  1. im looking or hoping to find a resin model of a 1958/59 Chevrolet apache fleetside pick up with wrap a round or big rear window 1:24 scale thank you to all that responds back
  2. I developed this for my own use but was wondering if anyone else might be interested
  3. One (of many) reasons I got stalled on this VW Bus project, didn't like the idea of trying to get a decent paint job done around the giant molded on emblem. I had tried the Alumilte casting putty, but got unsatisfactory results, plus JB Weld doesn't work that well for parts. Since I needed to get fresh casting supplies, I added this to the task. First thing was making a dam around it, used yogurt cup foil because it's thicker than Reynolds, bends nicely, taped down with masking tape. I also filled the corners to prevent spill-out. Oh man, so much happier with this! P.S.: Started this project 2003, could participate in the Bring Out Your Dead challenge when I feel *really* ambitious.
  4. Lamborghini Cheetah

    A subject I would like to build, but come on, not a cartoon! They have some interesting subjects, too bad they are not realistic. If I'm going to spend precious time, it's gonna be accurate. Hobby Search is the source.
  5. This is a review for the eightyone suburu engine. I am currently building a vw karmann ghia with one of these engines so thought some of you might find this useful. The engine comes in approx 20 parts and only a couple of parts required a very minor amount of cleaning/trimming. A couple of parts were a little fiddly to get in place but that is down to my finger size most likely. It went together pretty easy otherwise and I can happily reccomend it for vw builds. I haven't pictured the belts but they are equally as nice as the rest of the engine. Mine came in grey resin with no bubbles anywhere.
  6. Hi everyone, Here's a 1960 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz Convertible. This beautiful resin kit was created by Shawn Carpenter, based and converted from the Monogram-Revell 59 Eldorado. I built it at least 10 years ago. This is an extremely rare kit and at the time of purchase, it was already hard to find. Although she's presentable, that Cadillac will receive a complete restauration, as my skills were so-so back then. Need a new paint, clear coat, cleaned windshield and new bare metal trims. I don't have any further informations on Shawn Carpenter nor its creations so if anyone of you have some, please feel free to share. Hope you'll like the pics. Cheers.
  7. Olson Bros. Resin

    Guys, Chris is back to normal health again and has more Bronco parts listed. I'll get the website updated soon, but the eBay store is stocked again. https://www.ebay.com/str/olsonbrothers [Edit to add] The website is back up, we're still working on a new design with a shopping cart but it's www.resincastmodelparts.com for anyone that's interested.
  8. Conversion of a conversion, the Canopy Express is a rare vehicle to begin with. I started this April 1995. *Edit* I made it a 1948, simple to remove the door vent windows. For starters, anyone building the '50 Chevy pickup needs to know, the driveshaft should be assembled the other direction, the end at the differential is fixed, the instructions are incorrect. The other thing I've done so far, is correct the running boards, by shaving down the perimeter so the ribs stand proud, not recessed lines, that's a pet peeve of mine with this kit. Another pet peeve, is the firewall should be flush with the front of the cab, not recessed back, but that requires reworking the recess for the engine, so I have corrected that. Yet another pet peeve, is flat headlight reflectors, that has been corrected. Can't forget the door handles, they were shaved off, will make new ones, that will sag like the real thing. LOL The reason I put this away for so long, the interior needs a total scratch-build. The resin floor with wheel wells is completely incorrect. I am planning to not keep the wood floor boards, but make it like they put in diamond plate or a newer ribbed truck bed (will be last minute decision). I have turned the wheel well form, from Corian using the drill press. I'm now at the cardboard mockup stage, which will become part of the plastic form to vacuum-form the interior panels. I have the tailgate done, used eye glasses hinges, and interior panel is done. I'm now working on the driver seat, which I had previously cut down from the bench seat, but was incorrect. I am also making a new gas tank, based on the drawing in the repair manual that I kept from owning the real '48 5 window. Next steps are: bed sides with "rolled" edge, center taillight and also the other taillights, 4 on the floor gear shift, thinking about making a hood hinge with spring and latch, perhaps a roof rack that would be made of rebar, dings and dents with rust holes, will try some extreme weathering techniques. The final touch, what should the painting company name be (plan is to have spilled paint inside to use up paint)?
  9. Hi guys, here is another iconic custom car that I tried to rebuild in scale, John D´Agostinos Golden Starfire. Here the original car: And my scale version: It was built from a Jimmy Flintstone resin curbside kit of a ´61 Oldsmobile Super 88 with a few retouches and additional parts: All trim, emblems and handles were shaved. The hood was cut from the body and I inserted the engine bay of an AMT ´62 Chevy Bel Air along with the front part of the frame/chassis and the engine. The Bel Air also donored its window glass. The suspension was lowered and I used wire wheels from my spare parts with custom hubcaps and AMT parts pack´s wide whites. The ´60 Mercury grille with the Lucas headlights came from AMT´s ´59 El Camino kit. The interior tub and seats are ´63 Impala parts and I scratch built a center console and tuck´n´roll upholstery, he steering wheel is a Modelhaus item. A scratch built trim bar was placed between ThePartsBox custom bullet taillights. Thanks for looking, hope you like it.
  10. Original molds

