    I guess you can't reply if it has agreen pin. I did not realize it, So, my reply would have addressed the Photbucket issue.
    If they think I'm going to pay to view members photos they are crazy, but, it is not a good feeling to be blocked ouy from viewing them.
    I just tried to update my profile and could not find the 3rd party hosting update.

    Can't see photos either.

    Yep, I just got an email from the Flex Seal Co. They said they have not tested it for mold making.
    But I know you guys are right about it not working.

    Flex Seal
    I might have missed this but, has anyone tried to use Flex Seal as mold compound. In the adds I see all over television the shill puts it in a cake pan and it comes out solid piece of rubber. I wonder what you'd use as a release agent.

    Ace you are correct, that's why I noted "don't exist" !. The link Fat Brian mentioned, is the closest I've come to loader tires and rims in all my searches.
    I have some skills in design and have made some 3d printed items. I have submitted track shoe designs in the past but I fail at the price point.
    Oh well I guess it's more of it don't exist. Thanks guys

    Things I Want don't exist
    Yeah things I want. One, why is it that when a new tire is made, whether resin or rubber, a wheel rim is not also made to fit it.
    Too many new tires are made that don't recommend a corresponding rim that will fit.
    Two; Why are there no farm tractor tires made in resin?
    And I particularly would like to see crawler track shoes and earth mover tires and rims.
    Like the ones on loaders and excavators. I know these may be items not readily sold but at least they should be offered by casters, don't you think?
    I believe many scratch builders would buy them, but presently these thing aren't offered at all, anywhere.

    I've never been good at math,L.O.L. So, it's still really trial and error to get the best results. Does the type or model of airbrush matter? I have a well used Badger Crescendo, not ratty but vintage, any thoughts on this. I haven't started my use of craft paint experience. Comments

    Got the parts yesterday, I can't seem to get a good picture of them though. Must be my camera, not so good I guess, but. I will say they are extremely delicate and extremely detailed pieces.
    I may have trouble using them, they are so small !. Maybe they'll look good assembled and painted. I will try to post pics when I use them.

    One More Craft Paint Question
    I've read enough information about craft paints to go ahead and try it out, but I have one question that I never saw an answer to.
    How much to make?. Do I just make it in single batches, like what fits in a single paint bottle, or can I mix up a whole bottle  for use anytime?
    If mixing a 50/50 batch and, my math is correct, if I mix a 2 oz. bottle of craft paint with 1 oz. of Pledge as thinner, I get a 3 oz. bottle of paint
    right?. Comments

    I will try, not great with a camera. Thanks

    So, About Craft Store paint
    Thin with Pledge huh. Never thought of that. Those craft paint colors are in some wild, and different colors not available through regular channels, and perfect for a WIP I now have on the bench.
    I read that post, Paint Help, and it answered some of my questions accept this one. If I chose to use a metallic color such as Copper, do I have to use a colored undercoat like Alcad paints?

    Sent in an order for these 3d printed ones and also got some chain binders. Getting them in the mail in Feb., takes some time to print I guess.
  14. raildogg added a post in a topic Glad Hands?   

    I like the 3d printed stuff. Getting some soon. Thanks guys
