Question What's the name of the website that has the F&F resin body kit parts?

Curious to where you guys order your resin trans-kits from?
Thanks

So far, I think all the ones we've seen on here are hand-made. The Supras are anyway. The RX7s are pieced together from the VEilside and C-West kits from Aoshima... IIRC...

I remember know, it was Cozmo's F&F Supra that got my attention. If that's a casting off of some other kit that's pretty good. Now I'm wondering which kit has the Bomex kit. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it is from Bomex isn't it? - Walter

Its all scratch built... as far as i know, the bomex kit isnt available as an aftermarket piece. thats why i went ahead and tried to make it from scratch. its just a bunch of epoxy putty thrown on a stock Tamiya Supra kit.

Cozmo6476, Excellent work! Now I think I'll have to try something like that soon. I have about 4 supra kits that I can play with. Oh great-Now I'll have to start another project that takes forever to finish. The Turbocharged ITR with the bodykit still isn't done yet. You guys are such a bad influence. .

Hmmm......instead I might just spend the time on making a 1991 Honda Civic hatchback out of my many CRX kits from Fujimi. Maybe I'll cast it in resin if I can go through with completing the body shell. Maybe it'll take less time to slap some putty on a bodykit. For the Civic I'll have to measure body dimensions. Oh well, I can dream. I've got so many unfinished kits. I must smoking some good ISH:bonghitte if I think I'll ever complete these kits in my lifetime.
Once again Cozmo, excellent work!!
-Walter

Thanks Walter, your integra is just as impressive to me. and dont worry, ive been working on this supra for almost about as long as you've been working on your integra. Its definitly worth a try. i bought two kits to play with and i didnt think i would be able to do it but it came out better than i expected.

HonoTurtle, PM me if you like or read through the thread on the supra. here's the linkF&F Supra Thread . i wont be able to respond for a while since ill be on vacation for two weeks. hopefully the thread will answer some of your questions.

How is yours coming along Flyonthewall? I'm sure it will come out great after seeing your previous work on another thread.

You should get that body cast in resin and sell conversion kits. I'd give you 40 dollars for one!

My goal is to have all the necessary parts for it i.e. bodykit, decals, photoetched wing, wheels + tyres, seats, gauges and nos. However due to a set back with the guy who i've aranged to make wheels for me, it could take longer than hoped. I'm also very keen on having the proper paint to sell along with it, i've had some of this mixed for myself and have discussed getting larger quantities - have to wait and see on this as shipping paint oversea's is a big no-no too!

As for cost? Not sure yet! could be in the region of about 20-25

20-25 looking at the quality of your other stuff Chris I'd call that a bargain, now get your finger out and finish the bugger

What other trans-kits/parts will you be doing?

Perhaps i should charge more then!!! ...Quite alot of aftermarket parts are way overpriced and this is something i dont want to do.

See sig for other kits, future parts could be - resin nos bottles, intercoolers, etched logos and more wings.

Just realised your S2000 in your Sig. That thing looks frikkin awesome! I've seen the FnF and i cant remember any of it typical brain of mine! Is that blue S2000 the one from FnF? if it is do ya reckon you'll be makin that kit aswell because i would buy...i would really BUY! The S2000 was one of the few cars i liked in FnF. I seem to be a hardcore detroit iron fan...not much a fan of Imports
