Re: How Many (1/32) Slot Cars In Your Stable?

Update: I sold all of my HO stuff- over 700 cars, hundred's of chassis, track, etc.
Since then my 1/32 stock has increased to 1200+, but a much greater percentage of them are scratchbuilt now.

Re: Classic Gar Vic find

I got the body from Patto, and I am ready to build my own antique. But since the temperature in my slot car area is 18F!!! I'll have to postpone the work for now.

Re: Me vs Jagermeister

One of the best painters and all around good guys here at HRW was Lee, in Florida. He painted everything that would stand still in classic Gulf colors. Not only slot cars, but all kinds of stuff, including a snow scooter, or whatever they are called, and some household appliances. He once painted a ...

Re: Let it snow? How is the weather out there?

Sarge left Indiana to live away from the arctic temps, and he and I (and I think some others) searched out a spot that was nearby a good VA hospital. He went to NC, near Ft. Bragg, and it got really cold soon after he got there. We miss ya, David. Mt. Washington set a new record at -96F today. The r...

Re: Me vs Jagermeister

1. Yes, you are obsessed with orange (in a good way) 2. Wasn't that Opel V-8 a nice surprise, straight from the box? I have a different livery but I pullit out to run all the time, it seems. 3. For me, Jagermeister is best as a shot, immediately after swallowing beer, then a second swig of beer to c...

Re: Do you come from a land down under?

Yep. My wife and I have been planning and dreaming a trip to Melbourne to see her pals, and our own HRW Lynn, then on to points north. Maybe NZ will stand still long enough to see it, too... Its so expensive, and the flight so tortuously long, the tendency is to cram as much as humanly possible into...

Re: Do you come from a land down under?

I'll second that. And Marmite is proof that yeast is for breads and only to be used in very small quantities. YUCK!

And I must add, Tim-Tams are what chocolate was invented for.

Re: Molotow Chrome on Lexan?

That's right... the chrome effect is made by the lighter fine particles coming to the surface. I never would have thought of that until too late. Thank you very much! I wonder if using the pen on the inside and immediately turning it over would work? I have some spare Lexan in the shop, and I will t...

Molotow Chrome on Lexan?

Has anyone tested this? I got one of the reproduction Gar-Vic Firebird bodies from Patto, and I'd like to dress it up.

Re: Do you come from a land down under?

We almost lost them a few years back, when an earthquake seriously threatened to toss the whole mountain, vineyard and all, into the ocean. I can't imagine the terror of grading with a bulldozer on a terrance on the side of a mountain, and feeling a major earthquake rumble up under you.

Re: Do you come from a land down under?

LOL!!! :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling: Actually, we see Brokenwood here, and our image of NZ is seriously stilted as a result. Who knew C&W music made it to NZ???? My friends in NZ never mentioned what music they listened to, and now they are gone walkabout (2 years), fa...

Re: HO ROUTED TRACK ?

The problem to overcome is that you need a 1/16th router bit (not easy to find- you need a collet to hold a Dremel router bit in a real router). As with any cutting tool, when it gets hot, its ruined, and when the tool is that small, it gets hot fast, especially in dense material like MDF. The best ...
