Nice model of one Jim Hall most abysmal can am cars...partially caused by Surtees himself, as he did not want to drive the machine as originally designed...with Surtees sitting in the enclosed car only viewing through the perspex windows. They eventually abandoned the car for a McLaren during the season.
I used to charge $100 a mold regardless of size(up to a 1/24 scale body). I kept the mold. Parts produced from the mold were sold to customer at an agreed upon price, usually based on resin used. I factored my time into the part cost. Typical car body was about $20. A mold without intricate cut ins usually lasted about 40-50 castings before it startede to 'chunk' out. Find out if you get the mold and make sure the caster is ethical and won't sell your product underneath you.
I can appreciate all of them but none of them really have that 'gotcha' factor for me. Maybe Aftershock comes close but even it seems like a plagiarized Figoni et Falaschi bodied Talbot Lago or Bugatti. Don't get me wrong I'd put any one of them in my garage but none of them really bowl me over. Does anyone know if AMBR has to be an 'American made car'? Hmmmmm.
I just have to chime in because I find it 'odd' the suggestions to buy a new kit to restore an old kit that is the same as the new kit. Then he will be left with a new kit that needs the same parts...this perplexes me.
