      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

    Very nice lookin' build on that Model A Coupe Neil, and great color choice also.
  2. High octane added a post in a topic What did you get rid off today?   

    I've been "thinnin' the herd" for the last few years and hopefully by next year I'll be where I want to be as far as unbuilt model kits go. Sometimes at least for me its been hard to choose which kits stay and which kits go, as I bought almost all of them with the intention of building them someday. As I get older and see that I'm not crankin' out built kits like I had hope to, I also see that my expectations shouldn't be so high as far as finishing X number of model kits in the future either.

    Nice build on that engine. It's been since 1999 since I've been on a cog railway up to Pikes Peak.

    Hmmm, I've driven Chevy trucks for almost 40 years and they've been pretty reliable to me. I needed a change and last year bought an F-150, and so far I'm likin' the change. While GMC advertises their trucks as "professional grade" that's a joke as I've worked on many construction jobs and have seen hundreds of trucks belonging to the workers or contractors. Most all of them were either Ford or Chevy trucks.

    I also have a swap meet comin' up this weekend, and while I don't really need anything, who knows? Maybe I'll even get rid of a couple of JoHan kits that day also.

    Frustrated? When someone picks up the bill, it's their choice and not anyone else s. Nice job on that build John, as I just love dem Mopars!
  7. High octane added a post in a topic The 1/24 Scale History Story?   

    I'm with you Erik, as while I didn't really care for 1/24th scale several years ago, today it makes no difference to me. I have some Danbury and Franklin Mint cars that are in 1/24th scale and they are beautiful. I'm currently workin' on a 1/24 scale kit, and it looks like there'll be more of my builds in that scale in the future.
  8. High octane added a post in a topic Whoops! Heat and plastic, not a good mix.   

    Over the years I let my painted bodies "air dry" and it works great. No space needed for a dehydrator, no cost of a dehydrator, nothing to plug in, no temperature settings, etc. Yeah you might say I'm a bit "old fashioned," but it works for me.

    I've seen them at the Jewel stores 'bout this time for the last few years now.

    Thanks for the reminder, as I'll have to get some.
  11. High octane added a post in a topic Winter Weather   

    Don't let our current weather conditions fool you, as we have plenty of time to get "socked" with that white stuff and you'll see that the rodent knows what he's talkin' 'bout.
  12. High octane added a post in a topic Winter Weather   

    Back in '03 I "flat out" told a dealer/salesperson that he or I don't know anybody who drives in some of those places in those TV commercials. Where I live they use "snow plows"  to move the snow and allow traffic to flow.
  13. High octane added a post in a topic Anyone from Wisconsin?   

    For those livin' in southern Wisconsin and care to venture into Illinois, there is a great model car swap meet this Sunday the 26th at the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton, Illinois from 9 a.m. 'til 2 p.m. and the admission is still only 5 bucks.

    I recently got some nice under hood decals from Speedway Decals and they look great. I'm hopin' to use them soon.

    Maybe Chief Joseph at Fireball Designs can help you out on that decal?
