I think this has been asked before, but can't remember when and can't find the post. Who makes the MT drag radials 1/25 scale on here? Who makes the resin turbos? Looking for several of each for new projects. Thanks.

I have tried to get some stuff from Shucky awhile back but I am not sure he is still casting. I know there is another guy on another board, Dom87SS who makes KILLER drag radials and turbos. Might want to check with him.

Ma's is the best choice on the tires. I have a couple sets and they are fabulous. The other person wanted 40.00 a set when I asked because they are 3d printed rubber. No thanks. Because I have received an overwhelming number of requests for turbos, I may be doing a special run of the "x-large" size next month sometime. I will make a post when they are available, so be kind to my inbox. For the record, I stopped doing resin over a year ago because it took too much time away from my personal projects. I now only do resin for myself lol ... but on special occasion I will make some stuff for other folks.

No more resin?? Bummer. There's been some activity requesting turbo's and I keep mentioning your name. I sold some rat rod seats to a guy in England and he wants turbo's. If you have any interest, PM a real email address to me and I'll get it to Patrick - or I can provide you with Patrick's email.

Two lessons learned here:

1. When a hobby becomes a job, it can take the fun out of it.

2. When you see something in resin, get it while you can because the source can dry up without notice.

Shucky, I commend you for realizing that resin casting was consuming your time and you had to prioritize things. While some might not understand that, I do and know that some things are more important than others.

Best of luck!

Ma's has pictures of the MT Drag Radials on their Fotki site, but no mention in their price list. I too inquired about a set from another caster and want to see my options, price-wise.

Mike (Shucky) is right about not having any personal time when you get into casting. I reached that point quite a while ago but decided to push on as I hate to turn a fellow modeller away. However.....at this time I will take drag radial orders but not take any other new orders until I'm caught up & finish the masters for the cars I've been working on. I enjoy the challenges of mastering/casting but have run out of spare time & need to replenish my supply. :wacko:

I THINK cuzzin Al is sayin he'll ONLY take orders for the drag radials, an nothing else right now, till he's caught up on his 'Other' masters.

Thanks for the kind words guys; I try to make everything as best I can. I will still take drag radial orders only.

If anyone is interested I'll start a new post to show where my new supply of spare time is going....... ;)
