      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    That's a tough looking hot rod. Beautiful paint, and I love your color choices. Great build
  2. Mr. Metallic added a post in a topic Revell 30 Model A Ford Production Halted?   

    Keep getting sucked into checking this thread because I keep hoping there's an update on the situation. Instead the majority of it is just nonsense. I need to start slapping my hand when I think to click on it.

    Replicas and Miniatures sells them too.

    Clean build of a classic kit. Well done
  5. Mr. Metallic added a post in a topic Question for resin casters out there, 30 Model A parts.   

    Apparently Revell is working feverishly to get the molds back into production, they were hoping in the 1st quarter last I heard
    I would love to see a 28/29 Coupe body. I've thought about doing the conversion myself. Upon first look, and this is in no way scientific, it looks like the 28/29 body is much narrower than the 30/31. So, transplanting a roof from the 30 as a starting point would require quite a bit of surgery. But, I could be wrong. Maybe someone could enlighten us?

    Very convincing wear patterns and look of the interior. I really like the overall look.
  7. Mr. Metallic added a post in a topic 1958 Chevy Proton (A Fictional Nuclear Powered Car)   

    Very inventive subject, very nicely executed. Well done
  8. Mr. Metallic added a post in a topic 29 roadster with a twist, trim?   

    How have I missed this build up until now??? Great fabrication and eye for design. I'm following along now!
  9. Mr. Metallic added a post in a topic 53 Ford Hardtop Kustom   

    Smooth kustom. Very nicely executed
    Love the name too.

    Don't get me wrong, the Blackjack car is great. And executed very well. And I can appreciate the unconventional use of parts. I would love to have it in my garage.

    The Time Merchant RPU is probably my fave, but just about all of them speak to me.
    The 2 fat fender customs are works of art.
    And I actually prefer the Gord Gray built 32 to the Blackjack car. IMHO it has a better stance and profile. But that Hot Rod Lincoln roadster and Muroc Roadster are excellent as well.
  12. Mr. Metallic added a post in a topic Has anyone built this wagon?   

    Flintstone definitely has a lot of cool and inventive bodies out there. I have bought a lot, and have built a few. Their quality has also improved greatly over the last 6-7 years over what they had in the past
    One thing to be aware of however, is mold release. Make sure you thoroughly clean, rinse and dry the body. It's common practice for resin casters to use mold release, which isn't a big deal. But the stuff that has been on some of the bodies I've gotten from Flintstone has been very stubborn. Just when I think I've gotten it all, the first coat of primer flakes off. So, just be very thorough with your cleanup process and definitely spray a coat of primer before doing any bodywork so you know that you've removed all that mold release. once that's done your build should be pretty straightforward and pleasant.
     
    Here's my most recent build of a Flintstone body
