    Very interesting, unusual and imaginative...and I really like the overall lines.
  2. Ace-Garageguy added a post in a topic AMT Slammers? Anyone build these   

    I've bought most of these over the years, thinking to do something like some of you guys have already built---detailed models with engines and interiors. Several of them seem to be great starting points for wild customs.

    Maybe a liquid mask brushed carefully on the rim and ribs, then spray the dark color, remove the mask?

    Nice. I remember having this kit back in the dim recesses of time, and I've been kinda looking for another one. Good to know it comes with an OHV Ford option now, too.

    Kewt little trucklet. Very French.

    Truly remarkable how this nasty car-mashup has brought the community together. Nobody arguing or defending the right of a no-talent hack to make a puke-ugly mess. I love it.

    Just FYI, the Adblock Plus in question is an extension available directly from the Google Chrome web store for Google Chrome (and Firefox). I've been running it for a year and if anything, my system is considerably faster, because I'm not having resources hijacked to run all the idiot ad videos, animations and popups.
    While it's true that many free products are hiding trojans and other carp, it's not the case here.
    It is one of the most popular and highly recommended add-ons out there.
    But if you get it, DO make sure to get it directly from the Google site or adblockplus.org...not another provider or mirror...to make as certain as possible it's not bundled with bogus carp.

  9. Ace-Garageguy added a post in a topic engine detail ?   

    I think one key is if you're going to add a detail, try to get each particular detail scale-correct or don't bother.
    Plug wires as big as garden hoses, throttle-return springs and linkages that are way too big, and plumbing that runs off to the wrong place because the builder doesn't understand the function of the detail he's adding...these things only detract from a model.
    If you can't get it right, leave it off.

    Here's some more info on getting rid of KNCTR and exactly what it is.
    I can't vouch for the efficacy of any of these operations, as I haven't personally had to use them yet.

    Very helpful, Art. I filed it for future reference. Thanks.

    Shockwave is a ubiquitous player / viewer program that allows you to see what they call "rich" media content, which usually means annoying animated advertising running on a page you're looking at. Crashing is a common problem, and there are lotsa recommended fixes available online. Just Google "shockwave crashing".
    If you're running Chrome as your browser, it has its own internal version of Shockwave, and the two versions may be having a conflict, causing the one that's running to crash. You can uninstall the extra one, which is said to correct the problem in Chrome.
    Since I loaded ad-block plus on to my Chrome browser, I no longer get most of the idiot advertising, and have no more issues with the ol' flash crash.
    taskeng.exe is a legitimate task-scheduler sub-program in Windows7 and 8, but apparently there's a virus version running around too. Info here...
