I am just curious. :? I was thinking of having someone shill for me but decided it was tacky. I will shill for myself though. Check out my products at aardvarkmodels.net. :) :twisted:
Happy building and be sure you buy QUALITY resin from people who back it up and deliver!

Thanks,

Andy Martin

Unlike the "Brand -X" mag forum,I think these guys are cool with it.
Model Cars is more of community and builder forum to me.
I personally like to see guys post their products so we know what is out there to build with.

I personally would email the admins and ask first just out of respect.

You can also submit a sample for a magazine review and they will be sure to mention you and your company, along with contact information in an upcoming issue.
Just a guess but I would think one of your kits as a sample is cheaper than an ad and from there you could gauge reaction/interest and become a regular advertiser in the magazine if it warrants.

I haven't seen the admin here remove any posts that were a shameless plug (unlike the other guys) but have seen them remove a post that was in poor taste.

Let us know about new items as you develop them.

Andy, no problem showing off new products.
I have also reviewed the bug in MCM.
It's a great kit, can't wait to see more products from you.

i appreciate the fact that this forum is open to entreprenuers who want to show their resin products. its hard to get word out on good new products and i hope this place can serve as a forum to do that. i wish others would show their wares as well. maybe there can be a section to do just that? i mean if theres a new kit review section i dont really see the difference.

I may have it ready for NNL East. I am not sure. I just ordered the photo-etch. The pattern is ready but I must make molds, do up instructions and box art etc. I will at least have the pattern or castings on display. Price isn't set yet. Probably just shy of a bill. :shock: Thanks for asking.

If the past is any indication, Martin casted my Holy Grail: The Corvette SS.
To this date, this resin kit is still considered a benchmark in the industry. And it was casted more than 15 years ago.

I'm considering that Firebird III... not that I don't have enough projects :(

Thanks,

Oh stop you guys! You're embarassing me. :oops: Seriously though, I do really appreciate such kind words coming from such excellent model builders and nice guys such as you. Thank you very much.

Embarass Andy Martin, now there is a tough concept to get your head around! :D :D

How ya' doin', Andy? Hope all is well. Did this little guy ever come back home, or is he still buried at Herb's place in SoCal?

Actually, Zeb, this one was. It was done for CMA in the early 90s. I did the patterns, castings and first builds for Marshall Buck. He handled production. I think he said about 50 cars were sold. It was my finest hour, likely not to be repeated. Ah, memories!

Almost forgot, the above Ferraris were 1/14th scale. I know it's weird but it's a European thing like 1/43rd is. Makes no sense but 1/25th doesn't either.

1:43 scale is a British invention for model railroads. It is "O" scale done in the very sensible ratio of 7mm=1 inch. :roll: :roll:

1:25 scale is a USA invention. Detroit did a lot of modeling in 1:10 scale so it was easier to convert to 1:25 rather than 1:24.

Does that clear things up? :D :D (Or would you like to hear about how USA "O" scale is 1:48 scale trains on 1:43 scale track?)

Ya! I knew that, Dave! Can you explain 1/14th?? I know the answer but want to test you! Actually the 1/25 was back in the pantograph days and the patterns were 1/10 because the drawings that Detroit sent to the model companies were in 1/10. They set the pantograph to reduce by 2 1/2 to 1 which of course ends up being 1/25. Of course today everything is digital and they don't even need patterns unless you are doing historical re-enactments like us sorry resin casters.

Almost forgot! 1/43rd is 7MM to the Foot, not inch. 7 MM is a bit over a quarter inch so 7mm to the inch would be a bit bigger than 1/4 scale!!!!!!!!
I'll shut up now. :roll:
