    Yeah, those magazine blurbs are as good as, or better than a win as far as I'm concerned. That carny wagon is definitely worthy.

    Done.

    I'll be the first to admit I'm not the most informed modeler, so I find this comment very hopeful. Since I do build mostly the older stuff, I just find the loss of Modelhaus leaving a cavernous hole in the after market. So sometimes I may need to be reminded there are far more resources available than I'm aware of. I hope so anyway.

    This is the biggest question mark of the future. If (when) it becomes very high def, user friendly and economical it could be a whole new boon.

    My condolences to your wife and for her suffering. But what I'm also reading is your commitment to her and to the care you give her. I find that inspiring.

    Will Slow Down of Cottage Industry Slow the Hobby?
    While the staple model kit makers soar to new heights with new offerings and repops, the staple cottage industry seems to be entering the retirement home. It's been easy to take for granted our aftermarket super heroes like the Modelhaus, Billy Gooche decals, Fred Cady and many more. But the business is taxing on the best of them and as they age, at some point they have to put their priorities on life challenges and desires bigger than the hobby. 
    Do the new industry offerings offset the cottage industry losses in terms of hobby health or does the quiet exit of after-marketers foretell the quiet exit of modelers in general? What impact is the loss of after-marketers having on your hobby involvement?

    Like most of us, I'm a big fan of his work. But this seems like the easy answer. If he could do people well, they wouldn't interfere with the photo. They would enhance it and viewers would not be less involved in his accomplishment. But at least he knows where to draw the line. I wonder if he's tried adding people at some point and didn't like the results.

    Flash is present so some of those plentiful fiddly parts will require even more time and care. Otherwise, I agree with everything Bill said. It looks so good it's always tempting to dive in if I know I have the time to afford.

    You really captured it! A lot of hard work paid off. Pretty cool.

    Okay, here's my deal...
    I've been quiet all year because I haven't decided whether any models will get built this year. That said, I've assembled a chassis from the '84 GMC Plow Truck and have been goofing with some bodies. I'll declare my entry if I feel like somethings actually going to happen. 
    The entries I've been seeing so far have been well thought out and executed. What folks have been showing so far is very exciting.
  11. Lunajammer added a post in a topic Whatever happened to the Dodge Diplomats?   

    My foggy recollection of them from the time was that they were prone to transmission failures. It was lore that made their resale values plummet. Mopar fans might refute this, but that's how I remember it.

    1. Only risk as much as you're willing to lose.
    2. Less is more.

    I LOVE that thing. I don't $25G love it, but I'm a big fan of "found objects" art.

    Now THAT's a cool idea. I know the picture you're referring to. Very cool.

    Luscious! White walls, tint. Even window gaskets. Mm-hmm.
