  1. That's what I thought too, so I built my own. I based it on the ones I used to work with when I was at the Y-12 Nuclear Weapons Plant in Oak Ridge, Tn. That's not me in the picture at the bottom and the boxes we used were like the one I built, with one big window.

    There are so many different techniques that can be used for masking. And now I want to show you some of the ones I use.


    A couple of questions. What is the name of the circle cutter you used to make circular stencils (at the 4:41 mark) and where did you get it? Also, what is the brand name of the white modeling masking tape you used and where did you get it?

  3. I'd read enough about the S22 line that I wanted one. Got it in May and it's the best cell phone I've owned. Granted, I was using Tracfone junk, but when we decided to take the plunge, the S22 was at the top of most reviews I'd read. In addition,  many of them said the 22+ was the same as the Ultra, minus one camera lens. The S23 will be released soon. You could wait for it or get a S22 at a discount. I'm retired and have no affiliation with Samsung.

    Oh yea,I forgot all about Young Frankenstein.Certainly one of the funniest movies ever.And I agree,seeing celebrities with horrible plastic surgery can be pretty shocking.😱

    "I was going to make espresso". That line was an ad-lib by Hackman and Brooks liked it so much, he left it in the final cut. Hackman wanted to do comedy so bad that he said he'd do Young Frankenstein for nothing. I bet he was paid though. He was hilarious. At 78, I look a lot older than he does. He looks great.

    No, it's a MPC. I've trimmed some places down but still have a small gap.

     If you can't find and fix the fitment issue I would recommend using 5-minute epoxy and Tamiya tape to hold the join together while the epoxy cures. I'd give the epoxy 10-15 minutes for a stronger bond. You might even want to attach some styrene "tabs" to the inside of the body shell to increase the surface area of the bond. 

    I'll probably go with the epoxy and tape method. I've just about trimmed everywhere that I can see any interference and the gap is smaller. There isn't any place to attach tabs that I can see.

    This band was a mixed group of rock musicians as well as country musicians. Some played on albums produced in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and Nashville, Tennessee. The band produced two albums. The first was Trip In The Country. I consider it their best. Each of the songs sounds completely unique, unlike any of the other songs on the album. I especially like Scotland, Devil Weed and Me and Always The Same. Even here in Tennessee, the band is pretty much unknown, even to people my age. They're missing out on a unique sound.
