    • Site Upgrade   11/18/2017

      The Forums will be down, Sunday, November 26th starting 9 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.  Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. 
      Update 2: I'm moving the upgrade to 9 AM Sunday.

    Saw Les Variations open for Rush and Aerosmith at the Aragon in 1974.

    Metallica made a live album with the San Francisco symphony around 98 maybe.

    I have all three size markers.  Folks this is a game changer as a modeling aid.  It is more reflective than anything I have ever used.

    What I liked on my 22 R was the little knob as a part of the distributor that allowed you the ability to adjust the timing without having to loosen the base.

    Wishbone Ash, Sabbath, Deep Purple and many others.  It was once said that if you a song about any
    particular subject, just look thru the Kinks songbook and you will find it.
  7. drball added a post in a topic Why are 1/43 Scale Models so Pricey   

    I understand 1/43 scale is so popular in Europe because it they take less space in their smaller living quarters.

    Dang that's good.
  12. drball added a post in a topic Foose - Revell Partnership   

    I would also like to see detailed and accurate models by Ring Bros, Rad Rods by Troy and afew others that I think are on equal footing with Foose and a lot of cases have surpassed his work.

    I was curious on how he thinks they are ruined. Paint, design, wheels (in which I do not like his designs) or other reasons. I like a lot of Chip's work but I do tire of the sameness of his Overhaulin' work, the Foose fade, tucking the bumpers and the ugly wheels.

    Could you further explain.

    How could an animation be scaled anyway? Food for thought.
