Thanks guys.  The whole purpose of Calnaga Castings is to contribute to the hobby by helping modelers have more fun and satisying experiences with their projects.  Resin casting allows me to share the effort that goes into the masters.  Many of the parts we sell were scratch built for my own models.  Additionally, I want to raise the standard of quality seen in model car resin castings.  Great models are built with great parts, and great models are fun to build.  Check out the Gallery at Calnaga Castings.  Thanks Again-Steve Perry

What do they cast?

Alan,

Calnaga Castings specializes in high quality 1:25 scale model car parts.  We have several categories that include High Performance (carbs, blower, fuel tanks, valve covers, etc) Powertrain (4x4 conversions, differentials, transmissisons), Marine (jet drive, boat seats, marine battery), Tires, and Miscellaneous.  We focus on scratch built masters or kit parts that have been enhanced for detail and buildability.  We avoid parts that are already on the market and simple kit knockoffs.

Regards,

Steve Perry

Steve's TOO nice a guy to blow his own horn, so I'll say it for him. He has won at the GSL just about everytime he's entered! He is a GREAT guy with a GREAT personality. He's a good family man, he brings both his kids to meetings, and they BOTH build too! ALL of Steve's stuff is TOP notch. If it's NOT good enough for HIM, you won't get it!

I saw a couple of Steve's builds at Toledo in 2011 and they were "over the top."

Thanks for the kind words George, you are an asset to the club (Downriver Model Car Club, Dearborn MI) yourself.  And I can't deny the part about being a nut.  Regarding GSL, here are some objective facts:  I've won Best of Class, Competition-Drag for the last four contests.  With the Prock and Howell '33 Willys in 2007, Freight Train twin engine dragster in 2009, Top Cat C/SA Cougar in 2011, and Bad Cracker nostalgia funny car in 2013.  But here's the thing:  At least one or several parts from each of those models is available to anyone through Calnaga Castings.  We truly offer "award winning model car parts" and we can back that up!

Regards, SP

Steve's boat stuff is the only stuff I know of for detailing. Jet drive, seats, and the full package of interior stuff is awesome.

The Dana axles are near the top of my "gotta get those" list. Other than that all I want to know is if he's tired of people asking him if he really is the guy from Journey. :rolleyes:
