      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

    Thanks for starting this thread, Larry;  Jack deserves the recognition.
    I've never communicated with Jack directly, because I've never needed to.  Over the five years that I've been dealing with Model Roundup there has never been a single hiccough.

    Looking good, Rob.
    So, where did that siamese blower come from?  It looks like a very nicely molded piece.
  3. Shardik added a post in a topic Harry's new model car book   

    Just ordered mine.  Can't wait.
  4. Shardik added a post in a topic Revell '48 Ford: Tyler TX PD   

    Nice clean build.  Excellent foil work.

    You do nice cabinet work.

    Sounds like you're looking for louvers in all the wrong places.
     
  7. Shardik added a post in a topic An apology   

    I see scale modeling as the intersection of art and engineering, and neither can thrive if limited to arbitrary rules which stifle innovation.
     Also, the manner in which a work of art is displayed can do much to enhance the viewers enjoyment.  This, in my opinion, is what your photographs accomplish.  So, by all means, carry on as you have.
    As an aside, I would also enjoy seeing your models photographed from multiple angles and with a less distracting background, in addition to your usual stunning displays.

    Schon.

    Very nice.
  10. Shardik added a post in a topic Show us your pick-up truck models!   

    Nice collection of pickups here, but they're all too clean and shiny.  I'll add mine just to bring it "down to earth", as it were.

  11. Shardik added a post in a topic If I hit the lottery   

    There's an old joke amongst luthiers:
    Q: What would a luthier do if he won the lottery?
    A: Keep building guitars until he ran out of money.

    Wow! that Sears conversion must have had some serious "grunt";  Dual tranies, A two speed rear end And a monster chain reduction!  Might not have been fast but I'll bet not much would stop it.
    Oh, I almost forgot, I really like your model as well.  That crosscut saw looks a lot like the one I have hanging in my shop.

    Nice, crisp edges on those stripes.  What do you use for masking?

    Shiny,  glad somebody got it.

    I'll be in my bunk.
