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
I recommend that you order from Hobby Link Japan (http://www.hlj.com/) rather than go through Amazon. They usually have the best price and are so reliable and responsive that you can rest assured that yours will be a hassle-free transaction. I received a package from them yesterday, less than two weeks from order and payment! There aren't any sorts of import duties or other customs fees for shipments to the USA.
As a guitarist, I'm appalled that you post not even a single photograph of this Tele. You should be ashamed of yourself. How are we supposed to get a vicarious thrill from your purchase without a picture?
A very cool idea, Chuck. I love stuff like this and your build makes me want to get the kit and do something similar. My favorite aspects of your build: the tires and wheels, and the way we perceive weight distribution. Nice work.
You DO NOT have a problem. This is what Tamiya acrylics do and it is why we modelers love them: they dry quickly. Don't try to paint straight from the jar. Put a little dab of the paint on a palette and add a little of their thinner. I use Tamiya acrylics almost exclusively for everything I'm brushing. I also use them through my airbrush, but that's a whole different thing. The only time I try to use this paint straight out of the jar is if I'm absolutely confident that I can finish the job in one stroke of the brush. If you are going to be painting for more than about thirty seconds, then you really need to use the process I mentioned above. It is possible to keep dipping your brush in thinner and going back to the jar but that also raises other concerns.
