New kit maker
Posted by goldhammer on Tuesday, February 27, 2018 12:06 PM

Just got a flyer on a new kit maker out of SoCal....Salvinos JR Models.  First release is Buddy Baker's #28 "Gray Ghost" from 1980, cartograf decals, styrene, 1/25.  Looking for dealers and pre-orders.  $40 + shipping.

Looks to be an ok kit from the completed pics on the flyer I saw. 

Be interesting to see what else is in the pipeline for later.

That looks interesting. There's some good write ups online, like modelcar mag.

The cartograph decals are a real plus.

As far as starting a styrene injection company with new tools, I can't see how they can do it, but more power to them. 

You know these things. They'll probably be shipping in a year or so. But $ 40 isn't so much money that one can't chip in and wait and see.

It looks like the company has real gearheads behind it, which suggests interesting subjects. 

I'd be curious to know if it's curbside or not.

Only have one NASCAR kit from back when, Elliot's #9 Coors Ford, but might have to order one to see what it's like, and support a new maker.
