      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

    How could they get done for murder? That's premeditated.
    Manslaughter would be more likely I'd imagine.

    Try a tube of Turlexax Scratch  Remover Graham. you should be able to get it at most Motor Factors

    No worries.
    A bit of polishing compound on the paint would make it perfect ,if you don't mind me saying so.

    I think you're hiding your light under a bushel Graham.
    Military modllers aren't supposed to be able to do shiney paint!

    They were called Datsun 120 Y over this side of the Pond if that helps your search.
  10. dublin boy added a post in a topic Clear over decals - whats the trick?   

    I always paint a plastic spoon, cut out part of a decal you don't need and clear that as a test, 
    Some clears are hotter than others.
  11. dublin boy added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    You can't find it over here either, though the bigger branches of WHSmith seem to stock it from time to time in the UK, For example you won't find it in Coventry, but I've seen it in a Birmingham City Centre shop.

    I think the problem of lack of supply is the company had no idea all us mad model car builders would send sales through the roof.
    Most of the guys I know have one, or one on order. I'm sure the Sales Director is very happy!

    Fabulous!
  14. dublin boy added a post in a topic Model Roundup   

    I ordered a couple of Jo-Hans from Jack a few months ago on the phone. (I'm obviously old school..lol)
    He's a nice guy to deal with, I think he said it was the first time he sent kits to Ireland. 
    Both arrived on time in perfect condition.
