I'm getting back in the hobby after over 30 yrs out. SO much new I'm amazed. I've bought over 30 kits so far & haven't finished one yet. So many choices! I haven't worked w/resin as it wasn't around in the "old days". Found some conversion parts at Bandit resins. Would anyone recommend them? Comments appreciated.

Most casters do include instructons for using resin . It would not hurt to tell the caster this is your first time with ...your 1st order . Many tips are in this catagory . And ...you always can ask here . Thanx ..

Ive been in this hobby a long, long time. Ive dealt with MANY resin casters. Some professional companies, some fly by night companies. Had issues with quality from most of them at some point in time or another. I have to say that Bandit Resins is one of the most professional company i have dealt with in a long time. I had a slight issue with an item, and they quickly and effeciently remedied the situation with no questions asked. I would buy from them and recommend them to anyone. Thanks Bandit!

Kenny is a great guy to deal with, met him at a show a few years back and he is one of us, a model builder! He is friends with Eric at P&P /Porky's Resin and they usually are set up close to one another at shows. His stuff is nice and hopefully he has some new stuff in the works!

Kenny is one of those rare casters- the only issue I have with him is I never buy enough from him! I'm always happy with the quality of the product and service from Bandit, and his prices are very reasonable, to boot.

I agree, bought my 1st resin from him and it is great, especially being my 1st attempt. I emailed him and even though he was re-working the master he found what I wanted and got it to me ASAP. Great communication also, I definately will be a return customer

Nick, you can trust me on this . I happen to know Ken and his wife personally. Both are some hard working NO B. S. folks , just like me . Unlike some of the people / casters here , I can tell ya , I have watched ken in action and he is one demanding character . You would think cause he has trouble with one hand he's not capable of such masterful work , yer wrong . I wish I was working full time again as Ken makes a lot of the product I would gladly buy given the chance . Hey, check out bandit resins .com , you'll be glad ya did ! Ed Shaver
