  1. What Irked You Today?

    Upper management. I usually don't like to criticize anyone, but the ones at my job make me want to start drinking again. I'm already living an unhealthy lifestyle( drinking three redbulls a day doesn't help, either), I'm always irritable, have very high stress, and have severe depression at times. Maybe it's time to find another profession. The very least my boss could do besides stand around and stare at you and smoke cigarettes is to make sure I have what I need to perform my job. Having to piece together equipment and computers every day gets really old really fast. Every day, I'm at least an hour behind having to wait for dayshift to finish up so a forklift becomes available. So, I guess I'm looking for another job this weekend. Wish me luck.
  2. Posting photos to the forum

    Seeing if linking from imgur will work. Well alright. Photocrud can KMA.
  3. Not Paying Photo Bucket Post Pictures

    Well, that settles that issue. At least for this site. Pics may not be the best from my phone, but at least I can share with you guys some of my projects.
  4. Not Paying Photo Bucket Post Pictures

    Testing to see if I can upload from my phone.
  5. Ferrari challenge update

    I'm currently building one as well. Going to make mine a police tribute car. All black with a thin blue line going on top of the body off to the right side.
  6. As my forum name implies, I love heavy metal. I just discovered this band a couple of days ago. Very aggressive but with awesome melodic riffs. Translucent potency is by far my favorite song from this album with the Unbinding Truth a very close second.
  7. WHAT BUGS YOU

    Revell Germany's paint callouts.
  8. Aoshima Toyota Chaser Blitz

    Are you kidding me??? That's beautiful! I'd love to see more of your models!
  9. What did you get today?

    Just ordered a fujimi ferrari f430 challenge as well as an aoshima mcleran f1 gtr pre season from ebay. The Mcleran is coming from Australia and the 430 is coming from Japan. Can't really beat the prices and the shipping was free.
  10. 430 Ferrari challenge (shark nose) update

    Was just looking at buying this kit a couple of hours ago. Really looking foward to seeing how this one turns out. Any fit issues so far?
  11. 2006 Cadillac STS

    That's the car from The second Matrix movie, isn't it?
  12. What do you listen to while you build???

    I actually find this kind of music very relaxing. I love organ music! I also discovered a good band called the Southern Backtones. The lead singer is an avid storm chaser and he incorporates his music into his storm videos. Simply bliss!
  13. What Irked You Today?

    We have a ban on fireworks inside city limits here if not paid for by the city.There is a huge party in the park right across from us and they are popping off fireworks one right after the other. We have already called the police once. Got here fast because they are literally right around the corner from our house. Now, it's a public park, so they're allowed to be there. But, the law is still the law. As I am typing this, they are still shooting off fireworks. Right next to the police station and our house! So, I'm going to call the cops again. I'm all in for fireworks and all, but not if it breaks the law.
  14. Ford GTLM

    Kinda looks like a vampire with those pieces on the front. I'm looking foward to seeing how this one turns out.
  15. Next up in the paint booth

    If you find that you have to strip paint again, might i recommend brake fluid? Dot 3 works extremely well. I recently had to strip a body. I left it soaking in purple power for over a month. Nothing. I soaked the body in brake fluid for three hours and the paint just bubbled up and slid right off. After soaking, run it under water and scrub with a fairly stiff brush. Wash with soap and water. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
  16. Another Titanic thread

    You also have to remember that those provisions were for over 2000 people as well as the crew, three times a day for three or four days( I can't remember exactly how long).
  17. Truck Kits You've Scored Recently

    You got a really good deal on that one considering those can go for over $150.
  18. What Pleased You Today!

    I was blessed today to see my great grandfather turn 103 years old today.
  19. Truck Kits You've Scored Recently

    SCORE!!!!!!!! I just won a Revell Beall tanker on ebay for only $81.00 shipped! I finally got my holy grail kit that has eluded me for the better part of six years.
  20. Another very beautiful song.
  21. I really like the new album by Apocalyptica titled Shadowmaker. Honestly, I like anything by them. Even though I'm a die hard heavy metal fan, I also like orchestra and some classical music. They're even better in my opinion when they're infused into heavy metal.
  22. 68' Dodge Charger......my first build

    One thing that might help is to fit the interior to the body first and then slide the chassis into the body. There should either be some locating tabs or grooves near the rear window that the interior should be able to slot into. I find that this helps a little trying to line everything up and it may help with fitting the chassis to the body.
  23. 67 Eleanor transkit available?

    Just seen on Spotmodel that they have it as coming soon. May have to snap up a couple of these!
