  1. High octane added a post in a topic Earth, Wind and Fire, Maurice White RIP   

    Yes, I saw that on the news last night. It's called the "balance of nature" as many people die to make room for babies coming into the world.
  2. High octane added a post in a topic Guys happy Chinese new year!   

    A Happy New Year to you.
  3. High octane added a post in a topic To clear or not to clear over BMF???   

    I did my first BMF job in the early 80's and it still looks good today on this El Camino..................................

  4. High octane added a post in a topic Michael Schumacher in a coma after a ski accident   

    That's not good news about Michael Schumacher, and I'm glad that I've recovered from several skiing accidents in the past. Since then its been NO more skiing for me.
  5. High octane added a post in a topic 3D printed parts?   

    I must be a dinosaur, but I've been building plastic model kits since the mid-'50's and have enjoyed the hobby.
    I don't think that I'll ever be interested in 3-D printed parts. The only thing I need is more motivation to finish more kits per year.
  6. High octane added a post in a topic ......She said "Yes'   

    Howz her airbrushing skills? LOL! Congrats and good luck, as I've known several couples on their "second time" around and they seem to be doin' well.

    The Char Grilled Maxwell Street Style Polish can be had at Portillo's for only $4.09 + tax. Enjoy!
  8. High octane added a post in a topic 1/18 Collection pictures   

    Very impressive collection Lance, and if I ever get out your way I'd like to see your cars.
  9. High octane added a post in a topic What Pleased You Today!   

    What pleased me today is that we're getting rain instead of that "white stuff."
  10. High octane added a post in a topic ´55 Chevy   

    What a  really nice clean build you did on that '55 Chevy, very nice!
  11. High octane added a post in a topic Best Airbrush Needle Size for Tamiya Acrylics/Lacquers   

    While I don't use an air-brush anymore, about the junk body to practice on, you can always use an empty plastic water bottle to practice painting. Try it.
  12. High octane added a post in a topic Exhaust megaphone   

    The megaphone probably wouldn't be that hard to make from Evergreen plastic tubing either. Try it.
  13. High octane added a post in a topic Will we see a new '63 Plymouth?   

    A few years ago the JoHan '63 Plymouths used to be plentiful at local swap meets. I know that I have one somewhere in my "stash."
  14. High octane added a post in a topic good way to mix M.M. and testors paints   

    I use a toothpick to stir my bottled paints, as with a BB you shake it and get paint all over the lid. When the paint dries on the lid, it makes it hard to open the bottle the next time.

    Yeah I'm gonna hafta get a few of those Paczkis next week myself. I can afford to gain a few pounds, that's why I sometimes get a banana split for lunch or dinner for a change of pace.
