I don't recall anything about Scale Technologies, but they had some machined aluminum brake rotors and resin calipers:

I think Curbside Dioramics was part of R&D Unique?:

You have absolutely no idea how bad I've been wanting one of these.

Well start building then...

I have a truck I'd like to build myself.  I keep procrastinating hoping someone will do the conversion and sell it as a resin. Of course that will only happen once I do the work.

Man that Mercedes is just awesome. I imagine that it's hard to find and cost a couple of limbs.

I thought it might be a good idea to post and list some long out of production resin casting businesses and/or their products for future reference, as there were many interesting and unique items produced which may never again see the light of day, save for the secondary market.

 

Let's start with Pinecrest Resin's Ford offerings:

Man would I love to get my hands on the '87 to '91 single cab!

Creedence Clearwater Revival?  When the band broke up they tried to do resin parts. That kinda tanked too.

What happened to Clint Freeman Components!?


He got tired of having his stuff repopped so he closed up shop in 2005. I have a bunch of his stuff, it was top notch. CFC came after R & C trucking. Clint was the 'C' in that operation.
A couple of the R & C engines and maybe a couple other things carried over to the CFC line.
Occassionally his stuff shows up on ebay and goes for a lot. I remember a couple of his Cat engines going for about $170 each last year.

I saw this thread before and had a comment about it, but kept my trap shut. I guess I'll open it now. So how would someone who had the equipment, knowledge, capital AND several desirable resin kits be treated if they were copied and made available?

That would depend on weather the original caster was still in business. I have  a former AAM kit in my catalog (with permission). So do several other casters.   Now, if one was to copy somebodies stuff that is still in operation,,,,,,,,,, you my be frowned upon.

Well I'm not getting into a pissing match but my Mike's Studebaker is a bullet nose '50, R&R made a a '52 convertable. Distinctly different front sheet metal. I have been hearing about the Missing Link Chevy for a couple years, I'll believe it when I see it. But I will be very happy when it arrives.

I haven't read through every single post; but this is a prime example why we should all support the aftermarket companies (when we can afford to do so); because this stuff is way more limited in production than any styrene kit.........that so many scramble out to the store (or on-line) to snatch up right away. I've seen it happen way too often to count at the model shows where someone will show interest in some aftermarket product (typically a resin kit or body); and put off buying it because they think it will always be available......or they can order it down the road......or they need to see how much money they have left after filling up their bags with readily available kits. Nine times out of ten they never place an order; and then call (or e-mail) you 3-4 years later asking if it's still available. The guys in the cottage industry bust their butts to bring hand crafted product to the customer (where they can see it in person before buying; and don't have to pay for shipping........or wait for it to be made).......so I can see why it's disheartening when this scenario takes place........having gone through it too. It is also partly why some companies do not last too long or fade away........aside from getting burned out or suffering from health issues. Just my two cents here.
