  1. Why do I suddenly want to run a marathon, man?
  2. My apologies to anyone who also visits the FSM forum, I'm duplicate posting here and there lately. In regards to this type of super glue, which I get at Hobby Lobby: I'm sure that others have had issues with the glue drying up long before the bottle is empty, or with glue amassing at the tip, causing the lid to not go back on properly, or with the tip itself getting clogged, etc. Well, I have been doing the following basic things to prevent this and they're working for me: 1) After every use (EVERY use, each time you squeeze a dollop out), wipe the tip with a paper towel and stick the cap back on. If you go back later and the tip is clogged, 2) Use a pin vise to drill through the clog. Repeat 1 and 2 over and over again. I have had zero issues with the bottle shown so far. The last one I used was a disaster. Hope this helps!
  3. Hi all, Just a quick post to let you know that Round 2 recently released a 2010 Camaro with very flashy Hot Wheels graphics (that sucked me right in). I grabbed one yesterday and after washing the parts, I turned my attention towards starting it today and suddenly realized my kit had no seats or tires (basically the vinyl parts). I went back to Hobby Lobby and exchanged it, but before leaving, opened the replacement kit. You guessed it - no seats or tires! Round 2 is sending me the missing parts. Just be aware that if you buy the kit - which is a curbside - you may encounter the same problem.
  4. It even has a tiny Mini Cooper engine under the hood!
  5. I just finished this yesterday. What a fun little kit.
  6. Didn't they send you, Baby, and Otis to jail??
  7. Is it white, pearl white, or blue-green? Your help is appreciated.
  8. I agree Bob. I'm improving with each new build. I never worry about achieving perfection, I build mainly to please myself. Any nice words from fellow builders is just a bonus!
  9. Jim is correct - the kit had some extra parts that must go to one of the Emhar Mk1-4 tanks. I decided to place it for some visual interest and to make it look like a damaged panel on the field.
  10. Thanks Jim! I love WWI kits the most. Those early tanks were wild - some were just basically a metal geometrical shape on tracks and yet, I can appreciate them because those innovations were what led to the incredibly advanced armor that we have now. That's also why I like 70's F1 cars the most. It was a "Let's put this on the car and see what works" mentality, and it made for some wild and beautiful cars. Come on, a six wheeler? Great stuff!!!
  11. I have really grown to love military modeling lately and I particularly like the weathering process. This was my first attempt at a larger scale weathering/diorama scene and I'm happy with the results. The kit is an old Emhar kit and it is not quite up to snuff when compared to today's kits, but I do think it builds into a nice replica.
  12. If anyone is interested, the kits were painted with Model Master Hugger Orange lacquer spray. When I decided to use it, I didn't even realize that it's a Chevy color, I thought it was a Mopar color, but didn't care either way. I had two cans that were degrading a bit at the bottom (this seems to be an issue with some MM lacquer cans) and when I realized they were still usable, I figured this was a good opportunity to empty them out!
