  1. WOW - HOW EXCITING YOU'RE FIRST CONTEST . You'll have to get back to us, and let us know what you thought . Be fun to hear about it .
  2. Yeah, me too Marcos . But all I have to do is just log into this forum and see what the rest of you guy's are doin', and I'm right back at it in no time at all
  3. YOU'RE FUNNY. YOU'D FIT RIGHT IN TO OUR CLUB REAL WELL .
  4. YEAH HUH Me too George - That's why we choose to enjoy life now .
  5. Thanks Harry Life and people are gifts to be cherished, or used and abused. WE ALL GET TO CHOOSE .
  6. In the last couple of months there has been a lot of, what I call, negative thread topics, and an unprecedented level of bad-mouthing each other on this forum. I thought I'd post a positive thread with "HOW GOOD I FEEL ABOUT THIS WONDERFUL HOBBY AND IT'S EVENTS". I'm not a "POLYANNA" kinda person who walks around "LA LA LA EVERYTHING IS SO NICE AND WONDERFUL", because frankly and realisticly life isn't like that. But that being said, for me after years of being at times negative myself, and not being the person I should have been to friends and loved-ones, I decided I wanted to change
  7. Hey Bill Thanks for the offer . This is the coupe'/roadster version that I chopped the windshield, filled in the bumper holes front and rear, and lowered the taillights, and lowered tha car. It was a way-fun-project, so I know this will be fun too, just cost more $$$. The kit build shown here was only $5.00 at a junk shop, and it was complete - I LOVE A GOOD DEAL .
  8. Yeah, both are the enthusiast kits - that's what I wanted. Voodoo Vega is a rare and spendy kit, but when you want it, money doesn't stand in the way. Just ask Harry, he buy's Poscher Kit's. Never spent that much on a single kit, like the Poschers, but I have spent a few grand on a scratch-build.
  9. Thanks George . The plan is to some time in the future, to restore these back to what they would have been like out of the box. Never seen any of these RENWAL kits ever built for a show, so after their done, I'll take them to the shows for "SHOW AND TELL" . I think that'ed be fun.
  10. Been searchin' several years for the last of my "MOST WANTED". This last year was especially productive as I found the bulk of them in just the last few month's. Most of the kits I wanted and found were Porsches, Ferrari's and mercedes with a few others thrown in. The last half dozen or so came from a friend in our club, who has between 3 & 4 thousand kits, some are rare specialty kits. Anyhow, here are the KITS I BAGGED <img src="http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/cool.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="" border="0" alt="cool.g
  11. For the last couple of years I've been collecting my "HOLY GRAILS". This year has been by far the best finding the bulk of what I've been searching for . Most of the kits have been vintage Porsches, Ferrari's and Mercedes, with a smattering of a few others tossed in for good measure . These are the last two on my list. Both are Fujimi kits. The Ferrari is a re-packaged Fujimi kit by Italeri. The Porsche has 210 pieces, and the Ferrari has 230 pieces.
  12. WAIT A MINUTE - NO SHINEY PAINT I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO A CAR WITHOUT SHINEY PAINT ARE THEY REALLY DONE WHEN THEY'RE NOT SHINEY ?????
  13. Personally, I don't see it as this big-a-deal. Most contests in my area are fairly honest. Yeah, there's been a few cheaters but they've been weeded out, and most everyone here knows who they are when they show up. And yes the judges are usually the same guys year after year, with the same biases, and admit it, 'cause no one's perfect , but WE CHOOSE TO ENJOY EACH OTHER, and put our attitudes on "MR. NICE GUY. I even have my biases too when I judge, and tell everyone, but do my best to be fair to everyone. Most of my building buddies and I agree that when you enter a contest, you'r
  14. BEAUTIFUL "PONCHO" RON. My condolances to you and your family on your father's passing. Losing a close loved one is always hard - I'll keep you in my prayers - dave
  15. It's a very old AMT kit, but can be found on ebay periodically. Prices can be reasonable to high depending on the condition, if it's built, and how complete it is.

  17. INCHES OF MERCURY BILL 29 inches of mercury is an almost perfect vacuum. NOW YOU'RE MORE CONFUSED . I was in the vacuum forming industry for nearly 40 years. Besides the guys here that'll help you George, research will help a lot too. GOOGLE "resin casting pumps", and other related topics and you'll be surprised at all the cool info that'll come up. Because I was an engineer, and a research kinda guy ( I love doing research - Information = knowledge), doing this kinda stuff has always been fascinating and fun to me. Good luck on your search .
  18. WELL' HERE WE GO - MORE COMPLAING AND OFF-TOPIC STUFF . I THINK THIS DEAD HOARSE HAS BEEN BEATIN' TO DEATH SEVERAL TIMES OVER . HARRY, LET'S PUT AN END TO THIS, AND GET BACK TO HAVING MODELING FUN . ENOUGH IS ENOUGH ALREADY GEEEEEZ .
  19. That's really a nice lookin' car Bob It looks like a factory design. The idea, the visual, and the execution are brilliant , but my brain is sorta messed up cause it's not sure how to "CATALOGUE" it - three cars in one??? That'll give them something to ponder when they have to put it in a catagory . Have fun at the show .
