        Thank you, sir. I am trying to keep up with Greenman and Dave Reinecke. They cast some beautiful pieces. In another week, complete kits will be available. The detail parts are going into a mold tonight.

          Before anyone orders, I am making a resin chassis. The black resin is very hard and can be brittle in stress areas. I recommend reinforcing the bearing carriers front and back. The 'pod' is just a motor carrier and has almost no movement built into it. The chassis is not recommended for serious competition. It should be fine for home tracks running a 'few parade laps.' I recommend using the factory chassis for proxies.

          Order up. I am pouring a few in light tan this weekend. Photos of the grill and other detail parts on Monday.

                  Thanks, guys. I am making parts every night. Let me apologize in advance if I don't email each of you when they ship. Things are a bit hectic.

                      Shipping first sets this week. The chassis will be tan, not black. The softer resin will be more forgiving to bushing insertion and removal.

                          little boat .

                          was surprised that enzo named this little roadster a boat . rick has done it justice . crisp ! very light and as close to any original . which i happen to have . he has done a fine job with this cast . lookin` forward to finishin` mine and havin` a second livery for my ninco 166 .

                            Mine arrived a couple of days ago but I didn't get a chance to look at it until last night, I was very, very impressed with the quality of all the parts. The car won't require much in the way of prep, really nice work!

                            I can't wait to have this thing together, hopefully I can do it justice.

                            What's the story with the 356?

                              I'm taking a brief detour from the next body to make those figures that everyone wants. Four molds are made so far and the samples look pretty good.
