    Hey the end result speaks for itself becuase of a few self righteuos exoerts that think they can say in a heavy handed fashion because they are right I seriouly doubt we are going to see many test shots. Again its not the message its the way its been handled. However that point sems to be lost.

    Luc you've nailed it. As usual the few have ruined it for the many. If you look at recent threads of new releases there is a common theme. There seems to be a competition to point out every error with a the intensity of a shark feeding frenzy.   This behavior nullifies any benefits of providing test shots for our review. This is unfortunate because there are some very knowledgeable people here that can provide useful feedback. However they need to consider the old adage its not what you say its how you say it.

    Tim my question regarding the seams would be for building a contest model box stack or for anotter catagory which would require that seam to be filled.
    Your kitbash sounds like a great project.
    Looking forward to seeing it.

    Tim the way the filler for the wheel well fillers is designed you end up with a seam on the fender wells that doesn't exist on the actual cars. The same issue exists 8n the 32 fords. Do you see an easy way to get  rid of that seam?

    For feedback to be useful the positives and negatives need to be acknowledged.  Around here the negatives are beat to death with no mention of what is right.  When that happens it ceases to be positive criticism and will more than likely ignored. It becomes tiresome when all youehear is how you've screwed up..

    I use a business card as a squeegee.  Makes it easy to get thin coats.

    I think its more than have gotten tired of everything being picked apart with the a non contructive agenda. We go through the same litney for each new realease with the negatives over shadowing the postives and in most cases the positives not even being acknowledged.  It gets real old for everyone.

    Lee you got it. Its even more ludicrous when you realze we are talking about something being off several hundredths of and inch!!

     Horsepower love the idea although   I wish you had suggested it in a pm. It would be fun to watch those whose only purpose is to find things to complain about make fools of themselves.
