[I been wanting to build a top fuel hydro ever since you guys had that hydro contest in Arizona many years ago. And now the question Can you help me find one to purchase. Presently emailing to some guy named Jim Richardson who might have a distance connection to a Top Fuel Hydro. Sorry for the delay I been working long hours all week long so I only check in once a week if that....
PS... Right when I ask low and behold Don Thune of Reliable Resin posted a 1/25 scale drag boat
Tim I still need you too help me if you can regardless if Don boat comes thru...
Sorry 'bout the delay in getting back to you. Since Tuesday, I've been up on the mountain scouting for elk with my neighbor. He has an elk tag this year and I promised to show him some places I know.
Anywhoo, to answer your questions, I don't recall ever mentioning that I had 2 more boats out there, as this is the only one I have built at the present. I'd like to do a few more, eventually, but none in the pipeline right now.
As for Jim Richards; it is his hull that I built. Him and Jay Moody WERE partners in a business called Cast Masters. They are no longer together and I don't know how much, if any, of there stuff is out there. If I were you, I'd contact Chuck Miers at Altered States and see if he still is producing them. I promise, you won't regret his quality. He is the BEST by far and I HIGHLY recommend him over ANYBODY!! If it doesn't work out with Chuck, let me know! I know there are some of his boat hulls in Albuquerque, NM but I don't know if they are available. IF they are, be prepared to drop some serious coin. (I suspect, but don't know that for a fact.) Again, it will be WORTH it to get Chuck's castings over anyone else yopu would care to deal with!!!!
Hope this helps and I'm not too late!
