In Topic: SC Miller Resin?

19 June 2015 - 04:19 AM

SC Miller was one of if not the first to do home casting of model cars. I believe he used polyester resin instead of the now common polyurethane resin. As was said above his stuff was all one piece mold slush cast. He did a lot of interesting subjects. He died a number of years ago. Even if not to build his models were an interesting part of model car history.

I take it you've had a LOT of experience with MCW resin kits?


I have built a couple of his kits, he does not chrome the bumpers & grills. You will have to use Al Clad or send them out to one of the chrome plating companies. It is not perfect but if you want a Lark it is the only game in town. As any kit plastic or resin with a little time & effort a nice model can be built.

And what did you think of the Lark kit? Was it a good, clean resin copy?


Like all MCW resin kits it is very nice clean casting that will build a good looking model.

I have built the MCW Studebaker Lark. It is based on the old Jo Han promo. It is a bit larger than 1/25 scale, maybe 1/22 or so. I opened the hood & made a full detail model out of it. Modified a '41 Plymouth flat six the replicate the Stude flat six.

Many of the MPC Fox Mustangs have turbo fours. MPC 1932 Chevy Roadster has a straight 6.
