Wanted: help learning resin casting (for scale models), decal making (Chico)

Wanted: help learning resin casting , decal making, (for plastic car model hobby) in Butte Co. area.
I'm a retiree trying to restore his collection of 1:24/1:25 scale plastic car models from the late '50s-early '60s, and I need to develop resin casting skills to finish this task. I've watched the videos online, but just seeing it done in person even one time would get me going! I have the Micro-Mark kit and materials, and have made a little vacuum chamber on advice from CL helper. I have about a dozen or so rare small parts, including a Hawk M-B GP V-12, and some rare Strombecker Halibrand racing wheels to begin with, and want to 'hit the ground running' more or less.
If anyone knows of a scale modeler contact I can use, it would be much appreciated by a 74-year-old ex-teacher. I'd also like to learn how to do home-made decal/stickers. (I have a lot of half-century old model car parts to exchange for assistance, if acceptable.) Thanks! Wick
