Hello, im looking to order some parts from Freds resin but cant find any info. I went to the website over the last few weeks and cant log in. Says closed for short time due to illness. Ive never met Fred but as a fellow modeler and human im woundering if all is well with him?
Anyone know more?

Fred has been very ill for quite some time, he tried to tell me what was going on with him but I never quite understood what it was during our last e-mail conversation over 5 months ago, He has not responded to any of my e-mails to bid him well
He is a great guy to do business with, he will do whatever it takes to help you with what you need. He has alot of great Short Track modified parts for sale. Be patient and wait to see what develops and say a prayer for the guy that he would get well again.

Best Regards
Jim T

I assume that you weren't referring to Fred's Custom Models, a fire and emergency apparatus resin caster? He had some neat items, but his business practices left something to be desired... He had a reportedly had a stroke about 5 years ago or so. He eventually passed away I believe(?). His line of products was never picked up or sold to the best of my knowledge. Just wanted to clear that up if that was who you were talking about...

i gave up trying to register for the forum after a couple of years    http://www.fredsresi...forum/index.php


i think the problems were just overwhelming the Owner and exacerbating the health situation. if you're dealing with chronic illness, it affects every aspect of life. even well wishers and meaningful do-gooders get on your nerves. 


sometimes a guy just has to go down the rabbit hole for a spell ....
