Are they still in business? I'm looking for a 70 GTX, and I think they are the only casters doing that. Is there anyone else? A 70 Roadrunner would be nice as well. I know there are 1/24 kits out there, but I only want one in 1/25 scale

I think they are and their sight is active. I bought a 69 Barracuda from them a couple years ago. I received it quickly and it is great quality.

take the GTX emblems off the GTX and you've gotta RoadRunner!. I have Kenny's 70 GTX, and his 71 Scamp. Both are EXCELLENT castings.( you can get a JoHan RR grille from the modelhaus.)

May I suggest . Go to <rocketfin.com> , at the bottom of the page click "Model Car Links" . All resin and aftermarket suppliers are listed . All apphabetcal . I have his GTX Body , Removed the 'GTX' emblens , add a RR Grille and decals = Road Runner . Bucket seats are an Option on the '70 RR . I am looking for the Stock Interior for a 1/25 Scale Road Runner , GTX or Superbird . I have the dashboard . Thanx ..

John, nobody makes a standard interior for the 70 JoHan Roadrunner. Models By Hart, Vaughn Hart, sells a 69 bench seat interior for BOTH the JoHan 69 Roadrunner, AND AMT/ERTL Roadrunner. If you can get ANOTHER rear seat from a JoHan Roadrunner(I lucked out and found a few of them at the local toy show.)then you can make a front bench seat. I've done it twice now. It's not hard at all.REMEMBER the color of the Accent stripe on the front seat UNLESS it was a BLACK interior, had a contrasting color. I did mine in silver grey, as it was on the cars I modeled.

The Bandit Resins '70 GTX is nice, I have it in my resin collection...for a 1/25th '70 Road Runner, I got the R&R '70 RR a couple of years ago, a resin repro of the vintage Johan kit, I assume.

I've emailed bandit resins a couple times over the last few weeks to order some parts, with no response. Does anyone know if bandit is still up and running?

A month ago, I sent a PM to inquire about a 65 PontiacTempest wagon. Two weeks ago, I recieved it, and it is a very nice Casting.

Kenny is most likely very busy getting wraps and decals ready for local racers and the start of racing season. Bandit Resins is a side business for him and sometimes the demands of it are more than he wants. I spoke with him at a show awhile back and between the graphics business and resin casting, it doesn't leave a lot of time for model building and enjoyment of the hobby.

I finally heard from Bandit.

I never knew it cost more to ship a set of vacuum-formed window glass than an entire model kit…….. :rolleyes:
