About Dave O'Meara (Grumpyoldman)

I'm rewriting this in a much more humoristic way, to help over inflate my ego, and place my self on a pedestal, because I don't have a life, and plastic models are the only thing I live for. I plead guilty as charged to excessive babble, light hearted humor, and continued encouragement to youngsters...


Had the same problem, I just thinned it down a little using a round file, and clamped it closed using a small set of crossing tweezers as the glue set. Nice job editing the photos Bill, (I know it drove you crazy!) made me look like I actually can use a camera.

Other thank a little tweaking of the clamp, I don't remember any other fit problems. Just watch out for the plastic eating tires. Trakz makes a replacement resin set.

Thanks guys. Pat I used my old camera for those photos: As I'm still trying to learn and figure out my new camera: I'll be using the old one for taking to work, and for shots there etc as it's small, and easy to carry in my lunch box, the new one will be used for studio work at home and going to shows. Sample of it's optical zoom: Little Lee keeping an eye on things across the room, about 22 foot. Should work good at the shore also!!!
