I talked to Clare about his CPR autoboxes a while ago. He said (IIRC) the molds had worn out and it wasn't worth it to redo them for 'onesey-twosies'. But if the order was big enough, he might do it.
What I remember of the conversation, anyway.

I can assure you that there's nothing wrong with the business of resin kit manufacturing.
If there was I wouldn't be doing it.
I am not in competition with RTR. We are 2 different entities. RTR is focused on the mass market, with overlap into prototype modeling. I focus on providing highly accurate models of cars that are not available, or providing a superior version to the mass market models. Resin models are not for everyone. But not everyone cares about the level of accuracy I provide.
And in fact, I'm not even in competition with the other resin manufacturers. We all do slightly different things. And there's lots of room for each of us, as well as anyone else who wants to have a go at it.
