Re: Jimmy Flinstone?? (friend picked up two of his peices for me)

Jimmy is a very nice guy. He's been around for quite a few years. He typically makes the model show rounds here in the mid-west. I don't believe he has a website. I've only seen him at shows. He also does a lot of resin figure kits. A few years back he even had a line of limited edition kits distributed through Testors. He's still a big player in the 'garage kit' industry. Mostly in the figure kit end of the hobby. He makes very nice resin bodys for autos as well.

The next show I know he will be at is in Louisville this Spring. Here's the link:

http://www.wonderfest.com

He mostly brings the figure kits to that show.
