      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

    Question about buffing metalizer paint
    I've recently got back into the hobby. I'm going to try using Model Master Metalizer (buffing) on a set of wheels. I've heard that using a Qtip or a used t-shirt works great for buffing but I have a couple questions. Do you just do the buffing after your final coat or do you do it in between coats? Also, after the final coat should you wait until it's completely dry to start buffing it or do you have to start say 15-20 minutes afterwards? Thanks for your help.

    Metalizer - buffing wheels
    I recently got back into modeling and am working on a kit where I'm going to use Model Master Metalizer (buffing) on the wheels. Does anyone have tips or advice on the best way to buff to get the best effect? Thanks, Mike

    I just started getting back into modeling again and am looking to upgrade from using an aerosol can for airbrushing. For $200 or less what would you recommend?
