Jerry’s Resin Realm – Find almost any car you can imagine

October 1, 2011

by Iggy Perez

One day, surfing the net, I found a forum discussion about resin bodies from somewhere called Resin Realm by Jerry. As I visited the site, I was stunned! Jerry has a variety of bodies that could make any junkyard diorama look like out of this world!

Let me show you a few examples:

 

This is a 55 Chevy. You need AMT’s 55 Sedan as a donor to finish this car. It comes with detailed info plus color charts for the Bel Air, the 210 and 150 models.

This one is a special one: a 55 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria. As you know, my brother owns one (in real size, that is) and you can only find the 56 scale kit – well, Jerry fills that void with this resin kit. All you need is the 56 AMT Kit to complete the build.

What about this 53 Ford Mainline? I love to see 4-door bodies! You could build a police car out of it – or maybe just an old family car as a junker! This kind of cars could make  a junkyard diorama look just real!

These are the country wagon and delivery versions of the 53 Ford. I could imagine building a row of 53 Fords on a junkyard diorama. The 53 Ford Victoria by Lindberg, the four door, the delivery and the station wagon!! That would look just awesome! O wait! I forgot to mention that Jerry also offers the Custom Line two door sedan, check out the pic of a build model below:

What about that! Four different versions of the same car! This kind of variety could make any diorama look more realistic. Most of the times you only the the high end models from the big kit makers. The Resin Realm offers some other things beyond that.

And these were just a few examples among many others such as:

Jerry usually includes the different interior / exterior color combinations for each car and some pics of real cars. That is really a big help, while building your models.

And there is much more from where these pics came from! I have to get myself some of these…

These are just a few of resin kits:

Jerry’s one of the nicest people you can do business with. Beautiful castings. My ’53 Ford Victoria model is featured on his Color and Detail page for that model. I hope he expands that feauture to other cars.

I’m still looking for a 1941 Chevrolet 2 or 4dr sedan resin car in 1/25 scale. Also a 1941-46 chevrolet or GMC COE would be nice.

If i’m from Romania any chance that one of Jerry’s casts may be delivered here? can i order?

Iggy October 16, 2011 at 8:27 pm

As far as I know, he has shipped things to Europe already before. But I would ask him directly, via his website.

Wow,
What an amazing story and what quality of cars. Now my story I have been taking insulin since the age of 13 I am now 48, 4 years ago my kidneys went out on me and I was working for the city of Atlanta airport designing signs, I did my dialysis at home so I could continue to work. Well I got laid off last June and in August I had to switch to hemo dialysis which is in clinic pulling blood out and filtering it. It is a horrible process but, it is what I must do to live for my wife and teenage daughter. The worst thing about it is you cannot work (Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.) for dialysis. All that said disability is about $600.00 a month and it takes about a year to get that! I need to find a way to help my wife pay bills and I like the 90’s Cadillac’s and Lincolns and want to learn how to pour the molds myself and hopefully start to sell to older to guys like myself with like interest. Any info you have or contacts would be greatly appreciated I would be willing to pay you for your time and expertise. Also if you have older equipment I could use let me know I know nothing now about how to do the chrome bumper, windshield, tires, hubcaps, etc. Is there anyone I could contract to build a mold for me until I get the hang of it? AMAZING! I hope to hear from you soon.

Hi!

Jerry have some nice stuff, and they look very very nice. I like the fact that he cleans them before shipping, making the buildingprocess way easier. Check also out the link to Star Model at the webpage. Star model is selling casting from several companies, anad if Jerry is a nice guy, so is Steve. Sadly are not all the kits/transkits as nice as the two guys. But that is not theire fault.

When it comes to the Jimmy Flintstone castings, they are betweene the better ones, but not all are of the same quality.
R&R’s castings are not that good, but even here there are differences on the casting quality. A bigger problem are the actuall look of the different transkits/kits, compared to theire 1/1 siblings. Thankfully the picture gallery at the Resin Realm/Star Models webpages are very good, and You could actually see most of the problems alredy there.
Hendrix castings is about the same quality as the R&R castings. Not long ago I bought one ’60 Ford Country Squire, which was Hendrix casting. It would be easier to make the station wagon by myself, using the AMT Deora windshield section, which is a Ford SW rear window, and the AMT ’60 Starliner kit. The wings was far from aligned, and the tailwindow was not aligned properly when comparing the roofline on the right, and left side.
On the other side, I’ve seen some Hendrix transkits that have been very nice.
Aardwark/Model Martin are way better, and equals Jimmy Flintstone when it comes to quality.
Take Your time, ask if anyone have any knowledge about the kits, before buying, if You don’t know the products from earlier. Even when building junkers, it is nice if the kit looks correct from the beginning.

Hi Tor, thank you for the extensive feedback and tips regarding other casting producers!

good site

Gene Stribling December 28, 2012 at 7:35 am

we like to get the sedan Delivery is it a ket or just a body? we like to have one we have the real one hear in san Diego

Iggy December 29, 2012 at 10:04 am

Hello Gene,

Jerry offers these as modification bodies. So you need to buy a kit separately. Jerry gives you a hint on his website, so you know which kit you should buy to use a specific body with. For the Sedan Delivery, as I recall, you need the 1953 Ford Kit from Lindberg.

Have fun!

Iggy
