      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

    what kind of primers do you guys prefer anyways? im hoping to be able to progress in the model building abilities...lol...although when you build $100,000 show cars for people it kind of helps to get realism. i would also like to know where you guys are getting your sanding and polishing stuff

    newbie question on paint
    hello,i am kinda new to this stuff. i used to put models together as a kid but that was better than 20 yrs ago....lol. i am working on a 1966 chevelle station wagon. i have been using testors lacquer paints. i have used flaming orange for the base and used gloss lacquer clear as a top coat. i would like to wet sand the finish and spray the testors wet look clear which is also lacquer. it has been about 2 weeks since i sprayed the clear,is it safe to sand and re-clear?
