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
Every step of this is a pleasant surprise. Among the finest work I think I've seen on this forum. And your photography is fantastic, really helps accentuate your work. All of it is worthy of publication.
Pretty cool stuff going here. I enjoy seeing what all you knuckleheads are crafting. I've done nothing on the Vette in a month. My bench has been occupied with building three adult Pinewood Derby cars for the annual VFW Derby for the Vets, a benefit that raises money for special requests from the local VA hospital. I'll be updating this thread after this weekend. My GF wants to enter a car and asked me to carve a dog. Challenging but so far so good.
I was at a show this weekend in a rural community where the kids got to make-&-take this Snap Tite Fire Truck. They were surprisingly popular. The kids were able to finish it during the show and five local volunteer fire departments built them in advance as a mini-competition between them. People's choice selected the best truck of the five departments. Might be worth a try with your grandson and they look pretty good built up.
Yes Matija, Fargo and John Carpenter's The Thing. Both close to my heart and ones I have a personal connection to. Fargo, for obvious reasons (check my locator) and because half of it was filmed around here. Kristin Rudrud, who plays the kidnapped wife, still lives here and has been a client of mine. The Thing, because the opening sequences (with the dog) were filmed on the Juneau Ice Field the year I lived in Juneau, AK. The crew stayed at the hotel about four blocks from my house. They chose Juneau because of moderate temps and high likelihood of overcast. But after arrival we got about ten days of lovely sunny weather and the crew got stuck waiting for a cloudy day. The best they got was a hazy day, so they filmed and doctored more overcast in post production. Plus I love the story and for a horror story, there aren't a lot of cheap, contrived plot points.
Of those in the photo, the Volare is the least common/most interesting to me. Looks like you want to build a mopar, but if it doesn't have to be, I'd pick something outside the usual muscle car lineup.
Okay, now this one has to be my favorite candidate for Most Obscure and unlikely 1/25 kit auto accessory. I'd love to have been a fly on the wall of the meeting where someone said, "...and lets tool up a cool fireplace." "That's good Roger, dam good."
