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
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.
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.
Your work is impressive! Do you have a site showing all of the Cobras you've built and are working on? Or is there a thread on this site showing all of your Cobras together? I think it'd be cool to see all of the differences.
