      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

    Two Tone Paint job using Testors Gloss?
    Hi there I'm still a bit of a noob with the modeling. I was wondering can testors gloss spray cans be used to get an effective two tone paint job (i.e. petty Pontiac). I already know testors gloss isn't a great paint to begin with. Also would be better to spray one color over the whole body then mask off and lay the secondary color. Or mask off the stripes, lay down the blue, then mask the blue, then lay down the red.

    I like it, is that Go Green model masters paint? Also what did you do for the rear tailight, did you just paint red over the decal?

    Is there a book in print for step by step building?
    Now I can't seem to find any books on the subject at Borders or Barnes and Noble on modeling. I checked out some books at my library, but those seem to be advanced skills to learn to a modeler that already has the basic knowledge. My question is there a book out there that is in print for the basic knowledge on everything, esp spraying a model, sanding the painted model, and finishing kit. Basically like a "For Dummies" type book. Any help on this would be great appreciated.
