B-N-L Resins; still viable?

Recommended Posts

I can't seem to get any response from them.  Maybe they are v., v. busy, as they sure seem to have alot of good 'stuff'!

From what has been written, they aren't accepting orders and have refunded previous orders. Not sure what is going on with them, I do know from talking with other resin casters that they have been swamped with orders and with most of them being small operations, many just a one person business, it can get overwhelming. We have seen some go out of business as a result of the demand of time required to run these businesses. A lot of work goes into making molds and casting parts, much more than any article in a magazine lets on!

B-N-L is a 'Cottage Industry' , as are most resin parts organisations ( from making or sourcing a master or masters ; to creating --and maintaining-- the moulds ; to producing the items ; to marketing, packaging , shipping , etc. , etc.... no small feat !) .

Personally , I'd rather wait months or years for primo parts or kits than receive lumps of cr@p in short order .

No , I'm not speaking to nor for B-N-L  ; just a general observation .
