  2. beefheart22 added a post in a topic Something that really irks me about sellers on ebay   

    When I sold stuff on ebay, I always sent feedback the minute I got payment. Most of my buyers were good at sending me positive feedback when they got their package. Even those who were at the mercy of my occasional screw-ups.

    As for the very few who didn't leave feedback, I assumed they didn't think my service was all that remarkable so I just let them be. I still have my 100% feedback and they hold their peace. Good deal I think. I have been on the other side of that fence too. Many times. If it's just a case of a lazy buyer, it's no big deal because I still got their money!
  3. beefheart22 added a post in a topic How many builds have you completed this year so far?   


    Started two.

    Completed none.

    Now that the weather is less inviting, I can blow the dust off my paint caps and get back to it.

    Always beware of heating contents that are under pressure.

    I live in an apartment too. All I have is a balcony and up here in Toronto it's no doubt we get the winter weather too. I've successfully painted using rattle cans in the winter. You just got to be quick.

    Keep the cans and the parts to be painted inside until your ready. Jump out, spray your first coat and jump back inside and stick it in a waiting closet and close the door until the paint flashes over and everything come back up to room temperature. Then repeat if necessary. Always works for me. Keeping the painted parts in the closet not only keeps in in room temperature, but keeps the smell from wafting too much into the apartment, though some of it still will.

    It's when you wait too long outside and the parts and paint get cold is when you run into trouble.

    That looks terrific so far! TS-54 is a great color.

    Golden Rule: Treat others the way you want to be treated.

    Rule #2: Always cap the glue when not in use.

    True that. People automatically judge based on appearance. It's a natural instinct.

    If I had my way I'd grow my beard and hair out and wear nothing but a bath-robe and slippers... kind of like Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski. I never had any intentions on going to Malibu anyways.

    Biggest point is assuming somebody who's dressed poorly in a hobby shop is automatically a glue-sniffer. The guy was half my height and looked like he has never known the caress of a woman. So I guess that makes him and I even in the judgmental department.

    One day he'll get in the face of a real glue sniffer and eat his next meal through a straw...

    That is amazing!

    Agreed, he does need to find another job. If he's afraid of huffers, the hobby supply business is probably not the right career choice.

    Ah well, the online route is starting to sound better all the time. At least the ladies at the post office appreciate my rugged good looks!

    Got a feeling if that's how he roles, it won't take long for it to happen...

    I should check back next week with a paper bag and ask him which can smells the strongest -- while wearing my suit and tie.

    Dress For Success!
    I learned a valuable lesson about dressing appropriately when buying supplies at my friendly LHS.

    The one I have frequented for the past two years has a new guy running the show who of course doesn't know me from a hole in the ground. It was Saturday, I had nowhere important to be so I hadn't bothered to shave, wearing a beat up cap(my lucky cap that is), hooded sweater and some old broken in jeans. Ya I looked like a bum.

    I asked if he had any of the green bottle Tamiya glue in stock since it wasn't on the shelf and he got all bent out of shape and told me they don't sell glue (which they do!). Asked when they'll have more and he got right up to my face and insisted they don't sell glue. So I picked up some acrylic that was also on my shopping list and he quizzed my intentions for the acrylics.

    I came back a week later, dressed in my work attire and all of a sudden they have plenty of glue in stock. And he is all smiles too.

    Guess I look like a huffer in my grubbies. Never ran into that problem before. What a dink.

    Looks like I have to put up with the cross-town trip to the better LHS from now on. Oh and dress a bit better when venturing out on the weekend.
