      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

    I have mostly used an old ( like early 1980s) Paasche H model, single action external mix and a Testors Double action internal mix. I actually prefer the Paasche and use it the most. An old friend of mine uses a professional Touch up gun for his models. I used the old spare tire adapter for the longest time until I purchased a Badger compressor.
    I actually have had great results with spray bombs. You just need to learn the best way to spray them.

    Depends on the 1:1 scale your are following some could be wider some narrower. But good rule of thumb is ..20 half round. and the .20 x .10 for the seams.

    Oh, maybe I'll build a 2005 Camaro, Oh wait they weren't built that year.  not continuously built for 50 years like the Corvette. but hey a CBP is cool. Maybe once I finish my Heartland contest builds I will break out one of my Camaro projects. I have an old photo of a neighbors 73 Camaro I always wanted to recreate.

    Well as normal I have heard from the Ohio State patrol. "They are going to build a car to stop all of you scoff laws." 
    I am just posting for them. it is not me. They told me it is some kind of old Plymouth they dug up.

    I never realized that my sleeperball was so popular. I did enjoy running it. I have a show projects going right now but it is still early. The official start isn't for a couple weeks now.

    Let's think about the Cannonball run 2017 theme.
    With the Aussieball coming to an end shortly. It is time to start thinking about 2017. ( yeah, it is almost here)  So let's start throwing ideas around for the theme for 2017 Cannonball. Do we want to go back to the original Cannonball Run, anything goes, no holds bared. Do we want to have a year limitation or a certain country ( Like the Aussieball) or ????? Let's here it.

    How to strain small quanities of paint
    I am wanting to strain some paint. it will be from a small bottle to the air brush bottle. Anyone know the best way. I am trying to paint a hood and it keeps getting contaminates in the finish. I am using an old ( circa 1980s) Paasche H model. 
    Thanks for the help
