    Hey, Chris--

    In looking at the pics with the open chute packs, that materiel looks very much what umbrella material would look like, scaled down. HTH.

    Hey, Miles- Hate to burst your bubble, but Moxie is not the oldest. Moxie came along in 1876, ten years after Vernor's Ginger Ale.

    Scott- I called Shep Shepperd out on his Whiskey Ridge Resin & decals FB page, and he came up with three different stories to how he came to have the Fairmonts- first, he stated he bought twenty (not fifty as he first claimed here) of the bodies from a caster in Australia but couldn't think of the guys name, the he stated he bought them from a caster in Georgia, then changed that story to he bought them (again, 20 of them) in a collection from 'somebody'. At that point, his FB partner-in-crime Mike Coleman, who co-owns the FB page, chimed in with a long diatribe about the fact "they" don't cast anything but only sell resin cast by others. What followed from the two of them was the standard "hey, anybody could have made the master, what have YOU cast," and then a few choice homophobic and body-orifice comments. At that point, MC booted me from his page, so I don't know what transpired afterward. I did receive quite a few pm's supporting my comments, including from two other resin casters whose products WR was selling as their own.
    FWIW, I don't think they will be around for long as comments on other FB and modeling sites seem to be 95% against their practices. They publicly acknowledge that they don't care where their stuff comes from, and plan to continue selling to "their 2000 customers" and to hell with everyone else. The idscussion carried over to the FB Scale Resin page, but ended up getting deleted.

    Hey, AC-
    By any chance, does the "A" in AC stand for Alf?

    Hi, Alan-
    Nice model. Did you use the decals that were designed for the Demon? Could explain why they didn't fit- different year and different body style.

    Chuck- Are you going to reopen your decal business? There are several I want to get.

    Hey, Roger- Where did you find the MM sign? I picked one up at a flea market about twenty years ago, never saw one again ANYWHERE until I saw your post!

    Chris-
    I wanted to give you fair warning: if you bring this to one of our contests, you will be disqualified and not allowed to enter. We only allow scale models in our shows, not the real thing!! Fantastic work!

    An FYI for everyone- I spoke with Ray today at the Mid-Michigan Model Makers contest & show, and to use his word, he "DOES NOT HAVE CANCER ! and he is feeling very well". Also, his lovely wife Ruth is also in good health, with marked improvement in some eye issues she had been dealing with. He is still pouring & casting bodies, and may soon announce new outlet for his products. SO, stop the rumors and focus on the positive in life!

    Hey, Scott-
    Great work so far on the chassis; one question, on the front frame rails/fender tin, are you going to make a relief opening for the tie rod ends? Just curious....
    Keep up the great work!

    The news of these upcoming releases are the most catastrophic news to date! This news will be the ruin of me... divorce... bankruptcy..... homelessness.... because I'll have to buy SO MANY of these new kits!!!

    Coming along nicely, Scott, looking forward to seeing this finished.

    I also teach 5th grade, and have done model-building in my classes, as well as do make-n-take's at our local club contest/show. FWIW, try to go with the snap kits from Revell's program, as they will work best (read that as successful completion and high self esteem for students) for your class. Good luck, and have fun with it!
