    Default Info on superturbine resin castings?

    Iíve heard of these resin castings on this forum. Does anybody know what these are like and where I can get a few? Thanks.

    You could try contacting him at TRW (@superturbine), although it looks like it's been a couple of years since he's posted anything there. He also has a youtube channel ("Jason Smith"), so that might be another way to reach him.

    Thanks Mark. I donít think he responds on YouTube to anything. On these forums he has though.

    He was also going under the handle of "Tomball Locomotive Works" but there's no current search results under that name either.

    I have a shell he made from a T1. it is a good casting.
    I think he found that the n-scale model railroaders who would pay for his products
    were a little too few for him to continue.
    n-scale scratch built chassis are hard to make, apparently.

    You may want to look through shapeways for n-scale loco shells.
    I found one that I was thinking might be good for an Atlantic.

    He said last year on another forum that he got married and took up his other hobby of motorcycles. He sold off all of his casting stuff and if I remember even a lot of his train stuff. He might answer question via email but I kind of doubt it since members on that other forum had little luck and for sure no castings, unless you can find someone that will sell you one their unused ones.
