      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

    BIGTRUCK is a good person to deal with.

    I wrap a used blade in masking tape and put it in the trash, done!
  3. High octane added a post in a topic Illegal Street Racing..   

    A lot of my "street racing" was not in isolated locations as I had lived in Chicago at the time, however back in the mid-60's there was a LOT less vehicles on the streets back then, and the drivers were a LOT more courteous than they are today. Also there were a lot less pedestrians back then and they weren't busy on their cell/iPhones either.

    Did you spray the decal sheet with a couple light coats of clear lacquer, and let it dry before using them? It may work, especially with older decal sheets.

    Wow, that's a scary verdict. I've done some street racing back-in-the-day and got caught a couple of times also. Just last summer I had a great opportunity to blow-the-doors-off a '55 Chevy as we were both side by side at a light, however now they also tow away your car too. Not my car! Besides, I've been there and done that, even got stopped for drag racing in downtown Chicago one night also when racing against a Corvette from Texas. Ah yes, the good old days.

    An old fart? Well you make a good point there, and I'm happy and lucky to have reached my age as a lot of people are less fortunate.

    Close enough is good for me as well. After all, how much of the engine do we really see???
  8. High octane added a post in a topic Dodge Dart   

    An armload of stuff? Not really but I had a great time seeing a lot of old friends, I was able to sell a kit that I had brought, and I got some great Hot Wheels for my grandson. Afterwards I went to lunch with some great friends to the Tilted Kilt.

    is that the one I saw Brian holding in his hands today at the Du Page show?

    That worked great Steve, and thanks!
  11. High octane added a post in a topic Revell 30 Model A Ford Production Halted?   

    Revell can put off production for as long as they want as I haven't even opened my '29 Model A Roadster or '30 Model A Coupe kits as of yet. I have other things to build.
  12. High octane added a post in a topic Let's hear it ILLINOIS modelers   

    It was good to see BigTruck Ken at the Du Page show today along with Dean Milano, and many other guys I've known over the years. Didn't find anything interesting for my "stash" but I did pick up some Hot Wheels for my grandson. Then went to the Tilted Kilt with the guys for lunch.

    Testors make a Hemi Orange in spray cans.
  14. High octane added a post in a topic Dodge Dart   

    That Dart looks really nice Chris and I like the bronze metallic color also. I have three cans of that paint in my stash, guess I'll have to paint a Mopar  that color soon. I just love dem Mopars!

    I saw Ed Sexton from Revell this morning at a local swap meet, and I didn't even bother to ask him 'bout the '29 Roadster and '30 Model A Coupe. One vendor had a '30 Coupe kit and was open to offers. I guess someone one the bay is selling one for $100 and that's not the "asking" price from what I've heard.
