    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.

    Alan:

    There is the IPMS / Will - Cook chapter that holds their meetings in Homewood, the third Friday of every month in a church basement. There are about a dozen or so active members and for the most part they're plane, tank and ship builders but "car guys" are more than welcome too. I'm a member of the club but I had to take some time away because money is tight, wife is looking for a new job and I just had knee surgery, so I'm on medical leave from my job. FYI - I live on the East Side just north of Hegewisch.

    Nathan, I like how you made those headers look.

    As a suggestion, give those pipes a quick blast of Testors DullCoat as a final effect.

    Awesome progress, so far!!

    Those are some good looking models you have there, Nathan.

    I pretty sure Mike's Decals will be doing that Mello Yellow car as a PowerSlide decal sheet at some point. I'll hold off doing that car until then.

    You captured the look of the real car perfectly.

    I love seeing all your stock car builds from long ago.
