      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

    37 Ford Rat Rod
    This was a build for the club I'm in, pick a kit from another members stash and build - no restrictions. Started with the Monogram 37 Ford hot rod and combined elements from the AMT Hard Hat Hauler and a few bits from other kits. This was the first time for many items such as z-ing a frame, wiring the engine and most of all not something in my comfort zone. On with the pics.

    Your best bet is to go to your closest Hobby Lobby and use their 40% off coupon.

    My guess is that it will dry before it hits the plastic and create a coarse finish, similar to 120 grit sandpaper

    Snake,
    Primer - I've personally used Tamiya grey and white, Duplicolor, and Testors as primers under that paint.
    As Joe mentioned above, the 1oz bottle is good enough for a small body, the 2oz (which is what most of the paints are in) can cover 2 to 3 bodies. I shoot at 24psi. As for lasting over time, I have paint that I bought 2 years ago and are still good. I shake the bottle for 30-40 seconds after i hear the bb's inside making noise.
    He has gloss paints and base/clear. Testors lacquer and Tamiya are what I have used for the most part.
    Any other ?'s, ask away.
