Hhmmm, It would be flattering to have something I made cast in resin!
It's quite a complex shape - perhaps they'd cut it down and sell it as two- or three-piece "kit" (???) :?:
I'll certainly think about it!!

As a multi piece kit would work well. Don't think for too long though. :D

I was on another forum and came across some bead locks already cast in resin.I will attach a link.
Freds Resin Workshop sells 12 bead locks for $3.00 US. They are not on his web site as he is uodating it and making a new one. He also has an older style Cassey Kahne hood(I believe).

I have ordered some parts from Him and they have all been top notch.
Hope it helps.
Grant :D

I think you're talking about the "sockets" on the frame that the front struts of the main wing go into (?).
They're just made from small.....dunno what to call them....cylinders?...tubular beads?...??
Anyways I got them from the local discount store, in the crafts section - I think they're meant for making home-made jewellery.
I just super glue them to the frame and the "streamlining" is a small triangle of sheet styrene.
I apologise if I've missed the point of your question - just let me know and I'll try again. :)

Yea I know, I didn't explain it good enough. The wing tree is the back bracing that holds the top wing to the chassis. There is a company making them out of titanium that is in a eliptical shape tubing rather than the usual round tubing. It looks like you had an oval shape tube for those braces, but maybe they are just thin pieces of sheet styrene. its hard to tell. thanks

It's cool if they look elliptical, but they are actually just strip styrene, as you suggest. :)
