  1. Any body watching Barrett-Jackson ?

    Same here. I taped everything because I did not want to miss that Cobra drag car. I was thinking they would show it again in that MOMENTS AGO feature....but no. But, they did not miss that HOT TUB CADDY...that could have been during a commercial.
  2. Game of Thrones

    I enjoy this show a lot. If you want to laugh, go to YOUTUBE and watch fan reactions to the shows. Some are from bars, some from private homes.
  3. Tamiya FXX K 1/24th scale New Pics 5/13/17

    I expect most of you have seen this. I thought it was great
  4. I seem to remember a E J Potter, "The Michigan Madman" from back in the day. He raced a bike with a 327 chevy engine I believe. Does that ring any bells?
  5. Tamiya 1/12 Ferrari 641/2

    Beautiful. I have built a couple of their 1/12 F1 models (and have 2 more) and several of the 1/20. Their quality on all that I have done is amazing. Are you using an aftermarket detail kit? Or, are you that good at detail painting. Once again, beautiful work. I will be watching for more updates. Thanks for posting.

    Have you looked at zip ties for your belt? May take a bit of shaving though. As far as the the shading - you could try doing the orange first, then the liter color. Maybe have minimal paint coming out and build it up slow. Just a thought, I sure ain't no expert. Can't wait to see this one. good luck. here is my undertaker

  10. Enjoying the experience is what it is all about to me. I find building box stock more successful for me, and less stressful. I think my greatest joy is a good paint job, followed by putting it in my display case.
  11. SWC Mustang

    Thanks Jim, these are great. Saw them in a match race against Don Gay's 66 or 67 GTO AWB (or funny car). Thanks again for the help, maybe I can get back to work on it now.
  12. SWC Mustang

    Thank you so much for posting this. This is my most fav car of that era. I saw it race near hear. Beautiful car. Years ago, I started modifying a plastic kit to build this same model. Happy with the back but still miles away on the nose. Yours is the best model of the Darkhorse 2 that I have seen. Love the frame. I can not find any pics of the front axle setup and really don't enough to do it right. Could you post pics without tilt nose to help me along? Or link me to someting? Wish you had a build post, that would be so neat. Great job, reakky.
  13. My pressure gauge always shows a drop as soon as I start actually sparaying. I always adjust the pressure by test spaying. If it has been a long time, I test with water, set the pressure as I spary the water then run Laguer thinner thru everything. When I am ready to spray the paint, I test spary and adjust the pressure if need be because the paint is thicker than the water, I will spray a few seconds to make sure the piant takes over and has washed out any left over thinner. Now, if I could just quit jumping when the compressor kicks on and surprises me as I spray...LOL. Practice practice practice.WATER, THINNER, then PAINT. Good luck.

    Oh yes indeed. Looks like a really beautiful track. Pulling for Nico R, myself. I follow F1 and NHRA more than NASCAR anymore.
