      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

I am currently working on a 49 Mercury and it has been coming along excellent until know. I started putting the paint job on it and it immediately started looking like ######!! ;) I can't stand it when a project turns bad! Makes me want to quit all-together! :o

It happens to everyone!

Strip the paint and try again... not much else you can do. Even the most experienced, talented modelers screw up. (they just don't admit it!!!) ;)

Yeah, I guess its time to get out the brake fluid. Hopefully it won't hurt the plastic too much.

Therer are plenty of other ways to strip paint, if you're unsure of brake fluid.

CSC or Easy-Off oven cleaner... just to name a couple.

In fact, if you had the August/September issue of MCM, you'd have seen the article comparing different types of paint strippers.

Yet another benefit of subscribing to the magazine... ;)
