      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 am working on this kit now, with the photo-etch kit also. The kit has 206 parts and the phot-etch has another 62 parts. I don't really care about the roof line, I feel it is the building of the model is the thing and what can be done to the kit.

  6. Bassbison added a post in a topic Need some tips for my first attempt at P/E   

    One item I use to buy me time when working with PE is Future.Use guitar wire as in a hi 'E' works to dab small amounts and when it drys it pull the PE parts closer no build up or gap. Try this with any small parts also.

    I have been using Future on my builds.And how I do it is DIP the whole body that is and only the body. Just like the 1/1. I'll paint, apply the decales and even the chrome,then I dip it in the Future sit to dry on some paper towels and cover lit dry for 12-24 hrs.it work very wall this way it is clean and fast,pour the what is lift back in the bottle.

  11. Bassbison added a post in a topic Another FUTURE question...   

    Greetings, how about doing like the big guys the 1/1 guys? Dipping the whole body into future after decaling? It has worked for me of couse before assembly. Clear class window are done this way. Try this and let me know how you do. By the way you must cover the item soon after being dipped. You know dust and stuff in the air.
