To All My Friends In The Rocketry Community;

About this time last year, I was at a point in my life where I needed to "lighten my load" a bit. After some reflection, I decided that it was time for me close the doors of "Moldin' Oldies". It had been a great ride that I never dreamed would last this long.

During that time, I got to know Dave Miller, the owner of Sirius Rocketry.

It turns out that Dave and I have a lot in common when it comes to making molds and castings. Many of the "Sirius Rocketry" kits have cast resin parts and the quality of Dave's casting work is superior. Despite Dave's insanely busy life, he thoughtfully considered and finally agreed to make "Moldin' Oldies" a part of his family.

So, for the past several months, "Moldin' Oldies" has been relocating and is about ready to re-open. Please make sure to thank Dave for having the willingness to continue to make those odd little parts that can't be found easily elsewhere.

To the team that helped me get started - to Scott Hansen for giving "Moldin' Oldies a web presence - to the many, many people that put their trust in my workmanship - and to the many friends I've made, both near and far, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. Now, it's time to turn the page and see what the next chapter holds.

Thanks again;
Mike

Moldin' Oldies is Moving!

 

 

Effective March 1, 2007, Moldin' Oldies will be temporarily closing its doors as it participates in a relocation. Because moves rarely go as cleanly as one would like, I am asking for your patience for the next 3 - 6 months. I will not be able to accept or fill any orders during this period. Not only is there a move to deal with, but I also intend to revise the Moldin' Oldies inventory during this period and you can expect some exciting surprises when Moldin' Oldies reopens later this year. I appreciate your patience during this transition period.

See you all again soon,

Mike Schmidt

Clone classic model rockets with accurate representations of the original plastic parts. 

 

Welcome to the new Moldin' Oldies site.  Those of you who have been here before will certainly notice some changes.  I still offer several resin cast representations of classic model rocket plastic parts.  However, after receiving "input" from a particular model rocket company, I have removed all references to that company as well as references to the names of any of their products.  I am no longer able to tell you which classic model rockets may have had parts similar to mine.  Luckily, other places on the internet have all the reference data you will need.  I am particularly fond of the "Nose Cone Reference List" and "Nose Cone Pictures" found under Ye Olde Rocket Shoppe Building Tips

Click the links above to view the parts I currently am able to make. 

Visit the "Background" page to see how "Moldin' Oldies" came about. 

If you have ever wanted to try your hand at making your own cast resin parts, be sure to check out my new "How I Make Castings" page.

When you're ready to place an order, please follow the instructions on the "Ordering" page.

 

A special "Thank You" to Scott Hansen's "Ye Olde Rocket Shoppe" for giving my site a special place on the internet.
