    I it on Monday at Hobby Depot. I think this may be the first issue for them. A good fit for them tho as they have a pretty nice slot section.

    Welcome!!  This is a great forum with lots of helpful info. Do not be disappointed if not too many folks respond to your intro, but post a project in progress or finished project, that is where most people respond. Enjoy the hobby!

  8. Modelbuilder Mark added a post in a topic Building air bags   

    These measure right at 1/8inch ID and 1/4inch OD, but they came in a mm size, but I do not recall that size. The bag I bought had like 100 in it, so they will last ages. Cheap too, like $2-3 for the bag. I got mine online, but there are many options as some of the folks above have mentioned.

    I am assuming you are talking air bags for an air ride system? If so, I there are probably many different ways to handle this. One of the ways that I have been playing around with that looks pretty good is to use styrene tubing and "o" rings.
    Here are some pics of an older project, and the current project I am using this method on.

    Having lived here in Phoenix now for almost 9 years, I will WAY take 100 degrees here over 100 degrees back in Indiana, there is a HUGE difference. It's not like you do not know it is hot outside, it is just not insufferable.

    Thanks everyone! Bruce, The roadway display is not finished, there will be a curb and side drain etc. The stones are from the cork sheets that you put in shelves etc, and they come in different thicknesses. Just cut them to shape, glue them down to a base, rough them up, paint to taste, then use plaster mixed with some fine sand to fill the cracks.

    Thanks Jonathan. My wife bought me this one as a birthday gift last year. Too bad they do not sell just the motor by itself. I may still try to get that kit at some point, as that price looks really reasonable. I just now tried to add it to my cart, and it said it is currently out of stock.

    2013 Ultramarine Scion FR-S
    Just off the bench. Still waiting on the plates, but otherwise I'm calling it done.Factory correct Ultramarine by ScaleFinishes, this is to replicate my daily driver. This is a great chassis with lots of detail, the body proportions all look right etc, but the final assembly gets fiddly. The side glass does not fit flush like you would want, and the fact that there is no motor is still a mystery to me. (Thanks Jonathan for the replacement decals!)
