      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 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.
  2. 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!
  5. 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.

    Any HT leads on this one Geoff?

    Thanks for that JC, I never even knew he'd got back into any kind of racing.

    The Stratos builds up nicely, great to see the Mk2 Escort coming back out though. 
    I wonder who owned the molds when Revell repopped it?

    Glad you got one sorted out, they're quite nice for an 80's kit, I had a good look at one before I sent it across the Pond.

    Very nice JC, 
    Great scratch building as always.
    Ford Transit van hauling it down to the Goodwood Revival maybe?
  11. dublin boy added a post in a topic Removing Chrome from Italeri   

    Sometimes when normal bleach won't work, caustic soda does the trick. 
    I wonder if it's got a different name over there?

    Nice Geoff, has it got a roof up option?

    Halfords have, or at least had Boston Green in rattle cans.
    You can decant that and use it without thinning if they still have it.

    I think they're 20% bigger than US gallons, but why did that even happen?

    And how is a gallon of petrol smaller in America?
