  2. Okay... so why aren't my photobucket links showing up as images - they do on that OTHER site? Anyone care to enlighten me as to the proper way top display images? I'm more of a lurker here. Thanks! TT
  3. Hello Fellow modelers, A few years back, I took all of the classic old box art images I had grabbed over the years, and printed them out and pasted them for use as a backdrop for my model shelves. The result is something like this: <a href="http://s720.photobucket.com/albums/ww204/tomtest/?action=view&current=121609_0817Large.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i720.photobucket.com/albums/ww204/tomtest/121609_0817Large.jpg" border="0" alt="My model display wall"></a> <a href="http://s720.photobucket.com/albums/ww204/tomtest/?action=view&current=121609_0796Lar

  6. Thanks Old Man and Mike! I'll give sanding a try in a few days then. (FWIW, I did use a Badger battery-powered mixer to stir the paint first, as I had heard it was important). Next time, I'll try adding a little thinner, maybe some retarder to see if that makes a difference. All the best, Tom Test
  7. I'm almost done building my Hawk 48th P-51D. I used Tamiya spary paint, followed by a coat of Future, then decals and weathering - but now I'm in trouble.

  9. Here's a list of guys I've traded quite successfully with lately: Jim Reagan Ken Schmidt David Walker Bill Banaszak Dave O. Garcia Doug McComb All were pleasant, responsible, communicated well, and did what they said they would do - can't ask for anything more. Thanks guys! Tom Test
  10. I am yet another member of the club. Dan Godoin was very unpleasant to deal with, sent me items in a trade that were incorrect AND damaged, AND it took forever. He's a legendary jerk, and I heard from several other who have had troubles with him. Tom Test
