  1. I just wanted to let everyone know that I (Rookie Resin) am temporarily having issues with PayPal on the website. It seems that nobody can place orders using them as a payment method at this time. I hope to have the issue resolved soon. Thank you for your patience while I sort this out. Bill
  2. Hi Greg, What era of the Mobius kits are you wondering about? As a few have pointed out, Kris makes some for the 65-66 kits. I started making some for the 67-72 but haven't done the hood side badges. I made a tailgate insert and the Mercury letters for the hood and that's about as far as I got.
  3. Hi Chris, I think I can get around to doing the emblems if your willing to help a little. Could you provide some dimensions and reference pictures? It would make things a lot easier for me and speed up the process of getting them done as that research is very time consuming. Let me know what you think? Bill
  4. Hi Tom, that Dodge looks fantastic! Those tires and color scheme really makes it look great! I did model those wheels ( Ford 19.5) and printed a few sets. I haven't made them available as of yet because I am unsure of the width to make them. I have been swamped with my job and family so modeling new stuff lately has been on hold and the focus has been just keeping up on orders.
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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)
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Excellent pair of old Dodges Tom! Love the van and what it stands for!
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. 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!
  14. 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!
  15. Thanks Tom! Wonderful work on this one! BTW, those mirrors were designed for the 4th Gen Ford cabs (Moebius 65 -66) which is why the fit is a little "off" for the 67-72 kits.
  16. Thanks AJ, I forgot all about the roof change from the smooth top in 61- 63 cabs to dip in the 64 - 66 . Hopefully it shouldn't be much of a hassle for the builder to fill in that dip on the Moebius 65-66 cabs to get the right look for the 61-63.
  17. Excellent work Jim! You nailed the used slightly weathered look! Love the engine bay! Very well done all around! It will be an honor to post this build on Rookie Resin's website in the upcoming customer gallery, thank you for your support!
  18. Very cool! Weathering technique is fantastic! Love the seat! Excellent work!
  19. Excellent work Tom!, right down to broom! This brings back memories of when I was in the towing business and spent many hours sweeping debris ( and other things) off the highway after securing the vehicle. Nice details and you nailed the look of that "clean" wrecker that dealerships had around their service centers.
