  1. Dave is it possible to have two servers in the event of a system crash like what happened over on Randy Ayer's Nascar board? It took over a month to try to fix and most of the content, pics and member profiles were lost. Everyone had to re-register because all members info was gone. Some articles were like of work under construction that were amazing. Especially the projects Henrik did. Made some modifications and made them seem quite simple. And his detailing was fantastic. Anyway the reason I asked about two servers is you could just switch back and forth and not have to worry about a crash
  2. Dr Larry. you beat me to the punch. I was just getting ready to send a post about your Pontiac trans-kits.
  3. Ron, since you have so many other projects on the bench, I think you should just send it to me. I can send you postage money after you get it in the mail and know just how much the postage was!! LOL
  4. J.C., I sure like that Otaki Capri RS3100 you showed the pic of. The front fenders look a bit different than the Minicraft version. Maybe just the image, but it does look slightly different.
  5. Snake, that El Camino is a better option than the wagon. Forgot about that kit. Could even cut out the doors and make opening doors on the Z-16 body too!
  6. Snake, you should just fix the Funny Car wheel wells by using the AMT '65 wagon fender pieces. Far cheaper tp find those than the Z-16. Probably find a body at a swap meet for a buck or two. Maybe someone here even has a junker body that has the sides salvageable.
  7. niteowl, (James), have you tried those Ebbro tires off the Lotus on any 1/24th-1/25th scale wheels (i.e. Pegasas) to see if they might fit as Pro Street tires? Looks like they might have nice tread detail on the box art. Not seen any of the Ebbro kits to know. I have seen some F-1 resin tires so could substitute slicks for the treaded kit tire or a resin set of the rain tires.
  8. Rico, I know it has probably been listed before, but can you provide your Shapeways site name again?
  9. A.J., would really be nice to see Photoshop version of your truck and f100's side by side. Different trucks and different beds would make a nice "growing" landscape company dio! Now if there were some Dodge kits to do the same idea that would be great for me. Yeah, just what I need another project!!!!!!
  10. OK, I guess I will have to be the oddball in the group as I bought a few of the Foose Caddy's. One will be built box stock, as I think this is probably Foose's best work. The others are admittedly parts kits. One for the aforementioned Revell Caddy chassis conversion (way back burner project) and the last one for uhmmmm, whatever! Now if it had been stock only, well probably none would have made it to checkout in my hands. So not everyone wants only stock versions.
  11. Rico, can I put my order in yet?? As quick as you get them drawn up, I might as well get my order in! Can't wait until you get this drawn up. I am still surprised Revell has not done that and a flat hood or a square screen vented hood, or both hoods. Could all be done on one sprue.
  12. Phil also mentioned where to get the gears to make the cable functional. I have a set but I am not sure they are exactly the same since I bought these about three years ago, not thirty like the article! Article did not mention the size of each gear, but there are probably more than one combination by now. But you cannot ever deny the talent of Phil. Sad to think we cannot see more of his work from now on. Steven
  13. Repstock, on your computer that died, was it the motherboard, chip, or the drive? If you want to try to get the info off the drive send me a message and I might be able to help. Got the tools and have done it several times. Worth a try. About the only way you can't get the info is if the drive itself went bad.
  14. Greg, I wish I knew where to find the inspiration. I have more than enough kits to last my lifetime and then 2 or 3 more after that.
  15. nightowl7710, you don't know how lucky you are to be able to pick up some of those kits everyone was talking about. When Hobby Lobby clearenced their kits I did grab a few since I had some funds for the first time in over 3 1/2 years. But there were a lot of kits mentioned at Ollie's that I would have gotten several of. Got to find a source for when (and IF) they do something like that again. Wish I knew if they had any plans to expand farther West.
