  1. Who gets asked to fix something, just because you're known for building models? ? Wife said her laptop sound wasn't working, and couldn't plug in the cord for the speakers used for her job. I tried to plug in my cord, obvious that it wouldn't. Looked in the hole, looked in my laptop's hole, then I could see a tip had come off. Eyeballed the size of the stub, went to the workbench.

  5. I gotta AMT 68 gt500 and the body has been cut below the driver door from the wheel well to the middle of the door. I haven't the slightest clue how to fix it and do it right. I'd much rather trade the whole kit to a pro. 23.bmp
