Question 1/25 scale resin HHR kit???

I know there are some here interested in an assembly kit of an HHR, would like to find out approximately how many? Since no plastic model car kit manufacturer makes an HHR kit, would there be enough interest in a 1/25 scale resin kit to have one mass produced from a master? For those of you who do not know what a resin kit is, here's a link to what's arguably the best resin caster out there:
http://www.modelhaus.com/index.php?faq=1

I've built masters before, haven't had any molds produced for any though. I did check with one company that does it though, there's gotta be enough of a demand to warrant the cost of mold making...probably 20-30 kits for sure...once the basic body shell is produced, options like panel versions & SS bumpers & grilles can be added. Costs for resin kits usually range from $40-$90, depending on parts count & complexity. Let me know what you think!

Note...these resin kits are NOT for beginners...if you don't feel comfortable building a full-detail plastic kit, these are NOT for you!

I'd buy one... Not sure if I would build it--I'm not very skilled in "fine detailed work" ... Maybe I could hire an assembler?.....

It would be nice if the site that makes these resin kits would show a picture of some of them - so we know what we might be getting into.

Man, I haven't built a model car for at least 5 years. I got into photography again and model cars got left at the curb.

Anyway, Modelhaus is awesome. I'm glad to see that they are still in business. I bought a lot of conversion parts from them. But yea, if the price was right, I might buy a resin kit of the HHR.
