I purchased two 1970 Olds W-30 hoods and they are perfect! The rear spoiler, needs some improvement, but from the other items I've seen, they are quality. He won't email pics either, tried that.

It's Don Holthaus. He's the Chuck Norris of resin casting. No need for pics, because you KNOW you'll get the best. :P

I asked about that recently in an email to them about a non-SS Chevelle grill. I got a very terse reply stating they work 60 hour weeks and have no time to take pictures of anything.

Tom, I have a hood and interior bucket from a '68 Ambassador that I was going to PIF over on the Spotlight board. If you need them PM me your shipping info and I'll send them to you. It's all I have left of the one I bought in '68 and built as a funny car.

I am surpeised that is all the hours they work in a week... Don is the leader in Resin casting and probably sell 25-50 pieces to everyone elses 1... I know I buy between 50-100 pieces a year...

I'll take the pictures, if some will help me with with the posting them. :D I'll do it for free. I would buy more from them if I could see the part.

I know this may sound kinda stupid,but I have to see what the product looks like before I pay the kinda cash most of their products. Also wouldn't it only help the business to post pictures of their stuff, even if they have to put in just one more hour a week

The problem is that they produce thousands of parts. I'd rather have them filling my order than taking pictures.

Since most of their parts are kit restoration parts, I already have a good idea what the part looks like...I've been buying w/ confidence from Don for at least 20 years now. As far as their resin kits, there are photos of many them online, in particular a site on Fotki.

And the stuff they make really is high quality. My experiences with their products has always been good.

First you can bank on it that anything you order from Modelhaus will be a top quality product. Second Don, Carol & their son work full time producing resin stuff for the rest of us. Probably can't handle any more business.

Koolest Kruzers has a sub section on Modelhaus and has photos of some of the range. If your french is non existent like mine you can use google translator.

Thats fine for existing and/or a previous customer base , but imo if offers nothing for new or potentially new customers something to look at to see if the item is what they want . Pictures go a LOOOOONG way in a products success,,,,, or not .

I lived in Decatur IL for 20 plus years before moving in 2004. I never heard of this place, when did it start up?
