SMH resins
Posted by Anonymous on Monday, July 31, 2006 10:30 AM
I was just wanting to know if anyone here has ever built any model's using SMH resins body's and if so what they thought of them. What's the quality of their product's like and what are they like to deal with? I found recently found out they make an 81Olds Cutlass body and I've been wanting one for a long time, the thing is it's a NASCAR body and I want to build it stock. Is it worth buying to convert it back to stock or would I be better off starting from scratch with another G-body kit?

Thanks.

Here's an 87 Buick: http://cgi.ebay.com/87-Buick-LeSabre-1-24-Nascar-resin-body_W0QQitemZ140012311539QQcmdZViewItem
If his Hobby Shop is in Lenoir NC, I've been there and done business with him. Great place. Some of the bodies have a lot of flash and depending on the kit, is a re pop of older 1950's/60's kits that were remastered. Check the above sellers other kits on the e-bay account, he has photos. I believe it is from this shop that he is posting on e-bay. Having seen many of the NASCAR resin he has, it would depend on the kit on how much work you wanted to make it stock. He has a 81 Chevy Impala 2 door, to me it wasn't worth the effort to try stock, but it would make a beautiful STOCKCAR! Mike

Thanks for the info Mike, I checked out the link and it seems like he's got some nice stuff and a good rating. Still not sure if it's just going to be the same amount of work involved to convert it to stock as it would be to start from sratch.

My opinion of SMH Resin bodys is very poor. I bought their '78 Dodge body and it was all but unusable. I've seen the '78 Olds body and it was just as bad. If you have to build it and there's no alternative you can make them work, but you have to want it real bad!

Hmmm, In that case I might as well do it the hard way. Thanks for your advice.
