    I purchased a MOD SQUAD kit that was opened and sealed bag for $255.00.  I have purchased several out of print original kits for well over a hundred bucks.  I purchased an original and only issue of the AMT 67 Camaro Pace Car kits for 350.00.  I sent it to my brother who built it as a kid.  He sent it back and I sold it for 380.  I still have one kit for casting purposes.  I need to make a new body mold.  I just completed a new mold for a AMT 63 Bonneville HT 2 dr. body.  I posted photos on our local board of the process.  Probably the best mold I have made yet.   How's that for advertising?

    I actually make those.  I will post a photo later when I get home from work.  Yes, they are tiny but doable in resin.  Just don't ask me to do wire wheels.

    I got my receipt from Paypal with a link to download the magazine.  I get some kind of 404 error and it says the page cannot be found.  Perhaps I have a ID10T  error and I just don't know what I am doing.  My computer is not a very good one either.

    HMMMM.  I purchased one as well thinking I would just go to my start menu and click on downloads and all would be good.  I'm not very computer literate either.  My wife has a degree in computers.  She also just recently earned a PHD in education.  Hopefully my Doctor wife can figure it out.

    I have a T. H. E. Cat kit.  I also have a SUPERTEEN Firebird kit.  I just can't seem to post photos here anymore.

    I could only wonder how long it takes for them to go through 110 gallons of resin?

    When I spoke to Don he mentioned buying drum sets of resin.  I only wish I had asked how big are the drums and how often do you purchase them.  A drum containing part A and a drum containing part B.  I am still only buying gallon kits.  That makes two gallons of resin.  It will make lots of parts.  A gallon kit is about a hundred bucks.  There is a good profit margin.  Now if I just had a bigger room to work in and more help and more initiative on my part.

    Sadly they will be missed.  I understand the tires will still be made by their son.  Uncertain how that will go.

    Hi All,
      Just talked to a buddy.  He said Carol told him if he wanted anything he had better place an order.  If you are able to place an order you probably won't get it until the middle of 2017.  Don just sent some 4000 parts out to get plated.  They might be shutting their site down for good soon.  The demand for their parts is quite evident.

    WOW!  They are all pretty nice looking.

    I would not try a dremel either.  I don't like fast moving tools.  The tiniest little slip even in that scale will be a disaster to the detail.  Ask Joseph before you drive yourself crazy with this part of your build.  Your builds deserve good parts.

    Perhaps Chief Joseph could 3D print some for you.  His items have very nice detail.  Ask and you shall receive.

    Very nice.  Does the 300 room and the Blue Bird Cafe still exist?  I met an old gentleman here who told me he used to sell newspapers on the street with Dick Van Dyke.
