    See? it ain nuthin but plastic! Your repair job came out PERFECT! As a suggestion, The chassis from the AMT 67 Mustang will fit under that body with just a little shortening and trimming. And it's a MUCH better detailed chassis than the stock Maverick chassis!

    Paul's family has chosen NOT to continue his business. The molds were thrown away, and currently there are NO plans to bring any of his items back to market. Which is a shame, because he had some REALLY nice items. God Bless you Paul, and may you rest in peace. Paul was the owner of SMBC.

    If that's how you dealt with Bob, it's good enough for me, Steve. Just send your parts when you're ready and I'll be more than happy to help you out! Thanks, George.

    Guys, thank you all for your interest in GT KustomKrome . I don't know if this is the proper place for this, so if the mods need to change it, please feel; free to do so.
      I'll give all yall a run down on prices and procedures.
          Prices are, Bumpers---4.00 each.
    Hubcaps and wheels---2.00 for set of 4
    Misc. small parts.---1.75 each
    Misc. Med parts---3.50 each
    Items LARGER than Bumpers, contact me for quotes.
    Chassis---15.00 each
    Standard kit tree---20.00
    Strip parts using your favorite stripper, Purple power, Easy Off, Bleach, whatever. Then wash them off with New Dawn dishwashing soap. Let airdry, and make sure they are as CLEAN and SMOOTH as you can get them. The plateing process is SO sensitive it can and will pick up FINGERPRINTS, so cleanliness is REALLY important.
     Then, just put 'em inna baggie an send them off to me. George Hernandez

    THANK YOU ALL for such nice reviews, I make me feel good to know you're happy with the results. I was blessed to get a fully operating business from Bob Dahl, and all I want to do is KEEP IT that way.

    Sure do. Thanks Shay. Thanks for asking Brett. Just send me the parts, and I'll mount 'em an send them back all pretty an done!
  9. george 53 added a post in a topic Kustom Khrome Changing Hands   

    Yes, Jim I do. Bob has established a GREAT business relationship with a quality plater who is the same company I use.
     
  10. george 53 added a post in a topic Kustom Khrome Changing Hands   

    Sure do, Shay! of course it'll be a different price than our regular priceing, but after speaking with the plater, he assured me that yes, it is possible! Thanks for asking!

    Thanks Tom, and EVERBODY else who said some very nice things about me. I've been a member here since 07 or so, and I was a pretty constant poster. Then I started casting for Paul Plum, of Scale Models by Chris, When he got sick.Once Paul came back to work after a few months, Kevin Lutz of Missing Link took me on.
     I started casting for him then and still do. Danny Iaconnelli was the next friend who asked me for some help, and so I started casting for Danny too.  Danny bought me my first casting pot so I could have My own pots to cast for him.
     Once he moved I acquired 2 more pots and started casting my butt off. Since then I've been pretty busy with that. Then Big Bob, (Bob IS a pretty big guy!) Asked me if I'd like to take over his chromeing business. We worked out a deal over a burger an Pepsi, and now I am the proprietor of GT KustomKrome. ALL things happen for a reason.
     Now, I ask all of you guys to give me a chance to do as good a job as Bob did! NOTHING has or will change as far as I'm concerned. Prices will stay the same (unless the plater raises his prices, which I do NOT see happening ANYTIME soon.)
     Anyways, my E-mail addy is, tihggh01@hotmail.com I don't have a website as of yet, but I'm working on it. If you need a pricelist or just questions in general, please write my E-Mail addy for best, fastest results. Again, I DO look forward to serveing you guys to the best of my abilities! Thanks! George Hernandez, Aka, George53

    Danny will and CAN fill orders in a week! That's one of his points of business. He tries to keep a supply at hand to ship, and even if he has to cast the item, he'll get it out to the customer ASAP! The guys just VERY good at what he does!
     
  13. george 53 added a post in a topic Scenes Unlimited   

    I owe Danny a debt of gratitude as HE got me started in the casting business by buying me my first casting pot! No better people can you meet than he and his wife Tanna, and that's the truth. I started by casting wheels, and tow bars and hitches for Danny. The guy is a GREAT person and I couldn't say enough good stuff about him! My only regret is that he moved out of Michigan to Wisconsin and I miss hangin out with him. His products an quality are TOP NOTCH and you couldn't buy from a nicer guy!

    Kerre, the first one you showed was THE one I'm lookin for! Unfortunately, it's no longer available. The second on(Extended version) would do too if it's 24th/25th scale but I couldn't find it in your library. Do you have anymore info on it?

    Kenworth T-2000.
    Posted this earlier, but can't find it now, so I don't know if it got answered or not. I'm lookin for a once cast resin or fiberglas kit of this truck. A guy in Wisconsin used to cast it, but he's out of business now. So you guys are my only hope. Does anyone have one, or know WHERE I might get one? Any and ALL help would be appericiated! TIA, George53.
