Re: No route found for "GET /viewtopic.php"

This error message is getting to be a MAJOR headache for me. Your forum changed recently (format, site type, whatever) and it has been happening ever since then. Perhaps you should change back?

Re: No route found for "GET /viewtopic.php"

Whatever the cause, the web site does not recognize me as a member when I open the forum. If I log out, then in, it seems to work fine. Webmaster, how about solving this aggravation for us? Gary

Being an old Navy man, this design sure reminds me of a ship or aircraft carrier. You could first do a ferry of some sort and then build another "reverse" ironing board to use as a dock later... where the bow of the board would mate to a matching V-shape in the pier. Sort of a two part or ...

This range of figures hasn't featured before on this thread: http://www.sundancecentral.org/merchandise/ At scale of 1:20.3 Possibly a tad large for some. Gerry, I know the Sundance guys very well and the figures they have are actually a tad too small in my mind for 1/20. The are nicely sculpted an...

I'd like to hear more about how strong, durable and easy to assemble this model cycle chain is. It would be hard to beat the Servo-link stuff for easy of assembly, gear selection, durability, etc., eh? Gary

Two other tips... I mix my activated charcoal with 50/50 white glue to hold it down. But the glue mix can pool at the bottom of your coal bin / tray and take forever to dry. So, I remove the tender shell and drill a few holes in the corners / center for the excess glue to drain from. I put the shell...

For years I used activated charcoal sold for fish tank filters. It looked just like 1/2" scale coal. If you can still find some, get as much as you can. It's also far cheaper in bulk. But most of the new stuff is peletized and looks like rodent droppings. Gary

Some ideas for you... Gary Use ABS cement, the kind plumbers use. I've had good luck with it joining dissimular types of plastic. I've heard Loctite makes a cement that will work on Delrin and other "slimy" plastics. Might be worth a try. I have no links, sorry. Drill and pin the parts wit...
