    Comment numbers are no more a measure of popularity than it is at a model show. A lot of people look at my models at shows but I don't expect many of them to comment. Doesn't mean they don't appreciate seeing them and it doesn't bother me being just a face in the crowd. Same on this forum.

    It's like belching. Not polite, not invited, but no high crime either. Meh.

    Glad I got the chance to meet you Steve. Wish I knew more forum members on sight so I could say hello. 
    It was a busy room for sure, I'll see if I can post some pics in the next couple days. I neglected to notice one of my entries was singled out for magazine pics. How stupid. Since I'm not a national caliber builder, getting in the mags is my win. Would've been my 4th straight year, but so be it.

    Loved Major Matt Mason. Too bad the wire armature broke after lots of fun, like most of those type of toys (Gumby anyone?). Brother and I had the MMM space crawler. That was pretty durable.

    And the best way to take that to the next level was to make it so you could eat them. How about the Incredible Edibles? Friend had it, but nobody dared actually eat them. They still kind of smelled like the Creeple Peeple.

    The styling is quite striking. I love your vision and I'll have to think about that for a bit.

    My brother and I had this. Bake up your own vulcanized rubber Jag body using colored goop. Burn dangers, fire hazards, toxins, it was great to be a kid back then.

    Flowers.

    The size of your window determines whether your pic is squished. Harry, I expect you have a pretty good screen so if you make your view window wider (full size?) it un-squishes. Small screens I'm not sure about. I can slide between squished and unsquished.
    Such a lovely model Steven. I hope you can bring some of your stuff to NNL North in Bloomington in two weeks. I'd like to see them.

    It looks good as it sits for off-tar roads, but for off-road more heigh might be helpful. If you're ambitious you could grab a Daisy Dukes Jeep CJ-5 and extend the chassis a scale 2 or 3-inches to put under your Stratos.

    You've mastered some techniques that have taken others a lifetime to learn. Superb!
    Gotta ask, how did you do the rust, hairspray technique? Doesn't look like salt or sandpaper only.

    Yup. I believe it. Your choices all seem probable. I like it.

    Off the charts! You don't find many models with this much zing! Well done my friend.
  14. Lunajammer added a post in a topic 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Club Victoria. Class of 1957.   

    Superb. So crisp and clean.

    A little caution about beading wire... Some are heavy on the vinyl and thin on wire and are not as obedient to the demands of modeling. If possible, make sure you grab an end you can bend and see if it holds the bend the way you expect.
