hehe.. shit man... went over a couple of weeks ago, to go through some of this models in his garage. after 2 hours I got tired of it.. that was just in his garage. He has more model kits then what me and my brother had when we had our store that sold models kits and bike parts. I'm sure your the same too.. but gawddamn... he had some OLD orignal kits, very damn nice.

One would go to the tons of diff catsers and ask them to do it for them.. Wait about two months and I will be able to repop it.. Most casters wont repop other casters stuff unless its not available anymore.. Later Rick S.

a coupkle of choices would be to start doing casting yourself or find somebody that does it. like for instance... i know 5 or 6 people that does it, Tone knows a guy or 2 and poppa knows a guy.

You're right, I do have one. I've never posted anything off the German site.





And no, I will not sell it. And yes, I do have an ethical problem recasting anything I have. Someone worked hard to make an accurate replica, and I have no right to take credit for it and make money off of it without permission. No different than plagiarism. Repopping an old model that is no longer made is different. Resin casting is an expensive and time comsuming process as well. Twenty four hours to make a mold, twenty four hours to cure a part, and who know how much time to clean up the master and the product.

Just so people know, this Cutlass comes with no headlights and no grille (but you use the Grand National for everything else), and comes with a nasty under curl to the doors. Me and a friend split 3 of them and all had the same problem. I've talked with other people who bought stuff from Showtime and we agree that he was pulling the resin from the mold too soon and deforming the final product.

I believe Carlos Alazar (Salazar?) ran Showtime, and probably due to time, he's limited or stopped making resin.
