    Hi Buzz,

    Yes, definately. I'll send you a PM.

    Cheers,

    Rob

    My Futurliner (elsewhere on this forum) was a complete new master which shows what I'm able to do.

    If someone makes a master of one of these for me, I'll mold and cast it (if it's of good quality). Otherwise I don't feel like investing my time and cash in this if there's no interest

    Easier said than done. You probably don't realize it costs about $1000 to make a master, molds, and castings. Sorry, I don't feel like gambling on a grand. I can do another subject just as easily and sell more.

    And I never asked for a penny. I just asked for people who would buy one. I've done sci fi products that I get about 25-50 committments to buy when completed. I figured for about 10-15 flake outs. I make up for that with ebay sales. In this case, there wasn't even 10 or a single email asking what the reeal price was

    Canceled due to lack of interest

    Canceled due to lack of interest in both items. Thank you for posting

    So it will be a little less than the average of $50-$100

    I second that. I'll pass that along

    But would you actually buy one? Would anyone? I'm a Dakota owner myself, but I doubt a whole lot of people would pay for a full resin kit.

    I can't post prices (moderators seem to edit every time I put a price in). Think average Modelhaus kit cost. If you want to know for sure, please email me.

    Actually, no.

    I'm talking with some friends at the manufacturer to suggest which products might make good reissues as parts packs.

    I don't know, I haven't had any interest in it yet. Thanks Rodney
    Thank you Bill! Yes, these will be printed, then molded, and cast.

    What AMT Ertl big rig parts would you like to see reissued as parts packs?
    Hello All,

    If you can pull parts from AMT Ertl semi truck kits and trailers and release them in individual parts packs, what would they be? Engines, wheels, tires, accessories?

    Please be specific (like type of engine from this or that kit), and only from AMT Ertl kits. All ideas welcome.

    Thanks - Rob

    Yes, full kit required. The 1981 to 93 panels were all interchangeble, so you could put a 93 grille on the old body, but it'll just look like a 70s with a newer grille. The 81+ had new front doors, front fenders, bed, tailgate. The single cab was flatter above the rear window. The crew cab, rear crew cab doors, and extended cab were the same as the 1972 to 1980. The hood and cowl was the same as the 1980 (last issue with the square stacked headlights).

    Both. Looking for things that other people might want. Thanks Roger

    Anyone have any truck masters that I can mold?
    Hello,

    If anyone here is working on something that can be a basis for a master pattern, I might be interested in molding it.

    It doesn't need to sell very many, just pay for itself (materials and time) in the long term. I can mold pretty fast, even faster if there are a few people who already want a resin copy. The master can't be a resin or based on a resin body.

    We can work out the compensation. If interested, please email me: robert burns jr101 at yahoo.com

    Thanks - Rob
