Lamb-a-gedden

I kind of like that one, Tim. Or, Lambo-gedden.

Do you know what could happen if I cross 1.21 gigawatt streams by accident? I don't know, but it could be bad.

This really sparks my attention as I’m slowly getting back in to building.

I'm not trying to be a "Puritan" , or anything.... but has anybody else noticed the ad that pop's up right next to this thread ?

I dont think I can post the actual wording of the ad, 

Something to the effect of   " do your wife for 3 hour's  with this new drug"

Not really sure this ad belong's here, and i havent been on any erectile dysfunction site's so, where is it coming from ? 

Now, to get back on trak...... does this look familiar ?

You dont have "Taylor" helping with this build ....do you? 

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".

Hey Tim--with all that you got going on--I didn't expect to see you post any time soon. Good to hear from you.

littletimmy

No--I don't see that at all. I am not surprised though, with the site being unsecured. Easy prey.

Yes! Of course! November 5, 1955! That was the day I invented time-travel. I remember it vividly. I was standing on the edge of my toilet hanging a clock, the porcelain was wet, I slipped, hit my head on the sink, and when I came to I had a revelation! A vision! A picture in my head! A picture of this! This is what makes time travel possible: the flux capacitor! It's taken me nearly thirty years and my entire family fortune to realize the vision of that day. My God, has it been that long?

You may be onto something there!

Here is something to chew on: In the 1960 HG Wells movie Time Machine, the lead actors stage name is Rod TAYLOR. There is that name again,Taylor. Both charactors were fed up with their time in history and both looked to the future for hope. Perhaps, it is the same dude traveling back and forth in time. Perhaps... Taylor skewed the space time continuum leading apes to rule the world. WOW! Idea

I received my PE yesterday, below is what you get. Heck--they even threw in a gift for me. It's a (cough) high quality item. I wonder how much it set them back. Ah well--I am sure they can afford it.

I did a little work on things. The time circuits switch is glued down to the center console. The instructions call it the accumunter. The clear portion is positioned for show and it needs more work. That little assembly was a bear to fit. The original piece as used on the DeLorean would simply not fit. So, I did lots of cutting.

Taped to the dash is the time circuits panel with gauges. I will try and morph them to the dash. With some luck, I'll have them backlit too. More casting to be done and I will try TBs Land Ladys trick. I hope it works.

End of update

PS: We could turn it into a trophy. Then-- we run a monthly contest. We pick a most valuable poster for the month and send the trophy to them. Then-- the next month we pick a new winner. 

What should the criteria be for said award?

 That's actually a COOL IDEA !!!

Bakster
We pick a most valuable poster for the month and send the trophy to them. Then-- the next month we pick a new winner. 

But,... what if the "winner", doesn't give the "prize" back ?

Bakster
What should the criteria be for said award?

Worst assembly goof. ( bad seam, putty mess, bent frame, paint mistake's , ECT... )

AN EXAMPLE :

Bad seam filling !

ANOTHER EXAMPLE:

Messed up Camoflague !

you get the idea...

I like you ideas, I surely do. And don't call me Shirley.

Something tells me we might offend someone. Like, dude! Your model sucks, and just to prove it, here is an award. Lol.
