    Polyurethane is what resin model parts are made from.  
  2. jas1957 added a post in a topic How can I convince them we need a hobby shop here?   

    Good luck, I live in an urban/suburban county of 1.2 million people. There is exactly one hobby shop in this county & it is on life support. To my knowlage there are three other shops within 50 miles of my home.  One of those looks like it will be closing soon.  Between less & less people being involved in hobbies & internet sellers it is a VERY tough business to be in.  20 years ago I had six shops within 10 miles of me, didn't appreciate how good I had it.

  7. jas1957 added a post in a topic 1/25 Paxton Turbine Indy source?   

    I have two of the MPC 1/20 kits but my scale bigotry still wants a 1/25 one.  Every time I pull the Jorgenson kit out I get depressed.  It is such a big challenge.
  8. jas1957 added a post in a topic 1/25 Paxton Turbine Indy source?   

    There was a resin kit done by Bill Jorgenson some years ago.  He used to sell regularly on eBay, have not seen him there in years.  The kit is decent looking but as with all Joergenson kits take some doing to get a finished model. I have been playing around with mine on & off for years.

    Great pictures Tim, thanks for posting them. Also thanks much for the kind words.

    I believe Model Car World makes a '62 Ford kit he might sell just the bumpers.

  13. jas1957 added a post in a topic 53 Corvette hardtop?   

    He may have been talking about or seen the Corvair show car from 1952 ?  It was basically a Corvette with a fastback hard roof.  Someone many years ago did a resin kit, do not remember who.
  14. jas1957 added a post in a topic TRULY RAREST OF THE RARE 1/25 MUSCLE CAR KITS OF ALL TIME   

    I would also have to vote for the AMT 1969 El Camino Soapbox Derby kit. The ONLY one I have ever seen is the one I bought in 1970.  Just about every other kit mentioned I have at least seen at one time or another but the El Camino, nada.
