I don't even live in Finland anymore. All the tooling is there. I will ask my friend if it is possible. You will really need to make it worth his while if he has time. He is the original manufacturer of these shells. He does not speak English much at all.

I sent him a message and he told me he is not going to make more shells for now. He does not hhave the time for it now. In the future, yes.

There is another gent on Youtube at the moment that was making them about three years ago. He has a contact email so I have sent him a message. He also makes the Opel Ascona shell too.I'll fill you in on the details when I get chance and he replies.
Ooo , this could be another interesting project if I can sort the shells out.

You won't get one matey. I have tried to buy in the past and contacted the bloke who knows thw bloke that makes them and he says he is not making anymore.
I have recently contactes him again and he gave me the same answer.
I think if there are enough of us he might go back to production.

Spitfire, or Claude in Belgium is the one who can do this.
He would need convincing of course, but with genuine interest, I'm sure he could do it.

I pulled out of a one-off Ram shell for my 1/8 Raminator - unfortunate but costs for just one would be too great.
If there's a bulk order of 10 or even 20, or if 'somebody would consider being in agreement / sales' it might work ....

I cannot speak for him, but from previous communications, I know he knows his stuff - what capacity he has I've no idea - full-on work-place or small garden shed ...

Yes , I have thought of asking someone who is shit hot at making molds to do this shell myself. I work with a girl who makes sculptures and I'll ask her Monday.
I'll make a thread or something similar on here and ask .If there are enough he might go into production again.
