      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

    Other than candied apples, this is the best/easiest way.

    Nice work. I've got two of these I need to get to.

    I'm tempted by the F-100, but I'm partial to VW as well. The only thing I may want to part with is a 1/35 staff car, and a built up IMC. I was going to rebuild the IMC, but its such a horrible, inaccurate kit.

    I've got a built Duster, missing one wheel, with a trashed box. Also have two '80's chassis.

    Beautiful work. Gauges are amazingly done.
    Was there any kind of template for the nose paint?

    Excellent work on the mods and paint.

    Beautiful! Looks showroom fresh.

    Nice work. Old Revell castings/kits are a nightmare to build shiny, nice and perfect.

    Has anyone tried masking with these Molotow Chrome Markers? I got one off Amazon a week or so ago, I'm pretty impressed. I underestimated how small 2mm would be. Gonna get the 1mm next, I reckon. I never got  any BMF because I was put off by the cost+hassle.
    I went nuts for a few hours and redid some mirrors and trim on already built models. the flow is pretty good. I chromes an injector hat, and waited half an hour to see if it was dry. It wasn't waited the next day and wet sanded it, and re did it. looks great.

    I bought an imported mecha kit at a comic book store in 1987. Orguss Tank by Imai, at Lone Wolf Comics in San Bernardino.

    I'm down with this. Waiting for this to arrive from Amazon:

    I can't guarantee steady updates, though.

    Impeccable work. It is coming along beautifully. 
    I think the Upper cooling tin, over the cylinders, oil pump cover, and the drain plate should  also be black. The Bosch distributor cap is a perfect colour, did you mix the paint?

    I remember the toys, but no model kits. The dune buggy would be cool to have.
