      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

    Called on Monday and asked for resend of #154....Came in the mail this morning.

    Great issue...just wish they all came so nice and crisp with no torn pages or foldovers.

    Thank you Sherri & Bell Publishing

    I stand corrected.......never tried 'cheap hardware store lacquer thinner' with enamel paint. Learn something new every day.

    I have read some of the posts in this thread but I didn't see if you primered the spoon before spraying the Enamel paint/lacquer thinner. Lacquer/thinner will eat (craze) plastic. I would suggest lacquer thinner with lacquer paint only. Enamel and lacquer don't mix well. Don't mix different products; It's asking for trouble. They say you don't need primer with the new synthetic lacquer but I primer no matter what kind of paint I use. Better safe than sorry. Makes flaws in the body stand out so they can be fixed before finish paint.

    Been wanting to duplicate in scale the 4 bay Garage I worked in in the mid 60's. It will be no where as detailed as this one. Love the lift. The lighting is cool. Brickwork is great as is the plumbing.
    Don't know why but I feel like working on my Dio Project a little tonight. It's all your fault. LOL

  10. Chaz added a post in a topic How long have you been modeling?   

    I did the math...I have been building model cars for 55 years. My first was a 191? Franklin Touring Car by Gowlin (sp) I think.

    Next was a customized JoHan Chrysler. Bodywork done with plaster of paris----cracked all to hello as you can guess. when I went into the USAF I had a cube mate that built contest models. I was really hooked then. layed off for a few years till my kids got old enough to watch me Help them build. One of my sons is an avid model builder now. guess something rubbed ogg.
