      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

    Brodie, I like my Mopars but I'm not a true engine tech person... would a SBC intake serve the purpose?  I have no idea about the differences between intake runners, etc.  I have never seen the real parts side-by-side to be able to compare.

    Continental Kit for 56 Ford
    I'm looking for a continental kit for the AMT '56 Ford.  Adaptable styrene from a kit would be OK (or any suggestions in resin, too- already posted there).  Thanks in advance.

    Continental kit
    I'm looking for a continental kit that I can use on the AMT "56 Ford.  If nit resin, styrene would be ok.  Any suggestions would be welcome.  Thanks.

    A mid -90s issue of the Monogram P-38, in 1/48 scale, with the addition of the warp nacelles from an AMT/Ertl(?) USS Enterprise.  Not sure of what color it will be, and a stand of some sort is a must.

    Thanks, Rich.  I hope you actually get to see this one in person one day.  All is well here; hope the same goes for y'all up there.

    Sorry to take so long to get back, but it is that time of year.  Yeah, it is taking me a while for this one, but I want to get it "right"(at least in my head).  The bed cover and rear fenders have rolled beads that I created with an empty ball point pen cartridge.  The rust was done using inexpensive pastels over Testors Burnt Metal Metalizer.  I use that line often; all of the metallic finishes are Metalizers, either sprayed or brushed on.  Thanks for the compliments.

    '34 Ford Altered
    Lindberg '34 Ford with AMT/Ertl 312 y-block.  Test fitting at this point.  Only 7 original kit parts used; the rest is sourced from my parts box, scrounged from my kit stash, aftermarket photoetched or fabricated.  Trying to have it done for the Hope it Don't Snow contest in Spartanburg in January.

    Clearly Scale products
    Does anyone have any experience with the products from Clearly Scale?  I am considering getting some stuff(Hemi, back halfs...) but I would like to hear from previous customers first.  Thanks

  12. johnbuzzed added a post in a topic YOUR thoughts on Poison Pinto, Rat Vega and The Vega Mini-Van.   

    Didn't like them when I was younger, don't like them now.  I can remember buying just two Tom Daniels kits- the Red Baron when it was first released, and (just last year) one of the many reissues of the Badman, just for the gasser-style parts.  
  13. johnbuzzed added a post in a topic how to make black interiors nice   

    Use different brands, types (acrylic v enamel) and shades (aircraft interior black, flat black, grimy black, etc- there are so many to choose) and finishes (gloss, semi-gloss, matte or flat) for the surfaces that you will paint.  If you want to simulate carpeting, embossing powder works better than flock.  Of course, that's just my opinion.
  14. johnbuzzed added a post in a topic AMT '66 Nova info?   

    Use Elmer's (white) glue to temporarily secure the headers, then see how things fit.  No problem if they pop off as the white glue can be peeled off the plastic.
  15. johnbuzzed added a post in a topic Why go to all the trouble of a nostalgia look and leave the Edelbrock sticker on the carb ?   

    You have some radical thoughts there, Mike.  I like that.  I like to think that those of us who do appreciate cars do so as not just mechanical devices used (primarily) for transportation, but also as works of art.  "Art, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder".  Then again, maybe the builder just forgot to remove the sticker.  Stuff like that does happen in real life.  Should it really matter?
