Well, thank you, Phil. I do appreciate the compliment, Especially since I now know that it is one. Imitation IS the greatest form of flattery. The green pieces of paper with pictures of dead presidents tell me that quite often. LOL Got a email from Ron Lambert of Rhode Island. He will be sending me his mastered parts of a 69 Olds Vista Cruiser tomorrow. Upon receipt of this project I will take it to Mike Schnur to have him give it a look. Mike knows a good deal about real cars and building real custom cars too. Rocky is very good at it too.
I'm not very smart about computers and programs. It looks like you can upload a photo here and it will convert it into a domino pattern. I found Robert Bosch and this program doing a search. You should have fun with this, John. A photo of a race car or your girlfriend/wife just might be possible. It is important for you to know that dominoes don't come in a standard size. Be careful when making a purchase sight unseen.
Of course Scale Reproductions is the superior product. Their original kit supplied a photo etch set and nice white metal parts and tires and decals, etc, etc. Well worth what I paid. I only do a handful of parts and you are only the second person in probably 8 years or so to point that out. Nobody has ever told me not to do it. I figure I offer enough parts to make it real pain in the ass to build it as it should be built. For me, I would think the grille would be the biggest problem to create. I do stand guilty as charged! But it doesn't keep people from all over the world seeking to acquire one. They have gone to Germany, Italy, Sweden, Spain, Canada, South Korea, Australia and other countries I can't name now. Yes, It's a great seller. A Holy Grail indeed. I am also guilty of stealing from AMT, MPC and other original companies just like Modelhaus started doing many years ago. Art Anderson was another guy besides Bob and Polly Zetterman who helped Don and carol get started in the casting business. I'm sure I will look good in orange. JUST THE FACTS MAAM!
Yes, We still make a few parts. We just about have all the molds made to create the Convertible version that Raoul C. created for a what if build. This kit has the two door panels, two piece back seat, a roll bar, two sun visors, four wheels, four wheel trim rings, a gas cap, a hood, and some headlights. Works with AMT ERTL kit 6633. This kit is getting a bit hard to find though. The body I am making is very nice. Rocky was pleased that it was about a five minute cleanup. The flash is quite thin and pops out quickly and cleanly.
Kris thinks it is worth the effort and I do too. One of the modelers here in my Area is Raoul, his name on this board is sport suburban. He has a early 70's Sport suburban. It's big and looks really cool. That would be a great Station wagon to do too.

http://resinmodelcasting.proboards.com/thread/43/dodge-crewcab-master?page=1&scrollTo=223 Hi all, I have poor luck posting photos on this board. The file is most always too large. You can follow this link over to a cab I am in process of creating a mold for. Rocky was able to get a master cab that was made by Tom Coolidge. We do have his blessing to recreate these. Nothing in writing though. The cab was pretty rough. And Rocky used a chain saw, a big file, a really big hammer to adjust it. He then fine tuned it with some sanding and paint to get to the point of what you see here. Rocky and I invite you to come over and register to win resin stuff. Maybe give away a couple times a month, maybe more often. Rocky has big visions for our venture. I would like it to be a full time job however I do work a 40 hour week. !0 hour days is just too much for me.
