I've added a few new items to the Excelsior website as well as some pictures by some of the decals so you know what you are ordering.

The website I "inherited" when I purchased Excelsior is not real user friendly and adding stuff is kinda tedious.

I still havent done anything with the "Roachwerks" part but I'll get to it.

I worked on the site all day today and pretty much completed the "Centuri classic decals" section in the "Classic Waterslide Decals".

I got a good start on the Estes section but I have a ways to go.

I sure could use some feedback on the site.

Hey I just learned how to do this on Thursday!:eek:

Actually now that I get into it, no, it's not that bad.

The problem is...well, me.:eek:

I only learned how to do it last Thursday.:bang:
I just never did anything like that before.

Some of the pics of the decals aren't "exact".

See the graphics I have for anything white is printed in black on a seperate page, then I have to do the background in a different color so the white shows.

The other problem is that some of the decals use chrome (A-20 Demon) or Gold (Citation Patriot) well there just isn't a way to show chrome or gold on a web site.
Yer just gonna have to take my word on some of those.

Hey, Gordie! The website looks almost as good as it did before you started changing it! :p

Relax, I'm just kidding. ;) Actually, it is much improved. I like the addition of the thumbnails, as well as all of the great new decals that you have added. Hey, the best just keeps getting better!

Looking Great Gordie!

As for learning how to do your website... all it takes is some time.
I've been doing our website for about a year now, and I still fight with it and learn something new every time! :D

Yow! That is some spicy web spaghetti you've got there. Tables, nested tables, and more tables. Presentation code mixed with data, and <shudder!> it's all on Tripod.com!!!

And I bet to add a product you have to go into the page itself and type it in directly.

Ah...sorta, yea.:eek:

But after about 20 hours of doing it it's not that bad.:bang:

It's kinda like beating your head against a wall...it feels so good when you stop.

Hire that 4 year old kid in the Windows commercials to do the site updates for you. ;)

I've added more pics and some new decals I've been working on to the site.

The Colonial Viper was a pain to do but I got it finished!

How about a 137% upscale of the Colonial Viper? The finished model would be a tad over 16" long and fly on 24mm motors.

Any takers? Obviously I'll have to make a nose cone for it but I can do that.

I was thinking of a plan set not a kit. I'm too busy to do any kits right now.

The main body is a BT-56 and the turbo tubes need to upscale to 1.53" O.D. but the new SEMROC BT-58 is 1.54" O.D. pretty darn close.;)

Heck, I may just make one for me.:D

With all the &%^$ I've gone through with the Excelsior acquisition I haven't built anything for me since May!
