  1. If you were to punch my name or the business name into a Google or Bing search you'd find my contact info all over the place! LOL! It's at the top of my Fotki albums, should be in my business card logo signature at the bottom of many of my posts in certain forums; and more recently through the business page on Facebook. Shoot me a line if there's anything I can help you out with! Ed lowcab36@epix.net
  2. Vince got these from me; but I no longer offer the W-30 Olds hood. It was one I had laying around from years ago that I gave him.
  3. No problem on the info! Keep in mind (in case you didn't catch what was said earlier) Dave is no longer casting or running the resin business..........Mike from Wings, Wheels, and Waves out of Massillon, Ohio has taken over the resin business from Dave. I no longer have a web site; but you can see what I have to offer or what I am up to by going to my business page on Facebook. You can also send me a pm for the link to my Fotki albums where you can see more photos of my work.
  4. I ordered a '57 Nomad from Mike not too long ago rather than mastering one myself to build; and he was very prompt with my order. The quality of his castings are very high............I was very pleased; considering the amount of time he has actually been casting (something like 10 weeks he said). I have been doing this for over 15 years; and probably scrutinize over the quality of castings more than the average modeler. The only issue I had was something that was not really his fault; and that was due to how Dave made the body mold; which reflected in the castings as the mold got older. Basically, the body 'grew' in length front and rear by 1/16" overall due to the mold being made too thin and flexing from the hydraulic pressure of the resin as the mold became weaker over time. This altered the outside dimensions of the body. As soon as I test fit the donor kit hood I knew what had happened........having had this happen myself in the past; which prompted me to change how I design my molds. Since explaining to Mike what caused this over the phone he said he'd be willing to replace the body as soon as he makes a new mold. If his mold making abilities match up to his casting efforts you will all be in good hands when ordering from him!
  5. Where did you get the wheels for the Moray and Manta Ray builds? It looks like you cast your own copies. I take it you started with the basic wheel and perhaps modified it to make a deeper version? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  6. Sure thing Kevin! I can't wait to get your little 'gems' in my hand! Coupled with Joseph's carbs they're going to dress up any Wedge or Hemi engine like a girl on her prom night! LOL!
  7. Simply awesome parts there Kevin! I should really get some off of you for a couple of my personal projects.
  8. I used to offer these particular hoods that you mentioned; but am testing the waters by bringing back this 'batch' of hoods first; which were some of my better sellers over the past 15 years. If sales don't amount to much there's no sense in grabbing more from my pile of hood masters to bring back on-line. I have around 30 other hoods that I would entertain molding again; while many others are not coming back for various reasons.
  9. This is one of our latest custom tuck’n roll interior conversions. It is designed for the AMT 1953 Ford F-100 pickup kit; and may very well work with the former MPC (now AMT) tilt nose ’53 Ford pickup kits as well. It consists of a reworked bench seat with pleated pattern and piping along the perimeter, two 100% scratch built pleated door panels, separate door handles, window cranks, and arm rests that can be pinned to the door panels for ease of assembly and painting, and an optional template should the builder decide to make a simple filler piece out of sheet stock to hide the back side of the firewall area on the inside of the cab. As usual, feel free to drop me a line at lowcab36@epix.net with your questions or to place an order. Thanks! Ed..........Drag City Casting.
  10. The louvered conversion package for the AMT '36 Ford 3 window coupe (or convertible kit) is finally available to order again! You can send me pm or e-mail (lowcab36@epix.net)......or check out our Facebook page (Drag City Casting).
  11. These hoods are now back on-line after being unavailable for many years! All fit AMT kits: '49 Ford teardrop hood '55 Chevy L88 hood '55 Chevy teardrop hood '56 Ford teardrop hood '57 Ford teardrop hood '62 Bel Air teardrop hood '63-'64 Ford Galaxie teardrop hood Send me a pm (or e-mail) to get your order in now while the molds are fresh! Keep in mind there is only one mold for each hood. If sales demand a second mold be made in the near future I will take the time to do so; but please be patient with me in the meantime. If everything goes well as far as sales I will start bringing back some more of my old hoods. I have around 30 of my old masters set aside that I could see bringing back; while some of the others weren't great sellers, were made for obscure out of production kits, or the masters are in poor shape due to age and storage (body filler shrinking or cracking, etc.)
  12. I am now down to the last 8 '37 Chevy coupe bodies in stock. If you are interested in getting one of these don't hesitate! I've molded this body 3 times over the years; and sales dictate that a 4th time is not prudent. This body uses the AMT '37 Chevy coupe (stock roof) kit or the AMT '37 Chevy Cabriolet as a donor. Just swap the bodies out; and you are good to go! My chopped coupe resin body sells for $30.00 plus shipping. Send me a pm or e-mail me direct (even better) at lowcab36@epix.net. Thanks! Ed Here are some fine examples of what others have built (or started building) with this body!
  13. I am sorry to disappoint, but I do not sell that hood. These fine models were built by John Goschke . I do plan on offering a louvered hood for the AMT '40 Fords hopefully soon; but have been stretched a bit thin lately as far as time to work on new masters myself.
  14. Here are a few other recent additions to my catalog if anyone is actually reading this thread?! These are molded from original issue parts that have not been available in the AMT '40 Ford coupe and sedan kits since the original issues. The hoods ('40 and '39) are technically from the sedan kit. The only difference between the '40 Deluxe coupe hood and the '40 Deluxe sedan hood was the center hood trim on the front. It is slightly different; but very tough to spot; especially if you don't have one of each to compare. These were molded since almost all of the reissues (starting with the earliest reissues) had fitment issues; and the side trim has gradually disappeared........something still not fixed on the latest retro box art reissues.
