      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

    There were a whole bunch of "What If the kit manufacturers made these models" kit boxes done by someone back in the 90's/early 2000's. It was just for fun. I'm sure at the time no one thought in 10-20 years people surfing the web would be finding these pics and think they were real kits. There were boxes for the 55 Buick from Highway Patrol, the 67 Galaxie from Car Salesmen (?) etc.

    Bob usually recommends medium temp lacquer thinner. It will need to be thinned 100% or more. You will need to experiment some with a spare body or spoons. Of course automotive primer will need to be laid down first.

    Very cool to have some familiarity with a car in contention for a win like that. Some gorgeous automobiles there. I'd have to go with the 34 Ford Phaeton.

    Actually I've been watching all week and Steve and Mike have mentioned model kits available of certain cars quite a bit. I believe Steve even mentioned the new Bronco kit at one point. I've noticed a couple of wrong references to kit manufacturer but when you're trying to get facts out that fast it's bound to happen.

    Pete has a valid point. There is also this. Even without a website or pics or a Facebook page, Norm is kept extremely busy and has not attended events as a vendor since he was so far behind in fulfilling orders that he felt it wasn't fair to vend at a show when he had customers waiting a couple of months for orders. If you're that busy already without it, who needs a website?

    Looks pretty cool to me. Not sure exactly what colour it is due to lighting though. Is it purple or grey?
  7. peter31a added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    Cool! Thanks for the info.

    James, what is that C1 pickup trans kit for? Can't quite read it. Thanks.

    Beautiful work on the 30 Ford Coupe. Love the 6 cyl in there. By decals I assume you mean on the tires?

     Goes to show what I know. I just went by the fact that there is a ton of cool stuff that the manufacturers do that never make it to our shores. This seemed like one of them. Very cool little car.

    Very cool looking little car. I doubt we'll see them this side of the Atlantic though.
  12. peter31a added a post in a topic Last Day at Work..   

    Geez, I couldn't get out of grocery shopping while I was working, I sure can't get out of it now. The one downside is that I have not been disciplined enough to keep with an exercise routine. That will be number one New Years resolution. I was always relatively disciplined at work but I'm like a cranky old teenager now not wanting to do things I don't want to do. I acknowledge that that has to change come the new year when the novelty of being retired has worn off. Unfortunately I'm one of those people who's content to sit 16 hours a day and then go to bed. For my own good that needs to change.

    Being the unmanly emotional type the last day was hard. But I haven't missed it since. As I sit here the wind is howling and I can't see the neighbours house for the snow blowing by and I DON'T HAVE TO GO OUT IN IT! It's beautiful! There are weeks where I don't leave the house. It's great! No, go here, do that and what took you so long etc etc. I love it!

    Every contest is different, Mark but coatings are allowed so I would thinking tinting chrome would be alright. Sanding the tires would pretty much be expected I would think as it's all part of doing a clean build.

    Nope, it was too bad so sad, old timer. (The poor kid didn't say that but that was basically the message. No smart phone, no coupon.)
