      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

    I checked out the Best Model Car Parts site and it looks like they have exactly what I need.
    Thanks, Scott!

    1/25 License Plates
    Does anyone have a source for '70's license plates in 1/25 scale?  Specifically I'm looking for 1970 Texas plates.  I'd prefer them to be customizable, but I can even use ones with pre-printed numbers.  
    I've tried Acme.com and they don't have what I'm looking for.  Any other web sites or sources for aftermarket plate decals would be appreciated.
    Thanks!

    Thanks again for the kind comments.
    Dave, good catch - the insides of the exhaust pipes should not be polished aluminum!  I'll hit them with some dark grey before it hits a contest table.  Thanks for the feedback.

    Ebbro Lotus 49
    This is the Ebbro 1/20 Lotus 49.  The model represents the car Jim Clark drove to a win in the 1967 Dutch Grand Prix.  
    The kit was a bit fiddly in parts (more Hasegawa than Tamiya) but went together well overall.  I added some details to the cockpit and engine, including the Acu-Stion intake trumpets and screens, as well as some wiring and plumbing.  I also added a distributor and fuel block but they're buried between the intakes and don't show in the pictures (but I know they're there!).  Paint is Tamiya Spray Racing Green decanted and airbrushed.  The kit chrome was stripped and resprayed with Alclad Polished Aluminum.
    All comments and constructive criticism are welcome.  Thanks for looking!

    Really outstanding work, Adam.  Your detail work is great and the finish on your model is just right.
    One question.  You did a great job on painting the hubcaps around he Mercedes logo.  Did you use any special technique other than a fine brush and a steady hand? 
    Congratulations on a really nice build.

    I don't have any experience with the Jaguar, but I've built the Mercedes Gullwing and Porsche 356 Speedster and both were outstanding kits.
     
    Good job on picking up the Jag.  I've been looking for one for a while.

    Really nice build.
     
    I've had my eye on the Revell Germany Bentley Blower kit.  Is it the same as the Heller kit? 
  10. Gluebomber added a post in a topic Racing Sunbeam Tiger - Rollbar Relocated   

    Well, Guys, never let it be said I don't respond to constructive criticism.  Among all the really kind comments a couple of you correctly mentioned that the rollbar on the little Tiger should be placed closer to the driver's seat.  I must have known the bar was in the wrong place because I just used white glue to hold it in its original location.  I pulled it out, added some rear mounted supports to fill up that space where the boot was located, and this is how it turned out.  My photos still stink, but I think the model looks a lot better.
    Thanks to everyone who made the constructive comments.

    Bob, I wrestled with the placement of the rollbar.  I didn't want to use the convertible top boot so I used the bar to fill the space.  It looked like it would still provide the same protection for the driver so I went with it there.  I agree, though, the usual location would be immediately behind the seat.  Thanks for the comment.

    Racing Sunbeam Tiger - Rollbar Relocated
    I really liked the Sunbeams that were posted a few days ago and thought you might enjoy seeing a racing version of the same car.
    This is the same old AMT kit with many parts added from the AMT 289 Cobra and Replicas and Miniatures of Maryland.  Paint is Tamiya Spray Pure White decanted and airbrushed.  The decals were cobbled together from spares with the stripes and roundels cut from solid color decal sheets.
    All comments, positive and negative, are welcome.  Thanks for looking!

    That's a pretty impressive build.  Way beyond my skill set!

    Who makes the kit?
