      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

    Well Brother,     Once again you have left me searching for the right words to describe your modeling efforts.  It is very obvious that you are a rare talent when it comes to painting but to me what stands out on this one is your ability to craft this trike out of styrene stock and a few bits from the parts box. 
    Just stunning work !!!!!

    One of the rewards for not visiting the site for awhile is enjoying multiple updates to your thread Tim.
    The mockup with the motor in place on the frame is much appreciated
    Love how the frame is coming along with all the brackets and tabs being added.  The fire bottles with all their fine details, just awesome buddy!!!!!

    Hi Eric,
      This is one thread that I check to see the progress when I get on this site.  Your design skills are awesome and I love to watch you execute the build up of this car using the various technologies and materials.
