  1. What lacquer thinner do you use? I tried Stynlrez for the first time recently and it did not go well. I tried straight out of the bottle. It didn't flow and gummed everything up. I tried Kleen Strip lacquer thinner and ended up with a giant booger ball in my mixing cup. Windshield washer fluid seemed to do the best but everything still got gummy. And like Mike, the stuff that did make it to plastic had a rubbery feel. I was using a .5 mm needle in a Master Airbrush G233.
  2. I always thought she was pretty hot, but the beat down she gave Chuck Finley is what I will always remember her for. https://www.cleveland19.com/story/730693/indians-pitcher-misses-start-after-wife-allegedly-attacked-him/
  3. If you can find a copy, I recommend it. It's been a long time since I've seen it but I remember liking it. Your '55 is coming along nicely.
  4. I know you had some doubts about the color combo, but I think it looks great.
  5. I don't have a tv or radio in the hobby room, but I do have a baby monitor so that I can hear if my 2 year old wakes up. I have to wait until he's in bed before I can even think about doing any building. By then I'm usually wiped out and fall asleep myself.
  6. I bought a '90 Super Coupe in '94. I loved that car until everything went to heck at the same time. I'm looking forward to your finished build.
  7. I know a few myself. And getting paid more to stay at home than to work doesn't exactly motivate these people to get a job.
  8. Two things help with this. 1) If at all possible, have the booth set up in a place that isn't very dusty. 2) Turn the booth on and let it run for a little while before painting. Hopefully any dust that is floating around gets sucked into the booth filter. This is how I do it since I bought my booth that is similar to the one from Micro Mark. I haven't had a dust issue, but my painting skills are so bad that dust would be the least of my problems.
  9. I have a Dark Shadow Gray Mach 1 that I bought new in October of '03. I'm never selling it.
  10. I learned in my grandparent's '68 or '70 (I don't remember which) Impala when I was 14. They let me drive it up and down the dirt road they lived on. Behind the wheel was done in an '82-'83 Cutlass Ciera. I remember that the car had a brake pedal on the passenger side for the instructor to stomp on in case of an impending crash. One day the instructor took us to an empty parking lot and set up cones for us to drive around. There were three of us in the car. A good friend of mine was at the wheel, I was on the passenger side, and the other kid was in the back. My friend got his learners permit
  11. The USPS finally delivered my issue today here in VA. I gave it a quick glance and I like what I see. Someone mentioned, either on this thread or another one, that they would like to see higher quality paper be used. I am fine with the paper within the mag, but would like to see a little better paper for the front and rear covers. That is a very small nit to pick, though. I have nothing but praise for the contents of this issue. Great job to all involved.
  12. The Truxmore Gran Torino is one of my all-time favorite NASCAR racers. Great set of cars.
  13. I'm hopeful that the USPS will get issue 208 to me before 209 goes out.
