    A LOT of people keep stuff they don't need or will never use anymore. I myself try to eliminate as much junk as I can as we live in a smaller house, however I'm sure that if I look again and more often that I could find even more stuff to get rid of. I need to get off my butt and get rid of some car parts as well.

    I've driven Chevy trucks for almost 40 years, and this year I was ready for a change. Bought a new F-150 and I'm quite happy with it so far.

    I was able to get my Red Baron kit at a club meeting, still sealed and in the collector tin for $15, and it came out rather nice.

    Hmmm, interesting idea however I've been using my Xacto knife for years and it seems to work great for me. No need to add another tool to my bench.

    A LOT of blame for the demise of the Toledo swap meet comes directly from the internet. Now vendors don't spend the money for gas, hotels, meals, tables, when they can sell on the internet therefore cutting their expenses way back. Back in the early 2000's the place was jammed with vendors, ten years later not so much.

    Michael, you can use BMF after you've painted & cleared the body, or many modelers are now using the BMF under the primer and using some lacquer thinner on a Q-tip to remove the primer and colors after each coat. While I've never tried this method, I will be this fall as I've seen the results from other builders and it looks great.

    Thanks again guys as I needed those buckets for an upcoming build. I talked to Norm on the phone this morning and sent him a check also.

    I've used Spaz-Stix Mirror Chrome spray on both plastic and resin parts with great results. I recently sold my air brushes and compressor since I haven't used it in many years. I like the convenience of "rattle cans," and I can get a good finish also.

    Wow, that is awesome as it's been awhile since I saw a pin stripper at work.

    Wow Mike, those are EXACTLY what I need as I'm missing a bucket seat like this. I'll have to call Norm today, and thanks!
