Anyone bought from Grimaldi Custome resin caster (meditrans65 on eBay)

Recommended Posts

Has anyone bought their resin? I've seen them on eBay, and they have a few pieces I'm interested in. Seller is listed as meditrans65.

just recived my order from him, It took  30 days from my order to hit my home. He keep saying he was working on it and will go out in a few days.Casting somewhat ok. I order the Moebuis ford motor which was casted as stated (pressure pot casting) but I think the other items where  just mold cast as you would have done it your self. He does stated that he does not have the items on hand and are made to order.  So did my order hit when he recevied several orders at the same time?

So am I 100% happy no about 75%. for what it cost for the engine and shipping I could have order the whole kit and had be happier.

Oh yeah that guy, should be other threads about him if you did a search. I have never bought from him as I'm also a caster. I would just say he is what is wrong with casters who resell. Most of his ebay listings use the original kit plastic parts for the photos. So he must not be able to get a clean cast worthy of a photo. You can still have air pockets in pressure castings so his claim says nothing about quality. What was it you where interested in, I have some stuff an what I don't I can add to my to-do list.

I did a search and the only things that come up about him are in one of the "recaster alert" threads. I won't knowing buy a recast product of another casters product. But what caught my eye was the 427 DOHC engine he is doing that is a copy of the Moebius Comet engine. For half the price of the whole kit I was entertaining the thought, depending on the quality.

yep...bought from this scu....er, ah person.  Rec'd 2 Corvette engines.  Poorly cast.  On both engines, some of the parts went from hard cast resin to to something flexible and bendable.  I took s video of bendable portions for proof.  He recast the parts and while recast parts were not bendable, they were pretty poorly cast.  Sent it back, petitioned PayPal for refund.  He never responded to them so PayPal refunded the money to me.

Blocked him on eBay.

Stay away! He steals others work and re  casts. Just looking at his feedback should be enough to decide. Also, I don’t think I could put my faith in anyone that spells, and forms sentences on a pre school level.

That's what I was afraid of, so that's why I ask. And now others are aware of the issues too. Thanks for taking the time to relay your specific experience
