Re: Wheel Inserts

There we go. I hoped we'd get a groundswell of old timers!

Re: Figure 8 oval?

A few years back, the Chicago crazies did a destructo figure 8 flat track with a crossover, and it was routed!!! They staged a race!?!? that encouraged insane additions to cars, like giant wood screws, knife blades, claws, talons, etc. Not surprisingly, I don't think a winner was declared. But there...

Re: Wheel Inserts

Here's some of the ones I use. The ones in the little zip locks were made by someone on HRW, or their friend- it was a long time ago. Maybe someone out there remembers? There are also some excellent casters on our scratch building topic. https://s6.postimg.org/b396mos2p/IMG_2164.jpg https://s6.posti...

Re: New toy in the shop!

Ah yes, a Lucas Resurrection! And that car was built before the silly looking big black bumpers on British Leyland cars. It might pre-date BL altogether, which would be great. When that Midget was built, they were still making the sister car, the Austin-Healy Sprite, which by the time this was built...

Re: Some of my Board track racers on display.

And he's really, really good at all of them. I wanna be his next door neighbor so I can watch the things he makes come rolling out of the garage.

Great article, don't miss this!

I got a hit on this article because I had a typo on a search, and I am so grateful for old man hands that sometimes miss keyboard keys. For those of you who born after 1965 or so, the names like Stirling Moss, Jack Brabham, Juan Manuel Fangio, Phil Hill, etc, might be the stuff of stories and race a...

Re: Monogram/PM Kit in!

Yeah, it was a great time to be teenager, all right. The first of the Monogram chassis for the stockers was a real embarrassment. Several problems that were exaggerated by a big spur gear and out of scale small tires. They got better pretty quick. For us it was an excuse for tearing into it with lot...

Re: Monogram/PM Kit in!

This is going to be very interesting. The Monogram bodies were great, the nice interior is a big bonus, and because so many of us have done all kinds of stuff with these exact bodies, folks who are new to all this will have a tremendous available library of information to draw from. No fear! I expec...

Re: 1/28 Scale

I was in the middle of that one. 1/28 was never going to displace 1/32 or 1/24. It was apparently intended to establish a new scale, a huge gamble. Ninco had done a new scale plan of similar size that was a disaster some time ago, bolstered by an ultralight body and an unexplainably transparent chas...

Re: Racing at Gameovers Garage

I once cooked two 21 pound whole pork shoulders on my grill in a driving snowstorm for 14 hours. Neighbors worried about me and kept bringing me coffee, which ruined the flagons of beer I consumed. This is what happens when your neighbors all have darling sweet good girl children who bring coffee an...
