    Mater

    I been working on mater today and other then a few added glue tabs I really didn't run into any problems yet. The pickup body came out great. I only added some shredded paper in all the nooks and cranies to stiffen up the model.and then closed them up. Cabs done and also filled. The reason I am stiffening up model it is going to a 4 year old lad.

    The photo will come up later.

    The following fotos are a done luigi.:-D

    Quick progress update

    Apologies for not being further along. Work requirements have eaten into my last few days off. I hope to have this one ready sometime over the weekend.

    Computer Woes

    Years ago when I was trying to decide on a system to spend my hard earned money on I went into a book store to find out how many programs I could get and on what system I had to have to run them. boy was I surprized to find 10 books at about 500 pages full of software I could use for a system called IBM compatibles. :-D I also found this small booklet that said these programs where Macintosh compatibles.:( In the large books each page had about 100 programs available.:) The little booklet didn't even have 100 in the whole book.:cry:

    Now they say that Mac's can be converted to run Windows programs designed for IBM compatibles.:-?

    What's wrong with this picture??:roll:

    Buy A Dell:grin:

    No OS wars here.

    If there's one thing I really do have little tolerance for it's OS bashing.
    As an IT professional for the last 7 years it's my opinion that if you're happy with what your computer does for you regardless of platform then you have the right computer for you.

    As a designer I try to make sure that everything I do gets released (eventually) in a multi-platform compatible format.

    As a moderator in a cardmodel forum it's my rule that we don't bash OS's here since it has nothing to do with card modelling.

    To go back on topic the Sheriff BETA is now ready for download!
    Have a great day everyone.

    Your right Webdude, It's just a pity some stuff doesn't run on a Mac, And It's just matter of what you prefer, I don't think a Mac or an Microsoft machine is superior..

    :( SORRY didn't mean anything bad.
    I just feel bad that not everyone can enjoy the craft like everyone else.

    mater

    Mater done went together fairly well Had to make one part.
    the piece infront of the engine compartment where the radiator would be located, and a hole bunch glue tabs that where missing.
    added a brace under the boom so it won't break off to easy.
    spooled black thread and made a hook brace.
    I Messed up my tail lights and have to make new ones, Thats later.
    Now I'm starting the King.

    No problem and it's no offense meant to either you or Billy. I have seen this kind of thing spiral out of control and turn very very ugly on other forums so quickly it'll make your head spin. As we do have a lot of younger visitors to this forum and this thread more and more (according to my emails at least) I simply thought it best to do a "Barney Fife" and 'Nip it in the bud'. :grin:

    Shoot. That's probably nicer than my builds going to be.....boom hoist looks like it went smoothly.
    Lack of tabs on the eng comp piece noted. (I've got a text file in each cars folder where I'm putting this info)
    Getting ready to start designing Red.
