Update to my previous post- Got an email from Danny telling me my order shipped today ! Hard to believe that in about a week's time I will go from placing an order to having it on my doorstep! To be fair, what I ordered he had in stock but I ordered about 14 different items in various quantities and I cannot be more impressed with his turnaround time. Like I said, don't hesitate to order, the service and quality of the product is superior.
I have had great success with two other resin places and highly recommend them: 1. Scenes Unlimited- Danny has the nicest stuff and great service. Wheels and Tires for most any vehicle you can think of. 2. Fireball Modelworks- Joseph has incredible stuff and you won't be disappointed. Great service as well! MAD has a lot of neat stuff, Kris is another resin caster with great product and service.
I have seen a vendor at a couple of shows here in the Southeast that does something similar- Xtreme Scale Detail. They carry a lot of detail items and might have what you are looking for. www.xtremescaledetail.com
If you haven't signed up for an Ollie's card, do it next time you are there. I got a post card in the mail today that gives me an extra 15% off my next purchase, imagine another discount on top of an already great price!
Amy, There is a big model car swap meet in Wheaton at the county fairgrounds, usually in September. This would be a great place to sell off some of your Dad's stuff and a great way to see it going to a good home. Not sure of the dates but I am sure someone here can supply the date, it is usually on a Saturday/
Eric, I have an old version of the Pacer with the custom panels to make it a delivery vehicle from the '70's. It is missing the engine but everything else is there. Shoot me a PM with your address and I will get it out to you.
I know I have a Pacer kit to trade, would swap you for the Chevelle. Let me check the completeness of the Pacer kit, might be missing engine/trans, let me know if that is a dealbreaker, might have a spare Pacer kit sealed.
Just wanted to give another shout out to Danny. I had been waiting for him to get a couple of items back into inventory and he let me know that he has them available via a PM and I sent him an order last night. 30 minutes later I have an email with an invoice and I have no doubt the order will be here before I know it! Another great caster who is serious about his customers and taking care of them. If you are wondering about ordering from Scenes Unlimited, don't hesitate to do so, you will be glad you did!
I sent an email to Chris Olson regarding his resin products and he responded very quickly yesterday. A couple of emails later I had placed my order and he was prompt with a PayPal invoice and said to expect my order within a week or so. Order was based on this thread and others comments about his quality, looking forward to getting his stuff and finishing up a couple of builds.
