    So cool that you are incorporating the balsa wood models from your youth in your kit bash. I was building models in the early '60s and my go-to were the Wierd -Ohs models. They were fairly easy, by the number of parts,and left a lot of room for creative ideas paint wise, etc. Bash on...

    Cheap Copper

    I'm really digging this muscle build! That 3" slick is really beefy, and your frame and fork refresh turned out great. Like @hamppea said, there's a point at which you look at the bike and ride it and get a big grin on your face. That's probably the stopping point. My motto is "Always stop...

    PERSIAN EXCURSION (1969 Buzz Bike)

    Another themed, creative build by BobbyStillz ! This is before your time, I'm guessing, but it was the first thing I thought of when you mentioned Persian rug, and a 'ride' theme build along that vein. Maybe your aka could be "Magic Carpet Ride".

    '32 Ford Dra-Hag-ster Momma The former baby buggy engine compartment for Momma's Weirdo-oHs dragster has now become a custom trailer to haul her offspring. It seems Rat Fink is taking a particular interest in this young 'un. Hmmmm... Time for a "Name the Baby" contest. Ideas? Anyone? Beuller?

    Jake, I see you are using Tapatalk on your phone. I don't use that, I just use my Chrome browser to navigate RRB. So I'm not sure if that affects what you see or not. But on my personal computer, my Kindle Fire, and my Android phone, I see the exact same little menu bar right above where I...

    As Falstaff said, that B on the menu bar above where you start your comment stands for bold. Just touch the B and the words you type next will be in bold. Then touch the B again, and it will return to regular text. :thumbsup:

    Remind me of the Doublemint twins on the old commercials. The good old days when every other ad wasn't a pharm ad talking about the 7 ways the side effects could kill you.
