      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

    DeLorean Time Machine
    The Back To The Future DeLorean Time Machine. Aside from the Batmobile, one of the most iconic movie vehicles ever! I thought Deloreans were cool from the moment that I first saw one so you can imagine what effect this movie had on the DeLorean's coolness factor. I've been working on this for a few weeks now and finally have some progress worth posting.

     
    This is a Snap-Kit. The pieces are intended to go together much like a 3-D puzzle, they snap and click into place. Realistically, I could probably assemble this kit in less than thirty minutes.

     
    The main focus of this kit will be on detail painting and adding little bits and bobs to increase the visual interest.

     
    The first bit I want to address is the TFC Drive Circuit. In the movie it's shown as a set of discs arranged in-line with a clear cover, reminiscent of an old style TV tuner. There is also a handle on the end that Doc Brown cautions Marty not to confuse with the gearshift.

     
    The TFC Drive Circuit I want to replicate is on the right. Don't ask me what TFC stands for or what the Drive Circuit does, I'm not that much of a geek.

     
    The first task is to remove the old bit.

     
    While I work out how to make the TFC Drive Circuit, I'll attend to some the more simple matters, like painting and carpeting the interior. The "carpet" is embossing powder.  I masked and painted the floor, sprinkled the powder on the wet paint, waited for the whole mess to dry, then painted the powder.

     
    With the "carpeting" now dry now I can start on some of the detail painting.

     
    As always, thanks for taking the time to look and please feel free to comment.

    Looks great! Excellent decal work, those had to have been a bugger to work with.

    Excellent job on the Cadillac Yuri! I like the Arizona plates too.
    I looked at your build progress on the other web site, you've put a lot of work into this and the results are well worth it.
    I noticed that you live in Krasnodar. A couple of years ago I sold my 1971 Oldsmobile Delta 88 to a man who lives in Krasnodar. It seems that classic American land yachts are popular in your part of the world!
