    Hey Dr. Cranky! I want to thank you for your tip on using PlastiKote sandable primer. I used to use Tamiya but it was so expensive for the volume of product in the can. PlastiKote goes on smooth, self levels, dries smooth, covers colored bodies or residual paint with 2-3 light coats, doesn't blob, sands well and doesn't eat plastic like lacquer eats a styrofoam cup. Only problem is buying it locally. Some automotive stores have it as well as Farm & Fleet, but selection of colors is limited. Thanks-Jim

    I am trying to duplicate your salt licker and having trouble finding all the decals? I've been to model roundup and purchased the "Lucky Numbers". You mentioned Slixx and I cant find the Numbers to the salt licker? Need help but I love your vids! ....And I still want a shirt! Thanks! ~Rene Gingras Charlestown Ma.

    Hello Dr.Cranky,, Koolmodels 49 here in your lab, not really! Ummmmm, just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that Im going through some hard financial times now and this is one of the reasons why I havent posted any vids lately. I also take alot longer to do my builds to make sure I do them good. One last reason is that I just cant seem to get my vids to turn out right.. bad lighting and stuff. Im working on it . there are a few items I would like from your store but funds are to low. Soooo with that being said, I still watch everyones vids and am still around. I will try and put a vid. up this weekend.. Thanx for your time... catch you on the flip side !!!

    Wonderful work on this site sir.Styrene sniffing and glorious rust and rods!
  • 2 years 6 months ago
    I've spent over an hour going through some of your pics.  I'm going to be coming back often for inspiration and to hopefully finish seeing your works of art.  Love all the rust effects.  Going to have to try it.

    I want to thank you for all you've done for the hobby.  It's no small accomplishment and you should be proud.  I recently found some excellent "rust" models at an abandoned model car forum.  The "send a virtual tumbleweed" line makes it clear!  Here's a link to one builder's rat rods and rust. Not the best, but good fun and the missing parts, engines wheels, etc are then available for other models (sort of 2 kits in one!).  Here's the link: Again, thanx!  harron68

    Greetings from the UK Doctor, 

     I just want to say thank you for all the great work and topics you have covered in the cranky show and all of your clinics, I've recently gotten into model making (coming from an RC background) and have found your clinics very helpful. 

    Again, many thanks for all the help

    I live in New Jersey and wanted to know if you can direct me to a specific place that sells the Dupont clear A7480s. I checked online stores and went to pepboys and other automotive stores alike and was unsuccessful. I've been trying to contact you for a while and I hope this works.