    Here’s my question..I understand injection molding and casting, what I would like to know is where do I go to get the original molds, not to make my own from an existing object?

  13. 1971 Buick Skylark GS

    Converted Monogram's '70 Buick GS hardtop to a '71 GS convertible (see on the workbench)
  14. Did not see that anyone has shown this particular Audi Quattro kit, which is a low volume resin kit made in France. It represents the pinnacle of the Group B rally cars, infamously called Killer B due to extreme performance mixed with stupid spectators standing on the edge of the roads. I'm planning to build Walter Roehrl's car, with appropriate "weathering". This model has the engine, some other kits do not. I am going to use the Facebook embed method, since I've noticed old posts using photo hosting sites are now useless, and I don't want to use up my allotted space on this forum. I have basic descriptions on each of my photos. (if this does not work, please let me know)
  15. Just received a couple of awesome Chevy’s from Steve at reasonable price points. Look to get more in the future, great service, great communication, great product.
  16. Thanks to Landman and the miracle of eBay, I now have the key elements of a '40 Ford woody. I will be finishing up the Duesenberg TROG project first but this one will be next in line. I look forward to seeing what I can make out of this combination.
  17. Olson Brothers Resin

    Hey guys, Olson Brothers is at it again with a new, handmade soft-top for the Revell Bronco that will fit either the original version or the new Baja Bronco kit that's coming out. There are also new side rails and much more available on our "favorite" site.
  18. Hi everyone, I was trying to find a topic on here about casting your own backing plates but could not find anything about it. I have a set of scale 40 Ford backing plates and was wondering if and how I could make an "unlimited" amount of them for my own personal projects by casting them in resin.. if that is the right term? If anyone has any tips on how to mold my own brakes that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Austin

  21. Fender skirts are available now for the Foose Cadillac! These are handmade and fit perfectly to the body, however the kit tires and wheels are too wide to use once these are installed. If you're using the normal tall & skinny whitewalls they will fit fine as [url=https://www.ebay.com/itm/Olson-Brothers-Resin-Fender-Skirts-for-Revell-1-25-Foose-Custom-Cadillac-NEW-/253284647786]shown here[/url].
  22. Let me know your opinions about this Ford cab and notify me if you are interested.
  23. I'm building a kit bash camaro. I am wondering if anyone makes resin car seats. Does anyone make camaro seats? Is there a site I can go to and find custom interior for models? Worst case if anything let me know what kind of model kit to search out for these parts. I'm trying to find these exact seats/interior for my build. I believe these are from a 73 camaro.
  24. Has anyone had trouble with Alumilite clear resin not curing completely? I'm very careful to get an exact 50/50 mix; parts often come out soft and sticky. Is Part B the catalyst, and if so should I use a bit more? What's been your experience with it? Thanks as always for your help! P.S. Room temp is mid-70s, humidity 35-40% if that helps.
  25. Ok guy's I really need these tail light lenses ,I'm going to cast the body ,hood ,bumpers . so if anyone can help with the tail light lenses you will get them back in good shape .
