  1. Our Michael's is a joke

    First off every Michael’s I have been in has a very poor model section, forget them. Second, only 20 miles to a Hobbytown ? Consider yourself lucky. The three nearest full service hobby shops to me are 35, 39 and 53 miles away. Get used to it as that is the new reality, 20 years ago I had 6 shops within 10 miles of me. Didn’t realize how good I had it.
  2. The artwork for this one at least still exists.. I have one that is exactly like this out of a recent issue of the Model T.. Do not ask which one as I pulled it out & diplayed it on my shelf..

  4. IndyCals, safe to buy?

    Good product and service, buy with confidence.
  5. Star Models

    Steve is a good guy to deal with, if you have any questions contact him. He has always answered mine in a timely fashion. His products are good quality, he also has an ever decreasing supply of R&R. Quality there can be spotty.
  6. Resin. Polyester or polyurethane?

    Polyurethane is what resin model parts are made from.
  7. How can I convince them we need a hobby shop here?

    Good luck, I live in an urban/suburban county of 1.2 million people. There is exactly one hobby shop in this county & it is on life support. To my knowlage there are three other shops within 50 miles of my home. One of those looks like it will be closing soon. Between less & less people being involved in hobbies & internet sellers it is a VERY tough business to be in. 20 years ago I had six shops within 10 miles of me, didn't appreciate how good I had it.

  12. 1/25 Paxton Turbine Indy source?

    I have two of the MPC 1/20 kits but my scale bigotry still wants a 1/25 one. Every time I pull the Jorgenson kit out I get depressed. It is such a big challenge.
  13. 1/25 Paxton Turbine Indy source?

    There was a resin kit done by Bill Jorgenson some years ago. He used to sell regularly on eBay, have not seen him there in years. The kit is decent looking but as with all Joergenson kits take some doing to get a finished model. I have been playing around with mine on & off for years.
  14. Great pictures Tim, thanks for posting them. Also thanks much for the kind words.
