  1. Reliable Resin has LOTS on the plate right now. Got another project working that needed the repopped parts so we took the easy way out.

    Zoom Zoom or Crispy, if either of you two have the time or the desire to re-engineer these parts for resin casting, have at it and send them to us. Same for the wide body car. If there is enough demand for the rear fascia, we might offer it too. I just looked at the kit part and it does not have the "GTO" relief script cast in. Any ideas for how to do that one?

    As for the foglights, I know how I'll go about correcting mine when I build it. I would also have some ideas for the 2006 rear taillights. The headlights desparately need reworking too.

    Thanks for your comments and enthusiasm for these new RR products.

  2. ConceptCamaroProMod2-vi.jpg

    Announcing the first available Pro Mod body of the new Concept Camaro from Reliable Resin. It will fit the Revell pro stock chassis with minor mods. Wheelbase is perfect! Hood is available separately and Reliable Resin is going to be offering other "street oriented" hood options for the popular kit.

    Email Don direct at ReliableResin@aol.com for ordering information and be sure to tell him you saw it here first!

  3. So fill them dimples!

    Heck, did anybody promise you a rose garden?

    Even during the "Golden Era" of modeling, there were sink marks, and ejection pin marks....

    That is what seperates the talent from the poser.

    Quit complaining and get something painted fer'heavens sake!*

    *The above was said with the greatest love and respect for you guys and your building talents!



    Thanks for your comment Jairus.

    Since all I build are vintage kits or reissues from the so called "Golden Era" of modeling, I'm used to fixing all the little idiosyncracies. I wouldn't know what to do with a Tamiya kit :) :!:

  4. I'm afraid not Billy...........I'm at a point where I won't be doing near as much full detail stuff just simply to get more models done.

    The exception may be the Z06 when I get around to it.......and of course the stillborn '55 Ford.

    I've been superdetailing stuff for 10-15 years now and it's time for a needed change. :wink:

    Nice work so far, Mr. Obsessive.

    This is the same philosophy I took when I decided to do curbside builds. Engine and chassis detail are my "weak" points and as a kitbasher, I get all tied up in fitting new drivetrains in those old metal axle chassis kits.

    They're all shelf models once they are built, aren't they?

  5. I hope Don can put together a catalog--even just a 1-sheet listing... his website is out of date and ebay listings seem to be the only way to see what he currently has.

    I have a bunch of his parts and a Challenger body..great stuff!


    Check out my Fotki...

    http://public.fotki.com/MarcNellis/reliable_resin_pics/ or http://public.fotki.com/MarcNellis/reliable-resin-ebay-pics/

    The website will be updated when Don can find the time to get with his webmaster. It's not a "self-service" website. Meanwhile, check my Fotki or Ebay for the latest releases. I'll be posting new releases here too. Lots of cool stuff coming SOON!

  6. There are several people on Ebay that sell Fred Cady decals. I had purchased a number of sets this year and planned on picking up some here and there as $$$ permitted.

    But when I saw the news that Fred was shutting down at year's end this past weekend, I purchased 15 SETS of FC decals!!! That SC/Rambler decal is about the only one I haven't found...yet.


    MPC did a RS Z28 for its 1973 annual. The AMT kit was an SS car. What car do you want to build...rally sport or full bumper standard front end? The rally sport car was basically the same 1970-73 with most differences in the interior. The grille on the standard front end changed in 1972-73 but blacked out for the Z28 will hardly be noticeable.

    Reliable Resin has the standard front end 1970 Camaro SS available along with a plain grille that you could add photo etch Z28 emblems to. You can find a AMT 1970 Z28 if you want a rally sport Z28 but you would need the rear spoiler from the Baldwin Motion kit. Reliable Resin is coming out with a repop of the MPC 1973 Camaro RS that can be converted to a Z with photoetch emblems. Both Reliable Camaros can use the AMT exMPC Blackbird Trans Am for the interior and chassis. The Camaro dash panel will also be available from Reliable in the near future. Reliable also has the correct front and rear spoilers for a 1973 Camaro. Email or PM me for more information.

  8. I've done this also,on the rear tires from the AMT Prowler and the R/M Silverado/59 'vette front and rear tires,only I use a new single edge razorblade. Go slowly and carefully and it works well,using the tread pattern as a 'cut' guideline. I also use superglue to 'put em back togedder'....this is much harder to do with the soft rubber tires like you get from Pegasus,etc. but can be done ifyou insert a rim into the tire to give it some stiffness. Steven Zimmerman aka the'Z'man

    Hey Z,

    I've done that with Pegasus 23" tires 8)


    I've yet to build anything with this combo but it is way cool!!!
