Here's a slight update on Paul. Kev 'n I went to see him on the 4th. He was doing well, if not just kinda abetired. He was getting out today, and was goin home, I think. I live about 4 cities away, so 'm not real sure where the guys actually live only that they're fairly close to the shop. Kev'n I both live 20/25 mims. away. The old boy was lookin good, just like I said, tired. BUT his sense of humor he has is still there, and that's always good. Paul IS kinda a quiet guy anyways just stays in his office un less he's in the shop casting. He does ALL the artwork for DRAG, so if ya got an item without a printed label, THAT'S probably why. Havent'nt been here in a while, been busy with the clowns over at DRAG, and it's been fun! Just lucky to be at the right place, at the right time! Paul is doin better, he's probably there as I write this! We hard working (hurmph ruff cough....)members of DRAG are just human tryin our best to give you guys the stuff you want/need ta build the wonders that you do,and We (I) enjoy doin for yous! As I said, Paul IS STILL out of commission, and I can't honestly say ANYTHING as to wats goin on with SMBC other than to add Paul's doin better and is BACK HOME, now He'll probably call for a meeting with the guys and get caught up. If I'm privey to that , If I can, I'll keep you guys UTD. BUT NEVER FEAR smbc is STILL ALIVE, AND WE'S TRYIN LIKE MAD DOGS TRYIN TO GET YOUR STUFF OUT TO YAZ, honestly we are. Opps cap lok got jammed.....
YES, I have one. Its VERY WELL cast and its pretty near a complete kit! You add an engine, tires and color! Itsa nice kit, represents its style very well and there's only ONE place ta get one! Missing Link!!!!
After 50 years of doin this, its ONLY PLASTIC! If your starting out, it can be a problem to get it right, but if ya stay with it, you'll improve. If you DON'T, let it go, modeling ISN'T for EVERYBODY! That's why they have die cast. If you ENJOY workin with plastic, stick with it, you'll get better, I PROMISE! Just do YOUR thing, don't worry bout the other guy and ENJOY yourself. Itsa HOBBY, NOT a calling!
Do ANY of you guys REALLY cast? I use talcum powder an most of my open faced molds AND 2 piece molds. I've NEVER had any problem with it, I use Smooth On 300 thru 305 and its NEVER left ANY impressions. I use a spray release on the OLDER more tired molds but I STILL powder them with NO problems. What resin /Mold making products are you using? Been workin with Smooth On for over 5 months now with NO problems at all.
