  1. Click on the word "Edit". it should be to the right of the "G" in the blue circle that is your avatar image Just next to the word "Quote"
  2. Does the Olds Aerotech have that engine in it?
  3. May I suggest you PM your address and remove it from public view? You never know who is seeing it,
  4. They're not the same from what I can see, but thank you.
  5. You do realize what you just replied in your "smarter than me" attitude is exactly the same thing I said in my original post? In fact I even said I used a 6 foot line from my compressor to the trap, just like you use.
  6. I wouldn't trust letting the compressor cool off as a remedy. On a very humid day it doesn't take long for moisture to build up. Don't forget you are compressing the air which means you are also adding more moisture. You shouldn't have a problem with two traps, but as i said unless you move the first one, it's pretty much useless and it's easy to forget to check the traps. Relying on just that small one at the airbrush is risky. You are in Florida, not exactly a cool or dry place.
  7. Here's some aftermarket ones. https://www.bnamodelworld.com/model-cars-motorcycles-detail-up-sets-hobby-design-hd03-0287?zenid=946d21b37d1da456890dcb6f0f904969 http://www.mshobbies.com/1-24-hobby-design-resin-turbos-large/ http://www.mshobbies.com/1-24-hobby-design-resin-turbos/
  8. I forgot about them, Polytek is about 15 minutes from me.I've been there before and they were very helpfull.
  9. If like most airbrush compressors that come with a trap, it has it located at the compressor or tank, you need to move the trap. The trap has to be far enough away from the source so it can cool and the water separates from the air. What is happening is the warm moist air passes right through the trap and as it cools in the line and airbrush the water separates from the air. What I do is run a 6foot line from my compressor to the moisture trap and then hook my airbrush hose the trap.
  10. I've had good luck casting resin parts using the silicone and resin from Aluminlite. I would like to try casting some black rubber like tires such as the ones Modelhaus used to sell. Do I need a special silicone to make the molds? What resin do I need to get to cast them? Thanks for any help.
  11. If you are looking for an actual sign program, it's going to cost you some decent money, there are no free ones. My very old copy of Signlab was about $2500 some 30 years ago.
  12. Bill is this a hard to find item? I could see this being combined with an Indy car kit for something pretty wild.
  13. Thanks for the offer, but it's not a 1/20 kit. I'll edit my original request to show what kit I have.
  14. I caught a rerun one day last week and even with a few cool cars, I thought it was boring. It's not a bad show, it's just not for me.
  15. I originally thought the idea of the stages was a good idea. It would add some actual racing to the whole race and prevent drivers from hanging back for 3/4 of the race. Then I saw the caution would be thrown and it changed my mind. I HATE mandatory cautions! Other than wanting more commercials for TV, there is no need to stop the race. Score the stage and keep racing. No one is tuning in to watch an extra 15-20 laps of cars going 60mph with no ability to pass when they could be racing. My suggestions to improve NASCAR Cup racing,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Stock sheetmetal, add a spoiler, airdamn, and sideskirts. No more common templates. I honestly don't care if foreign cars are used, nor do i car if it's a front wheel drive body. Just make it recognizable, even if it was just in primer. Instead of 500 lap or mile races. 3 heat races of about 50 laps, a 25 lap consi and a 200 lap/mile race. Leave Daytona as it is or was. It's their big race and should have tradition. Single car teams only! Unfortunately I doubt it could be enforced. Let the teams design their own drivetrains. Limit Cubic inches to keep the speeds in check. Make blocking ILLEGAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If Indycar can do it, so can NASCAR. Let drivers speak their minds. I'm tired of brown nosing drivers who are fined and afraid to say what they really mean or want. Bring back more short tracks. They don't all need to be in the southeast either. There are too many 1.5 mile tracks. The post below reminded me of the biggest thing I hate, the playoffs. Reward the team that had the best full season, not the luck of the last few races.
  16. I need a set of tires or possibly a whole AMT Slammer Ram Blur Kit. TIA
  17. Thank you for correcting me. Now I AM interested!
  18. To me the Nurbergring is nothing special if they don't run the full course.
  19. I haven't lost interest, but shortly after my last progress pics, I've managed to screw up my right shoulder. It's to the point where some days it is almost useless and I'm in a LOT of pain. The only thing I've got done is getting the bomb headlights assembled and done. The fins are very thin and I broke one while sanding it. If it was styrene it would be an easy fix, but working with epoxy was a bit of a challenge. It took 2 days to do about 15 minutes of work. I think they look good and add to the theme without going overboard.
  20. You mean to tell me I didn't need to spend hours making almost the same thing? I just could've bought one? I'm loving this doc. I also like your proposed colors.
  21. Daddyfink wins the award for best post in this thread!
  22. If you don't need a stock grille, you could always take the hump out of the hood yourself,
  23. Doesn't the wagon have the earlier grille and hood?
  24. I'll take the silver version above over the patina any day.
