  1. My hobby room is located in the basement and I have one. I keep it set on 50% RH. One less thing to worry about.
  2. I'm glad you like the RB scriber. I really like mine.
  3. Bill, do you airbrush your Duplicolor or is it straight out of the can?
  4. Here's one idea for wider fenders. http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=55926
  5. Thanks for the reply. I know what a curbside model consists of but I'd just like to know what I'm getting before I buy it. The Fujimi GT 40 and Chrysler Concept Car are both curbside. I didn't know that when I bought them,
  6. Is there a list somewhere of the models that are curbside? Being relatively new to the hobby after a 50 year layoff, it sure would be nice to know which ones are.
  7. To paraphrase the bandit in Treasure of the Sierra Madre, "we don't need no stinkin' wrecker"!
  8. Just about everyone on the forum will suggest spraying a plastic spoon or two with the paints and see if there's a reaction. Others will tell you to use the Testors clear over the Testors paint.
  9. I don't have a lot of experience with it but from what I've read here on the forum, it doesn't yellow or crack. Here are some references: http://www.swannysmodels.com/TheCompleteFuture.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37Wmy3HqHg8#t=0 http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=8964&page=9 http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=86705#entry1132789 http://ilovewood001.tripod.com/modeling/future.html http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=77351#entry979093
  10. If the surface is pretty smooth after applying the color, you could consider using Pledge Floor Care Tile & Vinyl Floor Finish with Future Shine. It can be brushed on. I've airbrushed it and it really is easy to use. Here's a discussion on it. http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=8964&hl=
  11. Slick! Love that orange. GO VOLS!!!!!!!!
  12. http://www.radubstore.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=77_110&products_id=329
  13. Here's what I use and I like it. http://www.radubstore.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=77_110&products_id=329
  14. I always thought Bullitt was the greatest car chase ever. I now saw that Ronin and Bullitt are tied but Bullitt wins the tiebreaker with the cars. The chase in Ronin is awesome.
  15. Aaron Paul stars in it. I hope he's just doing it for the money. His work as Jessie Pinkman in Breaking Bad was good enough to garner Emmy awards. Maybe he wanted something brainless to do after the marathon that was Breaking Bad.
  16. The owner worked for my Dad. We had to take him to the Chattanooga airport so he could fly out to see his girlfriend. On the way back, Dad just pulled over and offered to let me drive the last few miles home. Wouldn't you know it but I didn't see anyone I knew.
  17. Beautifully done! Looks just like the first car I ever drove.
  18. That's got to be one of the most dominating performances by a driver and team in any motorsports event ever. Breaking the record by seconds, impressive, breaking it by a minute and a half, unbelievable!
  19. Here's a link to a crash Ken Block had. The navigator missed a couple of letters on one word.
  20. IROC started with a good variety of courses but when Nastycar drivers didn't win all the time, they changed the venues to more superspeedways. I lost interest in it at that point. Don't get me wrong, I like and watch the stock cars, if you want to call them that. They could bulldoze Daytona and Talladega IMO, though.
