  1. Like it interesting project. Great start.
  2. Bill, Would using a sealer prevent any interactions between paint and plastic. It's my understanding sealers are for creating a barrier so that new paint won't react with older paint on a car. Just curious with your experience on sealers. Do you have any recommendations or caveats using it? Thanks Bob
  3. My mom and sister had planned to come and visit me in Santa Clara. My dad had Parkinsons and my mom was primary care giver. She had someone who could help watch him for a couple of days so she could get a break. I was concerned that Marshall law would be declared and they would get stuck in the bay area. They ended up changing their plans. We must not forget.
  4. I'm looking forward to the Coke themed borg cube. We are the borg. You will drink coke and will will plaster your planet with coke signs. Resistence is futile!
  5. Definitely a day for us to remember. A day that changed our lives forever.
  6. Great look on the truck. Colors look great. Is the graphic on the door a decal?
  7. Bill great tip on using different colors of primer. One of those why didn't I think of that tips. Have you gotten the paint issue fixed on the chassis?
  8. Bill I agree 100%. We could be lazy and have a like button. But what do you like about the build. We need to take a little time for meaningful communication. Its what the forum is all about.

  10. Looking forward to seeing this build. I agree I hated those stupid donut box kits. Couldn't stack them and in a lot of cases the boxes weren't glued together well either.
  11. The OP posted the question of offering meaningless praise or constructive criticism. There have been many comments that many are hesitant to offer constructive criticism bbecuase of bad experiences in the past. Thus we end up with lots of nice model comments for mediocre models being posted or no comments at all. This is not a good thing for anyone. The forum is for sharing ideas and techniques. This all boils down to poor communication. The poster needs to say they desire critical feedback so those commenting don't feel like they are walking into a mine field. If the poster hasn't make the effort to comment on an aspect of the model presented. It provides meaningful feedback.
  12. I agree the white will look the best.
  13. Nicely done. Great job of selecting parts. The weathering is perfect.
  14. Yes its important to praise beginners work. But it really needs to be meaningful encouragement. I have yet to see anything posted here done so poorly so bad you can't find anything to make a positive comment. For those who want and are capable will improve with positive feedback.
  15. That engine is amazing. Is it 25th scale? What printer are you using and what is the printer cost.? How much does it cost to print the engine. What software are you using to create the engine?
