Further to your comments, it seems to me that different makers
might be able to use some of each others products. For example, if one maker is doing, say a 1941 Cadillac sedanette, and all the parts to complete it, it might be possible for another maker to decide to do a four door sedan or convertible and be able to use the other makers base, wheels, tires, grill, bumpers etc and fit them to a different body style, resin casting. Sort of a commercial production version of the old transkits idea. The work has already been done on many of the parts and surely the number produced could be ramped up to accommodate sales to another model company or model line, to produce something different that would no directly copy a product from one maker to another. Economies of scale in production on smaller interchangeable parts so to speak.
