    Thanks for posting this article. History is important, no matter what the subject is.

    Thanks for the info, Bernard. I will try it! Love your builds by the way! Keep up the great work! Cheers!

    There's some very nice '32 grills done here. I'll have to get some...they sure improve the look of the car. What's the best way to get the proper bend in the centre of the grill? Thanks for any tips!
  4. hotrod4ever added a post in a topic Bad Medicine and Ice T   

    Built both. I don't remember any problems. Just the usual clean-up. Simple kits that are great slump-busters! I did break the long drag link on the Bad Medcine. I would recommend both kits and frankly any Tom Daniels' kit. I just love the imagination he brought to these kits! I say build them.
  5. hotrod4ever added a post in a topic What's your build percentage?   

    Blair your % is 12.73 which is really good. 14 x 100 divided by 110=12.73 Glad you're back and healthy. That is most imortant.

    Here's to hoping you finish a lot more in the future! That's 'cause you are one of my favourite builders. You capture the "look" that I dream about. Love seeing your stuff. Start getting busy! lol
  7. hotrod4ever added a post in a topic What's your build percentage?   

    Brett your % would be 7.14 25 x 100 divided by 350. I think that's a pretty good rate!
  8. hotrod4ever added a post in a topic What's your build percentage?   

    You have to include the unbuilt as part of your total. So, 46 unbuilt + 51 completed = 52.58% of your 97 kits built, not including the 6 to come.
  9. hotrod4ever added a post in a topic What's your build percentage?   

    Your % works out 15.56! I'm guessing that's way higher than the average. I think some of our hoarders are afraid to put their numbers up! lol

    What's your build percentage?
    A common situation in our hobby is we have more kits than we could ever build. Of course, that's part of the fun, huh? I wonder what other builder's "build percentage" is.

    This is mine.
    First, how many model kits do you own? about 1000
    How many builds did you complete last year? 8
    Calculate build percentage: 8 x 100 (%) divide by 1000 = .8 %

    Please include your # of kits and your # of builds in your answers.

    I'm at .8% ...yeeesh! I gotta crack that 1% at least! lol

  11. hotrod4ever added a post in a topic How often do you visit Hobby Lobby?   

    I just got back from vacationing in the USA last week. (visiting relatives) I love Hobby Lobby! Picked up 2 rat roasters, Tommy Grove F/C, and a Candies & Huges F/C. Got some ground cover, bushes, flowers, and ballast for dioramas on clearance, some figures (tube people) that look to be 1/25 scale, and K&S tubing. Also on clearance I picked up a half a dozen packs of JTT plastic sheets...double diamond plate and bricks. And I didn't have time to "window shop". lol The kits are pretty much 1/2 the price of the ones north of the border!

    Thanks, Eric and Brandon. I saw B & B...do they sell any aftermarket stuff? Cheers!

    Hobby Shops
    Hi. Can anyone recommend any hobby stores from Spokane, Wa. to Portland, Or.? I'll be travelling that route tomorrow. It's a chance to visit some hobby shops that I normally don't get a chance to see. Thanks for any suggestions.

    Very cool build! I'd prefer mags or 10 spokes up front as my personal choice. I'd like to build one this nice. How did you make your hinges for the doors?

  15. hotrod4ever added a post in a topic How Far Would You Travel To A Show?   

    I've gone from the west coast to Lawrence, Mass. for a show, but my main purpose for flying east was to visit my son at B.U. It sure was a hi-light to see some of the top builders of the east coast, though! I managed to snag a 69 Shirley Shahan AMX (a holy grail?) that I have never seen in my area. I have driven about a 150 mi so far and hope to do a 6-7 hr drive to a show next year with the wifey. (could be expensive...she loves to shop!) I also hope to plan a vacation around an NNL show (which one would people suggest?) perhaps next year or this fall/winter.
