    At first you would almost think of a movie prop….. after your dust off, she looks like a nicely weathered working girl with a scrape or two. Very nice find

    Hermank, I agree with you…. All this grumbling and comments regarding the question of the day. Boys, it’s JUST A SINGLE QUESTION in a 24 hour span.

    Does it hurt you ? Do you feel bad if you get it wrong ?
    Seems to me the time spent carrying on about it, you could have had another bit of a boat finished.
    Like me spending the time composing this, I could be into my second cup of nuclear 💥radioactive 🔥waste coffee of the morning.

    Mmmmmm. Coffee 👍

    A fellow builder suggested draping the cloth, use clips as weights on what would be the scrap glass. If needed, tack a few spots with a lil c.a. Then the epoxy…….

    We’ll see how that works out on current project…. Stay tuned on a few months

    West wind. You said automotive spray paint…
    I cannot emphasize enough test. T e s t. TEST the surface being painted. These paints are becoming more environmentally friendly but I’ve seen some of these ruin plastic and other surfaces.

    It’s easier to test instead of strip.
    There’s my itty bitty 2 cents

    I firmly believe the majority of man kind will be unemployed because of all this computer stuff. Yes yes yes it has it’s places…..BUT hearing a human answer a company phone and directing you to the correct department……. a human cashier….. etc…. But I am tired of people saying there are no jobs

    Maybe I’m just getting olde

    With all the experience out there, what is your favourite homemade tool you use during a build. I figure you more experienced builders have some great ideas that us novice folks could use.
    I think it will be a “ holy $@&% why didn’t I think of that “ moment. So please share with a photo or two
    Thank you…

    Mr. Lightfoot is as down to earth as one can get. I thanked him for sharing his songs and the stories they told especially the Fitzgerald
    The song about the Fitz was one that needed to be told ( his words )…. I wish he had more time that night, but he had prior commitments. He joked about going for coffee, I told him it’d be an honour to pick the tab.

    Hermark,
    You’ve probably heard of my mentor…. Non other that Jack Daniels himself.😎
    We’ve spent countless hours fixing world problems🤓, just didn’t write them down at the time and couldn’t remember the fixes the next day.
    There’s no answers at the bottom of a whiskey bottle, just a couple of cures along the way.

    Joint pain, sedation, cure for insomnia etc…

    No one else has that boat... then you have to get it.
    Remember, modelers are not hoarders...

    Now Fred….. this is something I have learned over the the years when it comes to buying a model. Cursing yourself, the should have, why didn’t you and the hole in my itty bitty heart for not doing it…. Far out weighs the POSSIBILITY of any kind of guilt regarding a purchase of a kit.

    Price divided by hours of build = low cost entertainment and frustration. Probably about the same as 2 beers per hour. And what will last longer ?

    GO GET IT

    Boys, I’ve seen messy rooms…. My daughter for instance…. Stuff all over the place and can’t find a thing.

    Now my hobby room just happens to have a lot of tools, plans, more tools, wood, things, stuff, other things, misc etc etc etc almost looks the same guess…. But I know where EVERYTHING IS

    Behind that closed door that hides it all. But it ain’t messy ! Just busy 🙄
