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...

Re: In my best Jimmy Hendrix...

Hey there, hill hopper! Hoyt Axton is so homey and familiar, he isn't so hard, but Jimi is impossible with my brain, drugs or not. I can't do Mozart either! If I did the drugs Steppenwolf did, I'd probably come out close to them, but NO!!!! I don' wanna!!!! I'll take reality straight, no chaser!

Re: In my best Jimmy Hendrix...

Yeah. It was amazing what that man recorded. Some of his best were songs he wrote himself. Everything from traditional Bluegrass to country to progressive folk, to hard hitting rock blues. He's one of the ones I miss most.

Re: 34 Ford Panel Van

Isn't it funny how that simple little kit has been so popular that there are more of them that people held onto than anything else? Its happy hunting ground looking for these little trucks, and they are infinitely customizeable with loads of room inside. I even thought about reversing the chop of th...

Re: Scaleauto Pagani Zonda and all those little parts!

I have had that white kit for years and I keep chickening out. Yours looks great.

Re: waaytoomuchintothis call you out..

They are locking tuners, Ken. I can't help it- I'm going to go on and on about this... By the time I was gathering the last bits and bobs for this thing, I was going first class no matter what. So, they are British locking tuners, I forgot the name already. They are amazing. You want to restring the...

Re: heller/atlantis Talbot/ alfa kit

The Talbot Lago has a long winning history with some very famous drivers. That name has appeared on some incredible cars over the years. The 1937 Talbot Lago is the most beautiful car ever built for my money.

Re: How much weight to add when removing

Unless you are only running on ovals, the only thing that matters is front-to-back positioning for center of gravity. I have tried side pod weights in all kinds of situations, and unless its an oval, it just doesn't matter, no matter how much sense it makes. Meanwhile, the overall weight has to be p...
