Model Car World Resin

Recommended Posts

I ordered some MCW bodies on November 27, not really expecting to see them until sometime after the first of the year, and they arrived TODAY, December 15! That is IME OUTSTANDING service from a resin supplier. :D

One of the things I got was his '65 Olds 4-4-2 kit. Have only had a quick look at it but it looks VERY nice--looks very buildable, unlike the one I bought from Resin Realm a few years back. Hope to get pics of it up soon. Now I think I can build all the Olds A-bodies from 1964 to 1972. Very cool! B)

Dave was also very easy to work with and good with communications. By contrast, at the same time I started talking to him about this, I also sent an email to Bandit Resin which so far has not been answered. Their website is up and they seem to be in business--does anyone know if they actually are?

What was your shipping charge? I was going to pull the trigger on a Mopar; but, 18 bucks for a small kit is way too much.

Re Bandit Resin, same here. There are a number of AM guys who don't bother responding. Guess they're not interested in actually running a business. Dirt Modeler is another. Seven email inquiries and no response.

Yah, shipping was a pretty steep bite, but overall, I thought it was worth it, considering his prices, which aren't that bad compared to today's MSRP on even common kits. 

IF what I ordered had been available on eBay as restorable glue bombs of the relative rarity/desirability of, say, an AMT '66 Skylark or almost anything JoHan (which they're not), I'd have almost certainly spent AT LEAST what the MCW order cost me, shipping included. So IMHO I thought I got fair value for my hobby dollars. 

He makes a stock '64 Chevelle HT, but not a '65. If he'd offered a resin repop of the AMT Craftsman '65 Chevelle, I'd have ordered one of those, too.

Dave has always been great to deal with.  When I was at FM, I needed some Impala bench seats. I explained my need and had them sent! Fair 

price and quick ship.

Bandit Resin had a notice he will be closed up until after the New Year . I found the notice in June as I was researching his products to plan my 2019 Purchases . So will MCW be on the list :)  Thanx ..

Kenny has been injured and not able to get stuff done. He has great stuff, just have to be patient.

 

MCW Resin is really nice, I have a couple of pieces to finish. Not having the paint side of his business has helped Dave with getting stuff shipped much more quickly.

I have to say I really like MCW over the years I have got a good 30 of his kits I like them and he is fast on shipping for resin and the quality is very good the shipping is a bit high but the product makes up for it. The only thing I do not like he still does all his orders by snail mail other then that he's got a great line up.

I ordered some resin bodies from him and had a positive experience.  He stands behind his products.  I would definitely order from him again.

Ordered the 64 and 65 442 from them, they arrived 2 weeks later. Well worth the money, nice clean casting without any warpage.

Dave Dodge at MCW has always been great to work with and has some really nice resin pieces. I used to deal with him personally at the Toledo shows a number of years back when he was still selling paints. I have some nice Mopar kits that I bought from him and it sure would be nice if I finished one. LOL! I have one that's I started a couple years ago but have a few other kits that I'm currently workin' on.

Todd,

Would you be able to post pictures of the kit - especially the bodies?  Thanks.

 Will try tonight, I know it's been talked about times before, but I still need to work on my picture posting abilities!

I agree with the steep shipping costs....$56 bucks is a little high for a body.JMO

Question; Is there a website for MCW Resins?

That site you are referring to is for the paints/finishes only. Totally separate from the resin stuff. MCW Automotive Finishes was purchased by the owner of Wings Wheels and Waves, in Massilon, Ohio. It's stated on the MCW site:

Wings Wheels and Waves is now the proud owner of MCW Auto Finishes. Same great products and the same great service.

Check the order form. It clearly indicates NO RESIN. One still needs to go to the link I provided to order resin kits and such.

I’m confused, do you buy resin from the old site or new site?

I was chatting to Michael Guest last night, he's a good friend of mine, I asked him to shed some light on this, yes he does own MCW Lacquer, and from this weekend he owns the resin side of the business as well, so use the link to the newer website, which is still being worked on.
