Thanks.

Thats the "infamous" Wendell Sowers of AFX N Scale Resin Co. Its best to STAY AWAY! Long history of poor business practices and the like. If you send them money, treat it more like a donation than a purchase, youll never get your items. Even through the legitamacy and cushyness of ebay, ill almost guarantee you will not recieve your item(s)

You can obviously do what you please, but there have been long discussions here and on "the other" board regarding these people.

Best of luck my modeling friend.

If i knew where else to get those caps i would steer you to them.

Blu, I was in Winston Salem North Carolina thjis past week-end I spoke to the owner of Time Macine resin on several subjects. Isaw som Cadillac wheel covers there that while they are " Full " covers It seems to me that you could convert them to you're needs. What you're show ing isn't too much different than the Cadillac covers Time Machine resins address is 773 Fitzpatrick Road Nashville Tennesee 37214 or go to timemachineresin@comcast.net or timemachineresin.bravehost,com/ EdShaver

And amazingly enough...they're back on Feebay again this week, with a new name and only a feedback score of 2.

BEWARE! They have taken money from a ton of people who have never gotten their items. They've been kicked off of Feebay multiple times.

Those dogdishes are much, much smaller than Cadillac sombrero full wheelcovers.

Thanks for the heads up guys! ;)

I had noticed those poverty caps too and was thinking about getting 'em!

I swear folks stare at the ceiling at midnight------------beating the back of their hands against the headboard, wondering how to beat you and I out of our money! ;)

You know the real sad thing here is that the products they produce are well done and many are only done by them.

I wasn't done , what I was going to say was , I bought some things from them at a show a few years ago and they are nice products. However, if you pay and never get them it doesn't matter how nice the parts are.

Just my 2 cents.

I think I bought from this guy under the name xcytabl36. I actually made two seperate purchases from him: one by m.o. and the other by Paypal. He even held off shipping the items so we could combine shipping them. I was very pleaseed with the parts I got. fast and acurate.

I dont know you guys tell me if its him.

I bought a set of wheels from AFX nScale a few years back with no problems. I guess things have changed since then. Too bad, they had a nice selection of stuff and the quality is good.

You can also find him here to this is his new ebay name http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZsilegran54gn or try here too http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZtangtang2QQhtZ-1 good luck in your finds. You and everyone else is looking

for him. It's sad he has a great product I've used all his resin rims for my builds and I've gone and used other resin casters

rims, but to me his are the best by far. I should have bought stock of them o'well.......................

I'd swear that you might be able to adapt a pop rivet head for metal caps with a little work. They just about have the same shape.

"A/FX N Scale Resin has been sold to another proprietor. When he gets everything set up where he can work I'm sure he will set up another web site.

He will also take care of any old order's."

That's a pretty tall order in itself. You think "he" realizes the scope? I know I'm all in with AFX for $95.00. And will we be able to find the new site?
