      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

    Tim... Right on... You are going to do one heck of a job on this scoop. It is shaping up very nicely so far. Keep up the great work.

    John... Glad to see you got the working lights done up and that the soldering worked out for ya. It's looking good. Another talent to check off your list.

    John... You are one Bad A$$!! This thing is stunning. I am sure you have to be stoked to only have a few details left to do tomorrow. Can you believe that you will be done with this bad boy ?? This model is just Awesome man and looks killer. You always knock it out of the park with your builds.

    Bob... Thanks man I appreciate it. I have been putting that pressure on myself because I know it needs to get done.
    Paul... Thanks man, I have let myself get overwhelmed with things and trying so hard to make things look perfect, which it's far away from being perfect at this point. But seems every time I feel I am making some good strides on the build something comes along and knocks me off my feet and I have to go back wards and Fix more things. That's why I just want this thing done. That would make it a nightmare for Mark huh... lol. After this I will need to plan another build or two for GSL in 2 years . I was hoping to have an update tonight but yeah not going to happen. Soon.. Very soon....

    Paul... Looking awesome my friend. I am loving what you are doing. I think I am starting to rub off on ya.... adding head gaskets an all . what material did you use. Were you able to find thin copper?? It's looking really nice with the gasket in place. and I like how you are organizing all of the parts. Looks awesome

    Paul.... Looking good buddy!! Love seeing progress come together on this build. Also glad to.hear you are getting the Milling adapter, I can't wait to see what you make with it. So I just have to ask what color did you use over black for the hard anodize?  Keep up the great work.

    John... You keep raising the bar on your builds. That seat I looking awesome Brother. Love that you flocked the inserts and the contrast that you get between the seat and inserts. Totally digging the scratch build radio and antenna. Your little touches always  makes your builds even better.
  10. Mooneyzs added a post in a topic Clear over decals - whats the trick?   

    Rob sounds to me like its the Solvents in paint that is causing the decals to clear. I had this happen to me recently and my usual thing to do is to mist the first couple of coats over the body and decals before I got into a heavier coat. Now keep in mine I am shooting Automotive Clear (typically PPG DCU2020 or Omni Plus Urethane's) over my stuff. I never had any trouble in the past with it. Except my issue recently and it was due to putting too heavy of a coat on at first for me. I would try waiting a little longer between coast to let the solvents flash off. You could also put the body under a head lamp, Now not to close so that you don't melt the body but enough that its a little warmer to help the paint dry a little quicker.

    Fabrizio... Thanks man, I appreciate it.
    Danno... I know it is. Was Just really frustrated when I posted that.
    Bob... Thanks, It's not that I haven't dealt with any problems. the problem is I am running out of time and right now I have no extra time in order to get this done in time for a show. There is less than 2 Months... actually 7 weeks to be exact.
  12. Mooneyzs added a post in a topic 1/12 tamiya williams fw14b and ferrari f190   

    I would love to have one of these 1/12 Tamiya kits. The Ferrari F189 is sweet. I don't have any of the Fujimi BMW but I do have a few Hasegawa and Tamiya race cars... Hasegawa Silk Cut Jag XJR-8, Hasegaway Castrol Jag XJR-9, Tamiya EPSO NSX - (but the Rims and Tires are missing in this one). I know I have a couple of other Group C race cars from Tamiya but would have to see which ones.

    I am at a point where I am so tired and fustrated  ove4 having these little hiccups that if I can't get it fixed the way i want then I probably won't go to DSC.

    Mike... I honestly don't know what I would do if they wanted one build. I have alot of time in it but building other one would go alot quicker then again I am trade to build some other builds besides another funny car at the moment. Well one idea would be if I was able to go visit the real car at Hendricks Motor sports and get all the reference pics I could but I know it's in Mr H's private collection so I probably wouldn't be able to even get close or see it.
    Brad... that could be done but wouldn't turn out all that great in my opinion printing it as an assembly.
    Bill... Thank you. .. it's getting closer thats for sure.
    Joe... thanks.. I am so ready to be done with this one.
    Bruce... thank you. There are moments that this build test's my patience for sure.
     
    Well guys it seems every time that I feel i am making good progress and moving forward, something happens and the build takes steps backwards... getting really tired of this happening every step of the way I feel like saying screw it and shelving it...

    Tim...Holy Schnikes my friend. That has to be one of best looking gas pedals. Looks like you already plated it too. You keep moving that bar up a few notches with every update. This weekend I think I need to pull my plating kit out and try to play around with it again because I really need to get it figured out. I have a few items that need to be plated. Hope I can have success like you did. Going to try your method for sure. Thanks for all of the inspiration and motivstion.
