I started making a bunch of Halibrands in 1/25 scale sizes a few weeks ago and now it is sell better than everything else put together.  I would have never guessed there was such a market for them.

I bet you'd sell a ton of finned drums w/machined back plates to go with all the halibrands you've sold.

Thanks Charlie

I never thought of Buick drums.  I make disc brake rotors I will have to get started on drums.

We have 10% off this month Jeff.

Man, those are beautiful. I need to plan a build just to use your wheels.

Those are great.



Any chance of getting your Ansons made in 1/18 & 1/12 scale?

Those ARE nice!!! Do you HAVE the Ansen Sprint wheel? And if so, how much for a set of front and rear? I'd be interested in maybe 3 to 4 sets of them. (I had Ansen Sprint wheels on both my 69 Mopars!)
