Sooo many posts, sooo little time!
Posted by PotatoCam on Friday, November 17, 2017 5:40 PM

I don't know if anyone else has had this thought (I'm sure someone has, lol!), but it has occurred to me that I wish I had more time to peruse the forums. There are so many great WIPs to follow, so many great tips and other things to learn...having recently returned to these forums I am just not sure how I'll ever get to see all the Works In Progress in particular! But I do know I'll have a great time trying. Big SmileCool

I only like to build certain types of cars and tend to stick with viewing those sections of the forum.  Muscle cars, hot rods, sport cars, trucks, and factory stock.  I may view some of the other sections below those if I feel like it.

I know how you feel, PJ. I remember when I first discovered this forum (actually, model forums in general) and I was overwhelmed by the sudden availability of tips, techniques, and great builds. As a model builder I spent the vast majority of my time building and creating on my own. I was hungry for information and the SAE magazine was an awesome find, but once I discovered the forum I was blown away at how much information and inspiration there was to soak up. And there still is. After 14 years on this forum I still learn something new almost everytime I log in.

If only we had this information when I was a kid wow what kinda of modeler I could be now lol I had no clue what was going on with model cars in the 70s I thought a tooth pick was my ideal to keep the glue from being the pant job or keeping a clear windshield. Was I ever wrong .I had never heard of using foil for chrome trim the frist time I saw that on you tube an then it was explained how on here I knew then I was only a rookie at best an had no clue how to be a modeler.
