    After leaving 13-years in radio and TV news I do outdoor advertising design and layout, ad writing and consulting.

    I too, agree the answers here pretty much sum it up. That said, I enter shows with some confidence I'll not be a winner. I build to my comfort and pleasure level and believe they stand up well on the show table. But I'll bring whatever I've got just to be supportive of the host club by adding numbers to the tables. Strive for "show quality" but don't let that inhibit you from participating in shows. Most entrants and visitors still just like seeing models.

    I looked into it once. Ultimately still too expensive.
    Though they are still perfecting a shiny finish, for now it's going to be dull. Crazyjim will NOT be Plasti Dipping.

    I think the pact has been sealed by the time that happens. Before cars are even publicly available, I've often wondered why they all seem to be of the same thought during the national auto shows. Do car makers have conventions to share ideas and solidify the future of the industry before they invest in production? A year after the jelly-bean Taurus, competitors had similar products. They can't whip up new cars from scratch in a year as a response to the success of a competitor. Seems there's got to be something else going on besides just anticipating future trends to account for synchronized sameness.

    What is this caged lair you call... how do you say... "sub-WAY?"

    Ooh, I like that idea. Especially when it comes with a testimonial. It's a big gun so I"ll still entertain other thoughts.

    Plastic Etching Dip?
    Is there something easier than sanding to roughen/prep plastic to receive paint? Ideally, I'm looking for something like a dip that might etch or dull the plastic. I'm actually considering steampunking a toy gun but don't want to sand around all the details. Need not recommend lacquer thinner.

    For my tastes, that's about as nice as I've ever seen this model get built. A home run.

    Geez Chuck, you've really got that weathering dialed in. I like your discriminating two-tone color choice too.

    Do you paint outside then bring it into a comfy air conditioned room? If so, rather than condemn the plastic, I would consider condensation and humidity. Especially after the weather most of the country has had the last two or three weeks.

    Another case in point. Ford announces thirteen F-150 colors for 2015 including four new ones.

    That's the biggest setback. Losing that feature makes almost all the other recent upgrades just window dressing. But I digress... I'm just glad this forum is here.

    My first bike that I could call my own (rather than family hand-me-downs) was a Ross Barracuda. I didn't know that until now though, because I bought it refurbished from a bike shop and all the badging was gone after a green repaint. I didn't like the gears, it was harder to get up and go when my brother's Sting Ray had great off the line speed.

    Yup. That's a honey.

    Yes, other products. I got that quote from a carpet vendor. "You can have your carpet in any color you want, as long as it's beige."
