    Mike I had an eBay/Paypal payment failure like you described.  I was the buyer and it would not allow me to pay.  I kept getting the eBay "Pay Now" messages daily.  I messaged the seller and he billed me through Paypal and that seemed to fix it.

    That's normal for resin. There's always the tweek to fit aspect.   Also check the fit of everything prior to painting.  Especially the glass, as some resin is thicker than a kit body.

    I'd pay for this site. And hope that some of the more challenging characters wouldn't!

    Aha!  You surprised me with the Nova based Elkie.  All the other attempts I've seen have been on the full size Chevy.
    I thought you may like to see the below model. I didn't build it, bought it this way.  I believe this was built  back when the kit was new. Note that they went for a fixed / molded in bed cover.

    Very cool Dan.  Two weeks... are you bringing a model along?

    Bingo!  If everyone thought this way, Gregg would be in a better place.  I call that a vote for the hobby. I also am a subscriber.  One of my rules of business is "always root for the little guy!"
    Those sitting on the sideline waiting will be part of why the operation fails
    There are those who complain and criticize on the board the man provides us for free, but won't support the magazine.  That's balls.  
    And in the end there will be those who gleefully will proclaim  "TOLD YA!"   Only there won't be a board for them to spew on!

    Cool Bill.  I bought one of Harry's builds from Amy.  I'm very honored to have it on my shelf.

    Congrats Mike!  This news makes my day!
    I'm pleased today because I have a new fence going up around my pool.  The old split rail fence  was falling down, the chicken wire on it was all that was holding it up. Now I have a black aluminum one with a lifetime warranty.  It's near 100F degrees out there and I'm sitting in the air conditioning watching others do the work.

    I haven't stepped foot in Michaels since Hobby Lobby opened up across the street.  I don't buy kits at either store, just supplies.  Michaels is a pain in the neck, Testors paints are in a locked case, and it  personnel are slow to respond with the key.  Even then they take the can of paint up to the register as if I'm some kind of over the hill tagger!  I thought that was a local law until Hobby Lobby opened and had all their paint out in the open.

    Nice build on the Capri.  I've always had a thing for them, back when I was young I lived in Germany and our neighbor had a first generation car.  Your model has the awful USA 5 Mile Per Hour bumpers, which everyone hated on just about every car!
    Here's an old built up I bought many years ago:


     
  11. Tom Geiger added a post in a topic Do You Recycle Your Old Builds?   

    I have not taken apart any of my own builds. I believe your old builds and the builds from then to date, are a chronicle of your growth as a builder.  Of the 28 years I've been building as an adult, I have only finished about one a year.  I have only given away one build, and that was of my sister in law's Chevette and I gave it to her.  If I was to want another of a model I already have, I can come across a fresh kit easy enough. Then I'd want to display them side by side.
    I also have a collection of the great old custom builds that people had done in the early years of modeling.  Those are history, and the art of our youth.  Those I preserve, and if they need a bit of work I will do that but never improve them beyond the original build. I do have a bunch of old builtups that are not significant builds that I will redo as I have the time.

    Gary, what year are you trying to build?  The 65 and 66 are completely different dashboards and interior patterns.

    Can anyone recommend a respirator mask that is reasonable in price and suitable for hobby and automotive spray cans?

    So Bill..... How do you like your new TC?

    And watch out for Chinese sellers of cheap junk. There is a loophole in a trade agreement that lets them ship to USA cheaper than a US seller. I bought a couple phone charger cords and wall plugs that looked good but did not work. My phone actually rejected them as dangerous!  
    You write the seller and they tell you to send it back knowing you cannot because the postage is more than you spent!
    They even mascarade as US sellers.  I needed a pair of windshield washer nozzles. Take a look, there are thousands for sale by China sellers. I found a US seller listed as being in New Jersey. I paid about double what the China sellers were asking. A week later I get them shipped from China. Again, worthless junk that doesn't work. The nozzles shoot at the bottom of windshield and hose ends are too small to hold the hose in place.
