Yo Lyn. It was great seeing you and your Mom yesterday. Hopefully we made some progress. Your collection has certainly dwindled since the last trip. Terry was amazed! We both had a great time and are looking forward to the next trip.

Hi Lyn, so you built the chevy blazer kit.......not a bad model ether, see you are a modeler like the rest of us. when i started building it took me a while to figure out that it didnt take much glue,i have some of them and i dont think you could get them apart with dynamite..........now i know its not one tube of glue per kit. it snowed here last night....want some? ill put it in a baggie and send you some? id ask Marshal but i know he dont want any......Ed dosent want any ether......what am i going to do with it all? ........I know......take a fan and point it this way , turn it on high......think it will work? i think i got my model of a 71/72 olds toronado from you....it was blue. that was the first real car i owned....i got lucky...my brother helped me out with it....sort of a early Christmas present . i had wanted to find one for quite some time. hes now got me looking for some for him....have a great day!!! thanks, god bless. mark

Awesome to see you too Jim! I am still shocked that I saw some models that I hadn't seen before in there LOL. Hey make sure you send me a link if you use the dice I haven't seen any in a car yet B)

that wasn't my first build. it was a 55 chevy I believe I was 7 or so, of course my dad helped me put it together, he also painted it, but the funny part of that is I got to chose the color and when I did *chuckles* he must have asked me 5 times if I was SURE that was the color I wanted.. The color was like a dark grass green hahaha.. it so irked him to paint it that color but he did B) not sure what happened to that model, pretty sure there is a picture of it somewhere though.... good memories good memories B)

I'm thinking of drilling the holes, attaching a wire or string, and then trying trying some Fuzzi Fur (flocking) on them. Hopefully they'll look like the fussy dice of olden days.

Marshall was kind enough to make a set and send them back to me made, that is how I knew what to do with them. He also had an idea of maybe useing paint or glue on them then tossing em in a baggy with the flock then dotting them with paint when they were dry, I don't know if he's tried that or not. the set he sent back to me turned out awesome though.

I would think if you could get the seams right you could use felt would take a very steady hand though

Anytime I've touched paint to flocking the paint just flows into the flocking. I think the dots have to be done first.

The Fiats are in the purple pond.

was it you or Terry who told me what the purple pond was? I wouldn't have had a clue what you were talking about LOL

Hey, a different pic! Who said you wasn't a modeler? Here's PROOF POSITIVE!!! Looks like ya was buildin the Monogram 66 flip front Chevelle. How'd it come out? You GO girl!!!! :D:D

who knows George it ended up in dad's Model Car World somewhere lol. I was probably 9 there from the when the picture could have been taken at my Grandparents house, I have blocked out a lot of my childhood but I can kind of remember building a model there. LOL evidently I did, we have proof hahaha
