      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

    Outstanding workmanship!  This is the first time I've looked thru this garage diorama.. Great detail thru out. I really like the Grime on everything.. esp on the floors and walls.  Unfortunately photos are missing from the beginning..

    If you read pg 2 of the Model Car Science article. It states the Astro wheels have dual spool plates with Walnut spokes.  Perhaps the Texture was the was AMT replicated the Dual spool plates and Walnut spokes..Since this is a Custom vehicle I'm not going to concern myself with the texture.. Just paint to add color to the wheels

    Something else I found while searching for info on the Surf Woodie was George Barris produced a Motorized Surf Board to go with the Surf Woodie.
    There is a Motorized Surf Board in the reissue Gramdpa Munsters Drag-U-La.
    You'll notice the one in the Dragula kit is different that the one in the photo(Off the net)
    Not sure what type engine is on the board in the photo.

    That's kool... What is the Cutter you are using?  How does it know the design to cut?  You can purchase Miniature Hex bolts and nuts or just use Hex Rod.
    I have one of those kits to build..

    I had one of the first issues of the Surf Woodie why back when..
    Fortunately, I've been able to pick up several copies of the reissue (2003 ?). So I could build each version. But I'll probably make a few changes..Change the tires,wheels, engine etc. for the non woodie versions.
    The engine would look kool in a '60's Mustang..

    Here is a scan of the article on the Surf Woodie from Hot Rod magazine Apr. 1965
    The Body color appears to be close to Testors Boyds Roadster Orange.. However I have photos of the Surf Woodie that shows it in a different color.. I'll post those  in another thread

    I haven't picked up the '54 Hudson yet. But I admit I'm not looking foreward to the parts having Texture.
    I guess I'll have to see what happens when paint is applied.
    One would have to ask Why id there Texture to the parts?
    Personaly I like nice smooth surfaces to apply paint to.

    I hope Moebius goes back to the standard smooth texture..
