Resin casting; anyone take 'commission projects'
Posted by Wick Humble on Sunday, March 8, 2020 7:31 PM

I've been trying to find someone who can teach me resin casting of small mechanical parts on 1:24-1:25 scale, but no one in our N. CA area responds.  Now I wonder if anyone out there takes on resin casting projects on a paid basis?

I have several pieces I'd like to duplicate, the best of which is a 1939 M-B V-12 engine from an old (very old) Hawk kit.  I have all the pieces in essentially new condition, and I'd like a few copies of it ready to paint and plate.  The caster could keep a master and sell repros, if desired!  I no longer have the kit, having glue-bombed it and used the other bits on other cars back 'when.  I'm a Harry Miller fan, and wish to use this engine as the basis for some of his DOHC screamers, for starters, and maybe a NOVI or two.  I also have some excellent Strombecker 'Scarab" Halibrand wheels (2-part) that I have need of copies as they seem better than what I've purchased from online suppliers, plus some Firestone speedway-style tires to build very old school racers.

I'm 74 years of age, and trying to complete a little collection that I began in the late 'fifties, plus build some phantom cars I dreamed of during fifty years of 8-to-5 work and imagining.  Thanks!  "It never hurts to ask!"  Wick
