Re: History of the 1/32 Monogram Cooper Ford mold??

:laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling: All I remember is where to look things up! I do have the old car from the 1964 kit, the new RTR from a just a few years back, and the MRRC RTR. Frankly, I am thinking about getting this flared version. I like the way it looks, and you can stuf...

Re: Article about Slot Cars, LA Times

It was pretty clear when I read the article that this guy isn't really interested in researching this subject. He writes about cars and motorcycles for a big paper, which means its awfully hard for him to avoid being a gossip columnist (our own Jenny has to fight against that when she writes her exc...

Re: Paint recommendation please

I agree. When you consider how little of the Tamiya and Model Master paints you use to get a great paint job, its cheap. The Tamiya paints' series designations aren't absolute about hard plastic bodies. If the paint you want is "hot" that is, highly volatile paint intended for Lexan clear ...

Re: History of the 1/32 Monogram Cooper Ford mold??

Closed fenders were on the first one, the X-100, which was thick-bodied and nearly indestructible. That's why there are so many still around. There were several releases of it, with changes in box art every time. Later, the open, flared fenders came along, but so many of the original had sold it did...

Re: Scalextric Bill Collins Javelin

Mine came today. I am surprised to find it even more interesting than the two from earlier. Now I'm champing at the bit for the fourth.

Re: ALERT! PM Scalextric Javelin

Yeah, I got worried about getting left out so I bought mine elsewhere earlier.

ALERT! PM Scalextric Javelin

Professor Motor has the new Javelin in. Get it while you can. I got mine earlier and so I turned down mine from PM. Hurry. It won't last long.

Re: Carrera front headlight repair

Agreed. It takes only the slightest bump to kill them. I sold almost all of mine, and I was lucky they all arrived intact the way theu left here. I was sweating out the long delivery to Australia because the guy is a friend, and I just knew those blasted delicate boogers were going to mess up. They ...

Re: Sportsman Showdown Gallery 2018

That tortilla Camaro has the look of a very efficient chassis. I suspect a lot of potential there. I like the paint job, too.

Re: Need a soldering gun

I've used several fluxes over the years, all of the above work fine. The best thing I did was to push a large gauge hypodermic needle through the opening of a drip bottle I got with one of my Wellers. I Dremeled the sharp tip off and ground it smooth and round, and it is the best way to apply flux I...

Re: Need a soldering gun

It won't work for me because I need to dial in specific temps for different kinds of jobs and solders and fluxes. There's nothing wrong with it for slot car stuff, that's certain.

Re: Need a soldering gun

Congratulations! You have asked one of the questions that elicit tonnage in opinions that are all heartfelt and sincere. I'm a Hakko man myself. I had Wellers and before that a WEN (ask your grandfather- WEN is the grandfather of Weller). I still have all of them, in various conditions of repair, so...

Re: Tire Discussion

In addition to all these opinions, I can only add that if there is a Paul Gage tire that disappoints, you need to talk to him. He would be very concerned at that, and would fix it as fast as can be fixed. I am certain of that.

Re: A question about how your club enforces rules

I wondered if what you were doing was along the lines of preservation, rather than sticky-glue. If it makes the tires just like new, then it is impossible that it creates an advantage to my mind. From what you say, what you are doing is preservation of "like new" performance. If that is co...
