      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

    hey doc iam in, iam entering the 1950 chevy texaco truck iam building. i just uploaded my video about it on youtube. my channel is modelbuilder22 if you wana keep with the build. the only thing that gets painted is the tire fenders is that ok or not? if not i can just leave the fenders alone. I'd figured since the texaco truck is white it would be perfect for this. btw this is my first community build. if you wana watch the video wait till later today as for some reason it takes a while to upload to youtube on my phone. i all ready have one video up on the channel about the truck. Thanks doc for all your tips on model building

    the crovette is done and my step dad was happy with it. i enjoyed this build and i got the plastic bug while building it because it was fun and relaxing. it was my first complete build and i got a big ol glue spot on the side of the body. ( mirror fell off ). it also gave me some fitting issues, guess i should did a mock up. i will do one for my second build.

    Back view of the windows and interior for some reasom this kit didnt come with side windows werid huh!

    this has been a fun build minus some fitting issues i have had. the chassis will be done today and interior started. this is the farthest i have completed any model build so far. but the others are in the box so all i have to do is get them out. it would probley already been done if i dont spend so much time on here to much eye candy for me not to look at. and with a couple car shows coming will be even more ideas and eye candy.

  12. modelbuilder22 added a post in a topic Stylin' Cues--Where Do You Find Yours?   

    car shows,tv shows,web,fourms, you tube i work 10 hour shifts so that gives me a lot of time to think about what i wana do. by the time pay day comes i usually spend about 1/4 of my pay check on the hobby. its addicting, then when i need a break from it i take it so i wont get burned out. this usually happens after i am done with a build, so i can do some research on my next project.
