  1. that would be a heckuva big wheel. this may help: Pantone Color, Chips & Color Guides | Color Inspiration | Pantone
  2. i have Wheels Across the Desert by A. Goudie and Libyan Sands by R.A. Bagnold books for initial research (scale model building) but wondered if there was more information available. also have bookmarked some YouTube videos. if anyone could suggest resources for vehicle modifications, it would be appreciated. thanks
  3. so in the tradition of buying myself a hobby gift for the season, i have a new OptiVISOR DA-7 2.75x (yes, proprietary brand!) on its way to me. i will surely not be waiting until december 25th to open! thanks to all for the inputs & advice.
  4. i have 2 of the 2.5 & a 10x, but am tempted to buy just a lens for experimentation.
  5. surgical or dental; whatever they are called - i did a search and came up null. i want something better than optivisor of tamiya. any recommendation? about "3x" would be good; currents (above) are 2.5x so i might like to go a little stronger. thanks
  6. was anything ever done with this remnant?
  7. wow; quite impressive: unobtainium - Alfa Romeo 8C Wire wheel upgrade anyone have a connection w/ Scale Motorcars? since the spring, i've tried to log in, register, re-register ad nauseum including an email to the administer - with no luck . any help gratefully appreciated. thanks
  8. one of the basic tenets of writing & public speaking is to tailor the presentation to your audience.

  10. you might want to get started with a few kits to get the feel of things. https://woodlandscenics.woodlandscenics.com/show/category/JustPlugLightingSystem https://evandesigns.com/pages/video https://lights4models.com/ and then can sound be far behind? https://www.fantasonics.com/ http://www.fantasonics.com/manual.pdf https://www.ngineering.com/
  11. regardless of the method of presentation, the magazine requires being "made". I think the other obstacles are an excuse for that not being done. even the ardent supporters lament coverage of 2 year old contests. sometimes it's just "time", ya know? it doesn't always equate with what we want, but denial can only go so far. reality always wins. used to work with a fellow who told the story of "Thought". Thought was brought up on the gallows. Thought didn't think he was going to be hung. but he was.
  12. impressive endorsements for such a moderately priced unit. I like it and the American beauty model here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007S20H0Q/?coliid=I1846ADLBVCWM0&colid=FEDCRO6LYELH&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it i'm not getting hobby time for a couple of months so I have time to cogitate for a bit, as well as save my pennies! thanks for all the inputs.
