the floor down before you spray . Plastic walls , booths , etc , already have an electro static charge built in . The slightest movement resets it . Carpeted floors are also a big no no in a spray area . Move your work table away from your painting area also ......
Stating that enamels take many days to cure when cut with cheap lacquer thinner is patently false ! I cleared three bodies yesterday morning and wet sanded them out this morning . That's within a 24 hour period .........
Booth temperature was 68 degrees with low humidity . Generally speaking , a one to three day flashout period is to be expected when using a cheap lacquer thinner to cut the enamels with .
I agree that the names should not be shown also . However , the secret is that there are no secrets .... Someone knows whose builds belong to what builder and word spreads like wildfire amongst the brethren . Also , builders who have a certain style will have their models easily recognized as to whom they belong to .
