  1. Mahalo to Rich for getting the decal sheet for me much appreciated sorry for type using phone to reply
  2. Yes, just the flames. Pic of slot car:
  3. I was sent an email (Thanks, Bob!) to let me know that some of the contacts in the old MCM Club Directory page were way out of date. Iʻve taken that link down, and if we can get updates on the contacts for the clubs, hopefully we can get that club directory updated, complete with my first ever GIF linked map! Thanks. Donʻt post updates here yet, just wanted to let it be known that the original page has been removed, and will be updated. Have to figure out how to do this so that there is some rhyme or reason to it.
  4. Need the decals from the Revell '49 Merc kit. I'm pretty sure it's the sedan version, pic attached. I need the flames to finish off a slot car (I know, the nerve!!!!) Thanks.
  5. Here's a quick update above from what I have posted on Facebook: The next two surgeries will be done on two days (for example, a Thursday and a Friday). First surgery will be through the front. A thoracic surgeon will assist with the procedure along with a vascular surgeon. They will have to break two ribs to get to the thoracic area (T12-T10). They will remove the disc(s), and either fuse or attach hardware to the vertebrae. The next day, the posterior lumbar surgery will include removing the existing rods, from L1-L5, and extending it up to and including T-10. My other doc will
  6. Email me your address, I do have you listed, in Luisville, KY
  7. Sorry, just saw this post. One of the highlights of my earlier "tours" was the shop tour I did of Fred Cady's shop/house. I am still in awe not only of the work that Fred has done over the years (all by hand), but his house and shop is amazing! I am an avid architecture fan, my dad was an architect here in Hawai'i, and have been a Frank Lloyd Wright fan, and member of the foundation, for many years. Now Fred's house may not be a FLW house, but that is the first thing I thought of when I was there! I still have some of the photos that I snuck while upstairs, I only took
  8. Mike, email me. It should not say last issue on label. Send me a pic of label, if can. Please talk to me via emails.
  9. WOW! You guys are right! Just opened my poly bag with my issue in it. BAD BAD BAD!!!! Something seriously went wrong with the printing of this. I apologize to everyone for this. On my proofs, they were fine. Perfect, in my eyes, but the printed ones. OMG!!! Some were okay, but the ones, well, most of them, OUCH! Okay, this one is on me. Not blaming meds, or anyone else, this is me. I will see what printer says, because the digital proof was okay also. From what I remember in doing the mag in Denver, everything could be adjusted when the pr
  10. As for the black background, it was a test. Since it was a special show, I tried something something. I have five negatives so far, but I haven't seen my printed copy yet, so maybe it is the actual printing of it. Will I do it again? Maybe for features, or something else. I do like the way it came out, but that's just me, on screen, and doing proofs. Some of them were just amazing.
  11. Thanks, Tom!!! See, I knew I wasn't making this up!!!! I have the USPS manual downloaded, and also have it in sections that applies to me/us. One thing I have a problem with now is with Slot Cars. It's a pending application, and no one here (Hawai'i) can give me a definitive answer, one way or another. Still trying to get that sorted out. Thanks for this, I'm going to copy it into my Power Of Six note/file.
  12. The Power Of Six I can’t count the number of times we have had this complaint: "I haven’t received my issue yet. The hobby shop/friend/or other reader has received their copy or copies, and I have not gotten mine yet. What gives?” We did a test when we had Plastic Fanatic years ago, when we used to mail the magazine from our house, using our bed as the distribution/sorting table. It comes down to The Power of Six. If there are less than six magazines that go to the same post office periodical drop zone (“PDZ”), then they get bundled together with all the other less than six
  13. Thanks, Randy. I'll start sending out the dealer invoices now, hopefully they will get there by the time the mags get to dealers/shops.
  14. I did contact them once, and it showed up in their "inventory", but I never heard anything back from them. That was many years ago, and left a sour taste in my mouth. They listed it with no further contact with me, no contracts, terms, etc. It was strange. I know that was a while ago, so maybe it will be better this time. Thanks!
  15. That's right! I forgot about them. I know Model Empire gets a huge shipment also. Thanks, Michael!
  16. This is what I like. Constructive ideas that brings out really good questions. I had a dealer list on the site a while ago. I'll try an update that also. With the change in my app/program I use now, it should be easier to do, once I learn how to do it....
  17. I should have my office copies in about a week. Still doing the after mailing paperwork, and things are not too good here right now, so maybe a bit longer. You bring up a good point, find someone to do wholesale/online sales of the printed mags, freeing up some time and physical work. Thanks!
  18. Please let me know when it DOES show up, not that it hasn't. I set the notifications to ON for this, and I'm getting a lot of emails/notifications. I usually don't have notifications on, since the email quota for my last brain cell is so small, I need to keep the inbox at a manageable level. Thanks.
  19. Ingram, my last newsstand distributor, closed when I went down for a while. I have to apply to a brand new company, and start the process all over again. Right now, just the 194 hobby shops.
  20. Finally, after what seems like a million years, or at least days, the latest issue of Model Cars Magazine was printed and mailed from Denver on or about November 7, 2019. If you guys can let me know when (and only when, not that you don't have it yet) you get your copy, I would appreciate it. I'm trying to see how long it takes to get delivered across the country. Remember, just because someone farther away from Denver got their magazine sooner than you, there's a reason for this, and I've explained this many times before. It's the Power Of Six (Kelly and mine scientific expe
  21.

  22. As an update on this, no, did not get close to 200 Lifetime subs. The trip to GSL cost me a grand total of $45.96. $13.50 for airfare (I am a lifelong Delta man, and used my miles from years ago), room was free (thank you to a friend), and dinner the Saturday night. Yes, I was there for 26 hours, and then three days at home on the floor.I came close to running out of pain meds, and that was not fun. It killed me, but it was worth it. Hope this settles some of the nay-sayers.
  23. I have contemplated posting this before, but I think you guys need to see what the whole situation is here at home. The long/short story is, this 8th back surgery in February has been a failure. Plus, for the past year and a half, I've been the full time adult day care provider for my wife's 87-year-old parents (both of them), with dementia, and other health issues. She does the night shift, and by the time she get's home, I'm literally dead to the world. We have now gotten some daytime hospice care for them, so it frees me up some during the day. I know, hospice, that's a b
  24. I need help from someone who is okay with using Photoshop. I need to have the numbers to the group photo from GSL. It's a huge file so far. Need to be able to copy the format that I have started, putting numbers in front of everyone in the group shot If you know how to use Layers, and got some time, I would appreciate the help. This is the screenshot of the Photoshop file as it is now If this makes sense to you, great. If not, that's fine, I need someone who can just jump in and finish the numbering, in the layers, as is. Thanks.
