I emailed a month ago or so, and he shot me a reply right away answering my questions. I plan to purchase the Maverick 4 door he does.

Does anyone know how to get in touch with Perrys Resin. I've tried contacting him through the link on his website, but haven't heard back. I find this unusual as they've always responded to e-mail.
Thanks for any help.

This is my first time dealing with Perry's Resin... and I'm afraid that it's going to be my last. I ordered a simple little $5 resin scoop for my Tamiya Porsche 962 kit back in May, and here it is halfway through August with no results. No response to my emails, and when I called the place on the phone I had a great conversation with the gent on the phone. Except for the part where he told me that he sent it out six weeks ago, and that he would send out another one. This was in early July. I really want to try on the resin Ferrari 333SP, but if I can't get a $5 scoop in three months, what's gonna happen with a $155 kit? I'll get what I need from Strada Sports.

I live not to far away from Randys Hobby shop:

http://www.daileyhobbies.com/

He's a great guy to deal with and his product is Excellent, his store is the only real HS in a big area and its always busy !!! Product
is well worth the wait and as noted above our mail system leaves a lot to be desired. I would give him another call.

Randy has told me chilling accounts about the Mail in the Great White North . Well , maybe a little lower where our Canadian Friends live . You know what , these are true accounts . He isn't making this stuff up . We make jokes about "going Postal" and complain about our Postal service . They have it bad , we do not . His stuff is Superior to the Average Caster . Best way , meet him at the Shows . Or , fantasy thinking , go to his Hobby Shop . Thanx ..

I would think it would be better to use Fed Ex or other when shipping to/from Canada instead of regular mail. I've never had problems w/ Fed Ex from other countries.

Courrier would be great its the cost up here,as an example I sent to big rig kits to fellow in Ohio cost 48.00 Cdn via Ups,
he sent me two back cost him 22.00 US. Anything we do tack 13% tax onto as well. The interesting thing I was going to send the kits by Canada Post they were more expensive then Courrier !!

As noted Randy's resin is awesome and his HS is great, we are close to Toronto and his shop is by far better then anything in the city.HS are few and far between up here these days !! He is a busy man, I don't know when he gets a chance to cast !!

I am from Canada and I buy a lot of things online, from Canada, the US and other countries , and have always got my stuff, sometimes it's a long wait, but I do get my stuff. The usual wait for stuff shipped from the US to Canada with USPS First class is 2 - 3 weeks, maybe a month max. I also shipped items to the US (about 150 times) and on that only one complained she didn't get the item (although I believe she only wanted it free...) 1 time out of 150, I think it's good.

I would like to buy parts from Perry's Resin, but heard too many bad feedback about him, not about the quality of his parts, but because of too many people that never received the parts they ordered...

I have several parts that I have bought at local shows that were made by Perry's and they are nice but after the last order I placed taking over two months with nothing but excuses and lies, I got my money back through my credit card and vow to never order from him again!

If you want to order from Perry's Resin, e-mail Randy to check availability first. If he says the item is in stock, you'll probably get it fast. If he says he will cast it, it will take some time. If he doesn't answer your e-mail and you really, really need that item, wait for a month or two and e-mail him again.

I've ordered from him before, I got the items within a month and the casting is top notch. But I made sure the item is in stock before I placed my order.

Phone calling Perry's Resins is the best recourse . I am still on the lookout , Randy , for the first one you sent me on my last purchase . I bet it went to Tialand . I give up looking for it . He or a close friend of his keeps on this site . Excellent castings . Thanx ..

Just a personal thought. Why would anyone buy a product from a business that has such a checkered review history? Regardless of the product offered, it seems like it just isn't worth the risk. No one would buy from a Ebay seller with a 50% positive feedback rating, so why do modelers still order?

That would make sense, you would think
