      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

    Well said, Tom.  Totally agree on all points. 
    Now ... I sure hope Revell brings us a 29 / 30 Ford one day.   Meanwhile ... I'll be rooting through my stash of other cars, trucks, and planes.

    Wish these were re-released.  It was a great series of kits.  Good luck, man.

    Your build is looking great!
    That light ... I'm having a difficult time refraining from toilet humor on that one.

    Cool.  I like seeing these obscure kits being built!

    Two nights in a row!   I added a little wash to the nooks and crannies.  I think it looks a little better.  
    If I can only not booger up the dashboard ...

    Super, Duper, Teeny, Tiny small update!  I got a coat of paint on the interior.  It's looking more "rust" than "dark red"; but I think I'm going to run with it.  At least, I'll try a little wash and drybrushing and see where it ends up.  Worst case - purple pond.

    That is impressive!  How was that kit to build?

    I like where this is headed.

    Very cool. I'll be watching this.

    BIN is nice, but it can go on thick.  I've had great success preventing bleed-through of red plastic using silver or gold hobby paint.  Strip the model (Purple Power or equivalent), wash and dry.  Use LIGHT coats of silver and let it build up - two or three light coats and you're in business.  I'd use all Testor's or all Tamiya paint - just don't cross brands and you'll be in business.  As to comments - it seems in today's world, being somewhat anonymous behind a keyboard or screen seems to cause folk to forget their manners - don't sweat it.  Keep trying and keep posting your progress.    Worst case on this body - if it's toast, but it appears you might be able to still work with it - see if someone will be willing to trade, or if Revell will help you out.  But don't give up, it's a great hobby.

    Probably a lot of old Z's look this way now.  Very realistic.  This is the Revell kit?
