Re: RTR Resin

Pierre <pierre.oliver@...>

Not sure why you think I or any other custom builders would know what the pricing for RTR resin could be.
The issues, as I understand them are mainly twofold.
One, the Chinese factories requested double the amount of resin parts for the number of kits to be produced. Big demand on a resin caster.
Second, resin assembly is not a simple matter of jigs and such. Much, and I mean much, handwork is involved. Not something the Chinese factories were keen on.
Let's be glad that some parts of our hobby have remained here in North America.

Custom built resin kits typically sell for between $100-200 each, including
the cost of the kit. Maybe some of the custom builders could give us an idea
of what imported RTR resin might sell for.
