I know there is some compression that takes place on the pic when it is posted and all pics are usually more clear after you click or tap on them. i am not sure what the formula is to get the immediate image sharper though as I don't understand all the forum settings. they look pretty clear though. Looks good too!
Probably everyone other than me knows this already but
I right click on the image in the original post and it will bring up a sub menu.
The first choice at the top of the menu is "Open link in new tab", then left click.
The link will appear in the address bar, file.php (**** x ****) then open that image.
It appears to be the size of the downloaded image if the image exceeds the maximum viewable image normally seen when just clicking the thumbnail in the post.
For me, a larger image is easier to see the details of the original pic.

Not suggesting every one uploads huge images though.
The max I usually shoot at is a setting of 3m so when I crop the image it is usually smaller. Hope this isn't running contrary to forum rules.

And the pics of the car look great!

Thanks Chuck....no its not Mikes but he does have a bunch of vintage onroad cars if anyone is interested.

I took the shock off and went with the original rear rod and spring setup to keep it authentic....still waiting on the body....this post office stuff is getting ridiculous

Does he have a list of his on road cars? Even if parts cars, that's fine with me.

Looks killer! With all that is going on with that paint, it is hard to believe it is crammed into a 12th scale body.

That turned out really nice! What's really fun is once you get your car dialed in with better cells is to teach the newer cars that these old things can still keep up. Once you put a super low turn brushed motor in there, hang on! These still take some skill getting them around the track at full speed!
