The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 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.
My wife is a Teacher, she went back to school in her 40's taking out numerous student loans to get her teaching degree and a secondary in Special Ed. Previously she had worked as a paraprofessional for seven years for a school district. She found a job in a very remote location in Montana at a "One Room" schoolhouse grade K-8. She currently has seven students - we have been here for two years and her contract was terminated due to the school board does not want to offer a Teacher tenure. (but they do not tell you this) When she Interviewed for the position I was there as we would be living on location in a two bedroom apartment connected to the school. The gave us their big smiles and said "We really have been hoping to find someone that will stay" , claiming that others could not handle the remote location and being 40 miles away on dirt road to the nearest town. If they had said this was a two year job only , that would of made a big difference in our decision to come here. They tell you that "we hope you like our community and will stay" what a crock. Sad thing is these kids have no stability for learning as there is a two year turnaround on teachers. And beings that two sets of students have parents on the school board - what kind of example are they setting for their children ? So here we are with little over a week from school being out without her having a job or even a place to live.
Montana is a beautiful state in certain areas, where I am at not so. This part is one area that was not meant to be inhabited. Even the dinosaurs died off from lack of greenery to eat or water to drink. That should of been the first warning. The well went dry for the ranch I worked for last summer, they had to drill to a depth just shy of 2000 ft to hit water. Where I am our well went dry in February, we have had to haul water and it is not drinkable. Harry there might not be any hurricanes but the wind blows here( my area) all the time. Usually straight down from Canada and frigid.
Harry, when I lived in Washington state I was transforming into a birder and logging them along with lots of photography. Here in Montana where I am at the birds are few and far between as they have better sense to travel through this desolate place.
The trick with Alclad is to paint it with very low pressure and from a distance.I spray about 8" away and such a light mist you wont even see any color untill about the 3rd or 4th time. Maybe that is how you need to try the Spaz. I have never used it so I dont know for sure.
Thanks guys, Due to an unexpected upcoming move I am disassembling my hobby room. I have lost my momentum on this truck and several others. I do not feel like packing these partial builds up to move. If anyone is interested in taking over this GMC project drop me a p/m.
I always find those listings pure entertaining. I am pretty sure I have seen that persons work before from you accurate description. I think you may have forgotten the seam line separations. The way I look at it if those trucks are "pro built" then that must put my models in the "expertise" level . I have only bought "old built ups" due to needing parts or to restore as the kit is no longer available. But a lot of people do buy built models as well as diecast for displaying.
