Hello all, I am wanting to place an order with Motor City Resin for a couple kits (The Torino and Ranchero) and was just wondering about them as a company. I've never dealt with them before and i've not read anything negative but i'm just wondering about the quality of the castings, (campared to, lets say, the Modelhaus) turn around time for shipping and general service overall.
Thanks

I have one that I am working on I posted some pictures of it in the resin section here last nite. I have never had Modelhaus resin before, but have had some resin from F&F,Replicas in miniature, perrys, and jimmy flintstone. I would consider the Motor City stuff as really good quality and you could build a respectable model.

Thanks guys, I had a feeling they were good to deal with. Just wanted to be sure as I have have had other casters that are on this forum, burn me so i'm being more careful when dealing with companies for the first time.

I just had ta throw my .02 worth. Jeff has a winner in those Torino Kits! I have the wagon, I've seen the castings on the Ranchero, and they ARE like a regular plastic kits! The quality is just as good as the Modelhaus, in my opinion! By all means,go ahead and" order with confidence",as they say,You WON'T be sorry!Posted Image Posted Image

I am building the 69 Formal Roof Cobra right now and it is like working with plastic. The kit matches up perfectly to the AMT 69 Cobra kit. The quality from Jeff and service is fantastic.

Hi Ben
you'll be very happy with Jef's resin products. If you'd like to chat with him he's in the PSAB chat room every evening.

Yes, they are nice kits. Service is great as well. Jeff put alot of work into his masters and, his molding proccess. All that hard work pays off in the end. Shop with them once and, you will be abck for more.
