I just sent pictures off to Manny and I'll let you guys know as soon as we work that out.

I think we're far enough along now to reveal the caster who will be handling this. Manny at VCG has given me an early quote of $15. Given the quality of his work, the layout of some of the pieces and the freedom to no longer have to raid a minimum of 3 kits to pull this off I believe that it is a fair price. It certainly is in line with his other engine kits of similar complexity.

Yeah, that's not bad at all. When will they be ready? I have a current project begging for one.

I'm planning to get the master out this weekend. Then it's just a matter of how quickly he can get the molds made up.

Absolutely interested . . . in several.   I've gotten a few mills from VCG before and they're excellent quality.

The master for the crate motor is cleaned up and ready to go. I just received an extra set of engine halves so that I can remake the master for the stand alone T-56 six-speed. Everything will be sent off to VCG in the next couple of days.

Would you ship outside the USA?
And would I order directly from you or through VCG Resins?

Ordering will be through VCG. I just created this thread to show him that the market was here to make it more likely that I could get a top-notch caster to take on the project. I do get a discount on my first order for creating the master but otherwise there is no financial gain for myself. My main goal was to get this out in the wild as I believed it would be a bonus to the modeling community to have it readily available.

I don't know for sure VCG's international policies but if he won't send me a PM. I'll put a few extra on my order and get them to you.
