Question Top Studio Electrical connectors - Question?

Could someone who has bought and used these Top Studio electrical connectors please help me out by telling me:

a) what exactly is in the package? How many pieces>? what sizes? etc.
b) Are they made of resin (I think, yes) or metal?
c) what is your opinion of them?

Thanks for any input/advice you can give

Re: Top Studio Electrical connectors - Question?

I got them, both of them (A and B), haven't used them thou.

So they are resin (both connector and plug on them) you need to drill the hole on one side and attach supplied wire. You also get heat shrinking tubes for joining few wires (connectors) in to one tube or attaching tube all the way to the connector over the resin made plug.
You get all together 40 pieces 10 of each size.
This picture show them well


Good thing is that they are connected to the sprue with this side closer to the ruler on the picture, so you can drill hole and paint them without removing them from sprue.

You have mail!


Those connectors look awesome BTW, far better than the ones I tried to make in brass!

Re: Top Studio Electrical connectors - Question?

i've bought a few sets of these even though I have no idea what I'll use them for. Chances are it'll be for use as random plug heads in engines somewhere just for some sort of detail on various connections. I bought one to see what they look like for real and bought more instantly.
They look amazing.

Re: Top Studio Electrical connectors - Question?

Thanks Steve

I swear that when I checked out MMH before making my post they were showing them as out of stock also
I guess I either mis-read or Wong added stock in the meantime
