    What's going on with the rubber
    Some grayish white residual substance appeared on the tires of unbuilt revell 69 Dodge Charger R/T. It seems to wipe off easy with no damage but wondering what could be causing it? I'm storing the kit in a dry basement with the rest of my collection. This seems to be the only one I've found like this and have never seen this before. Should I be concerned?

    The list of all the dead people bugs me. I come to this forum for fun and relaxation not to get depressed. My own mortality is creeping up on me fast enough so maybe a separate section can be made up and called it Celebrity Obituary where everyone famous that died can be listed. That way one can choose to avoid it if they want.  I use to like coming to the off topic lounge but it's been pretty morbid lately! Sorry for the rant but I needed to get this off my chest!

    Pic doesn't show up on my iPhone. Not sure if it's a problem on my end

    I see your digital version, but this magster app appears to have the latest issue 203 of model cars available. I know jack about apps but this seems like piracy or copyright violation to me if this is not authorized by yoou!
    p.s. I'm a subscriber for more than five years love this magazine!

    How about wet sanding to keep the dust down. Also helps keep the paper from loading up. Painting though, respirator and paint booth or outside.

    So, is this a revenue source for Gregg? I thought he wasn't going to go digital with the magazine himself.

    I'm a tool and die maker. Take my excess used blades to work and toss em in the scrap steel hopper.

    Stewart's Hobbies in Whilloughy
    Depot Train and Hobby
    4342 West 130th St. Cleve. OH
    Been to both places, nice selection of kits, and supplies. 
    Stewarts in Whilloughby has a better selection of vintage kits though. If you go, check out Whilloughby brewery down the street. Great food and craft beer if your so inclined!👍
  10. JohnU added a post in a topic Flushable wipes ha!   

    Saw something on TV about London sewers being clogged with what they call a "fatberg" the size of a bus. It consisted of food fats, wet whips and other such "flushables" that don't break down like the manufacturerers claim. It had to be removed before it caused flooding. Big fun for the sanitation department!
  11. JohnU added a post in a topic Throwing Away Old Stuff..   

    I don't toss stuff nearly as much as I should as well! The eyeglass lenses got me thinking I do the same thing! Multiple old scripts filling a drawer! My rationale is that good money was spent and seems a waste to throw away! Even though they're unusable. Same with old computers and electronics, clothes, magazines....you get the picture. D.mn, I need to clean out my garage and basement!LOL!

    Gotta get one of these to help with BMFing like everyone else has mentioned. Just bought a new Dewalt drill with a built in light and love it! This idea for the knife is just as "brilliant"!😄

    The type I'm familiar with is magicians flash paper used for on stage pyro effects.
