  1. any good model stores within 2 or so hours of nj

    I know there is Tech Toys which is not far from the NNL East venue. I believe an RC shop but it also has a large model selection. Haven't been there in awhile but have recently seen someone recommending in another forum/Facebook (I forget where exactly).
  2. Sorry we won't be seeing you there, Brian. Maybe next year.
  3. Issue #205

    Well, I've pretty much given up hope of seeing issue #205. Other people in our province received theirs around March 21st. Here we are almost a month later and no magazine so I guess someone in the post office really likes MCM.
  4. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    Thanks for passing on this press release, Brett.
  5. Positives to come from the Revell Deal?

    I don't necessarily have the pitchfork out for the germans but I agree with James as he said in his video that they were after Revell Germany and since the price was so low, they took the whole package. To me they did not want the extra expense so let's close down Revell USA as quick as we can (as in even before the deal is finalized). No waiting to have the deal finalized and then review what we have and then determine who stays and who goes. I agree we'll have to see what happens, hopefully, something good but it's a funny way to show you're at all interested in the North American market.
  6. Positives to come from the Revell Deal?

    That's true, Jonathan, the ink hasn't dried yet and sale isn't final yet but they went and shut down Revell USA without even waiting for dry ink or finalized sale. To me that's what they care about the North American market..... Not at all....
  7. 25 Oldsmobile Roadster - finished ( or nearly!)

    Very sharp! Love seeing this era of car being built up as she may have been in the day. Kudos!
  8. What Pleased You Today!

    Shorts and flip flops in Alberta? We got a good 6" of snow today. Spent an hour out with the snowblower. Of course for me it has to be 24 degrees before I would worry about shorts or sandals. 😀
  9. Buying my first airbrush Questions.

    David, unfortunately there is no "best choice". An airbrush is like any tool. It's what you get comfortable with. A lot of people over time end up with 2 or more airbrushes depending on what they're using them for, what they find comfortable to use etc. Some like the front trigger styles while others like the top control. People do great work with a Paasche H which is a simple single action suction airbrush. Others prefer the more complicated but more versatile gravity feed double action brushes. Suction feeds need slightly more air pressure to draw up the paint. If you're just starting a Paasche H would be a great place to start and guys like Donn Yost & Doctor Cranky still use them in their work.
  10. New items? Care to share?
  11. Hobbico - BANKRUPT!

    Apparently Friday the 13th was a bad omen! 😱Sad for the Revell USA employees . Terminated with no notice so it would seem.
  12. NNL East Roll Call! Who's going?? :)

    Looking forward to as usual. Always a great time. Day goes by really quick between shopping, talking to folks and admiring and taking pictures of as many of the great models as I can.
  13. Lumpy's 40 Ford

    That's what I thought. I remembered that Chevy sedan as having a bad engine or something and that's why he eventually ended up with the convertible.
  14. Lumpy's 40 Ford

    I can still see Lumpy drumming on his steering wheel going zooma zooma zooma.... Didn't Wally end up with a ratty 53 or 54 Chevy convertible?
  15. Yep! Can hardly wait. Hope to see you there.
