Attention Thingie Kingdom,

 

Victor Ferguson has started making his line-up of Thingie clear bodies once again!

 

TrueScale and Gene's World provide the very best thingies bodies available in the entire world.

 

Either provider will make your Thingie project a reality!

One way is to contact Gene via PM here at Slotblog. His display name is 'Gene/ZR1.'

I look forward to doing a scratchbuilt frame with a Gene body on it. Have three of those to do.

Paul, you sound a little confused here...

Gene has virtually the entire Shinoda body line available as repros, as well as some other stuff, too. He makes them himself.

Victor has not been supplying his product lines for six months or so, maybe longer; it's unclear. He makes his own stuff as well. Check out the TrueScale website, specifically the blog there. There's also a product catalog so you can see what he sells, when they're available.

So Maximo is speaking of two different body makers who have no connection. Gene seemingly can supply now and Victor seems to be indicating he will be able to supply bodies soon, at least according to Maximo's info.

The TrueScale site just accepted my payment, so I hope it is active!
