  1. There are basically 2 types used in our world of modeling...DLP (digital light processing) and FDM (fused deposition modeling). FDM is old school with the object being built on a heated platform through an extruder using filament plastic. The DLP is the better in my opinion for modeling detailed objects such as your grill. DLP is where you use liquid resin and the machine dips a platform into the liquid and a LCD monitor projects a layer of which the UV light from the projection hardens the resin. I have used both over the course of about 12 years. They both have their merits but for what you are wanting, the DLP is the way to go. Here is an item from my business "Rookie Resin" that was created using the DLP type printer. You can see it has tremendous detail. Hope this helps! Bill
  2. Had a request that I was able to do rather quickly for those needing the spears and hood emblem for a 60 Ford F100. These are now on the website and available for purchase. Thank you everybody for the positive responses and emails relating to my products! Bill
  3. I just want to say thanks for the praise on my grills fella's ! Just throwing this out there for those that don't know and are wanting a few more options for a "67". I have door panels with arm rests and without for 67, I also made the hood badges for F100....will see about doing F250 and F350's soon. Bill (Rookie Resin)
  4. Yes....working on making new molds. I pulled them from the inventory because the molds shrunk and the bed sides were over a couple mm shorter than the masters. I don't do much casting and I admit, I have been procrastinating on getting those done. I will work on them this week. Bill
  5. Hello Everybody.....it has been a while! Life got busy! I am ready to release the 62, 63, and 64 Grill's for the Moebius 65-66 Ford Pickup model kits. I also did the panel above the grill which will be sold separately and the hood badges for F100, F250, and F350's also the spears for 62 as well. As A.J. and Jon pointed out earlier in this post, the roof on the Moebius kit is correct for 64 but will need reshaped for the 62-63 to be accurate. (Thanks for the info guys!) I will also be releasing, in the next day or so, Sport Custom emblems for the 67-72 Ford pickups for the fenders and bed. Another item that will be added will be Ford Ranger door panels for the 73-79 Ford pickups. Thank you everyone for your support! Items should show on the website within 24 hrs... for some reason it takes a while sometimes for items to show. Bill
  6. Excellent pair of old Dodges Tom! Love the van and what it stands for!
  7. Thank you Mike, it has been in the "under glass section" of this forum for a while now...might have to dig back a few pages to find it.
  8. Nope, I cancelled his order. He has purchased some other GMC stuff from me in the past so they will probably be re-casted as well. My 305 v6, wrap around bumper, 8ft boxsides, v6 badges, and 66 grill. He had the nerve to ask for a discount for buying in bulk!
  9. Thanks Brian, funny thing is, the sob just placed another order with me. His name is NELSON HICKMAN. As far as the hood goes, modelhaus had one but they are hard to find. I was always planning on taking an AMT 60 Chevy hood and modifying it to be a GMC but just haven't had the time to do so. I wouldn't buy a stamp from this guy!
  10. Another Recaster alert! Hickman6389 recast my GMC conversion parts and has them on the Bay for $40! Couldn't even do a decent job casting them which adds to the insult!
